Tag Colors?

    Could y'all possibly make it so the tags in the "tag box" or whatever you call it (on the hubber's profile page, at the bottom) alternates colors?

    Everything being one color and overlapping makes it really difficult to have something 'catch your eye'. And honestly, it can be annoying when looking at a profile of someone who has more than 100 hubs.

    Like me! wink

    Honestly, I have trouble finding my own tags, sometimes..

    3 or 4 colors would be nice.. light colors - like pale pink, light green, baby blue, etc..

    Nice colors will make readers more inclined to keep looking, too - right now I get a headache when trying to read someones tags, and often I just backout of the profile instead.

    Are ya feelin' me, Mr. Deeds? smile wink

    James is going to take a look at it, but I can't promise you anything.  If anyone has an example of a tag cloud design that they really like, please post a link to it.

    Do you mean with colors or just style?

    I like the style well enough.. is it difficult to randomly assign colors to different tags??

    I know.. Im not technically inclined, sorry if that's a stupid question. smile

    No that wouldn't be too difficult, and we certainly don't want to give anyone headaches!

    But, if were going to change them at all, we'd like to figure out how to make them as useful as possible -- for instance by giving the colors a semantic meaning, or clumping related tags near each other, etc.

    We'll see what we can do, but we're knee deep in hubtivity right now.

    Well thats cool then.. I think the style you have is fine if the colors could vary. Some people put like 20 tags in their posts and it just is so hard to notice them in the profile when everything is tan.

    Thanks for putting it in the queue to investigate! smile smile
