Who is online.

I am not sure if this has been suggested yet or not but the colors that

show if a user is online or offline are too close together. It is difficult to

distinguish the difference, at least on my monitor here at work. Maybe

the offline square should just go black.

 

Just a thought.

Gads that's an ugly likeness of me. Where did you get that? I'm much shinier in person. Where's makeup when you need them? Makeup!

might I suggest you adjust your monitor then?

 

the colours on mine show very clearly differently

 

if you really need to know who's online, check the list on the forum homepage :thumbsup:

For point of reference my colors are remarkably similar to your's boofredlay. Notice how I slip my name in there? I'm such a sly dog.

ReMark - whatever he posts is going to look exactly like it does already surely :?

 

maybe you guys have a touch of colour blindness - green and blue being a major issue with that affliction

I think its a good suggestion, but not a necessary one.

 

Obviously the two symbols are different shades of the same colour, which may be harder to distinguish upon first glance, but it is distinguishable all the same.

Seeing as how that may be a problem, perhaps it would be advantageous to have the color change be significant enough that instead of going from a darker shade of the same color it should change to a completely different color when indicating?

 

Color blindness is more common than most people realize. My boss, one of my closest friends, two of my uncles, and several co-workers over the years have all been color blind.

 

Just thinking aloud here.

Bright fuscia pink for the girls onlune/Royal blue for the lads - White offline?

 

How about instead of colors we go with the whole, checkmark for online, none for offline, and a big "x" for the report a post button?

Well I am not color blind and I can see the difference but like Lee Mac said,

they are different shades of the same color and some monitors might show

them closer together. I can see it more clearly on my machine at home for

example. Do I think it is necessary? No, It was just a suggestion.

I love it. Would that mean the Terminator is after us!smiley-omg.png

 

Speaking of color blindness, I have to give our Landscape Architect a "lesson"

on rendering his landscape plans in Photoshop next week. He is color blind so

I have to set up a color palette with names next to the colors to match the

markers he used to use.

Over at the SketchUp forums we have this to show who is online.

Not that I think it should be that way here, just an example.

I think black for offline and green for online would be fine.
