Chat Contraster N
« on: July 02, 2010, 12:38:02 AM »
Has this ever happened to you?   :huhwhat: :sick:


Have you ever been the hapless victim of ne'er-do-wells who do this?  :yes: :shakehead:


Well, fear no more!  The days of hideous, blinding, awful, and horribly colored chat are gone forever!  ;-D   :flowerdance:

Introducing the all new state-of-the-art Chat Contraster 3.14159!!  With the Chat Contraster 2.71828, you can go from this:


to this:


with the click of a button!
:hrm:  Well, you have to put in a couple numbers too, but..



With the Chat Contraster 1.61803399, you may at any time use the /contrast command as follows:

  • /contrast ##, where ## is between 1 and 100, to set the contrast to your desired strength.
  • /contrast 0, to turn off contrast.  :stillnorecall:
  • /contrast, to display the current contrast status.

The Chat Contraster #9 also includes a free multi-function menu item for your convenience.



Contrast is remembered and restored next time you log in.  Be sure to refresh your browser and/or clear its cache to begin your new and exciting Chat Contraster 42 experience.

Remember him?


:mwahaha:  Not no more Johnny, we can see you loud and clear.  :goodjob:

---

Edit:  Note that there's a lot of variation on what a good setting is, depending on the theme.  Some need little or no additional contrast, and will quickly become almost black and white with a low setting (10 or so), while others like Cocoa or Red need very high settings for most colors.  But that's what makes it so much fun.  ;-D

Edit':  It only changes the messages.  The menus and stuff are part of the theme, and that's separate.  If those colors aren't good it's the theme's fault.

:yes: (see below)

Contrast is very useful. Like going from this



to this:

 :uhm: I hope mu and Aspir don't mind the quote...

I now have contrast 10 (which is lower than what you see here) which allows me to distinguish people without some unlucky colour combinations.

Thank you StarSeeker.  The Chat Contraster -4.3zq^# is indeed very useful.  I was using it all night while this strange person kept inexplicably popping in and out of chat.  :whatsthatyasaysonny:

:goodjob:  Yes, I prefer as little as necessary also, so as to preserve others' expressive wishes.  Even "unlucky" ne'er-do-wells.  :evilchuckle:

Wow, thanks so much! We don't know what MM would do without you.

You deserve many thanks for the quick response to my original request, I thought it'd be a tough cookie to handle! Hooray for mu!

Thanks Sean and Namaste!  :)  Anytime.
Chat's kind of fun to play with, so don't feel bad about asking for stuff.

Unless Johnny uses a /me command.  When that happens, all bets are off and his annoying color still shines through uncontrasted. :bored:

Sorry, I thought the issue was withdrawn, wolve, since this thread was in the Recycle Bin.

Should be fixed now.  Johnny will have to do better than that!  :approve:
