Are you folk still interested in a competition to improve this further?
I’ve realised that we already have a test-bed for playing with colours: it’s the browser itself.
It’s actually easy to click on an element and tell the browser to change the colour of it - no coding or even HTML needed.
I’d be happy to post a quick video showing how to do that.
I’m asking partly because I’m still not entirely happy with what we have.
The reason I’m not happy is that the player name colour scheme we put there is not “consistent”.
What I mean is that “light blue” is supposed to mean “ordinary member of OGS”, but now suddenly we have “dark blue” meaning that as well.
Anoek has kindly put up an alternative at the beta server.
I like this better, because the blues on both players are as similar as they can be while remaining readable.
Except that there’s a concern that this is less readable
So it’s “color consistency vs readable”.
Bhydden has a point that this is hardly the most important thing we can focus on, but on the other hand it’s easy and accessible … and it still irritates me
