Recommended Posts

It's not on the Project's website yet, but Clay and the Project had a Twitter exchange about this.  It's October 21 and 22 in Charlotte, NC.

merrieeee, attaching a picture is super easy.  Just drag the picture to the area at the bottom of the post that says "Drag files here to attach."  Easy peasy.

BWAH!  Meg Kinnard, an Associated Press political reporter based in South Carolina, just retweeted Clay's tweet with this comment:

Have we blinded everyone?  jmh and I were talking about trying to match themes (called skins here) with the banners I create.  If it's too much, just let us know!

I actually kind of like it.  It's bright and cheery!

Scan (actually photos!) of the People magazine special on Idol.

A quick look through the available board skins was pretty meh, and most aren't free anymore, or could be loaded with malware.  But, this new IPS version has a place on the admin side where you can change colors without changing skins.  Every element of this board has its own color setting, and there are dozens--the hardest part is figuring out which is which as the nomenclatures are not particularly useful.  It's pretty irresistible to play with but I promise we won't always be quite this extreme......although I haven't tried any shades of purple yet.........

 

ETA: Hee!!  And ldyj likes it!!!!!!!

Wow, what a change. It's very cute, although white sometimes irritates my eyes. It looks a little creamy though so I'm sure it's fine.

Thanks for all the hard work.

Fear, I wouldn't mind dimming it a little more myself, but the white (ish?) background is the one thing that seems impervious to change.  I even dug into the back of the back looking.  Boards often have an alternating pattern of post background colors as well, don't they?

The white IS a bit bright, but I like the cheeriness of the yellow and orange.

I'm going to miss "Downton Abbey."  Great finale.

I think the burnt orange colour is an homage to the University of Texas!

Ok so I noticed that I have a reputation of 166. Is that a good or bad thing?

Downton I will miss you!

UPS Customer Support is still trying.  I think that's for naught at this point.

I could not resist digging into the depths again to find a solution to the bright white.  Is this dim enough or should I go a shade darker?

I might go a shade darker...but I like the change with the yellow.
