Is there any way to change what symbol allows you to alter the color in your name? My tag has a caret (^) in it, so i have loads of problems doing animations.

No there isn't a way to change the color denotation.

A side note, name animation (or name spamming) is lame. Not only doesn't it annoy peeps, but it also pisses off server admins since it fills the logs with a bunch of garbage.

General rule of thumb: Name animation scripts make you look like a typical "noob". It's distracting, annoying as hell, pisses off just about everyone who is at least slightly mature... and most importantly, is completely pointless. Thankfully a lot of servers I play on kicks people (or bans them) for using name scripts. But, there's always those turds out there who still insist on using them. All it does is make you look like someone who happened to stumble upon some crap ass visual basic program someone made to do the work for you.

animations lag people with low bandwidth because they have to process all the name animation crap.
