Well what you do is you can use the built in color changing for the message board, becuase HTML is not allowed /) well say what you would do is hermm if u wanted green text then you would put in this syntax
[COLOR=GREEN]*insert text wanted to be green here*[/COLOR]
I do not have a complete list of the colors that are valid, but i imagine that all of the color names here would work. You might want to check with one of the admins, or a senior member, or someone else who knows the complete list of valid colors for one. Hope this helps.
oh yes, where the GREEN is after the = , you would put in any color NAME. I do not know if hex values work or not though....
