Would coloring only the category on the paperdoll screen (e.g. "
Starfleet Engineering Bridge Officer
"), as it is now, suffice?
Agreed: this really looks bad. Besides, we are (well, most of us) big boys and girls and, if we really want to go and look at the BOff qualities, we can do so right now. If this is so others can see the BOff qualities as a sort of vanity thing, it's even worse - 'couldn't care less if another player is impressed by my away team members, ship, title, or what-have you.
It is also inconsistent: two of my active BOffs are actually "rare" quality, but one is shown purple with this change and the other isn't.
This is an unnecessary and, in my opinion, very undesirable visual - there could seriously have already been a lot more time invested in fixing extant bugs in the New Romulus patrols and other missions than doing something like this.
In short, some good stuff in here so far, but with certain things, I'd say leave well enough alone.
(...actually active since November 2010, which may one day be important to archaeologists, but not to anyone else...)
