Should we implement a /friends list in-game?
Yes, definitely! That would be a great help.
Maybe
No, I know who my friends are in-game!

There should be a /friends list, that functions as the opposite of the /ignore list. Maybe even tells and shouts from folks on the /friends list could be coloured differently (two different colours, to still distinguish between the /tells and /shouts from players on the /friends list ....)

It seems to me this has been suggested before.
The opposite of /ignore would be /unignore (using /ignore again).
Anyway, what colours would you suggest for those /tells and /shouts?

I don't think a different color would be good. Maybe underscores, or show the name in bold/italic.

As for colours, all useful colours are occupied. IIRC we use green and yellow for bold and italics. Unless you're talking about dwc, which is what development is focussing on while we have a feature freeze on main. On the other hand, some names already use underscores, because it's allowed in names.

Could possibly have a colour just for the name as another alternative to look at. Just don't make the colour be that sickly purple. *has horrible memories*

The signature isn't ready yet. Come back tomorrow!

What about changing the names to the colour used for login messages? Slightly darker than shout.

I don't mean the direct opposite of /ignore but rather the functional, abstract opposite :P

So instead of ignoring these folks their messages are highlighted.

How about keeping the colours as is but just increasing luminance in them?
