I know this is falling on deaf ears but I am going to say it anyway; why are you forcing the color pink on players?  Give us an option for another color if you want this "enhancement" to better our playing experience.  Right now I have deleted anything that would have my name because the color you all forced upon us reminds me of Pepto and it causes my eyes to do wonky things.  

Pink is only acceptable when it has to do with Breast Cancer Awareness not in a Global Chat of a game.  Please come up with color options otherwise as far as I am concerned this "enhancement" was not needed.

I like the larger notifications font, but font-size 13 is a bit too big.  Size 12 looks a lot better, in my view.

I like all of these changes, especially the notification page.

Making the colour identifiers optional would be ideal, and if the notifications could be restricted to two lines each (ie remove the 'x hours ago' note, and change date/time to 2 rather than 3 lines) that would be pretty fantastic.

All things considered though Thumbs Up

Wow. The Notifications change is nearly unreadable. I used to be able to get a sense of things on one page, but now I'm just scrolling and scrolling and scrolling.

The chat colors are fun....Although mainly my alliance has just been tormenting each other with them so far xD

I agree that putting alliance-relation-colors in the options would be nice instead of forcing them on everyone. Choosing 'which' color for both types of highlighting would be nice too if possible.

THANK YOU for putting an OFF button on the pink personal name highlighting. An option to turn off the green/yellow/blue would be nice.

In AC, especially, the blue is overdone and unnecessary. I logged in to an entire line of solid blue down AC Chat, and now it's a dashed line because it's just me and someone else talking. If they're in my AC, I'm pretty sure that I know they're in my Alliance and don't need a blue line to determine that. 

The color bars in GC are just really, really distracting. I don't know if anyone else finds it that way, or maybe it's only that way for someone with ADHD, but I more or less found it instantly  to be a visual distraction.

The re-vamp of the Notification's page? AWESOME. I can now read that without squinting. I really appreciate the larger type.

Please make the alliance relationship highlighting thing go away.  If I don't already know what alliance someone is in, I can easily determine that by clicking on their name.  I have no desire to see everyone categorized by what my alliance's relationship with them is.

At minimum, give us the option to turn this "feature" off.

Thanks!
