Ok so i've been wanting this for a long time, as the crew system is as of right now in my case not very beneficial to use. You see whenever you don't have a color, your name, as a crew member, becomes black. Pitch black, infact. This is not veryhandy if anyone wants to see what i have to say in chat.

And sure, I could get some reward chests and get myself a color. But frankly I don't want to go through the hassle of choosing a color every 30 minutes, so i come with 2 options on how to solve this:

1. give crew members an option to leave crew
2. give crew members who haven't chosen a color a lighter color than black(such as the same color non-crewmembers have, as they have readable colors, so why can't I?)

The point of black is that it is almost a non-color. No color equipped = no visible chat (to an extent). The system already has a balance here, just level up to get a bunch of unwanted items and use them to increase the life of your color, even beyond its original maximum. For example, I had a color that was as far as 9 days of lifetime left, that's a lot of time if you consider that you can unequip it while you are not in-game to save time. That was all through restoration using unwanted items and even then my inventory was almost full.

Personally I don't care if my color is black, it is still readable to an extent. However if you're talking to someone and you're in a cave or it is nighttime, you can:

1. As saerfratspop mentioned, get unwanted colors and equip them for the time being.
2. If you are already on the Phase client, open it in another window and use that to chat.
3. Settle on a color you like and proceed to extend its lifetime with unwanted items. (So far I only extended my color to a little over a day)

I'd also like to mention that crew has countless advantages over non-crew. With crew you can build on the surface of build and through the trading system get not only sweet colors, titles, and tags, but also get some neat commands to help you (/= is my fave).

I gotta hand it to h4x here, the black color is very irritating. And it just seems like it's forced participation to get some DP for colors just so people can read your text. And Rofle, the colors should just stop decaying when you aren't ingame. Players shouldn't need to take them off everytime they leave DG.

It's suppose to be annoying. You're not suppose to have black text because you should have colors equipped. I hardly play and look at my inventory, seriously look at it. I have that many colors (of different rarities) and I had a 9 day color. I could probably have made that last forever but I left it on for about 8 days so it dropped. If you play the game, meaning you use the chat, then you likely have enough income to get colors (both via voting and XP).

Further, they don't stop decaying because that requires an additional service-wide synchronisation. Don't spout out things so simply when you have absolutely no knowledge of the effort and difficulty in making it work.

Exactly, meaning forced participation.

Not forced participation. No one is holding a gun to your head to make you do it. It's encouraged participation through reoccurring rewards. Let's not also forget that my post above literally provides proof to the contrary. I stated I have many colors, one with even 10 days of time and I don't play much at all.

"Don't spout out things so simply when you have absolutely no knowledge of the effort and difficulty in making it work." You've mentioned something like this in the past, about colors and equipped items not decaying when you aren't in a dimension, so I mentioned it. And yes, while you may have a color which lasts 10 days [R8+ I think], I was stuck with an R6 which died in 3 hours from a vote box. You talk like it's so easy to get a color like that. And when I said "Forced Participation" I meant to a certain extent. Being "Forced" to do something doesn't imply that you are under threat of death if you don't act whatsoever. I mentioned forced participation because thats how the system works : Farm DP or vote every day or you'll have to live with a color which people cant read properly. Of course, it's not forced to a big extent like you mentioned, but it is forcing to a certain point. And I don't know about you, but I don't find this crap "Encouraging". I find it goddamn annoying.

You mention them not decaying while in-game like this is something that we can add it right now and that I've never said will be a thing before. You can't bring up things that are not possible in the immediate future.

Further, it is encouraging because the annoyance of a dark color will sway you to get one. They are not mutually exclusive. If you simply played with the system for a few days, you would have enough colors to last you a few weeks. You are complaining about a non-issue because you cannot invest the small amount of time required for the long haul. I've yet to gain any colors for weeks, but I still have many. There is no proof that what I have is unique and impossible. This is why I don't cheat the system and play as any member would, because it allows me to test and prove that the system is not broken.

You have said something like that before, And that was 8 months ago. And you act like it's easy af to get stuff like you have, where it obviously isn't. I barely get any DP from Zombies/PvE [Around 300 every 10 mins] as the dimension is low on DP, meaning I'll have to rely on trades and voting to get colors. I've given up on leveling up as it's too much of a pain to maintain efficiency, and I'm thinking about giving up working to get colors aswell. I have a busy life on the internet, and to be completely honest I'd rather spend my time on DG socializing with the community than fighting shit.

Raz you know getting DP requires money, and DG barely has enough to even stay up for a month at a time?

If you just want to socialise you don't even need to go in-game for that.

As a matter of fact, it IS easy af to get things. You'd better muster up, don't slack off. If you want it done, do it yourself. I mean, look at my inventory. Throughout the entire Vacation, I've gathered all these things. I've also been very generous, giving colors and so forth to other players. and it's once again, FILLED I SAY FILLED BOI with stuff.

Lol, I turned a 3 hour color into 6 hour, then the next day into 12 hour, until it became a 1 day 12 hour color, but I now have two, a purple and a gold-ish color. The system isn't hard, you just open up dip and vote a bit = a color that lasts for a century. I love the current system (Except for the leveling system, but it's bearable) I would send you a color razor, but I'm not level 7 yet...
