The addition of /announcements is great and as a Moderator I love it.
There is one big issue that i've noticed though... it's sort of defeats the point if you have a very active chat. It will show up for a couple of seconds at best before it's gone.
I think it would be great if we had the option to pin the announcement at the top of chat. Similar to how we can manage suspicious users by clicking a flag, maybe add a "pin" icon to the top right corner of the announcement. The pinned message would be at the top of everyone's chat.
/announcepurple We are aware there are some technical difficulties with the webcam. The streamer is working their hardest to get it back online. Thank you :)
After we hit enter, we can click a little pin icon that will be visible to the moderator or streamer to have that announcement pinned to the top of chat. When we are tired of that message being pinned, we click the pin icon again and its vanishes.
I understand there are similar requests for normal messages in the past; however, this is targeted at announcements feature which i feel helps those requests as well.
