It seems that when stories are posted, other people often wish to comment OOC, and well....

(( seing a lot of posts

(( with lines like this

(( bothers me a bit. I guess it takes away from the feel of reading a story.

So my question is, do you folks think coloring the OOC text would work well? Some suggestions:

green ) Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Vivamus lacinia, libero ut porttitor fermentum, metus ipsum mollis orci, rutrum porttitor felis leo id ligula. Morbi dignissim porttitor libero. Aliquam a nisl. Pellentesque turpis justo, feugiat in, egestas in, cursus in, eros. Phasellus dolor. In ligula velit, malesuada sit amet, semper et, volutpat ut, est. Sed at mauris. Quisque massa felis, porta ut, pharetra quis, facilisis non, nibh. Pellentesque adipiscing neque et arcu. Integer nulla arcu, vestibulum eu, iaculis sed, consequat non, odio. Vivamus sapien velit, aliquam cursus, vehicula sit amet, tincidunt aliquam, ante. Curabitur scelerisque mollis dui. Pellentesque non lectus. Vivamus eget velit. Integer sit amet lacus. Aliquam dui urna, ullamcorper in, egestas nec, sagittis a, nisi.

brown ) Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Suspendisse vestibulum pellentesque risus. Vivamus accumsan eros a purus. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Phasellus malesuada auctor sapien. Nulla nec arcu. Maecenas pellentesque ligula a turpis. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae; Aliquam convallis dui sed velit. Maecenas sit amet urna. In pretium volutpat leo. Proin fermentum libero non sapien. Proin placerat egestas sem. Maecenas eget pede.

olive ) Vivamus pulvinar pretium risus. Etiam iaculis ipsum suscipit elit. Proin vel orci. Cras ullamcorper nisl in lorem. Nunc mi. Mauris feugiat nisl. Nullam enim leo, volutpat in, nonummy vitae, vestibulum quis, nisl. Nulla imperdiet lobortis purus. Donec eget nunc eu diam tempus sagittis. Nam diam. Morbi fermentum laoreet mi. Vestibulum aliquam, lorem sit amet molestie blandit, pede odio porttitor erat, ut sollicitudin sapien magna nec magna. Integer eget risus in arcu luctus fermentum. Phasellus eget tellus. Mauris auctor elit non sem. Nulla nisi nulla, cursus sed, ullamcorper eget, bibendum ut, ligula.

darkred ) In sit amet leo. Suspendisse elementum. Curabitur varius velit eget dui. Mauris porta. Nunc pharetra imperdiet nisi. Aenean auctor magna sit amet dolor. Cras est pede, porttitor nec, fringilla vel, rutrum ut, felis. Vivamus feugiat turpis non ligula. Proin eros lacus, pellentesque vel, posuere ut, pellentesque a, lectus. Integer leo. Suspendisse malesuada dictum nunc. Sed facilisis lectus id est. Donec molestie sapien a massa. Aliquam erat volutpat. Fusce massa. Nulla facilisi. In sit amet leo. Suspendisse elementum. Curabitur varius velit eget dui. Mauris porta. Nunc pharetra imperdiet nisi. Aenean auctor magna sit amet dolor. Cras est pede, porttitor nec, fringilla vel, rutrum ut, felis. Vivamus feugiat turpis non ligula. Proin eros lacus, pellentesque vel, posuere ut, pellentesque a, lectus. Integer leo. Suspendisse malesuada dictum nunc. Sed facilisis lectus id est. Donec molestie sapien a massa. Aliquam erat volutpat. Fusce massa. Nulla facilisi.

I do not mind the color but...

olive ) Vivamus pulvinar pretium risus.

... sounds kinda sexual! Razz

Dark red is a good color. If dark red is used then the light red and the brown colors are quite close and not so easily distinguishable.

Dark blue is actually good despite the lighter blue-gray forum background.

The green seems fine.

White and Yellow are a big NO since they can not be seen or hardly seen. Cyan and Violet should be used sparingly for similar reasons.

The human eye does not prefer to read too much text that is not black. Dark blue may be the exception. This would have to be checked to see how friendly it is on the eyes. This is not a personal preference.

White text on a darker background can be attractive but I also do not see this as so friendly to the eyes. Options for colored text becomes much more limited; i.e. dark red on dark blue background.

Using green text to denote OOC statements on In Character posts seems to look fine, helping to denote between IC and OOC statements in the same thread.
