font color permissions.

Post by Lydia on October 6th 2008, 12:06 am

In my idea you could make it so regular members couldn't use the colors "red" and "blue" (these being admin and mod colors). Also, you could add colors and name them anything you like. So I could enter a hex code and name it "pink" and from that drop-down list members could click "pink" and get the color I entered.

I've thought about suggesting this in the past, on account of some boards here forbidding regular members' use of bold or colored font. If you go to make a post, naturally one would expect that they can use whatever they have buttons for, including bold, italics, underline, and font colors. I think that if a board wants users to refrain from using them, those boards should be able to disable those things so that only members with special permissions can use them (mods and admins).

That sounds kind of hard to accomplish.
not only can people color their fonts with names, but they can use hex codes too.
so if you ban "red" from people, they can still use FF0C00, which is red. or they could use C90C00 which is also red.
theres no easy way, unless you have a program to know what color a hex code will give you. so its not that easy to ban certain colors.
unless of course you ban all the colors, and only make a couple colors available. I guess that would be the easy route.
it still seems like a waste of time to me.
are we communists now? we dont let people express their personalities?
and thats why im voting no.
