I frequently visit sites like Twitch.com and Chatzy.com besides Discord for chatting.
One feature that Twitch, Discord, and Chatzy have all in common is a command called /me. However, two of the sites uses the functionality of /me as it is meant to be while Discord approached it incorrectly.
Discord's /me command only functionality is creating the text you write turn into italics. That defeats entirely the purpose of using asterisks *like this* between messages.
I highly suggest that /me command, instead of italicizing, creates the text into the color of your said role. Twitch has the exact same function and so does Chatzy.
For people who roleplay often, I know they would find this command to become easily useful. Roleplay groups on Discord have exploded big time on Discord since the pandemic and I think they deserve to have more roleplay-friendly features. It would enhance these communities and make Discord a much bigger community for these people.
I am providing an example of what Twitch does with their /me command so that Discord may consider doing this.
