    I know on the Discord people's names are colored in accordance to their role (i.e. Ajah/Company/Aspirant/Citizen and so on). Would it be possible to do the same here? Personally, it would be nice to see a bit more color on the forum.

    There is a colored banner and rank title under everyone’s name. It’s not viewable on phones unless you’re in portrait mode.

    I do see the colored banner, Adina Sedai. However, on boards, in new posts, and profile posts we don't see that spark of color, just grays and whites.

    Usernames are one CSS field by default in xenforo.

    Its color is not tired to a user defined field or role in the forum software that I am aware of so we would have to make code changes or find a mod that is compatible and then make sure all the changes/mods stay up to date with any future upgrades to xenforo versions.

    We can keep an eye out for it as we work on other changes but its not likely any time soon. :(

    Just want to clarify here that I'm 100% on-board with my name looking like meme text, if that's what it comes down to. :lol
