Really appreciate the feedback Kash. The color thing, I was pretty much experimenting, I'm going to be trying different things. The only reason I used so many colors, was so nobody had similar colors. Plus, I make Cris Collinsworth color red. I decided to make the color for the commentators black and red, because that looks a little more hardcore. The sad thing about red is, I have to type it in each time...or at least use another color and then change it to red.
This Saturday and Sunday though, I'll be using green and red coloring for Christmas. A little cliche, but it will look a little festive.
As for the word abbreviation, I think I was originally told back on Showdown to use abbreviations instead of colors as a specific example, but if you wish, I will start using names instead. I'll also consider using that method while writing HWA shows too, but if the users read just a little bit more before certain things, they could figure out who it is.
For example, at the beginning of the show, I not only announce Cris Collinsworth and Gus Johnson, but I also color code their names in that announcement, as sort of a legend key for the show. I get what you're saying though, so I'll think about it, at least for character promos. Announcer wise, they ARE announced at the beginning of the show like I just said, and even though it wouldn't take that much longer typing out the extra character or two, it's still sort of a habit that I'd have to break, and it does save a little time.
Once again though, I appreciate the feedback. This week's show will not use as many colors. I think I'll use the two colors for commentators, bold and italicized for actions like I've been doing, and then blue and green for promos. Well this week, I'll actually be using all black for promos like Kash said, because I won't have to use black for Collinsworth, and then I'll probably use green for promos with more then one character.
