I've notice some members use differnet font color in their post. Well, for me, it's getting really frustrating. I'm using different layouts and sometimes I can't see the person's message because it's in a different color and isn't readable without highlighting it.
So I think there should be one preset color font on each layout and not have the poster change it. Of course this is just my opinon. Not sure about anyone else.

I'm gonna have to agree with you on this. Reading pink font on "Green's Ivy is no fun at all. >_<

can't you people be considerate enough to think that NOT EVERYONE USES THE FORUM'S DEFAULT SKIN?

I know. Hence why I don't use pink often.


And if you don't like it, too bad. Some people enjoy having a color.


There is such thing as highlighting.

I have to agree with Kip-kip and Tommy. You know my opinion on this, Greggy. I've commented on YOUR font colour several times, IIRC.

And like I've said, there is such thing as highlighting.

Yes, unless people are not using a mouse, and uses the "Tab" key all the time. (I think I used to do that) But I think those make up a minority of users here.
I don't use fonts of a different colour unless I have a good reason to.

Highlighting is.... annoying. o_O It's harder to read highlighted anyway XD. *glares @ Greggy and random person somewhere*

i agree with greg using fonts is fun cuz the text normally used is boring and i try to make text easier to see but it probably isnt but greg's right

I just don't get why it's fun to make your text colored differently. What, to get attention? So that everybody knows it's you speaking? So everybody knows that you have no respect for other people? Oh please. The default font colors are there for a reason, which is that they are EASY TO READ. Highlighting text is annoying and eye-hurting. Stop it, please.

Oh, yah? I hate highlightning --;;
Maybe we could have an option at the User CP that "enables Altered Fonts" or something like that... o__o;;

That would be a really good idea, if we could make it happen. An option that lets you strip "color" tags. But would that affect sig colours too?

aRedMoon
October 14th, 2004, 03:05 PM
Most likely yes. -_-

But if you aren't gonna read post colors, why read sig colors?

thats true and besides what do you think the colors are for anyway? if no one can use colors on PC then it wouldnt be right! Thats what the colors are for! XD I have a hard time seeing greg's text but usaully i just highlight it or something or i look at it more closely cuz i use the midnight misty theme 0_o

We have to be careful we don't go the way of SPPF. :P

Maybe we can have only the font colors that work on all layouts. Just a suggestion.

EDIT:

I like that idea. I just thought about it after I posted.

But there is no font colour that works on every layout because we have things ranging from white to dark blue...

and theres also no point in taking the colors off cuz then you cant use them in your siggys and i like that!

ok there is only a minoority of people on this forum ho use different colours
so there is 2 options
-dont worry about it because not many people are selfish enough to do it anyway
-stop people using different font colours and seen as there isnt many then its not a big issue

An option to just ignore font styling would probably be the easier way. No idea how to add that though. =\

It'd have to be a hack.

Something similar to how you can set it to strip out the [img] code.

Kairi

I want the code that doesn’t process any other code inside it, if only for explaining to newbies how to use tags. ;_;

aRedMoon
October 15th, 2004, 12:23 PM
Aye. We need a "Please Install This Hack" thread...

Kairi
October 15th, 2004, 12:30 PM
Or better yet more people with FTP access. XP *nod nod*

aRedMoon

That'd work too I guess...

Try making a custom BBCode using the <textbox> code. o_o

But Abby, I'm sure you can't be trusted with FTP access. Imagine. We'd come to PC one day and instead of seeing the forum we'd just see a big Abby x Sawah pic.

Kairi
October 17th, 2004, 01:09 PM
Or we’d see the hacks installed and fixed images and the like~

Geometric-sama

I'm more inclined to go with my earlier view. :P

But you don't have access to the vBulletin forums. :P

There you go! So the only thing she could do is MY hypothesis. PC ==> Abby x Sawah shrine. XD

aaaaaa
October 20th, 2004, 04:27 AM
The forum COULD use an Abby x Sawah shrine
</pointless revival>

Kairi
October 20th, 2004, 03:27 PM
I could get Casey’s license. >=l

Of course if we just got like the two or three we needed, would be kinda irrelevant since I have little to add to the skins and stuff. <_<

Aha. XD

If you REALLY want an Abby x Sawah shrine I'll make it for you. What colour do you want it? Hot pink?
