I really like the new Messages app, so I decided to port its theme to Adium.
The theme shows usernames and time stamps. iMessages has only two colors at the moment, but it will notify users of all future updates that will bring more color options.

    I LOVE this! I'd love to have the option for the incoming messages to be in a random bubble color.

    Very good theme! But I can't change a font size...

    Love this! But same as belirafor, wish I could up the font size.

    I think showing the name on hover is unnecessary as well.

    Are these things I could tweak on my own?

    Okay so I got it to a pretty good place. Screenshot:

    Removed status messages (connected/disconnected etc.), removed username on hover, and removed font size restriction.

    Here's my updated custom message style file if you want to download/install:
    bobjr, feel free to implement these as the standard for v1.3

    List of CSS changes for those that are tech savvy:
    commented out div.item.message:hover .name{} entirely
    display:none !important; on div.status_message{}
    font-size: 12px; in body {}

    Go to ~/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Message Styles

    Right click on iMessages.AdiumMessageStyle and choose Show Package Contents

    Continue to... Contents/Resources/main.css

    Open main.css and remove the line (which is in the 'body' css section):
    font-size: 12px;

    Save file and restart adium, you should be able to change font size in the Preferences now.

    Actually just download Warren's version above, status messages are useless!
