So, so far, we have the following colours..
Plain white for yourself.
Blue for private messages
Beige for regular players
Gold for supporters
Red-orange for BATs MATs or anything else important staff to osu! etc etc
Cyan for peppy (DUH.) :)
Pink for BanchoBot
Green for highlight
But, with how much other special roles..?
Like Multiplayer room host, or someone on your friend list, or the player that's playing in a spectator room?
I honestly think they deserve their own colours too...
Perhaps we can have..
Navy blue for spectator room host
Purple for friends
Magenta for multiplayer host

I thought this wouldn't be too hard to implement, so.. why not?
This way, when there is a lot of spectators for a player, we can see at a glance what the host is talking about.
And also, if you only want to talk to your friends (?) you can do that too, now, as they are organized with their own special colour for your pleasure.

In addition, I think it would be nice if the action command (/me) would also colour the name, as well. That would be neat if it got fixed. Then when the spectator /np's a map and we see that nave blue colour, we know to get that map right away because the host is probably going to play it. ;)

Sounds nice. Though, will it be implemented..? I wonder. :idea:

i agreed with this :3 if this were to happen :D we will got a full colorful osu that will look so good :3

Why not implementing the idea of tags for categorised users such as BAT, MAT, BOT (Banchobot), mods.

E.G [BAT]SapphireGhost, [MOD]Zallius, [BOSS]peppy, [BOT]Banchobot. The colour coding can also be implemented.

Well, we already have the colours. That would be a good idea if someone couldn't see colours/was colourblind. In that case, it will also have [FRIEND] or [HOST] or anything else really necessary. there should be an option to switch between colours or the tags.

I always wanted to see a difference between devs/admins and BATs.

theo and i just talked about that over steam and agreed no to this, but yes to a color for chat-ops
posted
^That's always bothered me. When I see an admin, I expect their in game color to be green, not red.
posted
i think they're red more so because of in-game chat moderation purposes, though i could very well be completely wrong about that
posted
From the OP's suggestion, multi room host and spectator room host can be condensed into one color as the two will never appear onscreen at the same time. A single "room host" color would be a good idea for the reasons you stated.


Friend color seems a little silly... and it doesn't sound very useful. you can tell whether someone is your friend already by reading their name.

The purpose of my feature request was to give other roles some colours too, so we would know just by glancing at the colour. But having colour codes for BATs/MATs/Chat Ops/Devs sounds nice too. There's not many colours so we might have to reuse some. Or maybe use grey or black for some titles. :D

Depends. But I'm supportive of all these suggestions so far, as well as the tags for those who want a lack of colour in their lives.

All in all, I'm sure we agree that the colour names need quite a bit of reform. ;)

These are all suggestions to peppy or someone else who's going to give it a thought and maybe implement this. Why not accept our suggestions in the OP? Like how I t/117468 and deadbeat t/107625/ did

Doesn't say we can't have colours for the other roles of Multi Host, Spectator Room Host, and Friends. There's absolutely nothing wrong with them. Friends moreso.

i just don't see a need for a chat color for all those things. if you can provide a good reason, i might change my mind. but for now, i'm only agreeing to a chat color for chat ops

Please no. I don't want a different color name only because I'm a chan's op. If I need to show it I always can use !faq ircop.

Сoncerning the first message, I support the request.
