yeah that'd be neat if they were assigned the rank of GM and received the color red... red is the color of passion... passion and blood... blood spilled by those who do not follow the ways of the cactus!!!! long live the IFCCOD! *detonates bomb strapped to chest*

I voted "yes," for no particular reason. Although it does make it easier to find them when they disappear, like all GMs do.
Whoops, I didn't mean to type that.... Razz

I vote fluorescent green, construction orange, or firetruck red.

Voted yes, although I do have premonitions of people attempting to start games for the sake of the rank. I also assume the rank will be stripped when the game comes to an end?

@Flux: The beef I have with red is that it doesn't read very well on this background; same with most dark colors, in fact. Need something brighterish; my original design featured orange; but still gonna wait to see what y'all think.

@CG: I don't think that the act of starting games for the sake of rank alone will be too much of a problem, for a couple reasons. a) All games still need to be approved, and I won't be letting anything half-baked in here. b) If the GM isn't serious about GMing, his game will eventually fizzle and die and the rank will be removed anyway.

About the stripping of rank; that would be the generally-followed procedure, though on request I may allow some GMs to keep their ranks if they plan on sequels, other games, etc. Addition and removal of the rank will be at Admin/Moderator discretion, however.

I'd love it but I think their should be a color/rank difference between constant game and a stand alone. Also a great GM should be able to be voted into keeping the rank even between games.

It's an orange, actually; a burnt orange. Hex code #808000. Smile Lighter? Darker?

I think it should be dark green instead, but if you want to keep it orange then I say lighten the color since at the moment it looks musterd yellow, which is a rather ugly color.

It is a little dull, to be honest, and doesn't stand out very well against the background. I'd maybe go with a different colour, and perhaps slightly brighter - one that will contrast with the Mod colour, perhaps?

Kay, I've set us up with a green for it; I'm leaning towards more of the yellow-green-orange-red spectrum, but let me know if you think I should try and contrast it even further with some blues.

I suck at color. Razz

I think you've got the green working. It certainly stands out!

Yeah, the green looks good. I don't really care if the GMs get their own color, but it doesn't matter either way to me.
