More user color customization
I had an idea for customization in regards to users being able to choose custom colors for their name. This would be a global change, not only visible on your end. People complain that chat badges would be too cluttered, so here's my idea.
Put a border color around the user's profile picture that indicates whether they're pro, normal, moderator, etc. This will allow all users to change their name color to be different in chat. The same colors tend to blend together in chat, making it hard to keep up with chat, etc.
So here's my simple solution.. this causes no clutter and users have more options to be different. I have uploaded examples I made in photoshop.
This pro user, the7egend for example, wants to have their name set to red. You can easily distinguish that they're a pro user due to the avatar border color.
This is something needed going into the future, as more people from Twitch come to the platform. Twitch already has this functionality. It's defnitely something people will want in the future.
Just a reminder.. at the top it does say "Help us make Mixer better for everyone." ... that's why I'm suggesting this because there are people that want different options. If you wanna set the chat up so it's normal for YOU, by ALL MEANS do so. BUT there are people that want more than the standard colors blending together. That's the point I'm making.
It's all about inviduality, customization, and making people feel welcome.
It's literally color changes for usernames. We're not talking about adding toxicity. Cmon people lol. The only reason I mentioned Twitch is the familiarity of options.
I dont miss anything in chat. Maybe it's just something you get used to. We dont need mixer becoming like twitch. If I wanted to stream on twitch, I would have. Mixer is amazing as is. As a streamer you have the ability to change the colors of your chat. Not saying there arent things that can be improved, but chat colors isnt one of them in my opinion.
Also for those that don't want it, there could be an option for your own personal chat settings to default it to the original colors on your end.
The role color is still there. It's a colored ring around the profile icon. It keeps that functionality while expanding on the other. Helping differentiate users in the chat with different colors makes seeing posts easier. If everyone has the same color, they all blend in and I miss comments, etc. It's a quality of life change that just needs to happen.
I don’t like this idea. Mixer name colors have always been a sign of role and I think it’s part of our culture now.
