Like the title says, what’s the big deal? It affects nothing and makes players happy by making themselves a little different. I don’t understand the hardline stance on something that doesn’t matter at all, especially since you can already type in color.
Remember in Game of Thrones when John wanted to mine the dragon glass? The advice given to Daenerys was give them something by giving them nothing.
You guys could learn a thing or two.
And as I was told growing up…pick your battles.
