    Did something happen that gave us all pretty name colors? Is this like what happened with my urine?

    I need answers! :blobowo

    I don't drink, so it's highly illegal for me to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. I will have to keep this secret from the authorities.

    They seem to have cycled through a few different greenish shades. Are they trying to find one that looks good on every skin?

    I don't disagree with you. I've been trying to get mods swapped to red anyway. Regardless, I've got no say in the matter, as with most things.

    I thought it was because of my phone, because I usually never use this site on there. It looks nice.

    i picked the last green we've settled on, but rinoa did most of the work

    there were some issues with perms, but she worked hard and long to get this for members

    and she has been on mobile today, which kinda sucks for editing stuff

    we were going to go with a much lighter green which made sense for saint patrick's

    but it couldn't really be read on orange skin -- way too bright... =/

    i like the current one though tbh

    it works (especially in legibility) imo

    plus like i said others were too bright on lighter skins like orange

    and it couldn't be same green as mods

    ah well

    can't always have everyone happy i suppose

    #22ea22 looks great on the dark skin and is kinda bright but still perfectly readable on the orange skin





    and 1000% more irish which is the whole point

    easier to read when you post one zoomed like that tbf

    but granted that green you're posting is at least more readable than earlier light ones we tried

    the valentines event literally had a purple that was so close to super mod purple that broker fooled a dozen people into thinking she was an smod
    is this an issue now cause of it?
    cause everyone will have the same colour, no one will get tricked the same way

    i think that's a fair point, but the idea was that the green mod color is just for mods and also to still make it easier to distinguish section mod and regular member at a glance

    and keeping the usernames as different greens kinda maintains that, so i see how this makes sense from that angle at least

    though tbh i personally wouldn't mind same green as mods for regular members -- considering it's a temporary thing

    or gin's suggestion i think is better than other lighter greens we tried, but i don't have the perms to try that... sry =/
