    I made this thread a few weeks ago, and the suggestion was implemented recently. Having watched people use it, I have a few improvements to suggest:

    1.
    Currently, when someone uses a tag, only the person who is tagged can see it. I think the person who posted the chat message containing the tag should also see it

    2.
    A cooldown should be added to stop players being tagged many times in a very short time period, this will discourage tag spam and fits the intention of the tag plugin which is to get the attention of a user where using /msg may not be appropriate

    3.
    Asking for tags fits the definition of spam encouragement - this should be made known

    4.
    The format of the highlighted name could be changed a bit, to make it more visible and less confusing when lots of people have golden usernames.

    &k (the rapidly changing characters - a format that is currently not used at all in the global chat) combined with a thin letter such as i or l (this will make the random characters all thin) is a nice way to draw attention to a specific part of chat, with all of the colors and formats that are already active in the global chat.

    I think theres a glitch which is associated with the implemention of tagging, in ./l when you speak and the speech goes over one line, the second line (and following) would become white. When you copy/paste a website into the chat (obviously a cf fourm thread), the website isn't clickable.

    I dont think that it should be exclusive to the tagger / person being tagged. You could just use /msg

    /msg doesn't make a noise.
