because I guess, for replying to posts, many members just use the quick reply box which only features bold, italics and underlined character. Using color would take too much time, and some are just too lazy

Also I think with some colors you could expect some problems with skins that have the same or an almost equal background color.

test

I just checked with a few skins and your post came out well with every skin. While the standard color (selecting no color, just [color] ) changes for each skin to fit to its background in order to make it readable, the rest of the colors don't. For example my skin is a black background and white text, so I won't be able to read the black text from above behind my black background.

I use Premium Bright and Blue, and honestly Larah, I can't read half of what you type without highlighting it

Re: Who do I talk to about getting more colors for text?

Wait a minute, you use red clay? Don't you find that orange text a BITCH to read on Red Clay? I know I do and I use the same background. It's almost like having orange balls at Roland Garros. Ugh.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

I apologise.
For all those blank looking posts -I can't help it.

and Jenny i don't use red clay anymore...and sadly i'm not premium:although i might be persuaded if then there would be more text colors available for me to confuse people with.

I think Partygirl is a synesthete and so there will never be enough colors in the universe to properly express herself.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
