Well, it's working in that I can actually tell now where to stop reading. That's a good thing.

Aesthetically, I agree with respondents: the cyan color is close in luminosity to the white, and close in hue to the link color, making it visually ambiguous... I'd vote for a slightly darker text for older messages. Or, use background colors, like the lighter blue color that I see in these forums could be the newer messages, the regular blue for older ones...?

Anyway, don't see that as complaint. I can really enjoy the chat more now!

I followed two single rules:

1. Do not touch chat room background
2. Do not touch chat room messages color

I don't love blue. I don't love a specific color. I know that is impossible to please everybody.

To reach optimum results, the greater the contrast between "new" and "old" messages, the better. Also, I think that as long as "old" messages tend to be more often than "new" ones, the best color should be of them (in this case the bright white - #FFFFFF - as is nowadays).

I would not like to see a good concept to die because of a color discussion. Smile

( sorry, i'm writting this after a tiring workday and i might be being too serious - consider the content, not the shape of the message Razz )

Doesn't work very well for me... not because of the colors... which.... meh... we'll see.... but because I sit behind a firewall that caches everything .... so the usefulness is lost on me...

I had had this problem at work, AK. In my case the firewall is the ISA Server and I know its administrator like he was me Wink Result: No cache for 24seven sites.

It would be possible to do this in your case?

At the risk of feature-creep...

Could be an optional setting? On by default? Configure it in your profile...?

I have been enjoying the color change. It has even really helped when I am reading and it refreshes while I read, too.

The blue color of the chat has disappeared for some months now, and I thought this was because this option was abandonned.

But yesterday, I waited too long before logging and I saw that the colors were back.
Il seems that I can see the new posts in colors only when I'm not logged.

Am I the only one to have this problem?

All I can say is that I never had the problem you are talking about, masked_platypus and blue color for new posts is here all the time since it has been implemented.
So it looks like you have some problem, indeed.

BTW: Have you been trying any other internet browser to find out if the problem occurs only for one browser?

Are you running Greasemonkey or something that may interfere with the color coding, masked?

I don't even know what Greasemonkey is Laughing
What I don't understand is that everything turns back to normal when I'm not logged. That means the problem comes not from the computer, doesn't it?

OK. Don't worry about it. I didn't see there was an option to click on in "My Info". Rolling Eyes
No, everything works fine.

Sorry Embarassed and thanks everyone for helping me.
