Pidgin: pp255: control of contact text color/sound

ok, on my system, when I use IM, the contact is in bright red and very distinctive.

When I am in a conference with as many as 250 other contacts everthing just becomes a blur. I need to single out a couple contacts and assign "distinctive" color to their date/name so I can very easily spot them. I have to watch other displays on my system and often miss them. *I have two 28" monitors and you can imagine .. I look approx 3' away from Pidgin at times* ...... also I have a "ding" tone turned on when anyone sends a message through. I'd like to be able to assign a unique tone for the contacts.

Short version: Can I have a plug-in that will allow custom highlighting a contacts name and make a distinctive sound when they send a message. Would be real nice to be able to have a table of, oh, say maybe 10 or so that could be defined. (I guess my short version wasn't so short after all.)

This is an issue for Pidgin

This is an issue for Pidgin itself, not PP, perhaps you'll get better results asking at
