New Group Colours

Recommended Posts

To save any confusion of user group colours, we are slightly changing the group colours. The staff colours are still the same - Administrators are red, global moderators are dark blue, moderators are green with supporters as pink and former staff as cyan.

 

The same goes for new members, they will remain dark green when registering. But for users who are above the rank of a Peasant (new member) they will remain a standard colour which will stop any confusion. To this rule, there are two exceptions: The "Dukes" user group will remain gold, and the "Royal Guard" (contributors) will remain purple.

I like the idea of having less colors. :) I have only one suggestion though... I believe it would sound better if "peasants" would be renamed to "free men"? This way we would have all the same, or almost the same, as in Stronghold 2, which would be nice, but it would also fit its need better - peasant and free man were not the same in middle ages, as far as I know, and free man was the one who could be promoted. Hehe, or maybe I'm missing the idea - maybe the point is to motivate someone to become something else other than peasant. :D

 

As about the colors themselves - I like the choices of colors for each rank, it's just fitting right. :)

That is one thing I debated about, and many of the ranks are taken from Stronghold 2. Some others were also taken from these pages (initially where the peasant came from) :

      Just a quick suggestion. Changing some colours. For example Lord Vetka's username is a dark blue. The colour itself is difficult to see with the colour theme of the website, maybe do some colour testing to find suitable and easy to see colours.   Thank you :)

    • Help choose new user group ranks!

      We are considering changing the user titles on the site, and you have a chance to help! All you need to do is post below with the title you think a user group should get (or the amount of posts that a user should post to get that title) and you could have some ranks named as yours!   Example:   Knight Bachelor [currently knight]   Knight Errant [64 posts]   Good luck! The contest will take place until the 20th July, after which the management team will deliberate upon the entries and the new ran
