    Hey all,


    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.

    Rather than giving just one option, I would find it better to be able to choose between both, e.g. use a switch in the moderator settings. I understand the point, that in big streams especially, the old /me command could get spammed a lot. The main use for /me is for highlighting important messages (either from mods or bots) but the italic font doesn't highlight the messages as well as the colorful font and could be skipped easily.
    Another idea would be to have the option to turn on the old /me only for moderators or VIPs or use a separate command for the colorful /me.
