Seems fine, except that lightgray doesn't really look any different from the regulat color on the forum (at least to my eyes on my monitor)

There aren't that many languages in all of Aryth, are there?

Unless you include generic monster languages such as goblin, giant and draconic...

We do have 13 languages already, not counting things that may happen to show on a game now and then like sylvan, infernal and the like. And IWe do have 13 languages already, not counting things that may happen to show on a game now and then like sylvan, infernal and the like. And I have suggested 23 available, those would show on the drop down menu of the full reply, you can choose to use any named color in your posts if you type the name manually, that site I linked has a damn lot more than i suggested.

My last thoughts:

black <-- black (often used as simple spoiler hiding)
white
darkkhaki

Out of Character: gray

Orcish: red
Black Tongue: brown

Norther: olive
Erenlander: orange
Courtier: orchid
Colonial: hotpink

Trader's Tongue: yellow

Halfling: lightgreen
High Elven: lime
Jungle Mouth: green
Patrol Sign: rosybrown

Old Dwarven: steelblue
Clan Dialect: skyblue

I don't thnk we will be needing any other color at all. Wink

I like the color choices presented here, though I might be inclined to change orchid to purple just to make it easier to differentiate between that and hotpink.

This has eldued me before, sorry guys. Pheros, pruple looks hard to read in  your post, so that is why I avoided it, we can use fuchsia and hotpink instead, to the same effect. I will be changing this myself, hard coding it to the forum fies, but right now I am waiting for Todd, there si a new version of SMF and TinyPortal that we have to install in the site, meaning my work can go to waste if i do it now.

He is a little more than busy though, so it may take sometime. Just so you know with the later version of TP we actually get new uses out of the thing, with sorting of articles and the like presenting new ways of looking at things in the site features. And I still have to save the code change I used to make signs be posted only once per page too. Wink

Well, i changed the sign thing beccause Mask amdee himself a sign with an image, being the very first to do so, and applying the character limit, mind you. So to avoid overloading our bandwiths with the same thing time and again, i put the limit, which is very very reasonable. Wink

Well then, I will be certain to check this once the updates are done, maybe I can even do the update, but then I would start being afraid of what could happen, if i were you, that is. twisted

And because I can, the menus are done as well, I am looking into making the backgroudn color of the drop down menu black instead of white, maybe some other color, one that allows one to read all the names there, not certain yet.

Enjoy it!

I ended up forgetting to add Patrol Sign to the list, is that an issue? I can easily add it to the list if you guys want it there. Grin
