Default Gmods being blue

I can't read gmods usernames when they're blue...

It blends in with the default theme too much.

Change them to another colour?

Wouldn't know up on lighter themes.

Perhaps a purple?

What about a pink since they are close to admins any way.

I can read them pretty good on the default board because they are a bit darker, and I actually like the way it is when the post around the forums it just fits in.

*didn't understand half that post*

But I, and several others, find them difficult to read.

Alright I'll just say it like this, I really don't see a need in changing it, it's been blue for years and no one else has complained about it and I think it's fine the way it is. You could always change the theme to another one if you find it that hard to read.

I'm really not sure what you're talking about. I just switched to forever blue (default) and reading the gmods names is pretty easy

Why should I have to? I should be able to read the names in all different themes.

I'm just saying that if it's that big of a problem changing themes would be your best bet. Personally I've never had a problem reading it and I like it blue.

Jon, most people don't have a problem with reading it on the site. As Thomas said, you could just change your theme to say, Black and Gold. When I used forever blue, there wasn't an issue so it might be caused by a low contrast ratio on your computer monitor causing a very close resemblance between the two colours.

YOURE NOT BRITISH! Stop doing that!

Also Jon, you can highlight the name so you can see it. That takes all of 2 seconds.

I'm really cool with it. Besides, anything else would seem a little weird. Its appropriate and matches their face.

Woa. Fucking mental over colours.

Clearly everyone now hates Jon for stating his opinion. Blue just contrasts a bit..that's all. No biggie. It was only a suggestion remember.
Peace and love....
