For nicknames, colored chat, colored usernames, and colored names in the scoreboard I am using Essentials with Essentials Chat. I'm looking for a way to automatically add and remove an [AFK] prefix to the scoreboard to players that run /afk command. I have too much configuration committed to ditch Essentials for another setup, so I'm hoping there is a way. As a bonus, the [AFK] tag should be configurable with &e color codes Edit: This doesn't have to be geared ONLY towards AFK either. It could work for other status's such as BUSY, BRB, ETC.. Hey dude, thanks for these instructions. This was a really cool way of doing it and I have learned stuff! I have a few issues that prevent me from keeping this permanent though In Essentials, you have to change change-displayname to false, otherwise the tags don't show up. Changing this to false also removes nick names and permissions prefixes. The vanilla team join and leave messages Longer usernames get pushed behind the ping bars when a scoreboard tag is applied Here are my settings if anyone else needs an example T3h Cr33p3r Sorry man, I've been going through all the config files and changing/re-arranging everything possible but I just don't understand what you mean by which config and what standard prefix you are referring to. I'm assuming you have a similar setup or have done this before, would you have an example of that fix for Essentials? Edit: I'm so close to perfection. Was able to hide the vanilla messages Still trying to figure out an Esssentials fix for colors in scoreboard. Bumping this for the morning crew. With the scoreboard method now attempted; I'd like to see some new ideas from some other people if possible! EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.
