In some places, shadow are on by default.
If you place a shadow tag there, it will reverse it.
There is no solution for the character number, sorry.
About the top-10 list, mine is black too, even if i have green in-game ;)

Hi, I am so confused, exactly where am I supposed to write this? I already made a profile etc. Do I have to make a new one or what?

Thank you

Has anyone discovered just how many char's you're limited to? I tried with my nick to use 3 colors, but with a color variation for my clan's tags and best I could see was that I could only have 24 char's. Anyone confirm this?

Ex: [PnX]MistaObvious with the code like $f00[$ff0PnX$f00]MistaObvious.

The problem is that color codes use up the character space.
I'll check soon how many characters you can have.
EDIT: 20 characters max, including color codes.
EDIT2: At least for sunrise :P

Not sure, but I think it's 21 characters, or more probably 21 bytes (so less chars if you use 2 or 3 bytes utf-8 characters).

And in TMN multiplayer/internet account it's 25 (don't know why it's longer, but it's a good idea to have the same nickname in profile and internet account: in game you see the nickname from profile, but after going in the players profiles infos you will see their nickname from internet account)

I just checked it. For TM Nations the limit
for your local profile is 20 characters.
for your ladder profile is 30 characters.
