    Did the skins just change? In between opening a reply to post window and posting, just now in GNG, the background of the site turned purple, with the buttons and Sponsor/Advert block remaining the pumpkin-peach color, and the rest of the window area is shades of gray?

    Maybe I just need more sleep...........

    Maybe the new scheme was put up by someone who should NOT be able to?

    Fugly, that's the word, fugly. Please bring back the old color scheme, I'll even send you some money to do it.

    I'd like to see a nice black background, something easier on the eyes. It'd make things easier to read.

    Glocks are black, so why not a black Glocktalk?^c

    I don't know. The first I saw this new color scheme I didn't care for it but I think it's beginning to catch on. Only problem I see it the color scheme is allot like one of the old "X" Brand shooting boards.

    See, the thing is, it looks like it's not done yet.

    Normally, a site admin will make changes in a test environment, and completely modify all elements to match a new scheme. This looks like only the background colors were changed, and the logo up top was changed. but the buttons, table backgrounds etc. are still the old color.

    If it is Eric making these changes, then I have to tell you it's a strange configuration management practice.

    If it's not Eric, and is one of the other admins 'experimenting' then it makes more sense, but it's still a strange CM practice.

    I've never known of a professionally run site like GT being changed on-the-fly. Too much chance for error.

    That said, I like the lavender colors. They are pleasing to the eye. The colors don't matter much to me either way, though.

    Seems to blend quite well with the MSN screen! I like it, but I've only been viewing GT for a few months and haven't had the original burned into my memory!:)

    Yeah, I like the new scheme. However, the advert space being brown sticks out abit, and not really in a good wa.

    I have hit my head three times on a nearby wall and now see purple dots.

    Is this phenomena related to GT backround colors.


    Uhhhh. I don't feel so good.
