    Hey guys, so I've been developing a FFA PvP plugin that resembles a Survival Games plugin, and I ran into a problem. You know when you chat in singeplayer or something your name is encased in these symbols : <>. I've seen on other servers that they removed those symbols. How do they do that, and how can I?
    Thanks, xXInfinityXx (Formerly known as MCJoshua345)

    @MCJoshua345 This is your chat plugin, usually EssentialsChat. Just edit the config to remove them.

    The problem is that in the plugin I'm making custom name ranks, and I want to make that in my own plugin. Or is that too complicated and I should go with EssentialsChat (which I really don't want to do.)

    @MCJoshua345 You can do it in your plugin, just set the format with the AsyncPlayerChatEvent

    Excuse me for being an absolute idiot but I have no idea what you just said. What modifications should I make to my event:
    Code:
    @EventHandler
        public void playerChat(AsyncPlayerChatEvent e) {
            Player p = e.getPlayer();
            String pname = p.getName();
           
            if(p.hasPermission("FFA.Mod")){
                String mod = "" + ChatColor.BLACK + "[" + ChatColor.WHITE + ChatColor.BOLD + "Siren" + ChatColor.BLACK + "] " + ChatColor.RESET + ChatColor.GOLD + pname + ChatColor.RESET + "";
                p.setDisplayName(mod);
            }else if(p.hasPermission("FFA.Builder")){
                String builder = "" + ChatColor.BLACK + "[" + ChatColor.GREEN + ChatColor.BOLD + "Cyclops" + ChatColor.BLACK + "] " + ChatColor.GOLD + pname + ChatColor.RESET + "";
                p.setDisplayName(builder);
            }else if(p.hasPermission("FFA.Admin")){
                String admin = "" + ChatColor.BLACK + "[" + ChatColor.DARK_RED + ChatColor.BOLD + "Minor God" + ChatColor.RESET + ChatColor.BLACK + "] " + ChatColor.GOLD +  pname + ChatColor.RESET + "";
                p.setDisplayName(admin);
            }else if(p.hasPermission("FFA.CoOwner")){
                String coowner = "" + ChatColor.BLACK + "[" + ChatColor.AQUA + ChatColor.BOLD + "TRITON" + ChatColor.RESET + ChatColor.BLACK + "] " + ChatColor.BLACK + "[" + ChatColor.DARK_GREEN + ChatColor.BOLD + "Elder Cyclop" + ChatColor.RESET + ChatColor.BLACK + "] " + ChatColor.GOLD + ChatColor.BOLD + pname + ChatColor.RESET + "";
                p.setDisplayName(coowner);
            }else if(p.hasPermission("FFA.Owner")){
                String owner = "" + ChatColor.BLACK + "[" + ChatColor.DARK_BLUE + ChatColor.BOLD + "POSEIDON" + ChatColor.RESET + ChatColor.BLACK + "] " + ChatColor.BLACK + "[" + ChatColor.GREEN + ChatColor.BOLD + "Cyclop" + ChatColor.BLACK +  "] " + ChatColor.GOLD + ChatColor.BOLD + pname + ChatColor.RESET + "";
                p.setDisplayName(owner);
            }else{
                String player = "" + ChatColor.BLACK + "[" + ChatColor.GREEN + pname + ChatColor.BLACK + "] " + ChatColor.RESET;
                p.setDisplayName(player);
            }

    @MCJoshua345
    Code:
    e.setFormat(String format);
    That will completely change the format of the message, so you can do, for example,

    Code:
    e.setFormat("I am a prefix! " + p.getName() + " " + e.getMessage());

    You should set their display names when they join, not every time they chat.
