I've been exploring the chat rooms more and more these days and finding them rather more fun that I thought I would. There is, however, one thing that most people observe and that is that it's quite difficult to see the colours of some fonts against a custom background (which by the way, I think is a brilliant feature). I was wondering if the contrast or brightness of the background could be set to a custom level to make it easier to see colours. Obviously at first it would be trial and error to get it right, but in the end would prove quite useful, I think.

Interesting suggestion, would make the bg more of a watermark.

For now orange font seems to be a good choice for most BGs.

I personally find some of them to be quite annoying. It's a nice idea, but the execution isn't great. There is one in particular that's gray bricks, pretty much exactly the same shade as everyone's names.

Although some have to change their colors I find that the pink background seems to make pics and gif's stand out more.

It might be an idea to have the option to turn off backgrounds in every room. My 2 cents

I find that many of the backgrounds can be distracting and make the rooms hard to read as well. I also think turning them off would be great, BUT, it would then be hard to tell if others who have it on can still see your text, right? I mean if some have it on, and others have it off.

How hard would it be to add a space at the top of the room where the room creator could add a picture but that it didn't fill the whole chat box?

I don't know. LOL

A lot of people in the chat rooms like to have it off. kekekegay

On the rare occasions that I venture into the chat rooms, I love the atmosphere the pictures evoke. It would be great to turn them on kekekegay and off at will, though, if it's possible, as they make my eyes tired after a bit.

Sorry, Gav.
