Let mods send highlighted messages for free
The new channel points are pretty fun, and the ability to highlight messages is great. I'm using it frequently when moderating to make sure all the users see certain messages (like instructions on how to vote on something, announcing that the streamer will be right back, reminders about backseating not being allowed, etc).
It would be nice if it didn't cost any points for us mods to use that feature though, because there are situations where we might need to use it but don't have enough points available. Alternatively, add another similar feature available for mods only that isn't dependent on channel points at all.
Hey everyone! So sorry for catching this late.
We have released a new command for mods: /announce
This new command will help mods important messages stand out in chat!
You can learn more from our blog here.
Thank you all for the feedback as always!
The new /announce feature covers this.
