Give Buddies a color?
« on: March 31, 2016, 12:52:04 PM »
The Users Online area at the bottom of the main page uses different colors to show Lords/Ladies/Staff, and bolds Buddies.  Would it be possible to make Buddies a different color?  Would anyone else like that?  Is there an option to do this already?

Oh, I'd love it! The bolding is nice but far too subtle.

I'd like to see this change too.

Having them in bold lettering always worked for me but I suppose making them black as well would let them stand out even more.

Well, black is typically used for people with some kind of account issue (anything from a dead email or Hiatus to actual disciplinary issues).  However, since red is no longer used for G-levels, that one is open (and very visible.)

Unless you have the dark skin then they disappear. >.< What I would really like is an option where it says users online, to also have different selections, like Buddies, that eliminates any names not on your buddy list. Or other special things like Wikimin, Staff, Mentors, GMs. A quick way to find specific groups of people.

I agree with BeMi.  Bold has worked with me.  I'm not sure about the red though....

What about orange? Some people who aren't around that often might still associate red with staff.

I like this idea. Having a Buddies-only "Who's Online" list would be a treasure. Or maybe "Buddies + Staff".

Orange would show up on a light or dark skin. 

I accustomed to the bold, though.

Why not Bold Orange then?  It works for those who want the 'who's online' to have everyone listed AND/OR those who just want a 'buddies only' who's online.

Orange and bold sounds like a great idea. You can click on tag/group types at the bottom but it doesn't have details like wiki admins.

*nods*  I use the Blue Black theme so that would make all my Buddies cloaked out...  XD

Having a list sort function or making them big oranges would be greatl.

My thought is there are other people that are not staff that you might need for help like IRC operators, or Mumble Mods. Way too many out there to have colors for everyone. If the lists could be controlled by clicking IRC mod when you need help, you would know who is online at that time to help you. Same if you want all your buddies, or a mentor.

Something like this where you click the title and the list shows only those in that category:

I was actually going to give buddies an icon instead once we move to Elkarte.
