    Hey all – thank you so much for all of your feedback around this change. We understand that this was a feature that many of you used in various situations, including the ability for Moderators to highlight or distinguish messages in Chat, and we agree that is important. We are listening to your ideas and feedback in this area – stay tuned for updates!

    To provide context as to why we’ve made the decision to remove the original functionality of the /me command, we wanted to address the way this feature was being used to perpetrate abuse against members of our community. While we recognize this change is frustrating for some, the safety of our community remains our top priority.

    I know I've said my peace on this before, but something new has come to mind: A great way to make these changes to help mitigate irritating the masses of your users, streamers/mods/viewers alike, would be do post something on Social Media. Make a poll, ask for input BEFORE making these kinds of drastic changes.... It would look better on you to get input for such issues before hand, from not just Partnered Streamers, but Affiliates, non-affiliates, and viewers alike. Having someone make such arbitrary changes for us because they can't see the other side of things is not a good look. You have 140 MILLION+ people that can give you input, and you have a team of people making these choices and frankly, sometimes it feels like a slap in the face when these changes have little to no "resolution" power on issues.

    This is pointless to change! At least let the streamer toggle it off and on at their leisure! Give us options and choices, not limit what we and our chats can do. Italics in chat are NOT as distinguishable as a fully color message. The people doing "false donations" and misusing these features should be encouraged to be reported, but don't punish the masses by removing a fun feature for the rest of us.

    Hey guys! We really appreciate the feedback that has been brought forth in this thread and just wanted to update you a little bit on what is going on.

    This change was originally made to guard against raid bot attacks. While smaller raids are currently viewable in activity feed in the dashboard, we are working on a solution that treats raids equally while guarding against abuse tactics.

    Until this is fixed, I made a completely free redeemable Alert in Stream Labs CloudBot's Item store that is my normal raid sound and image, so when someone comes in with a lower view count raid, they can redeem it to let me know that it was indeed a raid. Allowing bots that help us manage our channels, and communities is not a bad thing, however, there has to be a way short of user reports of finding the bots. I mean a lot of the time, the username is a dead giveaway. Also, there needs to be better communication of these changes before they happen, as it starts getting confusing when these things happen and no one knows what is going on
