Thank you for the patience with us on this. This has been one of the most popular ideas on UserVoice and we definitely heard your feedback.
Today we launched /announcement for mods and streamers. Announcements can be used in chat to highlight a message and are available in 4 different colors along with the channel accent color. Because this is only part of the ask of this idea we are setting this idea to partial release so the community can continue to leave feedback on this.

Please just give us the /me color text back with an on/off toggle, that's all you had to do. Not only do the "announcement" colors get pretty lost in the chat anyway, they don't seem to work with bots or Streamdeck text commands, rendering them pretty useless even if they could be seen well.
Were fake donations that didn't make a sound or alert really that huge of a problem that the color text feature had to be taken away from everyone?
We are working on some more robust multi-month tech and robust upgrade/downgrade tech. So when we get both done we’ll definitely incorporate this functionality.
Considering what we could do to make some sort of loyalty system for subs work.
