Chat Font Colours (Colors)

Postby Furen » Tue Aug 12, 2014 7:41 pm

I know it's likely a petty request, but I want my green font back in the chat, and I'm sure others want their old colors back, or at least, more than four colours. The other fonts were always something fun to play around with too, but if it's a relatively simple request, could that be on a priority list?

HEAR HEAR

I humbly request my red and/or orange colouring back. (Yes Mith, I know you think it's a stupid idea. BUT THAT WON'T STOP ME FROM WISHFUL THINKING!)

I agree with Ren...Would like to see the colors (and other font types!) back in chat.

This Wolf misses her green, too. :sweat:

I've gotten used to having white type, but having green back would be nice, if you guys aren't too busy with other stuff. Either way, thank you for all the hard work you've put into the site. :)

Seconding orange, though aqua is a thing I miss a lot. I miss rainbow chat...(and being able to tell people apart)
Also, yes, some font variety would be fantastic as well.

This was a small part of why I stopped going to chat, no joke. It felt so weird without the colours...

Speaking of colours...Haha XD

Alright everyone, I've got an idea. Let's all start typing with the colour you wish to use in the chat.

Admittedly red is a little harder to read, but it's not unbearable by any means. Still think I prefer orange though.

I may be a bit old fashioned,with these choices but I like them.

I'd suggest naming them terminal green and amber.

Can we get links printed in blue and purple for unopened and opened links?

I don't know what your guy's brightness/contrast settings are, but those shades of blue make my eyes bleed.

lol, same here, Cross. If we're going blue, this is a nice shade, I think. The lighter shades are easier on the eyes.

Speaking of which, I like this shade of green! :bootout:

I'd like to point out the irony that this thread is more active than the chat has been in quite some time.

Ah, sorry ^^;; That color is a lot more painful to look at then when I first previewed it , woops.
But yes, the other shade is a really nice one ^-^

There were only two blue colors that people used in chat, and both are still available. I think there were more before, but don't quote me on that. A lot of colors are unpleasant to read on this background.

(this is the color I used before the jump, but I don't use chat enough to miss it)

"Aqua" may be available on the font color list, but it is actually white in chat...

So...uh...how about that tan. Grey is also nice. And maroon. Okay, nevermind, maroon might be a pain. But I think some more neutral colors might be nice, too. Though this is a good one too.

I genuinely want something like this. But I know it's probably weirdly specific.

I love those weird shades of blues and greens- things that get called "jade," "aquamarine" and especially "mint green." Is that a little affeminate? Oh well.

For a reference probably no one will get...You know that one greenish squid in a Super Mario Sunshine level? That's the perfect color.

Bumping for justice. Also testing these two shades of purple, both of which look a bit iffy I must say.

The one's a bit lighter. But yeah, H-sama. I'm not too sure about them.

Anyways, I'm here to support the bumping. Mith, if you have any pity for your people, please, hear our pleas!
