    As part of an upcoming change to how we discuss things in vendor-specific threads, I've developed an add-on for the forum software that shows a thin strip of colour on the left of a thread, in the main thread list view, for certain vendors.

    It's based on the tags set on the thread. So if a thread is about Intel you'll get a strip of blue. AMD gets red. Nvidia get their green. Apple get a nice rose gold I found. PowerVR get their purple. You get the idea.

    The vendor list is mostly exhaustive for those we talk about here:
    • Intel
    • AMD
    • Nvidia
    • Apple
    • Sony
    • Microsoft
    • IMG
    • Nintendo
    If you dislike the colour assigned to a vendor or want another one added, let me know here and I'll consider it.

    So tag threads with the name of the vendor, where appropriate, so it's clear to those looking at the thread list what the thread is mostly about from a vendor point of view.

    Maybe a fat pink block. Seems apt.

    Oh boy, if this migrates to the console forum, things could get confusing fast. ;)

    Xbox - Green, with AMD GPU - Red.
    Nintendo - Red, with NV GPU - Green.

    :D

    @Rys any thoughts on adding for the following tags or companies?

    valve - perhaps a cheeseburger like color for Gabe?
    sega - whatever color a super fast hedgehog would be?

    tbh, I feel like logos would be more useful instead of the thread avatars.:confused:

    I did play with logos, but I think that's a better idea inside the thread rather than on the thread list. I'll keep working on that.
