Chat Tags GUI

Excellent Eula friendly perk!

Chat Tags offer a unique way for players to customize their in-chat appearance with special suffixes following their names, a feature that aligns perfectly with EULA compliance for Minecraft servers. These tags can be integrated with plugins like ItemsAdder or Oraxen to display emojis or icons, enhancing the chat experience with visual flair.
