Manage Friends > Colours
Short, concise description of the idea
Mass modify friend colours instead of editing them each individually.
Full description of the idea
(This is a 're-submission of a historical suggestion' – it has been suggested in 2004, is tagged as 'implemented' but it still doesn't work that way (unless I misunderstood the meaning of 'implemented'.))
It is about the option to associate your friends with colours, so you have a better overview when reading your friends-list.
For the time being you have to write each name you want to choose a colour for in the box below the friends list and select background and foreground from a drop-down menu, which is quite inconvenient and time-consuming.
It would be easier if you could mass modify more friends at once. This would also be handy when you want to change the colours back to default – mass remove the colours for more, or all friends at once.
The way you pick the colours could be improved as well (instead of the drop-down menu you could choose colours by clicking on them and seeing a preview immediately. I would like to see more specific suggestions and ideas here though.)
Is this something someone else would like to see?
- A faster, more easier way to edit friend colours
- Seeing as this change would be more handy for users, I can't find any problems that might annoy them.
