RPGFan has a long-standing policy of not accepting comments, constructive criticism, or anything of that nature unless chocolate chip cookies with green dough are mailed to each editor's home.

Will a mix of blue and yellow be more to your satisfaction?

...if we were painting?  If you're viewing this on a computer screen then it's using an additive color system, where green is one of the three primary colors.  If you're viewing this page on printout, then it's likely that you're using a subtractive color system, making the green a combination of yellow and cyan. 

TL;DR everything you learned about colors in primary school is wrong.

Dear god, no. The ikea/swedish colour-scheme is one of my least favorites.
I like the green :)

I think you guys should pick a random April Fool's or something where you make the site incredibly annoying to read, like with a bright yellow or pink backgrounds with light green text or something.

Oh, believe me - we've thought about it.  We came up with lots of April Fools ideas this year.  The issue is that we get more complaints from people than we get compliments when we put in the effort and do really excellent April Fools stuff.  Survey says: people don't want us to do April Fools. :(

My big screen in my living room is typically on the "PC" setting. I also typically leave my computer on RPGFan and as such, I have been coming home to this "green" staring back at me when I come through the front door for years now.

It is comforting.

I don't know how easily I would adjust to a new color...

As an aside, I will say that I recall when I first stumbled across RPGFan many moons ago, I was horribly turned off by the forum color scheme initially. Now I feel its appropriate for our community. Something about it translates "substance over aesthetic" in my eyes now.... like a well aged 16-bit RPG... Ok, thats enough. I have officially thought too hard and analytically about our color scheme...

Years ago, we did have a bright pink RPGFan for April Fool's Day.

I think RPGfans colour is important as its identity as a whole. It's not always about style. Familiarity and expectation are important to humans in general. On a smaller scale, I admit the reason I've had the same forum avatar here ever since I joined is to play on that human desire, and have people feel familiarity with me.

Post by: Dice on October 10, 2013, 11:02:24 PM
I'm happy with recent discussions.  Carry on good Forum-ers!!!

And yeah I love the hell out of April Fools.

Dear RPGFan Entity,
Keep it green

The green theme of the website is what make it stands apart of other websites and succeeds well to give a fantasy feeling. I feel good coming here, it's like being in an elfin forest in a RPG,  I hope the theme won't become stern in the future.

Tried to click on the N64 code center. Could really use some sweet cheatz for Banjo Kazooie. Was disappointed. :(

Also would like to hear this "BG Music" the page speaks of.

And after all that, we come together and celebrate with the ONLY good cover of a Queen song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vKX1WaelfY8

Post by: Tooker on April 25, 2014, 10:32:04 PM
I've put Bohemian Rhapsody on the top of my "favorite songs ever" list more than once, and I also enjoy Bohemian Polka (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QZsN3S0WJ_o)... but I'm a pretty die-hard fan of Weird Al, so I recognize that my opinion may not be the norm.

But in terms of good Queen covers, I believe the King's Singers' cover of Seaside Rendezvous (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sz9GyGzfihM) is pretty good, too.  (It's the song I use to get other songs out of my head, because it's complex and has a clear ending.)

Since apparently Dice is going to want me to post in this topic annually (literally, my last post here was Feb. 17, 2014), I'll share another "what if". Behold what may have been in 2006, had a sponsorship deal actually worked out:
