A while back I had been looking into a way to change the default colors in the forum dropdown to more pleasing tones...so rather than the pure red we could have something more pleasing, like this shade. Sadly, I found that these were hard-coded into the board and there was no way to change them = 'red' would equate to 'ff0000' for all eternity.

It was only just now that the (somewhat obvious) idea occurred to me that if I couldn't change the actual color values...I could still add word filters to get my way!!

Check it:

All the main colors you may wish to use now have a more pleasing variant. No need to memorize or constantly have to copy/paste specific color values to avoid those ugly blinding shades. You want something green? You can still just type 'green' as the value, it'll just filter to a much more easy on the eyes shade instead of this mess.

But I decided I could even take it a step further - into the username colors we have all come to know and love!!

Includes alternates for the commonly-used names as well as the member's actual username: ex. using 'lg' or 'littlegoten' will both produce his color.

On a final note, the colors corresponding to the elements are all there as well, exactly as you'd expect them:

fire=red
ice=cyan
metal=silver*
wind=green
earth=brown
lightning=indigo
water=blue
shadow=purple
light=yellow

*(gray/grey instead filter to this shade to match the color palette of the skin)

Also, if you want to invoke that particular shade of IGNO blue used as our skins' accent color, the value is 'teal'.

So yes...new colors all around!! Go forth and given new strength to the power of THE RAINBOW!!
