[FONT="Verdana"][SIZE="1"]Instead of just the regualr plain blue color maybe Pokecommunity could give different coloured username depending on their tier. Here are some of my suggestions.

Pc supporter teir 1> blue

PC supporter teir 2> purple

PC supporter teir3 blue or purple

PC supporter teir4 a dark blue

PC supporter teir5 dark purple or dark blue.

I like the idea but not everyone would want to be stuck with let's say... orange until they donate again to get tier 5 just so they could pick one of the other colours

Talk about more work for the admins. D: Definitely not, IMO. There'll be too much controversy over the colors and stuff and it'll cause somewhat of an uproar.

Most of the colors apply to staff members' ranks.
So no.

People already complain about supporter colors, more colors will mean more complaints.

I've been seeing a lot of threads about supporters getting all these ridiculous benefits.
I'd just like to say that although we have donated that is to say expected nothing in return that we still get lots and lots of perks...

Styles testing, VIP forum, customize profile, special colored username, etc etc.

I don't think that supporters need to be on the same level as staff members and get a different color -- just because you donated 5$ more than someone else.

v-v; Guys we have a pretty italic name already... and we have a bunch of other things. I know there could be more supporter perks. There could be ways to other things too, like getting more than just a pat on the head for things like breathing. Again, we don't deserve any of this that we already have. We should be grateful and appreciate what we have and talk it down instead of whining for all the stuff we don't have.

Is that fifth cookie REALLY better than the first three?

I say no. What it is now is just fine, going into more detail is just being greedy.

I would like to see a customizable color name, but not only will that not occur for awhile, if ever, I don't expect it to be implemented into the forum.

You support PC because you want to support it. Not so you can get benefits and feel elite amongst members that cant support it. If you really want your name to be a different colour so badly get stylish / greasemonkey and do it yourself.

Supporters used to have no benefits, and now... urgh. I dont see why we need so much benefits. I only supported because I wanted to support. Not so I could get VIP forum access and not because I wanted to look so good infront of everyone else.

Why does every thread about anything supporters turn into a "You donate to donate. Not for the benefits." thread?
Guys, I am pretty sure we've established that.

Okay well it gets annoying when all the new supporters want to be mini-staff.

and why do all the suggestions to do with supporters have to be "increase x" or "give us x"... Why do you think the staff is having a hard time with Tier 6 and its benefits? :/ What we've got is already alot and enough

edit:
Um, XD; the colors you suggested are practically all the same.. D:
It'd make the whole system pointless. :[

I don't like this idea. Considering the fact that one color alone took months to come to a decision upon, I don't think making six completely different colors from each other just for different supporter tiers would really work out. First, it will take a complete thread discussion in the VIP Forum for different color suggestions, then it will be discussed by the higher staff for each of the six tiers, then there will be a vote in the VIP Forum and then another vote in a public forum for lower tiers who don't have the ability to see the VIP Forum. Way too much work. I wouldn't say for the admins at all considering the fact that it'll only take a few seconds to change the color in the Usergroup manager. I'd say too much work for everyone in general. Too much work and too much of a hassle. No thanks.

Besides, I think pink should be included. You didn't include that, so this is even more reason for me to turn down this suggestion. Pink is clearly a superior color. One person's opinion would be different. This would turn out to be more of a hassle than I thought with just the decision process. One person may think that one color gears towards one sex while another person may not like it and want another color. One may want a color of a lower tier, despite donating for a higher tier position.

Honestly, I don't care on the basis of "omg supporters have enough as it is quit being greedy!!!!1one", the only reason I don't want to do this is because already have six different colors on the board and supporters already get confused with staff. Having 11 differently colored usernames would be a nightmare from a new user perspective. Heck, I already think we have too much with the six we've got, especially since there are three differently colored admin ranks when all of us have essentially the same function as it is.

