from what i remember, there is, or was, a plugin called conversation badges somewhere in the purple plugin pack, which essentially put a little icon representing the protocol at the top of the window. i might be mistaken regarding the name, it has been a while since i used it.

But I use multiple accounts, and on each account I tend to have a different text colour. With Pidgin, this means I have to reset my colour each time a new chat window opens, going through the wheel and finding it again. Is there any way (or maybe a plugin?) that I can have a colour for each account individually?
