I like to use a lot of colors while Storying. As much as I can, actually. Color dirt with `q, anything relating to rainbows with `*`Q`y`g`L`v`V, etc, etc.

A while back I contemplated the thought of... "What if someone using Experimental skin sees these colors differently?"

So I tested some of it, blah blah blah, and made these guys with the Writing Tool:




It's interesting that Default and Experimental have different line lengths.
(Default has 1 pixel in between each line. Experimental has none.)
(Also, note to self: If you're gonna do this again, use a fixed width font. Jeez.)

Anyways... This got me to thinking further.
I was able to switch the skin through cookie stuff, I assume. Switching in game then opening the tool in the same browser.
But... perhaps there should be an ability to change the skin from that page?
Or, even better, a side by side comparison of skins. I think that'd be epic.
Another idea someone suggested is a link to the tool somewhere on the Island. Perhaps on that header with all the social links?
And, finally, one last thing I'd like to see added to the Writing Tool is `c, `>, and `<. I like those ones. Playing with them is fun.

And, just for posterity;
The Writing Tool: http://www.improbableisland.com/writingtool.php

(You all should totally add any ideas you have here.)

I definitely second having the tool more accessible as well as letting us test skins.

In addition, it might be an idea to have a list of the character limits and what can & can't be used for things like mementos, places, monsters and etc. You could have all the info in one spot so you don't have to dig it up anytime you want to work on something you can't quite remember the rules for.
