oooh andy just pwned

I don't hate the current design, but a little bit of color is accepted. As I said before, Vanilla Cola FTW!

Nah-ah-ah! You said changing those colors to "blue or anything else" was bad.

Way I see it:

dark blue = ocean, sky, soothing = good

light blue is too bright

yellow is also too bright

so is orange

and green

red stands out way too much

Pink is an absolute no-no.

Brown looks like....you know....

All-black is too dark, and is mostly for video game sites.


Does anyone like any of the styles I just linked to? We shouldn't choose some other color just for the sake of not choosing blue.

I like the light blue and the green one, but I don't think either of those are for us . That green one is cool, but would it work for a writing site? I doubt it.

the only good ones on that list are green and red in my opinion, but I dunno, I'm not a fan of blue, thats why I liked that vanilla cola one.

I say we SHOULD pick a color different than blue for the sake of it because it would make us unique ((not the fact that we wouldn't be blue, but the fact that we do it for no reason))

I think I would like the black one if we had color in our logos and stuff. But then again, there are some people that find black depressing. -glares at world-

Orange and green are both good, but green is better than orange. I don't know if they'd work for YWO, but who knows ...?

Well, don't argue with me about it. Black is my second-favorite color, and favorite colors don't even mean anything to me, so -- I shouldn't have brought that up.

But black is awesome. Yeah. There's a reason cruori are black, and it's not because they want to camouflage with darkness.
