Useful Suggestions

1. Use Newtag if you want one easy, simple chat plugin.
2. Use the "tag_placeholder" configuration option to set a placeholder to use for tags in other chat plugins. This allows you to have the tag appear anywhere in your formatted chat messages.
3. With the combination of another chat plugin, use Newtag to give multiple tags to people. This will save you the time of creating a long linear list of tag combinations.
4. Want to gain more donations? Use Newtag to help boost donations to your server. Install Newtag and set the money amount to every donator. Whenever a donator speaks, it will show how much they have donated to the server.
5. Newtag can be used to give fun nicknames to players. [Warrior], [Guard], [VIP] are just a few examples.
6. Use Newtag to label who is a staff member on your server. Install Newtag and give the tag: mod or tag: admin.
