I don't think the change is necessary or a good one.

@ is the universal sign for OP/Admin/Mod, in chatrooms. If anyone is familiar or frequents chatrooms, or will in the future, they will know what that sign means.

It is not necessary for the members to distinguish the different operator status' in a chatroom. In fact, it is usually best that they don't know the difference. The status symbol is mainly there to show that the room is being monitored, which in effect can detour inappropriate behaviors. Which is why some chatrooms have bots, just to show, give the impression that the room is protected, in which the bot does monitor it to a certain level.

And even with the bots, they still have the same symbol. Because the chat owner doesn't want the members to necessarily know who is a bot, who is an op, super op, admin, or mod. (different titles depending upon the particular chatrooms).

The symbol is a deterrent. If someone comes in wanting to cause trouble, and they know that someone is a mod with limited privileges/powers, they will know they can get away with whatever, if they know they have no power to do anything about it.
