I've seen this feature on other forums. Users can set a default style for their posts--like font color, font face, font size, bold, italic, text alignment etc. etc.--akin to how most email services or software allow you to set default text-styling for your outgoing emails.


Discuss.

Personally I love the customization and colors and fonts and what not. But seeing as I'm too lazy ..Well.

I believe this can be done pretty easy. The problem is that users are split over two different skins, one with a very light background and one with a very dark one. As it is, the text shows up dark on the light background and light on the dark one automatically, if you set a standard color that can't happen.

I agree with Spleen. I'd rather read easily the things you beautiful people are saying, rather than squint and fiddle with settings. Who said this was a democracy?

That's what highlighting is for! :P Or would there be a way for users to turn off seeing custom text colors if they want/need? Like how we can choose to not see signatures? Or you could make it so there is only one skin...or multiple skins but they would all be light or or all be dark.

These wouldn't be a real fixes, but I dunno...With as many colors as we can choose from with our posts...There would always be at least one person who would write in a color that would be hard to read. Even if you made it so only one skin/skin type were available.

Is it that big of a deal? We can already format them however we want and could possibly chose a color that is difficult to read on a skin different than the one we use...It's just more of a hassle. Highlighting text with a mouse isn't as much of a hassle, I think.
