Mentions
Everything you need to know about mentions.
Mentions are a way to get someone's attention to your messages. Messages only work in public messages. Mentions are also highly customizable and can be modified in the settings.yml file.
By default ChatChat registers 2 mention types but other plugins can register their own mention types. The default types are: personal and channel mentions.

Personal Mentions

These are used to directly mention one specific user.

How they work:

To use them you just type in chat the mention prefix that you can modify in the settings which by default is @ followed by the user's name. E.g. @BlitzOffline. You also need to have the personal mention usage permission and the block bypass permission in case the mentioned user had turned their mentions off.

What these mentions do:

The user's name will be highlighted in the message to both the sender and the mentioned person and also the mentioned person will hear a sound. The sound is customizable.
If the mentioned user has their personal mentions turned off and the person mentioning them doesn't have the bypass permission the receiver will still see the highlighted name but they won't hear the sound. Also the sender won't see the highlighted name.

Channel Mentions

These are used to mention all the viewers of the channel the message is sent in.

How they work:

To use them you just type in chat the mention prefix that you can modify in the settings which by default is @ follwed by channel, here, or everyone. E.g. @here. You also need to have the channel mention usage permission.

What these mentions do:

The mention will be highlighted in the message to both the sender and the users that receive messages in that channel. The recipients will also hear a sound. The sound is customizable.
If there are receivers that have their channel mentions turned off and the sender does not have the the bypass permission, they will not see the highlighted mention and will not hear sound but everyone else will.
