    I have like these messages i need to send in global chat because otherwise they wont notice it BUT when i type it in global chat they still dont notice it because everyone is spamming in chat.

    So my idea is that Diamond/Emerald/Obsidian, can change chat color:

    :Obsidian: Torchinq : Hello bananalover11 are you there?

    Because its kinda annoying to do &a everytime.

    Maybe a command like /colorchat

    /chatcolor

    Tyy, Torchinq

    Please no. It's going to hurt my eyes after a few seconds. Players with those ranks also talk a lot...chat will be spammed with a bunch of different colours.

    By adding this the spam will only get worse, people will just keep it on and chat will be a rainbow of colours.

    You could try to use this instead: /tell bananalover11 Hello, are you there?

    I don't think this is necessary at all. Apparently, you have an obsidian rank, which has a colourful prefix. You can also change your name colour to something fancy. On top of that, it's not hard to type "&" and one letter of number behind it. It's as hard as ending your sentence with punctuation mark. (. ? !)
    Yep, that too.
    You probably don't mean it like that, but if people are spamming, you should report them. :)

    Yeah, I try not to use color a lot because people think I'm just showing off. How about we just not spam the chat...?

    Will you tell them and check that no one is spamming? ;)
    It's quite impossible to let them stop spamming.

    Thanks for the idea. I don't think its something we can do in its current form as chat would most likely get horrendously messy...

    Donors can already use chat colour codes so you'll have to survive with that for now :D
