I see what you mean. Plenty of Webkinz have done a lot a post and are helpful, but Gifted users, GGs, ect. worked a bit more than us Webkinz to get colored usernames.

I don't really like it sorry. They did work hard to earn that green user name and the blue one. Yes the GT did work hard but just because someone isn't a GT doesn't mean they are better than the Webkinz. The blue and green are only in place so people who are gifted can find them a lot easier. Justin already said no to any more user name colors. Also it would be a lot harder to find staff members

Dancing letters are too big and too dizzying; the rainbow letters are hard to see in some spots.

You mentioned how Gift Trainees work hard to achieve their status; I have to disagree. All you have to do to become a GT is read the GE rules and post an agreement. If you're accepted, then BAM, you're a Gift Trainee.

We could pay at least 1,000 WI bucks to get a multicolored username or even one with letters that dance. So, here's what my name and one of my WI friends' name would look like with both features.
Rainbow:

Even if we couldn't have these, Gift Trainees should still receive a colored username for all the hard work they had to do to become a GT. Maybe their usernames could be silver! Silver is still a wonderful color, but we wouldn't stand out as much since the hue is only one step above black. In addition, ImTara55 suggested that we pay WI bucks for our WW IDs to be colored if Gift Trainees can't have silver usernames. So, what do you think? or ?

-Scissors

This is also impossible. Username colors for different usergroups are written in PHP I believe. And look like this in the coding: Admins would look like this: <b><font color=red>Administrator</b></font>. It is impossible to add in all the colors to make it rainbow. As I believe it would make it too large for the maximum coding.

As for the dancing letters, theres no use even trying to converting the HTML from them into the normal kind, and you will have to do that for every single name, which would take at least 500+ hours to do a good 20,000 members, then you still have a good 80,000 members left.

So, there's no point in even trying

But, it is a great idea, and if it was possible, it would be very fun!

There's a lot more than that, Zingoz. You have to have 50 helpful posts, and it takes time to think your answers through if you're going to help someone.

Default Re: .:.An idea for WI: Rainbow usernames!.:.

I see both sides of this situation. I know that the GG and Gifted members work hard for their colored usernames, but what about the members who aren't allowed/can't/don't want to use the GE? And several of the Webkinz (myself included) have a hard time understanding the work that goes into the GE because, well, we've never experienced it. And the lil' kinz and Webkinz work equally as hard to keep this forum going as all of the other members. (Well, except the Mods and Admins and Founders because they have to work exceptionally hard.) Another thing to consider is those of us who have avatar and signature shops! Without the Webkinz, there would be a whole lot less, because being Gifted, GG, etc, takes a lot of dedication, as does and A/S shop. Many of the members can't handle both. I don't honestly think that WI bucks are a good way to go about this. I think there should be something that a Webkinz has to do to earn them, that way it's not unfair to the Gifted/GG's, and they can't complain that the Webkinz didn't "Earn" the colors. But I am all for a way to get colored names for the Webkinz besides the GE!

I think colored usernames give people a goal. "I want a colored username, so maybe I should start making good posts and apply to become a GT" Also like other people have said, it wouldn't be fair to Gifteds, GCs, Mods, etc. that they worked hard for their's. Thanks for sharing, though

I was saying, "No." to the WI bucks idea at first, but I just decided to post it. Maybe you could earn a rainbow username by having at least 100 helpful posts? Or, you could be able to have your username be a different color on holidays! WI members that live in the US could have red, white, and blue usernames on Independence Day, and ones that celebrate Halloween could have an orange and black name that day. It would be just for one day, though, and there could be an option in the User CP that would ask you if you wanted to change your color for the holiday.

I think it sounds like a step in the right direction!

we need to find a way to use the WI bucks to reward ourselves. or else they are just "meaningless". =(

and I think something needs to be thought up and a decision made quickly as people are losing heart in WI bucks because they have been around for a long time with no real use or meaning.

I want to applaud Justin and the ADmins. for coming up with the WI bucks idea, maybe they will allow us to help out with a brainstorming committee and submit some ideas to them?

I think the idea has gotten stale and I don't want people to lose heart. Not us, not Justin, Not anybody.

Let keep it fresh with ideas like yours!
