    VTLO. The answers are the same, but the questions are different. See meta.

    @Schism Your "see meta" link is a circular link to this question.

    Haha I copied from the wrong tab. Here's the link I meant to paste: gaming.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/951

  • @Schism IMO they are too similar. We have closed many MC questions for a lot less similarity (which, I know, is not the best argumentation, but still).

From this answer to "How To Get Command Blocks Talking in Chat", linked originally by pppery:

The /tellraw command, syntax /tellraw <json compound array/singleton> displays a message in chat, but it gives you full customization of its output from color to formatting using json formatting.

A command block with /tellraw @a {"text":"Hello World!"} would output:

Hello World!

(Note that I have omitted some of the answer and kept the part of it I think you should go with - the tellraw command)

By the way, aytimothy also linked to minecraftjson.com, which is a useful site for generating tellraw commands.

  • Copy-pasting answers from one question to another is counterproductive.