So yeah, no. ><

I dont see the problem here. I mean these people donated. They deserver to get some better more flashy colours. Staff members have Orange Blue and Red. I mean theres wayyy more colours then that. Why not just give it to them and make everyone happy? Ive been to many forums, and they mostly have ALLOT of colours depending, Usually it goes like this :

Mods = Green
SMod = Dark Blue
Admin = Red
GFX Mod = Baby blue (powder blue w.e)
Video Producer = Orange
Donator = Pink
Coder = Brown
Retired Staff Members = Grey
And then theres the section mods where they get Bold.

Those are perfect colours, but since we have Tiers, then we should just add some more colours. Not a big deal. Ive been admin on a forum before, adding colours just takes 10mins of your time.

Can you honestly take no for an answer?

It's already been decided for the reasons stated above. It'll get really confusing for the newer members because each supporter color would resemble the staff color.

And the reason staff now have different colors is for members to easily differentiate between one another. Plus, they're bold. They're quite noticable, y'know.

beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Also, I think that even this forum has too many colours :/ Especially the SMODs having BRIGHT YELLOW which does not look that good in my opinion. :/

Not trying to troll you or anything, but yeah :/ And I have been to forums with many colours, tehparadox to be exact, and its damn annoying knowing who is who and what color is what.

I find it personally frustrating if you're going to persist on something that's been decided already; it's rather pointless.

And I was just being honest and serious.

Hehe no trolling. Its okay, Its okay when you give out your opinion. But talking rudely that I dont like. Like I said, I probably dont get the respect here as much as ... some1 like you. Cuz I'm new and all, I get it. But hey its ok :D

So what do regular mods do that section mods don't do? And what would we need a video producer and coder for? We're not a fansub group

The colors are fine the way they are. We just changed them from blue to purple last year, like, the day I supported. XD; They've had purple for a few years, so I think the staff will do the same with blue. They look fine to me, for now, but if staff decide to change the color, then awesome! :D But until then, just except the way it is now. Just accept the fact that we even get colored usernames.

Don't you realise how much you guys are already getting for donating? Supporters are meant to be supporting the PokeCommunity from the goodness of their hearts, and because they want to keep the forum running. If you donated for the perks, know that the admins don't think so. They're just offering these perks just so that they can get more people to support the forums. Seriously, soon, someone's going to come around and ask to be a moderator because he/she's donated.

Oh my god! Seriously! You can change the colour of your post text, much to my disdain, put whatever the hell you like as your avatar and signature...you do not need extra customisation for your username.

Different colours for tiers? No, I think you'll find the tiers are already differentiated by the ranking images underneath your user title. >=(

If the staff would ever hear my suggestion that I posted ones in the VIP DCC...


We vote 2 colours.. Let's say Blue and that Rose Pink colour I got on my birthday were picked.... Then supporters could pick which colour they want to use.. But they could only changes between the 2 every 3 months.. Kinda like a name changes but there are only 2 options... Then again there could be more colours to pick from.... Anyway....



I want the Tier 5 supporters to have that Rose Pink colour I got on my birthday.... I don't care what colours the others have..

And what if the other tier 5s don't like that pink? There's always going to be a controversy over colors cause one person doesn't like a specific thing.

Angela, pink isn't going to happen, so I don't know why you're even considering it. PINK WAS A ONE/TWO TIME ONLY THING. :( It makes me laugh that people still want colour changes, when realistically (like I realised), I know it won't happen.

Also, what if, all the tier ones (example) liked pink, you're technically being selfish for wanting it only for the tier fives.

What makes me wonder is why the staff haven't locked this, just saying straight out no, but I guess they like their daily PC laughter, or whatever.

Lol supporters. Did any of you donate because you actually want to support the community or was it for the sake of perks? I know there are members out there who wanted to give something back to the community they loved and fair play to them, but this greediness is really making the supporters as a whole look immature and fake.

Well I think the fact that it makes the supporters look bad is cause well people are supporting a lot more then before and some of these supporters are literally immature to understand its for a good cause and do it for the perks. Its sad really but what can we do. vote pink as an alternative color!
