    It'd be cool to unlock more titles (e.g. Newbie, Active Member, Donor) and allowing us to pick between them to change our color in shoutbox/display on the forums

    I'm for and against this. On the one hand, it offers extra features to members who actually participate in discussion around the forum, but on the other hand it can become very gaudy very quickly. There will be at least 3 people who make everything yellow just to be annoying. On top of that, if you can change your user group color, you could change it to a color that is used by staff members. One potential solution would be to add only a small number of color options, such as colors available to non-turbos on twitch.

    I don't want the ability to change my color to something of my choosing, but instead pick from a drop-down of the ones available to me. That way it's a bit less abusable, and I can commemorate my 1000th post with the newbie flair etc.

    What?! Who would do such a thing? I do not agree with you on this part.

    Great idea, Whyte.

    What you are requesting currently isn't possible without a custom plugin it seems.

    Xenforo uses a weights system for displaying user styles.
    Lets use your account for an example.

    [​IMG]

    Currently you are listed as in the following groups.
    Registered
    Active Member
    Donor.

    Registered has a weight of 0 and is the default.

    [​IMG]

    Active Member has a weight of 1
    Donor has a weight of 333

    Because Donor is higher, it displays by default.

    From what I can tell there is no way for me to allow users to manage groups that they are a member of and which group has its CSS show.
