Thumbs up Suggestion: Color Fonts Option

Colors are so-o effective and add an extra dimension to communication

Web Design - why - not Forum Design?

The forum itself has plenty of color to it. As for them posts themselves, I think we want to maintain a professional business look. Allowing for a variety of colors, font sizes, etc. would distract from that. Being able to bold, italicize an underline is enough flexibility.

Besides that, I have seen what you do !! with fonts over at Search Engine Watch Forums in the beginning and it was not pretty. We had to remove all the capability to change colors, font types and colors because everyone of your posts looked like an experiment on how many colors and font sizes one could get into a post

I agree David!

And more to the point, Let's focus on quality content and ease of use. I couldn't care less about the look.

I agree. Quality content is red - err, read - no matter what color it is

One of the things that attracted me to this forum was its simplicity - it's not so busy that you don't know exactly where to look.
