Name Colors: Least favorite part of new forum.

#1 Post by CommanderByron » Wed Jan 03, 2018 5:59 pm

There’s too many. That simple. The bronze looks red like an admin. There are way too many different colors. Keep it simple:
-Admins - Red
-Forum Mods - Green
-Site Developers (like jmo who isn’t a mod or admin but needs the powers of one to help develop the site. This really would clear up confusion and mean when these people post they don’t have to clarify their lack of mod powers or official status) - Bronze/Orange

-All others- Blue

Then donors should get a badge like the old forum. Even if it’s just a star/circle that changes color based on donor level.

Im a Silver donor and my name all but disappears against the gray background. Then gold donors are hard to read as their names are so bright that the letters kinda meld. I see the bronze donors and they look like admins. It’s just too many colors.

Icons are not currently implemented, so until a plugin that allows them is found, this is the best alternative.

Fair enough, once that is added it should really be considered to change the coloring for donors.

What color is a mod that is also a donor?

We'll be playing around with colours and icons for the next while, as new possibilities are found for the forum.
For now, Mods are green and admins are red, regardless of their donation status.

So it's just a display picture. Which you should let me have so we can actually utilize cool features on this forum.

I kind of expected the fabled ban-hammer to look... better.

Does having a larger comedy cube make me funnier?

5 minutes? We were messing with the icons for a couple of hours.

Let's just make this the admin icon. Don't even shrink it down. It's just about as obnoxious as we actually are as it is.

I feel like it's 2003 and I'm playing Runescape.
