Canada Day colour scheme?
« on: July 01, 2015, 01:05:42 »
Lots of black and red.  I assume this is a Canada Day theme, but it looks more like crimson apocalypse.  I cannot even see the underline to warn of my spelling mistakes.

Egads!  I thought it was a Walking Dead or Blade theme!

I think some white to replace the black might make an improvement .... But these colours would work in late October and maybe for a day in May (if you like the bad guys).

Why does all this red make me think of chicken?

Is there a way to revert to the traditional green before my rods and cones burn out ?  It was an option offered years ago, but can't find it anymore in the profile settings.

It's a bit lighter now, though maybe no better on the eyes.

Go outside, enjoy some fireworks and things will be normal again soon. :)

Retina-scorching colours aside, the new mobile format does look better on Her Majesty's Blackberry than any previous ones.

Actually, I don't mind this colour.  It's the green that makes me go squirrely.
I'm just like the CAF, I seem to have retention issues.

I always use the Navy version.  Blue, soothing blue.   :nod:
