also FYI, they way to check how your name is going to look when you bold, italicize, change color or font is to do a fake post and mess with your name, the font colors, font types, etc are the same as available when you post

hers's my name is my color, in New Times Roman font, italicized and bolded.... I had better start posting

Yeah, I spent megapoints to get my name in "Comic Sans" but it didn't change so I just wasted my points. Ah well, c'est la vie!

Looks great!! I just did mine too! I think I might want to save up and make my actual name a contrasting color, but for now I like it!

I love giving gifts!!! That's why it's so hard for me to save up for something else.

I'm so glad you thought of that. That's been my biggest hurdle with this cause you can't preview it. Great idea!! Thanks so much!!!
Just out of curiousity - do the colors have names though? cause when you pick a color in the VB plaza I did not see any list of names or any previews and (just for example) - if I type in "blue" it can be any shade or hew of blue. How do I Know which one it is?
It still would be really nice to have a list of the colors and examples off to the side or something. (hint hint mods )

I love reading these threads - I didn't know how to change my name color, etc - didn't know I could do it as a premium member - yippee! Now all I need to do is find the time to read all the information on that thread...oh, I forgot, I'm at work - I have plenty of time!
But, seriously, I think that all the names that I see look just fine to me....whether they are basic, or premium...whatever floats your boat, let's just have a good time!

There's a new sticky in the PL if you haven't seen it- Wyan said that if it wasn't what you thought it would be that it could be changed.

yep, you just go in the color box (where the big A is, next to the font size) and click on the color, it will come up in brackets- my color is DeepSkyBlue, looks kinda like your flame color!

I read it to mean pertaining to the colour you choose.

I do not think we can ever change our username. In other words it looks like I am stuck with Persi. And although I was able to change my siggy and my avatar when I got Alley, I see no way of changing my username to include this new cat. AND I WILL TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, ALLEY IS %$#@# MAD OVER THIS WHOLE THING. Well, actually I do know a way and I did it a long time ago but it means starting your conter all over at zero again. But I think there is something you can ADD under your username when you get 1200 posts so I have promised Alley I will look into the matter at that time.
