Simple. Would you like color-coded names back on the forum?
On one hand the forums have a more consistent look now but on the other hand i always found it useful to quickly recognize who's posting what.
Yummylee is blue, Claude is red, Animasta is white all the raging metacritics users flooding a review in anger are green etc.
And if they do bring it back maybe make it so that new accounts are neutral by default. No more Xbox 360 support conspiracy!
