    Recently, I've seen a lot of people asking "how do you use the colored nametags?". This guide will walk you through it.

    To begin the process, right click the nametag, then follow the instructions that pop up in chat.
    To insert a color/format you need to use the "&" symbol followed by a letter/number.

    Code table:
    &0 Black
    &1 Dark Blue
    &2 Dark Green
    &3 Dark Aqua
    &4 Dark Red
    &5 Dark Purple
    &6 Gold
    &7 Gray
    &8 Dark Gray
    &9 Blue
    &a Green
    &b Aqua
    &c Red
    &d Light Purple
    &e Yellow
    &f White

    &k Obfuscated
    &l Bold
    &m Strike through
    &n Underline
    &o Italic
    &r Reset

    Notes:
    1. When using the &k code (obfuscated), it will only cycle through letters that are the same size. E.g if you use &km, you will never seen an "i" because "i" and "m" are different sizes.
    2. If you are using a color code and a format code together, the color code needs to come before the format code.(s)
    3: &r will reset any code.

    Examples of proper usage:

    Basic code!

    Code:
    &6ez&7pz

    End result:
    ezpz

    Proper spacing!
    Code:
    &a123 &bABC

    End result:
    123 ABC

    Using the formats!

    Code:
    &f&l>>&6&l&nGears V&f&l<<

    End result:
    >>Gears V<<

    Improper code:

    &l&f>>&l&n&6Gears V&l&f<<

    End result:
    >>Gears V<<

    Code:
    &aCosmic &5HYPE!&r :D

    End result:
    Cosmic HYPE! :D

    Code:

    &2ggggg &nggggg

    End result:
    ggggg ggggg


    Putting it all together!

    Code:
    &fArti's &6&lBUTTER &fknife!

    End result:
    Arti's BUTTER knife!

    Enjoy! One thing I would recommend doing before you rename the item is private messaging the code to yourself. It's an easy way to double-check it. Gl!

    Indeed, there are tons of places to find the codes. The issue is that most people don't bother to look before they ask. Also, I've seen very few that include examples. :/

    As for getting this pinned, I couldn't care less. I made this solely so I could link people it whenever they ask about the codes or when they whine about a refund if they mess them up.

    Sorry to disappoint.

    I right clicked the item nametag, but nothing showed up in chat. Also what do I do when holding the item?

    When You click the name tag, hover over the item you want to change and type whatever code you want it to be, and it will change it
