    Something like F4CC90 might work. It's pretty subtle but It's different enough from the normal text and the admin-gold, while keeping the overall color scheme.

    I think I like that color Tear. Good job! Have some REP! Of course, I'm not closing this issue yet.

    I'm looking at the available colors on the text here just to see what's quick and easy...and of course to see what looks good and not too crappy.

    I gotta say links in light pink isn't too bad and the light purple isn't too bad either. I use the light pink and gray in my sig and also the light blue for My Maps (when that gets fixed). Since there are so many dudes here we'd probably have to go light blue. The color Tear suggested is just a bit too close to Arcana gold, IMO. The oranges are okay as well.

    Blue is a standard for link colors in all browsers - personally I'd prefer sticking with what folks are used to seeing (though the lighter blue does work better with this color scheme)

    For the links, do we need to take into account that some folks are colourblind or have duff monitors and something too subtle might not be noticed ?

    I should use a color, I usually just put an underline on my links. The light blue jumps out the most imo but about half of the others would work as well.

    Personally, my favourite so far has been the F4CC90 posted by Tear. Though as I look at the names to the left, I find it difficult to distinguish between the colour of Tear's name and yours. Unless I'm mistaken, Tear's name is in F4CC90, as well, only bolded instead of regular as it was in his post?

    Perhaps you could continue to use the F4CC90, and then just up the level of yellow in the Admin name? I see several quite lovely shades in your avatar that could work; maybe try sampling some colours from those gears?
