(I took Obscene off because there aren't enough colors and he hasn't posted anything here.)

More shall be added later on.
If you want anything added, ask.
If you are new to the suggestions, you must pick a color that hasn't been picked.
If you have suggestions, post them in your color or the color you want.
That dark blue is pretty much impossible to see when using the evo theme. Maybe a lighter blue?
Really? I can read it. I'll fix it if other people are having trouble.

his name/color is on the bottom of OP, so you can copy the color that's there
I know, thats what I did. I'm just lazy, haha.
Alrighty Tongue

But don't worry, I think from now on I'll just add them myself since I have those capabilities.
Stupid fancy mod powers

Yeah, that too, haha. Though you could probably still post what you added so its obvious, and so people will come look, otherwise no one will ever bother.
