Conversation-style Nick Coloring

Reported by: neoshroom Owned by: timothy
Component: Colloquy (Mac) Version: 2.3 (Mac)
Severity: Normal Keywords:


Implement an option for Conversation-style nick coloring (Conversation was a popular PPC IRC client). This feature is becoming more popular, is easy to implement and very useful.

How this works is you simply color each new person's nick who talks in chat a different color and retain that color when they talk again. The user, yourself, is traditionally always red. This greatly raids with memory, finding information and seeing who is talking. Ex: Bob's comments are always very clear from Frank's comments because Bob's name is blue and Frank's name is green. When scrolling over a large amount of past speech it is amazingly easier to quickly sort out who said what.

Again, this is a very easy feature to implement as an option and would be greatly appreciated.
