    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.

    The original /me functionality still works in VOD playbacks, so what gives.

    I believe that still being present in VODs proves this change was rushed into production without the proper checks and balances.

    As this roll-back request for /me sits at the 3rd highest active topic on Twitch's User Voice forums, I wanted to give me update from what I have been hearing.

    I have been receiving many private communications from Twitch insiders, however they are too scared to speak up. I have verified these heroes are Twitch staff, and have received names and contact details of the Twitch staff who advocate for these negative changes.

    Twitch are have had meetings on /me and this wider-community backlash, however the small number of staff who supported this change simply mock us. It's disgraceful that Twitch is allowing a small number of staff to push the extreme political agendas onto the wider community.

    On to a piece of viewer communication. A few weeks ago, a supporter of the 'remove /me' group made a couple of nonsensical points which had nothing to do with the usage of /me in an attempt to prove themselves correct - ie. Blaming mods or some garbage.

    This person sent me about 26 whispers ranting about how they were correct. Each time, unblocking me, ranting, and then re-block. They fail to understand that they are the ranting troll which makes the Twitch platform a toxic environment.
    In their rants to me, they confirm support for Twitch's position of 'words are physical violence'. What a hypocrite.

    I look forward to Twitch addressing this issue, and a wider problem of themselves.

    (Am happy to receive more comms from Twitch staff)

    Twitch could solve this issue by failing the change and putting things back.

    @OOR_Olymphus Your comment is incoherent and makes little sense.

    You haven't proven anything. You have stated a bunch of questions, and even suggested topics outside this discussion. Mods are a Streamers issue. Malware links are managed by a different process.

    The issue in discussion is about the 'highlight capability' of the /me feature. Trolls use the highlight to stand out above normal chat message, sure.

    This is true whether /me be coloured, italics, or as your suggest bold. This change did nothing to solve the 'abuse' vector.

    If Twitch believes there is 'abuse' in chat, then fix the chat platform. I am going to suggest that the Chat Team should not be paid this month or use their salary to gift subs to the channels they have wronged - maybe that will encourage them to do better.

    Edit: I see you are not affiliated. Get in touch and I will show you how to use your bots and the /me command to get some hype. It will help with your push to affiliate.

    @soulwarrior252 Clearly Twitch want us all to think and act like generic NPCs. No more fun. No more flair.

    It's boring as ****.

    On a recent Twitch stream, Joanne Soo (Snr Product Manager, Chat) said that /me was being used to put people "sometimes in physical harmful situation".

    Joanne twice refused to expand on what this meant.

    Here is a link to the Twitch Channel VOD with Joanne Soo talking about /me ...
    https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1005166215?t=00h41m00s

    My opinion is this is complete garbage. I would challenge Twitch to provide just 1 real situation, and the use of 'sometimes' to mean more than once is a joke.

    This request for Twitch to restore the /me feature has 4337 votes, which makes it the 4th top active issue on this forum.

    Twitch has failed to respond to various media requests for information.

    Similar to the changes in the Leaderboard display, existing account should stay as-is, and new account could be off or whatever community consultation desires as a default.

    Then everyone has the option to switch it whichever way vibes with their community.

    As @hyacsho wrote: "then streamers can customize the experience as per our community and chat needs".

    This change indicates that Twitch believe we all act and think the same. There was no accounting for the uniqueness in which channels utilise the /me command in different ways.

    Twitch may just really hate the flair of such things as the rainbow raids, bot responses, and the LGBT+ communities.

    There has been some comments by a people regarding color blindness. Some say it was better as it was, and some say it is better now.

    It sounds like the issue requires a re-skin of the whole interface and proper consultation under broader piece of work. It's not something that a rash solution discussed here can properly address.

    There would be experts who could help Twitch with special color blindness interface.

    Twitch are being trolled by 4CHAN into thinking /me was be abused by hackers, and they stupidly fell for it. Idiots

    Then a few ill-informed streamers thought that a donation message coming from viewers, and not their designated bot, was real. Idiots

    Twitch should have taken the opportunity to up-skill streamers, and streamers should have properly moderated their channels. But instead Twitch decided to **** its bed.

    I agree with the opt-in for any changes.

    This change should be reverted asap, and any future changes should be by a specific selection by the Streamer/Mods.

    This issue is the 6th top voted active issue. I believe we are owed more than "stay tuned for updates"

    Regarding auto-mod, I added 'donated' to the block list on channels I managed and the abuse problem disappeared. The word is not used by any legitimate bot on the platform.

    The change to /me doesn't achieve this. Is there an explanation for this?

    I only support the full restoration of the /me chat command. Anything less is the community giving in to this stupid decision.

    We should never be happy with a compromise when we are used to the full service.

    I would go further that this change is clearly demonstrated to not achieve its stated goal, as trolls still get to post.

    The Twitch staff responsible need to go before Twitch can claim that it listens to the wider community - these staffers can never again be trusted to have Twitch's community at heart when they fail at Amazon's mission statement...

    @funkiest_saturn The trolls can still post, and it is still a message from them. Twitch didn't fix anything.

    This change proves that Twitch don't see us as part of the platform community.

    They make changes for a few elite who are disconnected from the wider revenue-generating community.

    Twitch should have added 'donated' to the Bullying Auto-Mod, and the problem is solved.

    Anyone who wanted the word, which is no-one, could have re-added it to the approved word list.

    Save /me #me

    The removal of the nametag coloured /me respond in chat is just plainly dumb.

    Firstly, the bots which post a fake donation use the word 'donated' - this word is not used on the platform except by the fake donation message, therefore this change has not fixed the problem.
    Banning the word 'donated' fixes the problem instantly.

    Coloured chat responses are great for:
    1. It makes raids look awesome.
    2. Bot responses in the alternate colour make them easy to find/ignore depending on what the viewer is desire.

    The people involved in this change need to be sacked. They have broken a great feature and have failed to fix the issue at hand.

    A simple fix in Twitch's code would be to not allow banned, and maybe timed out account, to join the raid.

    People right now can manually not participate in the raid, and it seems simple to leave the banned account out of the raid.

    A little extra code could make it that banned account can't even see the post-raid host details. The account would be left behind on the offline channel.

    This is a great idea.

    To add to it, if no minute countdown is entered, then it is disabled for the rest of the active stream. And /noraid 0 could return it to normal.
