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.

This was never an issue. I have seen this abused in the sense of trying to trick people maybe a handful of times in my 7 or 8 years on twitch. There is no big problem with this as twitch makes it seem, and it's very well known that fake "donations" are just fake by now.
What this new move does do is make it a lot harder for some moderation and bot visibility purposes, as well removing a fun aspect of the site.
Has anyone ever seen multi colored raids, or /me Brain Power lyrics? All this update serves to do is make the site a poorer experience.TheRoundCube supported this idea ·
