I just installed conversation badges on Ubuntu 12.10 and it doesn't seem to affect the conversation window.

I tried restarting the client too to no avail (unless I am blind).

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?
