at the moment the formatter just adds @ in front of roles and nicks to show a discord mention.

Like so

10:41 <localtestbot> <Nicky (Tanuki)> @Nicky (Tanuki) @everyone @DiceParser#0764 #lounge @Vampiric Rubber Queen

If you don't know, it can be a bit confusing where the tag ends, especially with how discord doesn't push for a symbol like : or , to be used after a highlight.

I'm considering changing it so it would appear as

10:41 <localtestbot> <Nicky (Tanuki)> @[Nicky (Tanuki)] @everyone @[DiceParser#0764] #lounge @[Vampiric Rubber Queen]

to aid in readability

note that @everyone and @here will not be affected as they are special barewords in discord's api
