Different name color on birthday
Though vB3's days are numbered, but I'll throw this out there anyway.

There was a discussion thread in SWK's Ahto forum about the best way to go about birthday recognition between members. It occurred to me that if the name of the forum user was changed to a different color, say cyan or orange, on their birthday, it would be a simple thing to recognize.

Even if this color change only affected the name list on the main LFN page (i.e. page), it would be an effective reminder. :)

Birthdays are overrated and in there birthday threads just contain the all known blahblahblah and someone is always late. But regardless of what I just said, I'd also say in general that we don't need something like this.

Someone forget your birthday Ray? :D

Naw. It's just that I classify them as unnecessary because I am not err overrating my age. :D

Eh, don't know if it works, but we can try it out--it's always not a bad idea to try out new ideas.

Vertical orange comic sans ms. It will draw your attention right to the username. Especially if it's a long username.

Like mine, jmac? :p

Well, people will certainly notice it.

Kinda hard to miss



in the "Users online" section.

I suppose only on the main LF page it would be nice. If we tried it for everywhere, we'd get problems with different forum themes contrasting with the names making them hard to read if they were a similar colour to the background. If it was possible to either a) have a birthday colour that didn't conflict with any of the forums or b) had individual birthday colours for each forum then it would work.

Palette rotating should fix that.

Joshi 03-27-2007 05:41 AM

I figured it'd be something like that. Now all we need is a willing admin...

Ray Jones 03-27-2007 09:07 AM

Ain't it like we have plenty of 'em hangin' 'round, and you just need to reach out and grab one? And while he's at it, he could .. massage your back a bit? Man, I want to be admin, so I could do that for you.

Joshi 03-28-2007 03:50 AM

And here we have another reason no one's made you an admin (that and your uncanny ability to move a thread off topic in a single post).

Would any admin be willing (to do the colour thing)?
