I wholeheartedly second this, as the aforementioned Kit here. Preroll ads are an especially large nuisance during raids, where the friendly, energetic atmosphere created by the surprise of a raid is lost on those watching a lengthy ad. By the time the ad is over, so is the excitement, any announcements or introductions the streamer has made, etc. I fully understand that ads are a large part of Twitch, but would like to see some alternatives introduced where perhaps longer/more frequent stream display ads can replace preroll ads.
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.
