Personally, I love it when s/he posts in color. I forgot the reason I stopped typing all of my posts on this forum in #008000.

I believe that as long as the color is readable, (Not bright colors or neon) then it should be allowed.
Thank Mech, and btw, I'm a he

This isn't about your habit, in fact it is still readable. Welp, guess I'll leave this topic now.

I'm starting to get annoyed of color text, so if I see one more post that has color, I will report it.

And that report will most likely be ignored since no harm has been done.

Also imagine reporting someone because they used some color in their message.

Just ignore it like Rhosty said.

Did you know that a post that annoys you does not inherently violate the rules (which is what the report button is for).

Turns out you obviously haven't. looking at your post in your Streets of Rage 4 topic, a literal eyesore

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

To beautify their words enticing and prepossessing enough to attract others.
Also, using coloured text help make the post more charming and lively, instead of that drabbing and monotonic black.
