I would like to see the usernames in different colors for special users, i.e. moderators, developers & ect.

It would also be a welcome addition to have the threads show a different color once a special user posts in it.

How about something a bit more subtle, such as changing the background color in the "authorcol" - the block at the left where the name and avatar and user info appear. It would be sort of like different colors for students and faculty on ID cards.

I think it's a good idea.

If you could also bold the person's title that would work in conjunction with that.

That way those who are colorblind would also be able to see it (I guess this is only an issue depending on the colors choosen).

Thank you for reminding us of this. The most common kind of color blindness is red/green, so we'd want to avoid using those two in combination.

So what colors to use? Perhaps, gold for administrators, blue for scientists, and red for the developers?

This is probably an even better idea than what I originally was thinking.

Wouldn't this be a tag in the css sheet anyway? Each project would have to choose the color combinations. Allthough I supose there would be a default scheme. It may also be an idea in the default scheme to only use one color for all of the special users.
