Colored Forum Names

Postby YukiKitsune » Fri Oct 21, 2011 1:02 pm

Steps for getting a colored name.
    1. Go to User Control Panel
    2. Go to the Usergroups tab
    3. Join an army
    4. Let me know so I can set your name to that color

For those of you who would rather not look at pretty colors.

  .post a.username-coloured
  {
    font-weight: bold !important;
  }
  .left-box dd span
  {
    color: #105289 !important;
    font-weight: normal !important;
  }
}

Gets rid of the colors in some of the more annoying places, though I wasn't able to stamp them out completely :/ Edit: Now I have.

It'd be cool to be CI on the forums.

If we really wanted to get fancy, we could have all our units on the forum be from a specific army. Like, default OS army can be changed to CI, AB, RF, BH, whatever. But that's a different topic, methinks.

It'd be pretty cool, yeah. Not as awesome as CO pictures, but still worth having.

To throw the dissenting view out there, I find this incredibly irritating, my eye gets drawn pretty easily to differing visual stuff, and having rainbow colored names right at the beginning of every post (and to the left, but this isn't quite as bad) distracts my attention every time one scrolled onscreen. I already just block animated avatars/signatures and stuff, but I'm not sure if I'll have to write some client side css to kill it off, or get into something like greasemonkey scripts to strip tags.

That said, this is pretty easy to do, and if I'm the only one that dislikes it I can just put up with it.

I'm with Glen on this one. I think it would be especially annoying on the main page if everyone has different colored names. I also personally like how a different color is used to differentiate Admins from regular members (I think Global Mods should also have a distinct color), which would be ruined with the change.

Sounds cool to me. I'd like to request a light green if this goes through.
