Yeah, I got that. I want it to stand out, but not to the point where it hurts your eyes. Maybe just a darker gray will do.

Imelda, you're weird.

Do we get to choose our color options? Or are they randomly chosen for us? Or is there only one option?

Woah, it'd be cool if we could choose our color, would that be possible?

I think that would clash too much. Especially if people start picking lurid pink or neon green or something. I think a coordinated color scheme works much better (especially since the YWO color scheme is blue, and I like blue :] )!

But there could be some certain colours to choose from? Like only colours that match...a.k.a nothing neon xD

Yes, it would be possible to let people choose colors, but from a programmer's perspective, it wouldn't be practical.

For now I'm going to make it a darker form of gray, for both the blue and gray styles. Shouldn't be painful on the eyes, but should be easy to spot if people are scrolling down the thread.

Then we'll have people always wanting to add new colors.

Like orange?

Awww, the colour thing sounds great, maybe you could only have the colour palete for the text as options, then you wouldn't get horrid pinks etc.

Umm...Can I ask a question?
What if you need to change a post of a story for grammar reasons? Just editing? Do you have to pay for that? In points, I mean.

No. You can edit things without points.

You can also make a new post or thread with points if you want. That has the added benefits of appearing in the New Literature link, and keeping the newer critiques separated from the older ones (which IMO is good if you changed something drastically).
