    Hello.

    I am here to suggest a couple of ideas for donators that does not involve in-game mechanisms - as forums currently doesn't have any noticeable donator perks.

    IDEA ONE: ABILITY TO CHANGE NAME COLOUR DEPENDING ON RANK
    This idea is for donators to change their name colour depending on their rank. Right now, everyone is a dark-ish grey. If you have iron in game, you will be able to access a white (with black outline) name, if you have obsidian, you can get a purple (with black outline) name, as well as any ranks prior. This will allow donators to stand out from non-donators.
    IDEA TWO (LEADING FROM IDEA ONE): PURCHASEABLE COLOURS
    Any colours that were not aforementioned (including staff ranks) can be purchased in the store, as well as gradient'ed colours (Example).
    IDEA THREE: CUSTOM TITLES
    This idea is simply a title to be added for donators (perhaps above a specific threshold? Say, gold+?), this is a feature within XenForo where instead of member, you will be able to change that to your donator rank that you currently have. So if you have emerald, you will have an emerald title. Obsidians get obsidian, ect.
    IDEA FOUR: CHATBOX
    Sometimes, people like myself are far too busy to get in game. This idea is basically a chatbox (another XenForo feature) for people to talk in. If any spam, advertisement, swearing, rudeness ect occurs, a forum ban (or a chatbox mute?) will possibly take place.

    Thank you all for your responses to this thread. Just so you all know: WHILE THE FORUMS IS DIRECTLY AFFILIATED WITH THE SERVER, IT DOES NOT MEAN THE SUGGESTIONS I HAVE PUT FORWARD ARE NOT EULA COMPLIANT - THEY ARE.
    - Youn. :)

    I like this, but why does it have to have a black outline? I think that would make the colours less fancy.
    Not a big fan of this. Don't know why, though. :confused1:
    I like this, but don't think Obsidian ranks should be able to change it to whatever they want. Not that I'm jealous, if you think that -__-, but because every rank has his rank as his title. Helpers have 'Helper', Administrators have 'Admin', Diamond has 'Diamond' so Obsidian should also have 'Obsidian' in my opinion. Also to avoid confusion between new users and someone's custom title. If someone changes his title to 'Guide', 'Reporter' or just something like 'King', some users might get confused and would think they are staff or would report players on the 'reporter's profile. I know that Obsidian is very similar to Emerald, but this shouldn't be a feature that makes the difference.
    I fully support this. If players feel lonely, want a conversation with someone, or have a question, the chatbox would be ideal. Instead of making a thread with the question "Is teaming allowed in Solo Skywars?" you could ask it in the chatbox and get your answer within seconds.

    Perhaps you can change the outline? It's just that white on a very light grey doesn't show up well. :p
    I suppose so, yeah. I will be editting the thread as I go along. :p

    I don't like the black outline part, but apart from that I think this would be cool.
    I don't really like that idea, for some reason. I think it should stick to donators, otherwise it wouldn't "stand out".
    Nice idea, +1
