Add "Color" To Formatting Bar

To those who are confused with the title, this is what I mean by “formatting bar”:



If you look through the buttons / menus…there's no color!
So my suggestion is to add a color menu to the “formatting bar”. Here is a bad mockup of my idea:



The custom menu might have a color wheel and/or an RGB input. It also may appear on the top for easier access (thanks, Sheep_maker!)

You must be wondering…“but alexphan why is this useful”. The answer to your question…it promotes creativity, it will have the color tag more known, and there will be less questions about changing the color of text.

If you are also wondering…“but alexphan this could cause spam” or “but alexphan white/transparent could be abused”. Well, then I should introduce you an amazing invention I'd like to call…

The Report Button!! :O

What do you guys think? If you don't like this idea, please explain why.

I would probably like to have that feature too. While I would personally not user it that often, I am pretty sure that other Scratchers would like to express their personalities even more.

Support, it would make the color tag more known.

However I don't think white or transparent should be in the list.

Support. It would be more convenient. I think some people might like that. But yeah, like Sheep_maker said, I don't think white on transparent is needed in the list.
For the color picker, I think it can be like the one in MS Paint.

Support, as it would be a way to make coding even more fun. It shouldn't be a priority, though.

That is true…It should be added, but maybe not the first thing to do.

Support, If this feature is added to the formatting bar, there's going to be more colorful posts and fewer questions on how to change the text color.

How will it be used? The only thing I can think of is colors everywhere.

Coming soon, I guess? Here's a demo. (This is a signature, for any new forum users wondering)

Semi-support. I agree on those reasons, but I can still think of colors everywhere.
