Well, colors can get confusing sometimes. Who has chosen what for whom and when and where why? So I figured I'd plop this down as a quick reference. Name -> color they use in my posts, at least. All are generally following the "bold is speaking, unbold/italics is thinking" motto.

Nighthand -> bold/black
Silverblade -> silver (literally color=silver)

Royce -> white
Garaa -> purple
Rugu -> yellow/gold (either works, they look quite similar)
Melzas -> darkblue
Kuja -> blue
Klive -> red
Xenobia -> olive
Jett -> brown

Balmung -> bold/black (he doesn't get used much. most minor characters will have an elemental color association similar to the elites, or will be simply bold or unformatted)
Kamui -> #DB2645
Tritoch -> #A68064
Kelvin -> teal

Nall -> green
Nayru -> darkred
Raine -> blue
Sheena -> orange

Reinier -> #AA5303
Dien -> #888888


Anyone who wants to post their own color for me to use, or wants to know a color I use for someone not mentioned above, post here. *will edit post to include them all for a quick reference*

This isn't to say you all have to use colors. I like to because it's more easily discernable to me, when i read. it's also a lot more work in tagging, too, and sometimes hard to be consistant. if you DO use colors, i'd ask that you stick to one (or, as in a case like mine, one for each primary aspect). that way i won't see green for nall in my posts but suddenly for someone else in others. any other formatting as well; my standard is simple bold color, but if you prefer italic non-bold, or whatever, i can do that too.

or this could all be a bad idea and you can not tell me anything and life can go on as it has. whatever works.

Works for me... I normally use #AA5303 for my dialogue/thoughts/what have you. Good color...

(Pretty much just posted here so I always have a referance to what color I use)

I use median gray:

Like this: [color=#888888]

Oh, and as far as NPCs are concerned:

Danielle (hacker-spawned AI from Futune) - Blue
Demon Guy - Dark Red
Anti-Demon Guy - Periwinkle (8888CC)

Then again, you guys probably won't encounter these guys at all, so why worry about a thing like that?

Anyone know the correct tags for the tahoma font and the center alignment function?

The HTML center tag is in effect for this board, but so far I can't find the font-changing one.

Code:
<center>Text to be Centered</center>

<center>Text to be Centered</center>

Let's see now...

Code:
<font face="Tahoma">Tahoma</font>


<font face="Tahoma">Tahoma</font>

Nighthand, would you be so kind as to enable the <font> html tag for Cypher?

That code is incorrect, Dien.

Code:
<font face="tahoma"> Tahoma </font>


That's the correct code. I edited your preview in the previous post to show it, and I enabled the font tag.

Note on fonts: Just because you can see it, doesn't mean everyone can. If they don't have the font on their computer, they will just see it as a standard times new roman or arial font. Since the board's default appears to be times, that's what I'd guess.

It would also appear to me that it might not be working. I'm not entirely sure.

I add a caution; I'll disable the font tag if it's used excessively enough to cause a disruption. Signatures? fine. Profile? Fine. every last one of your posts and all your conversation in other people's posts? that's a bit much.

Try to keep it reasonably used.

Alright, if this turns out different enough from the rest, then that's what I can be represented as. This is crimson with bold in it, which is not normally used in message boards, but can be done...so far as I can tell.

For comparison's sake...

Red

Dark Red

It's between these two, looking closest to red, but nobody uses red, so there we have it.

Hey look! A profile! It's got items and stats and things! Cool! If it isn't fully up to date, it will be, so don't worry 'bout it.

The gripe i have with the crimson is it's fairly similar to The hex value I use for Kamui. I think, anyways. *posting this to compare*

edit: yeah, they look pretty similar. Though, once this quest is over, Kamui shouldn't be in the plotline as much, so crimson can work for you then.

I used Darkred for Hidama. >.> And just normal font for me, though I should probably pick up a color despite the fact that I don't talk very much. >.>
