And I had to highlight the Papayawhip just so I can read it. >.>

Yeah, but think about all the poor abused papayas:  whipped, pale, and hiding out on the internet  >:)

I vote for an option that automatically deletes a color choice everytime anyone has to highlight it to read the words. >:)

Awww, that would be no fun, why it would almost be like removing [you]   :o  ;)

+1

Or just remove non compatible colors from the drop down menu altogether.

That would make sense, but not be as much fun as replacing them with colors like atomic tangerine, denim, lust, or asparagus  (unfortunately all hex code colors)

There is a formatting tag, made by enclosing the word 'you' in square brackets, that inserts the username of whoever happens to be reading it at the time.  When I read Geraint's post it has 'Oniya' where you see 'loislanekent'.

(EDIT:  And this is why some people are in favor of removing the [ you ] tag.  >:( )

It was mentioned earlier of the possibility of automatically deleting colors from the list if the user had to highlight them. This would cause in me a considerable amount of anger. I would personally like to have the option to do what sjgames calls "fnording" text. Others might call it "making text invisible". I would put that function to great use.

Spoilers are good for that.   ;D

Although I think it would be technically complicated to perform a deletion from a menu based on highlights.  For one thing, it would be impossible to tell if the user was highlighting for visibility or in preparation to copy/paste.  All it would take would be a few applicants copying the questionnaire to render the whole site invisible.

Where can I find a list of the fonts useable?  I could go into my Word and find it, but I'm looking for a nice scripty one that people might actually be able to read.  I'm a dafontaholic. >.>

The drop down box contains the only fonts that will definitely stay the same for everyone using them. : (

Some that I like are Bickham, Brush, and Segoe.

I've been having issues changing any part of my signature to any color (let alone the cooler ones). I can do it in any of my posts, but it just won't change in my siggie. Am I doing something wrong?

It can be done for me. I think you need to highlight the whole link+text to change the color , and not just the text. ( If that makes sense. )
