Colored Names
« on: April 16, 2011, 05:16:45 am »
I implemented colored names using X-Chat 2's coloring algorithm, but I'm not entirely sure if I like them or not. Opinions?

I like it already. No question. Colored names are always good for me.

Hmm personally I don't like it, it looks too unfitting with the site. :( I would prefer with no colors personally

I like the colours, but I think the XChat algorithm isn't ok, what about a colour for mods, a colour for managers and a colour for users and a colour for lobsters? :P

Also some of the colors are really bright.

Could you at least give the option to disable them and maybe just go through a certain set of colors that would match the site theme? For example on TIMGUL every post count group had a different shade of blue.

Also have you tested if it's demanding or not on CPU load, noticing Ashbad's issue?

From what Netham45 said it's based on X-Chat's color algorithm. However I'M not sure if it's the same.

If so, I think I would like colors based on member groups more. However, that might be slower cuz it has to search in the member database. (Its all IMO/AFAIK)

colors no good!  Sorry if I crash the party, but after all these nice new updates, I can't access the site unless DJ disables omnomIRC for me. :(

Colors good! Well, not the current ones.  I think it should be based on whether you are admin/cot/anti-riot/lobster.  Also, we need to have an acronym for that.  caral? maybe?

I agree with Graphmastur: Each group as a colour, and all members have the same colour (Bad for me :P).

So far, nobody has issues, so I guess it's a client thing, have you tried rebooting?

I haven't had a chance to look yet, but I like the idea. Also, could there be a special loli color?

Personally I really doN't like the chosen colors. I'm starting to get used to having colors, but I think we should only have the following ones:

nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname nickname

THat way it matches the site design more.

Otherwise, use the staff group ones.
