Why is this needed?
Joining a new server and finding the chat to be cluttered with a hundred colorful tags that you don't know the meaning of can be extremely confusing and off-putting.

The Veteran tag (+) will be removed entirely. Instead, a VET player will have blue name brackets (< >) and any other player will retain grey brackets.
All player names will be white, even those of staff.
Here are two full color examples of a changed rank:
