    I feel that the standard black on brown signs don't always work for everything. For example, sometimes you need certain signs to stand out more than others, sometimes you need to color code your signs, sometimes you need signs to be more easily readable, so on and so forth. I think coloredsighs would be a simple solution to this and a great addition to the server.

    We used to have colored signs and colored chat until last reset. I would love to see those things come back!

    That's how it used to be. Donor ranks had colored text until last reset.

    I don't care for the chat as much as I would like to have the sign formating back they should give colors to like prestige and maybe some more advanced formatting to donors or higher levels of ranks!

    Oh, I didn't know that! I joined in December 2018. Glad to know it's possible though. :)

    I 100% agree with you on this although if it's not too hard to add in, colored chat would be a fun bonus I'm not gonna lie.

    Indeed it would be. We have chat and signs back then but chat colors got messy and with the chat already being so messy they removed it and maybe a new chat format would give chat colors an opportunity. Now I have no idea why they removed sign colors but it was only a donor perk about a few years ago.

    I keep seeing people say this - that chat colors are "messy" and "spammy". I don't really see what people mean by that though. I don't remember there being any significant issues with chat colors, and I don't see how colored text is any different to white text. If someone spams with a color, they should be punished just the same as if they had not used a color.

    Adding on to this, someone brought up a good point in chat: It could make chat harder to read for staff and anyone who is trying to read chat fast. One possible suggestion I have is to have a command to disable colors in your own chat, but not have that affect anyone else. None of this applies to signs though.

    Oh, that's very clever! Thank you for sharing that even if it doesn't apply to signs specifically. <3

    Coloured signs did use to be a thing; however, if this is to make a comeback, it'll most probably stick to donators just because its more of a extra cosmetic feature then what a player needs.

    I commend you for making this suggestion, we'll get back to you with an answer soon.

    Oh yes, that makes sense for it to be just donators.

    Thank you for your reply, I'll be awaiting your answer. :)

    Colored signs are coming in 1.14 by dying them. So just be patient.
