    We didn't have an update last week, but we hope you enjoyed all the mahem and madness we perpetrated on April Fool's day. ;) This update is rather bland, but that just goes to show you that being a mod isn't all that exciting anyway...

    Criticisms for the new board theme. Result: We hope to be changing the colors soon.

    Please. I do most of my board time at work and the new colors scream "This guy's not working!!!"

    The red is ok with me. I just find it funny that the main blue part stayed, because in the past when the main decor changes, so has that. It's been light blue, light green, beige, pink, etc...

    I think the colours are all right. Maybe a little bit darker in contrast to the purple scheme, but I think that you wil get used to it after some time.

    (I think I like farr's rough draft better ;) )
