    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.

    Now /me messages blend in with the 𝘧𝘢𝘬𝘦 𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘤 𝘶𝘯𝘪𝘤𝘰𝘥𝘦 𝘭𝘦𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 and as others have pointed out, are harder to read.

    "/me" designates an action, which is why the color is the same as the name and there is no colon between the username and the text - there is no chat message. It should not be black/white, it should be the same color as the username.

    It makes bot commands WAY less readable, and makes those messages blend into the mess of the rest of chat.

    To me, this is on par with changing the style of hyperlinks to be not underlined and the same color as chat text. Why would you? Was there some big movement to do this and you didn't even consider the other side of the issue? Didn't consider accessibility issues? Didn't even consider that the new design LOOKS TERRIBLE?

    Please go fix actual broken things with the site.

    I would also like the user's submitted comments to be added to Mod Notes as well, when they request an unban.

    We apply IP bans in Chat based on users’ Moderation actions in certain cases. We don’t currently plan to publicize the logic we use because we think it would make it easier for bad actors to bypass the restriction.

    IP Bans will not help to ban anyone, and will create more problems than they solve. Reset a router, use a new VPN, etc. will all give a new IP address.

    Not to mention when entire Universities or ISPs get banned and channel moderators ignore the pleas of the innocent, thinking they've just banned one person, but in reality have banned an entire network because their public gateway uses one (or a handful of) IP addresses.

    Your IP is not a phone number, and your public IP isn't even always yours alone.
