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...
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

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