A deeper red for mentors?
« on: November 06, 2018, 05:16:54 PM »
Hi!

I've been fortunate enough to make friends with a few different mentors. Thus they're on my buddy-list.

Problem is, when I scroll down to the bottom of the page to see which of my friends are online, it's actually extremely difficult to tell which of my mentor buddies are there! Even when bold, the color just doesn't really come through.

My suggestion is basically to give mentors a color that stands out a bit more. :)

You can just go to Profile -> Buddies/Ignore List and see who's online based on whether or not a big square is white or green.

That is absolutely a fair point, I just don't do that. x)

No particular reason. I'm just used to knowing immediately when I scroll down. :P

Not that this is really a big problem, it was more meant as a throwaway suggestion.

Just a bit curious, what shade/tint do you think would be most visible and easy on the eyes for this sort of thing? On dark site themes, the Mentor names show up very clearly in the Who's Online area, though it does occur to me if you are using one of the lighter themes, they might not very well, since pink is one of those tricky shades on the lighter forum themes.

We are trying to lean a bit away from an outright bright red, as red names were used in the past for admins, and red read as 'intimidating' to quite a few people.

I have 20/10 reading vision (or better) so I am not a good judge of what to pick <_<

making almost any color more of an earth tone and a bit darker usually works for readability. If we know the hex code for the current color, I can offer up a few alternatives so we can see what color would work for the most number of people.
