How about instead of new auras, you made new flash/audio/art/writing related avatars, and they were unlocked on your account if you earned an award in one of those areas? Then people could choose to use that or any of the exp related avatars they'd previously earned.
Well said. I think that's a great idea. Different weapons for being an award-winning member of whatever portal... instead of messing about with the auras. Kudos to you on an excellent system think-up.

Some smart stuffYES. Oh and maybe give different mod auras to be chosen for them? Like, a mixture of Gold and Red (Mod with an evil aura) would be nice.
It does sound like some mods would prefer a choice, but since I ain't one of 'em anymore, I won't comment on that particular idea. No skin off my back.

I like the idea, but the problem I see with it is what if you get a color you don't like?
Exactly the problem. There's plenty of obsessive/compulsive people like myself here on NG (at least 50% of the statwhores, past, present, or future, I'd estimate)... and a lot of us like the colours we like, and don't like the colours we don't like.
If I couldn't have green, I'd go with blue. Gold would be my third choice (but only because it looks really good with black weapons like lv43 and 45... now that I'm into the golden weapons, there'd be no point to a gold aura, it's just too much gold... can you tell I'm more of a fan of silver, as a decorative metal, than of gold? heh).

I like your idea of aura by what kind of user you are. The only thing is you'd it would probably lead to how it used to be, people picking a colour that they want and behaving good or bad to get that aura.
Yep. Like I said on page 3, if submitting writing to the lit portal, should it be created in the future, would automatically change my green/neutral aura to a "writer's aura" of another colour, I'd just not bother submitting writing in the first place.

Would you enjoy that or be bothered by that?That would be cool. I'm not too concerned about the color of my aura so it doesn't bother me.
Well, that's fine and dandy for you, but those of us who've loved our aura colours for a decade shouldn't suffer because of openminded bastards like yourself, you damnable someone else. #;-}>

I don't think I'll like this very much. In the art, flash and audio forums you will probably see almost nothing but the same auras and even in the Wi/Ht? most of the regulars will have the same.
Also I wouldn't like it if I was forced to have the pink color that belongs to the current fabulous aura while I would rather have a red one instead.
So just leave it as it is.
Thanks for the backup, Auz. I wish Bahamut would get back in here, as he had a lot to say on Steam IM yesterday about it.
