LJ oddness
Have you noticed that the ability to set custom colours for your friends as they appear on your friends page has vanished?

The ability has not gone, just the control when you add people. You can change existing friends on the Manage -> Friends page but it's annoying. Wish they hadn't removed the page when you added friends...

Looking at some of the stuff that wimble links to, it seems that "most people didn't use them" and some styles don't support them and therefore they decided to "simplify" the add user page. This strikes me as somewhat patronising.

Erm, I meant imc. It's clearly too early in the morning.

If it's it's before noon then that is always true.

You're right! Ouch.

You can still set the colour via your Edit Friends page.

However, I'm getting flaky results at the moment. But I think that's LJ in general, not this specific function.

Something seems to have happened to LJ's QA of late. I'm sure they didn't used to break things quite so gratuitously.

Yes — lots of people have noticed. It's coming back, though. Hoorah.

That's good news.
