Jazz Getting rid of the color usergroups

So those color usergroups we use to make our names pretty colors. I'm thinking of getting rid of them altogether. The main attraction of them was the glow, but since that tag only works on IE (which no one uses anymore pretty much), it only really adds color to the name itself, which can make reading difficult on some styles.

Since there's no way I know of to rework these groups, I feel it's best to just delete them. They aren't really doing the site any good these days, unless it turns out most of our remaining members actually use IE regularly.

Thoughts?

IE I'm using the internet! Haha!

But yeah, IE is a trojan waiting to happen, its a scumbag piece of coding security hole. TBH noone in their right mind uses IE. I do however miss the colors since switching to FF ages ago, you think it'd have been updated by now but obviously isn't. I say aye to getting rid of it as it seems pointless now.

I'll be sad to see them go, if only just because I'm so used to them being there, but I see the point to getting rid of them, so if you feel it's necessary then I won't complain.

At the same time, is there a benefit to getting rid of them? If we're tossing it just because I'm not sure I see why it hurts to just leave it around as an option. Likely nobody will really get use out of the full prettifying considering IE's main function nowadays is to download a better web browser, but I think the option to pick name colors is still cool.

If it's possible, maybe a happy medium might be trimming the options down to something more basic (since I know without the glow being visible a lot of the color options look redundant even if they technically "aren't"), or is it a case where the choice is either nuke the whole thing or leave everything standing?

Well, since I just joined I really don't have a preference as to what happens. All I say is do what is for the betterment of the site

I could just trim them down to colors with no glow, but the issue there is that the colors could conflict with backgrounds on various styles, making it difficult to read usernames.

I get that, but the same thing was true when we had people posting in colored text, which is still an option, so by that logic why not get rid of colored text on the site altogether? I'm not actually arguing for that because please don't, I'm just not sure it's something that's really that big of a problem. But then I'm usually on the side of more options for customization even if some of them might be silly.

How about we make a deal. Look for some sort of HTML markup (or whatever) that could be used that actually works on all browsers, and I'll re-implement the colors (once I actually get around to clearing out the existing ones, so you have at least 5 years).
