Yeah, I'm beginning to regret providing Omega with the Big MacIntosh Red color, that's a pretty eye-searing combination.

Of course. Any suggestions? We we're trying to keep with the pony colored theme for the various text tags, but I agree it doesn't look the best.

I can provide shades of pony if someone has a good general color to use.

There are way more than 50 shades of pony.

I suggest using the code be a player requirement for the upcoming game, no sense having it if only some use it and some don't. I also suggest a rule stating each player is allowed only one "vote block" per day (unless a special rule supercedes this), and retractions are now performed by simply removing the vote code from an earlier vote post. That would save the trouble of having to explain "retracted, was so-and-so" or even the need for strikeouts.

I have already changed the voting procedure in my upcoming game to require usage of the tags.

However, I think the second is problematic. We don't want to lose vote history so I think if you change your vote, you should still have to identify who you voted for (with a retraction) but with the elimination of the [vote] tag.

Yeah, I was thinking purple as well. Though it does blend a little bit with the background, but at least it's not eye searing. Or maybe yellow? Kind of using Rainbow Dash for the color picks for it. The blue from her body as the background and then the text as one of her hair colors.

Could also go with Rarity purple for the background and white for the text.

Also I feel so wrong about trying to figure out color schemes based on MLP.

Not contrasty enough. Maybe blue isn't the right background? Or is there a pony yellow?

Or worse, are we over thinking this?

Fluttershy is yellow, but would probably want to stay away from too bright of colors.

And yes, we are so overthinking this.

Should yellow be the background perhaps? With blue the text?

And if I didn't overthink this I would have to do work. Bleh.

Hopefully Dferr weighs in, and anyone else who might be colorblind.

Maybe just striking the vote block would be best retraction option?

How does the purple with white text look? Playing around in Word it seems to stand out pretty well and doesn't cause eye trauma.

Not sure about yellow since it can be such a strong bright color you'd need to go with a very dark color for the text to see anything.

The white's a little stark but otherwise works well. Maybe darken it just a touch towards grey?

Yeah. Wiki says Rarity is white bodied but does kind of look a little off-white in images.

Can you change the color of the strikeout?

It's a little eye burning against that background, but certainly more noticeable as being a struck out vote. Also might make it more noticeable normally as well in posts.

Looks fine to me and even against the purple actually doesn't look that bad with the grey text. Also think it makes normal use more visible as well.

Huh, it also changes the text color as well... that was not expected. Also does change the color of the

Probably need to remove the <h3> tag as well, if you're still using it. That feeds an automated break after it.

Also, those colors are horrendous, and the red-on-purple is even worse.

Both. The red-on-purple is a contrast issue, possibly exacerbated by my colorblindness. The purple and grey just looks hideous though!

Ran into a problem trying to send a mass-email just now:

There were one or more errors while sending the email. Please check the Error log for detailed error messages.

Error log page contains:

If you're on the email list and just received an email, let me know? I'm guessing this didn't go out at all.
