Yeah, my color depth is 32-bit on the PC and "millions of colors" on the Mac.

Arrrggh - I just spent far too long trying to find this 'green'!

Slight tangent, if we're talking about calibrating monitors. Mine has two settings for 'colour temperature', 9300k and 6500k. Which is the 'correct' one? I use 9300k because otherwise white looks a funny colour.

On my brightness settings, white is not really as pure white as it could be, otherwise it burns my eyes... which is probably why the dark green here looks black!

I mistook these forums for Idle Thumbs forums because of that dark green background. (I wish I knew what surureunus is in English...) That was simply the last straw. You must get rid of that horrible color. It's ugly and unnecessary.

Hmmm, today I hacked Santa Claus to pieces with my axe and ate the remains. Delicious.

Well, I guess we know that Santa isn't cream filled!

I only found out about the new forum colours today, after reading this thread. I had to refresh the site in FireFox, because it displayed the old colours.

Now I'm trying to find the option to switch of this annoying cache. We're not living in the dial-up ages anymore, gawddamnit. Why would I need a cache!?

PHP pages are never cached for me in Firefox. Since PHP often deals with dynamic content, doing so would be silly...

The content doesn't cache, of course. But the entire header does! The only change I could see was the Google ad bar, which was changed to that dark colour. The frame was still beige (or sand colour) and it also displayed the previous logo.

The green is nice, though maybe a bit heavy...

You lot are all colourblind; it's quite clearly black

And how DO you know it's green? And why is it called green? Who thought of the names for the colours and why is it that every colour name matches the colour just fine? For example: Blue does not look right if you call it Orange. I am now rambling, please hit me over the head with an over-sized wooden spoon

"What........is your favourite colour"?

"Blue.....................no...........yellow..... .....ARRRGGGGHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEE"

Well...actually the name for what we call "blue" originated from a word for "yellow".

As mentioned in the article "The Colour of Words" at World Wide Words

As for the colour "orange", that originated from the Sanskrit word for the fruit ("narangah").

Well, thank you, but that was also written in the article I linked.


I knew that it came from the fruit in some way, though.
