Actual we have -, + and @.

Id like to have some more to make it more obvious what perms players have.
Maybe you also make it configurable in groupfile.

Id like to have * to display a owner (+SHOWOWNER).
! to display an admin (+SHOWADMIN) usually has protects.
@ for operators (+SHOWOP).
% for guards (+SHOWCOP) usually has only kick and ban.
+ and - as it was but configurable with (+SHOWREG).

Maybe you can do something in 3.0 or make it possible to administer this per BZFS-plugin.

Honestly, why make it more complex than it needs to be?
+ is a registered and identified nick.
- is a registered and unidentified nick.
@ is a registered and identified nick that can ban/shortban.

You don't really need to know anything else.

Agreed. We really only need to know who is able to put the sm1te on us. Anything else should be relegated to a /help file.

Additional scoreboard info is being handled by custom scoreboard items. Keeping the basic ones the same makes it so that everyone can have the same understanding of what the symbols mean. If the plug-ins change them around, and different servers end up with different conventions then it becomes more confusing for the players to go from server to server.

In 3.0 a plug in can replace the motto in the scoreboard with it's own custom identifier and data. At a later date we hope to allow fore multiple custom sections, once the scoreboard drawing code has been changed to be more dynamic.
