This caused me to disband my fleet due to the fact the name would become gibberish a fleet of 50 disbanded just to appease a removal of color maybe you should add an edit fleet name option as well as squadron.

Ouch. I feel for you.

I wish there was a way to edit fleet and squad names. Such simple things DB could fix/add.

that’s awful. Leave it to a select few… namely one individual that I know of in particular… to ruin it for everyone.

Surely there’s a way to block certain codes instead of removing them all?

So the new mantra is the wants of the few outweigh the wants of the many.

Seems so. Just as DB was doing better…

If I don’t get my rich text back I’ll… I’ll… um… continue being a tad disappointed. Seriously though, it is stupid on DB’s part. Tweak the settings. Easy. But nope, they had to screw everyone.

Respectfully, I don’t feel like that’s a particularly accurate statement, judging by the small percentage of players and squadrons that actually took advantage of making their names look “special” with the rich text codes. The “many” have just been more vocal about having this option taken away. I feel confident in saying that the vast majority of players couldn’t give a hoot one way or the other, with the possible caveat that a good portion of those may have found it occasionally annoying.

Could you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

Agreed. The different colours, some bold, some italic, it all just looked a mess in my opinion.

However, I expect most people didn’t do it because they didn’t know how to. If DB added an actual function in the settings menu (e.g. colour/italics/bold for displayed name on leaderboards etc.) I expect a lot more might have taken advantage of it, (although I’m glad such options don’t exist).

Maybe DB can add some color text ability into the game text so we can have creativity without being obtrusive.

Most of my fleet enjoyed being able to bring some color to our handles. It is not the end of the world, very minor really but there were quite a few of us who enjoyed the fun. It just seems to me there is too much I don’t like it therefore nobody should enjoy it mentality that permeates the entire society. That along with there are a few who abuse it so nobody gets to have it It is a lazy solution to something that should never have been that big a deal to begin with. Beauty of society we can agree to disagree and still enjoy swapping war stories after the fact. I don’t blame anyone who has a differing view, I don’t get reasoning behind it but that’s ok. After all it is just a game, it really isn’t that important. LLAP all!

Ah that’s better, I didn’t think your first one looked very 3-d!

That looks pretty cool, I’m guessing you used that?
