    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.

    It became hellish for the moderators to speak. People simply ignore italics and we have to spam to be seen. Please put the colors back. For those who don't want viewers to speak in /me, just putting a timeout of 2 sec was enough.

    People do not see moderators messages anymore. Same for bots promoting news or events. Italic is as good as invisible.
    It would be really great if mods and bots could keep the function.
    Thank you for your attention.
