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.

don't change the /me it is NOT an issue I actually like the color change and use it to differentiate my bots from actual chatters. This change is removing a feature I used and loved and I liked making my text a color. Can we instead focus on a real issue like usernames that violate TOS and harassment on the platform?
