Wouldnt that change all of the colors to black? Cause i like the diff colors, its usefull in recognising who wrote what. Or can you choose what colors you dont want to see? Either way if doc john cant/doesnt want to do anything about it, you can still politely ask. 99.99% dont mind at all and the rest well... if changing your color is so much trouble for you then you're not worth my time. *ignore feature works well too*

Unfortunately DocJohn, can't take the red color out of the chat program as it is a bundled program and we have to take what is offered in the program. Many many folks don't understand how color can affect people. A polite mention of it and asking to change color is appropriate. I guess everyone has to find their own best work around for this situation for the time being. Where there's a will, there's a way

I didn't think you sounded rude at all. Right now the only things we can do are ask that the person change their text color or use the setting over-ride. I personally have found the setting over-ride very handy and I'm very happy that someone told me how to do it.

On a side note I have noticed a thread in red anyone have any suggestions for that?

I meant more along the lines of an over ride for the forums. I really hate to be a pain, it is my issue after all. Some people just like to be colorful, I get that.

Mmm... It's not just you, I think many people find the colour red a trigger, psychologically the red colour is used for warning or for anger. I'm not bothered by different colours but I can understand why some find it unpleasant.

Anyway this thread was supposed to be about DocJohn's Q and A chat sessions!

Hugs

If someone is kicked from chat for too much profanity, how long are they kicked for?

Smile Re: Q&A Chat Rules

You can start attending chats immediately.
I understand we talk @ sensitive topics, profanity just doesn't help anyone or move us forward. Just triggers. This is a caring, helping community.

If this Chat was hosted (ie) prepared in advanced by a Chat Leader, you may consider
sending a brief apology via PM, to the Chat Leader &/or some members, if applicable.jmo

Peace,
Holmes

Thanks, but this might be different. My friend never kicked me, and he was hosting the chat. I got a warning from the chat, or something, and I held off the profanity, and then I accidentally swore and I was kicked, and now I can't go back on. I think it was one of those automatic warnings someone gets if they swear too much. But the host never kicked me out.
