    New tagging feature

    Hi all,

    I'm pleased to announce our new tagging feature which allows you to tag a player by putting an @ symbol before their name in chat. We have also made it possible to be able to tab names after using the @ symbol similar to tabbing a name for when you want to message players to make it even more easier to tag players. This will send a sound notification and the tag will be seen in gold colour by the receiver.

    Here's an example of where I have tagged Icathia:
    [​IMG]
    Here's what it looks like on Icathia's client since he is the one who was tagged:
    [​IMG]
    To keep chat clean we have set a few limitations which I personally feel were necessary:
    • Can only tag one player per message
    • Only the sender and receiver will see the @ symbol in chat
    • Must specify an online username when tagging a player
    You can also click on a player name in chat to tag them if you don't feel like tabbing or typing their name in the chat box. Clicking on the player name in chat will automatically apply the @username in your chatbox. Here's a picture of what it will look like when you hover over a name:
    [​IMG]
    There is also an option to disable being tagged by a player, we have added this option in /chat and it should look like this:
    [​IMG]
    Disabling this option will stop players from tagging you which means you will see your name without the @ symbol and will not hear a sound effect.

    Note: Asking for tags in global is a form of spam encouragement and not what this feature was designed for.

    This was a very fun feature to work on and I hope to add more features like this in the future to enhance the server experience for all :)

    What an interesting update - definitely something that will come in handy. Was this inspired by the newcomers to our server who didn't know tagging was not on the server and would try to tag players when talking to them? Either way, very interesting!
