ColorMe - Add color to player names

Version v3.8.1

Description

This plugin aims to modify the chat with colors, prefixes and suffixes.
You can set the color/prefix/suffix for individual players or create groups and add players to them.
There are several supported third-party plugins and other supported things like Spout or an economy system.

It's a rebirth of ColorMe and Prefixer from @Valrix
I'm happy to hear about your opinion, just leave a comment with a feature request, bug, improvement or just a personal opinion.

As a reminder I want to say that I worked very long on this and really appreciate a 'thank you' in form of a donation! (See details on the bottom)

Only the bukkit permissions are supported! I highly recommend that you use a plugin for permissions like bPermissions!
If no permission system is found, all commands are for OPs only!
If you want to use ECONOMY, please use Vault!

    Has anyone gotten this to work with zPermissions?

    I've just migrated from PEX, and I can't get the chat prefixes to work at all.

    By the way is there a permission I add to a group in PermissionsEx so that the player is automatically in their corrosponding ColorMe group?

    @Bluesirius: Go

    Does it say [World] or <World>? Because I think either you have to set prefixchat in Multiverse to false OR remove it out of the format in the ColorMe config.yml file

    URGENT! I have recently gotten this plugin for my server. I love it, but there is one mere problem which is that the world comes up before the name, which i do not want to happen. DOES ANYONE know how to remove that bit????

    Hey! The plugin works great for me, but I have a request, and I'm not sure if I'll ever get an answer, tbh :P

    I was wondering if you'd considered updating the plugin to support UUIDs for compatibility with 1.8 in the future. Just going through my server's plugins right now and checking to see which ones I may need to modify myself to include the support :)

    ^ Yeah, it's mah site :]

    Hey guys so i am currently trying to start up a server and decided to use this plugin. However when i test it there is an error message saying 'These colours aren't supported' I dont understand. I edited the config as well as the colours .yml. I was really hoping to get my server set up and online by August (big gap cuz I will be away). PLEASE HELPPPPP!!!! D;
