Mr Fuzzy
Little tip for those new to Invision based boards...

When you use the buttons to set a font, size, or colour, click the button again after typing your post. Either that or use the 'Close all tags' link. The board won't accept the setting unless you do.

Edit: If you do feel the urge to use colours, be gentle on my eyes - light colours really don't work for text, and it's awkward having to highlight posts to read them.
didn't someone find all the colors you could make awhile back ago? hmmm.... ponders
[FONT=Impact][COLOR=orange]I think I can... I think I can... I think I can
I will type in orange impact! I will, I must!!
*Breaks into the Alliouiah chorus* Wow my self esteem just jumped 5 points
Sir Maxerpopple

yes as is this dry.gif

Yeah just experiment with colors you like, chances are you will get something out of it. Yep.
hm.. i think one day someone shoudl write down all the colors...
Sir Maxerpopple
Beter yet, inscribe them into a ring in aramaic and sell it on e-bay as a LOTR authentic artifact or a trinket from a dig at a Crusades battle ground. I hope the aramaic literate don't use e-bay.
umm...krys...someone already has. Crayola did it, and added a few of their own. check your local toy store coloring aisle for details.
Here's a thread to help anyone trying to experiment with the colors on the board (since everyone kept talking about it):

The Undiscovered Colors Thread
This should do the job smile.gif (assuming the forums use the standard HTML colour names, which i'm sure they do).
Ooo! if this is right this should be green I think lets see...

hmm.. not green right second attempt this will be blue

Ok not looking good here hows about orange?

Im thinking now is the time for a hasty retreat whilst I rehearse my all too rusty colour theory! Are there other colours out there? and how on earth do you train them to sit still and behave whilst trying to concentrate on letters? Eep!

Now lets see if you sit there quietly and I type this you should be ... ah! ... hmm........
Little observation from when I was messing around on the spoonguard thread.. You can use hex values for colours.


Like so.

What's a hex value? Hex (hexadecimal) is a numbering system, like decimal. It goes through the numbers 0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-A-B-C-D-E-F. Hex colours use three colour strains, red, green, and blue, aka RGB. 0 is the darkest, and F is the lightest. (so #000000 is black, and #FFFFFF is white). Each of these strains has two digits, and you preface the whole thing with a #.

That example above looks like this:

(with added line breaks so it doesn't trail of the edge of the post).

You can of course go for even more shades by using 01, 02, 03, 5B, F3 etc., but I'm too lazy for that and it's more shades than the human eye can distinguish anyway.

Well, I'm done.
Actually 00 is the darkest, FF is lightest. tongue.gif But if you want simplicity you can go for 3 digits of hex (eg. #f0f) instead of the usual 6 (#ff00ff). Usually the extra colour resolution that 6 digits gives you is more confusing than helpful.

Lets explain the hex stuff more. In decimal (the usual number system we use, with 10 digits (0 to 9) since thats how many fingers we have - convenient eh) you use the digits 0 to 9 and each digit in the number has a value 10 times that of the number to the right of it, so:

15 in decimal = (10 x 1) + (1 x 5) = 15 (in decimal again tongue.gif)

Hexadecimal (shortened to hex) gets used in computers because it happens that 2 digits of hex nicely represents numbers from 0 to 255, the same as one byte in binary (convenient because computers tend to split things down into bytes, but it's a lot easier to write, say, 0f than the binary equivalent 00010000) . In hex there are 16 digits (0 to f, where a = 10, b = 11, c = 12, d = 13, e = 14, f = 15 ... you get the picture - they ran out of digits so they started using letters), likewise each digit now represents 16 times the value of the digit to the right of it.

15 in hex = (16 x 1) + (1 x 5) = 21 in decimal.

(while we're at it binary follows the same rules except it's base 2, there are 2 digits, 0 and 1, and each digit represents 2 times the value of the digit to the right of it).

</geek waffle caused by boredom>

So how does that help colours? In the colour codes each pair in the triplet (first pair representing red, second green, third blue) can have a value from 00 (black) to ff/255 (full brightness). It tends to be a lot easier to work out how your colour will come out if you know how the numbering system works. smile.gif

I'm not exactly certain but I think the colour mixing behaves slightly differently on computer screens to mixing paint colours because computer screens are emissive light sources whereas paint on paper is reflective (also somewhat annoyingly the eye copes better with reflective sources because 99% of what we see is lit this way).

It's that, and also the fact that mixing paint colours is mixing negatives, since you're working with what you want to be absorbed, effectively. Hence mixing all the colours on paper gives you black, but on a screen it gives you white. Strange that the red/blue/ mix works the same way, but blue/green/yellow has green and yellow switched. *shrugs*
Ok I know I'm not a noob but this has been bugging me for a while now. Since the posting screen changed I am now unable to change my colours. How do I do it using the icon. I'm stuck. Help!!!
When you click on the change colour icon, scroll up to the top of the screen and VOILA! A colour palette has appeared.

It's still there, it's just shy.
I soo didnt know that!
Hell's Vampyre
Ok so I have the font and size down pat,I'll have to wait about the color part though...
Thanks for the advise!
thats how you do it
Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or your mother ).

if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

Why should you waste your time?
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.

in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.

if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit sex, No gambling, No drugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit sex, no gambling, no drugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )
if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( {Bookmark it })
read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, sex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.
