I quite like the idea of us having the option to change font colours for text in certain areas of hubs. Right now 'bolding' the text or changing the heading font style seems to be the only choice, but on occasion it would make highlighted areas clearer if we also had the option to change the font colour as well.
It could be useful for certain types of articles, but there will always be people who would abuse it and write technicolor articles that make the site look trashy. There are already some authors who write entire articles in bold. Uggggh. Maybe it should be a reward for attaining some milestone or achievement.
On other websites where I write and it's possible to change colors and fonts, the features are horribly abused, resulting in overly-colored pages, garish color clashes and a very unprofessional appearance.
I totally agree Cardisa, which is why to avoid this the idea was it would only be an option for either subheadings, or a certain percentage of text within a hub. A whole hub in technicolour would be gross!
Well We could have the the subheadings (in the capsule subtitle section only) with the option of two or three colours; black, red and maybe blue. That way there is no option for text change and subheadings that are made within the body of the text will have to remain black.
Even one other colour choice would be nice, say red, or green for example (blue no good as it would be confused with being a link). It would just make it easier for people to see sub-headings with little effort and would still look good. It would also help break up the text for the eyes, in much the same way putting pictures does, only with less effort.
LOL, good point, perhaps they could set a limit on the percentage of the hub the different colour could be used on, in much the same way as we have to have so many words of text per Amazon or Ebay Advert. That way people could only realistically use it for headings, or short paragraphs of text.
Edit: I do like the idea of limiting the use to Hubbers of a certain level, e.g. over an 80 Hubscore for example, although of course this would cause a problem if their score dropped below 80 for any reason, (might be a good incentive to keep it above 80 though).
Colour is fascinating, and i think we take it for granted. The natural colours that form in oceans, when the sun is setting or rising is amazing to look at.My all time favourite colour is orange, and tastes change, so...
I know the average person probably doesn't use Heading 4 much, but I just had occasion to use it, and I notice that it looks more prominent than Heading 3 - which makes it look pretty peculiar in a hierarchy. Any...
Oh, that perfect green so hard to mix! I have always an hard time getting the right green, sometimes it looks great on the palette, and when the brush strokes the canvas I flinch.What is your favorite green tube of...
