Or they could add new ranks. Like a rank for blue names called Blueberry Buddy or something, and give everyone who wants a blue name that rank.

Just gonna jump up on the train of the post count discussion.

I've never cared about it (apart from colours). I just care that I contribute to the community, be it in off topic boards or in Gameria boards or those other ones that count, wherever applicable. Even then I still use the shoutbox more than all of those, as it helps contribute more to the community according to me.

In fact I've not had a colour for 2 and a half years and still am not complaining, it'll come naturally when me contributing to the community well, will cause it.

However, custom colours would be perfect, until someone chooses yellow, pastel yellow, beige or white......

having coloured roles would mean there's a finite amount of colours, like maybe 6-8, to choose from

Remember that to choose our colours we have to update the forum. Matt suggested this long ago but it just isn’t on his priority list.

"Thanks, that'll be helpful.  The thing with the update is that it's not the same as a normal "update" to the forum -- it's actually completely deleting this current forum and starting from scratch on a new one (though we copy over all of the users and boards and posts).  So everything that was added will be completely gone, and will have to be remade in a different way for the new forum -- they're actually very different from each other in code, so most of what we did can't just be copied over, we'll have to redesign things from scratch.

Some things maybe can't even be done with the new forum -- I know "ignoring users" is built-in to the new forum, but it works differently:  You still see topics and posts of an ignored user, it just says something like "This post is hidden because you're ignoring this user -- click here to view the post anyway".  There's probably not any easy way to change that, so we'd have to be okay with trade-offs where we lose some features of the forum if we really want to change username colors.

The other issue is that we lose the entire look of the forum with the Flipline theme, how the posts look, how the boards look, how the menus look, etc.  It's not compatible at all with the theme this forum uses, so we need to design a new theme (in a new format) to try to match it as close as possible -- though it probably won't be exactly the same.

And there wouldn't be any going back to the old forum either, once we copied all the users and posts to the new forum it formats everything differently, so you can't switch it back to the old one.  So if you didn't like how the new forum looked or worked, you'd be out of luck since we'd be stuck with it permanently."

They could potentially be abused as well.

There's literally zero benefit in adding moving text, shadow text, and text sizes. I'm glad they were removed.
