Purple is the colour of royalty or something. (Though I'm fairly sure it's a somewhat redder purple than the one you have in mind).
What is not the answer to this question?

Is that possible? Your name in a different colour? I'd imagine not, cuz then Red, Green and Blue would automatically be unavailable, seeing that they're reserved for Admins, Mods and Junior Mods. Unless he a new colour scheme were made... Like say Black, or Grey, for all members above 1k or 2k posts...

Don't forget Yellow for donators lol But a color scheme for regular members would be cool.

I wasn't serious, but it would be extremely cool.

Though I suppose black (instead of dark blue) might work for those above 1000 posts (or top 25 posters maybe).

Yea. It is possible, infact we could make every user a different color, at least one of the Admins could. But that would also requires 1000s of usergroups which no one would want to make.

I think at the moment don't expect anything, however there has been small discussion about a remake of one of the older usergroups, which could possibly give certain users new colors.

There are 21 users with more than 1000 posts and at least 6 of them already have specific colours. That cuts the numbers down, at least. ;)

But aside from that, as of right now, the colours help to distinguish at a glance the authorities or donators. Giving everyone the choice to customize their name colour would remove that. For example, before the position of junior mod was created, i had been eying that particular shade of blue, and would love to have my name in it.

Considering I don't use the downloads, not I. It's totally reasonable. We can't have a storm of people coming on just for the downloads, now can we?

I can understand being mad about having to post 5 times, but at least it isnt a lot more. Also, this site is free...

(ironically this is my 5th post...)
