Restrict chat tags to certain users

In chat, there are a few @ tags that are available for use, @all; @house etc. But these are not allowed to be used by everyone, only certain people. I thought that maybe it would be a good idea to restrict the usage of the tagging by somehow only making it available to those users who have permission? This way, people who aren't allowed cannot actually type the tag into chat; meaning it won't get used inappropriately or by someone who doesn't know the rules.


I had to dislike because

A. The chances someone uses this for inappropriate reason is slim, they usually dont know tagging @all or @house dosent work!

B. Sometimes not every staff member is on, and someone has to alert everyone about Free Food or something else.



Normal users are sometimes allowed to use those tags while given permission from the Minister, Headmaster or so on. Making them only available for people with the 'special' ranks, will unable that feature.
