The TagAPI enables users to display their nicknames above their head. This is toggleable with /toggledisplay

YOU MUST HAVE THE TagAPI.jar file in your plugins folder to enable using it.

RECENTLY ADDED VAULT SUPPORT. With vault all features (such as prefixes and suffixes) will work properly.

Namer is a special plugin that I've decided to release to the public. It has been running on the server for the past year and has made nicknames fun and entertaining for all.

What makes this plugin unique is the ability for any player to nickname another player. The way I manage this without getting endless nicknames is by having nick credits for each player. A nick credit is used to nickname yourself or another player. I have setup permissions for the plugin so admins can nickname without credits, while normal users must use credits to nickname.

I also support all colors, underline, bold, italic, and special characters. See for details about colors.

In the efcraft server we setup a donation option to obtain nick credits to nickname themselves or others. This was extremely popular, especially when users waged nickname wars with each other.

This plugin has been tested with bPermissions and PEX. It should support any permissions system that uses bukkit perms as well.
