Plus I mostly prefer the occasional officially colored pages here and there, especially if done in watercolor. Something about the rarity makes you appreciate them more.

Also, I prefer the fan-colored page to be put either after the original page or at the end of the chapter. Because the sudden change of style (from the author’s original style to the fan-colored style) often times interrupts with the flow and mood/feeling of the reading experience. But the weird thing is, when the colored page is officially done by the author, it still flows and blends nicely with the rest of the black-and-white chapter. I guess it’s because the author’s colored page is usually of the same style as the colored cover page so it doesn’t feel like it’s a separate work.

Under roughly the same conditions, including fanart and gag edits is also okay. But it's got to be pretty good.

It's also rare to come across a really good fan-color; most people just slap a multiply layer with flat colors over the raws and call it a day. And even the best of fan color pages are jarring when they pop up in the middle of a chapter, esp since fan-colorers seem to prefer pages with impactful scenes.
I can definitely appreciate the time and effort that goes into a fan-colored page, but please... post it on your own sns, on your own time. Don't foist it upon unsuspecting readers. 😔

Putting them in the middle is annoying and breaks up the pace or flow of a chapter.
Putting them at the beginning kind of feels like spoilers for the actual chapter.
Just put them at the end as a way to cap-off the release. That's the best option.
Also, as others have said, never replace the original greyscale pages with your colored version... you're not the author of the work, so respect the author's intent and leave the pages greyscale.

if they're pages at the start or end of a chapter, then I can just treat it as a credit page and ignore. But in the center and highlight of the chapter? Unless you have god-like colouring skills or you replicate the mangaka's colouring style, please don't. Manga aren't colouring books lmao

They're terrible if the above conditions aren't met.
