Another thing. Don't post anything there that is something you want to keep alive. When the next version of the software comes out this will most likely be outright deleted. So no post you want to save or return to. This of this as a wall covered in graffiti it could be repainted at any time.

I don't mean to ruffle any feathers here , but I think the background color is perfect not because I like yellow because I don't . I like it because in the evening when I log on I have been known to drift into a short nap. waking up and trying to figure where I am at is no problem just look at that color and I know I am at the RRT. So when the old puter gives yellow back ground color .
be happy and think of it as lemons and make lemon aid Razz Razz Razz

Could we get the color in sort of a mauve and purple paisley motif?

Or Fuchsia?

Ok, one last comment on color schemes.

It was posted that the forum was looking for things that would bring in more posts/posters and get more folks to hang around.

I sure would hate see someone shooting themselves in the foot for the sole purpose of artistic expression or personal preference.

Now, there are some pretty bigtime business's on the net trying to appeal to the largest audience possible with their websites and I'm sure they have invested tons of money and expertise into studing the effects of color schemes that would provide for the most pleasant and enticing environments for the widest possible audience.

Possibly if y'all would checkout:

http://amazon.com
http://bestbuy.com
http://circuitcity.com
http://jcpenny.com
http://jcwhitney.com
http://sears.com
http://summitracing.com
http://walmart.com

or:

http://abcnews.com
http://cnn.com
http://cnet.com
http://eweek.com
http://foxnews.com
http://zdnet.com

or:

http://yahoo.com
http://google.com

Just to consider what color schemes they might have in common.

On the color of the background, we are looking at modifying it. Actually, though you may not remember it, the members picked this color many years ago when we set this up. And we have done some research, this color is restful, gives good contrast for reading, and is distinctive.

Yes, I remember the original color discussion.

I also remember when yellow/green fire engines were found to be more visible than red.

If this is supposed to be the color of Milners coupe, then my monitor needs some color adjustment. Looks more like a chinese mustard color to me. Not bright like american mustard, but slightly tan/yellow.

What color is it supposed to be?

Don't like the back ground color Sad I would suggest a nice solft Blue.... I think that would be more relaxing and softer on the eyes. Shocked Sunflower Yellow (?) doesn't look good on my 'puter Crying or Very sad I don't like the back ground color[/u]

well i wouldnt let me log in

It isn't quite like starting all over again. I look at it more like remodeling your house or redoing your rod. Everything is basically the same but things look and work better.
Ya thats what Bill Gates always says.. Im still kinda pissed that they finally made windows explorer with tabs like netscape and I cant get a download.
Some thing about verification.. Its all a money deal aint it
