    Forums on crack?

    It was quite odd, I say. When going to the URL to reach these forums, I happened upon the main Web Developer website—which I thought was quite odd. Well, I clicked on the “Forums” link, and logged in, and I almost exclaimed outloud when I was taken to a page I have not seen before. I was then browsing in the CSS forum, and there happened a Database error, which puzzled me even further than before. And now, I post this thread, asking, am I the only one who sees something different here...?

    There appears to be a maroon background, with all the links being that particular color. And there seems to be a group of links at the top that have’t been there before.
    Thousand different paths
    So many sterile ends
    I chose the Devil's path

    Never shall the sun kiss my face
    And caress me with it's burning light
    For I dwell in the shadows
    And sleep side by side with death

    It's not just you, it's me aswell. For a while there was a database error. What's happened?

    pull_out("hair", $neil);
    $neil=bald;}
    else{echo("What do you want?");}

    I haven’t a clue, but it appears the forum is slowly morphing into something else. Now more things have been taken over by the maroon color. Quite odd, quite odd.

    Indeed! Those Area 51 chaps can’t possibly keep all that stuff under wraps forever.

    Yes! It is coming over us - must be the maroons.

    If my history lessons have not gone completely lost I would assume, they live on a planet called Jamaica somewhere in remote mountanuous areas (there is a rumour, they are descendants of runaway slaves)...

    Let's hope, they are not too harmful

    Quite right, quite right!

    I fear it’s too late for that; they have already bombarded us with this ugly maroon color! Whatever shall we do?!

    well, I always look to zen for inspiration, but I was thinking lighter gray on the dark gray of the alternating table cells, and perahps rather than maroon something a little lighter (like this) Its not much, but I've used it before, and its much easier on the eye

    Sinced the new color is like the one I used on a old layout and it's used on a site for one of my favorite artist, I like the color, but the colors HAVE to match. A nice lite creme color would be nice.

    Here's the artist's site in question. You can look at the forums to see what colors they used.

    EDIT. The yellow that's use in the news images at the upper left is really nice, so you could use that in places too.

    good point, I have always been a big fan of Rockstar yellow, and it might go well with the site. (note that rockstar yellow isn't actually a color, i just call it that because it looks like the yellow from the Rockstar logo (think grand theft auto))
