    Nicknames: New Orange Color and Fading Letters?

    Guys, why don't you apply these minor addons? I mean:

    1. New Orange Color for Nicknames etc. That's weird it doesn't exist right now!
    2. Fading Letters, from 100% opacity to 0% and from 100% to 50% (I guess?) like it was in old good quake... That was very effective and allowed making very nice clan tag and nicknames variations.

    If that ever happens I hope they use that opportunity to increase the max. length of clan names to 7 chars (now it's 5).

    Yes, that would be also fine. These are just minor changes but very practical ones...

    Html color codes? It's been suggested before, just never made it in. Would be fun. Of course premium only.

    I think they don't want to have names fading, flashing, or black text because it obscures names. Willing to bet html colors just needs to be requested enough.

    Exactly, dear ID, not everyone knows how web colors work but there is a very nice tool which is called COLOR PICKER! This would solve any problems! Why don't you apply it then?

    Take a look:

    Only premium? Hmm... could be, ID would have another little argument for selling premiums :P

    I believe this can't be changed due to limitations in the coding. (I asked sponge recently, but I forget the exact answer)

    The colors are based on ANSI escape codes. Adding extra colors would probably need some serious recoding work.
