    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.

    "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."

    I'm still not seeing any context, just a very vague mention of abuse. I'd like to know what actual abuse was being perpetrated. I'm sure you can leave out the names and nobody will have any idea who you're talking about. Now, if by "abuse," you're referring to some people who should already know how Twitch operates by being an affiliate being suckered into thinking they got a donation, that's hardly abuse by any standard definition, and it's certainly not some sort of safety hazard. Could you maybe define the word abuse?

    I get trying to do stuff to "stop abuse." But, out of all the things I've seen Twitch implement, this has got to be the most mind-boggling of them all. It makes me wonder who is sitting around the table (or the zoom cams) thinking, "yeah, the userbase will like this." I mean...

    Anyway, please change it back.

    I think back to when I first started using Twitch, and I have to wonder if I would have bothered to continue using it if I had to jump through hoops to get verified. Perhaps if it were linked to my Amazon account it might have been ok. But, I'm almost positive I would never have uploaded any form of ID to get verified. I suppose if Twitch still allowed access that would be ok, and I suppose choice is ok. But, I would be turned off by any streamer who had "verified only" chat mode enabled the same way I won't follow or raid someone with "followers only" chats.
