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.

The "Announce" feature is barely useful at the very most. Mostly it's useless. It barely stands out at all. The colors are not very noticeable. You wouldn't even notice it unless you were focusing very closely to chat already. It's not helpful.
Bring back the colored text for Mods & Streamers ONLY. Then there's NO possibility of it being used to fake a donation or anything else from anyone that isn't a Mod.
Any REAL donation message only comes from A BOT!!
I don't know how anyone could have ever mistaken any fake messages for a real donation, because it wouldn't have been posted by A BOT. THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW IT'S LEGITIMATE!!!
If the message doesn't come from A BOT, then it's not a real donation!! It's that easy. Just look at who posted the message!
