Maybe I'm missing something obvious here, but when I look at games other people are playing, it's never obvious which player is which. The game information doesn't seem to contain this info either...

Black's name is written in black. White's name is written in white. I agree with you though, it isn't entirely obvious.

Ah, thanks for that, the name colors were just a complete blind spot. I didn't actually realize they were different.

In my case, White is white and Black is orange ;)

I too find it hard to process, even though I've known for a long time that the names are highlighted.

Would "Player 1 (w) vs Player 2 (b)" be satisfactory? I can make a ticket for that.

It'd be better for me if instead of black and grey it were actually black and white. I'm on the magnolia style.

The problem is that I think each style has it's own colour scheme and an update to make every style display the names as black and white could break them (not to mention it would look terrible on some colour combinations). It would probably be easiest if you uploaded your own version with the black and white names if you know how to edit the skins.

They're a basic .css file with comments on which style corresponds to which part of the site. It's relatively easy to create your own :)

I think black and white stones next to the names would be ideal, Illluck.
