As long as the change is a local change, that wouldn't mess with anyone else. I think in theory though, it would actually cause the same confusion as was expressed by the OP, especially if other users happened to come into the room and IMVU selected the same color for them as was chosen by the user. Which could be easily fixed by the user just picking a new color for themselves. Which could work out, but if another user comes in, they are now the same color as the other person, they are left with having to pick yet another new color.

On the other hand, with the way the current system is set up. It doesn't seem like it's a common thing when there are not many users in the room where IMVU and their current color selection has more than one person showing up as the same color. From my personal experience of course.

Is there a way where IMVU can create something that allows for less hassle on the user's end, and requiring the least amount of work? Yes there is in all honesty. It can all be fixed with reworking how the text get's displayed. Names stay in their own little space and text get's put in its own little space.

Something like this:

I like that text adjusting except for the empty lines. In the space allotted, with 3-4 people yakking, convo would move out of view before you had a chance to read it.

What would be nice is to have an adjustable text space - one you could drag larger when a lot of convo is going on, and smaller when it's not needed. One doesn't need a big graphic when the convo is interesting and heavy.

I agree that the text spacing in my example would work a lot better if it stayed in its current format of being closer. I haven't played around enough with Open Office to see if what I was trying to explain would have allowed for me to adjust name spacing and line spacing. I suppose I could have done that in Gimp.

If there is a way to do this where only the person changing colors can see it and not others or an opt-out to this then I say yes. Otherwise, I vote no. It's bad enough in the forums to see colors and tiny font that I have to blow up 5x to read it I don't want to deal with this in the client chat log too Laughing
