raw friend colors

Short, concise description of the idea
Be able to choose custom colors for your friends, specified in hex.

Full description of the idea
For the friends page, we're allowed to give each friend a color that their entries will appear in. There's a predefined set of colors to choose from. If you have a lot of friends, you invariably end up with multiple friends with the same color, which can get confusing. Allow more variety of color by letting people choose to specify the color for a friend by giving a hex RRGGBB code.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Each friend can have a different background color
  • More control over friends page appearance
  • More attractive friends pages, if used well
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Implementation issues, and possibly performance issues
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Interface: On the screens where you add a new friend, or edit friends, the pull down menus for color choices should have "custom" as an option, and a text field would be next to or under that spot. If you select "custom" from the menu, it'd take a hex code from the text field as the color. Perhaps this would be a paid-members-only feature.
