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:
Here's what it looks like on Icathia's client since he is the one who was tagged:
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
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:
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
