April fools joke

I'm not in the habit of criticising Plus net's web pages, but I assume todays colour scheme of the community opening page is such a joke?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: April fools joke

What makes you think that? Don't you like the scheme - its been built up based on feedback from the community.
There's a blog post on the homepage explaining the change...

I like the new colour scheme, it matches my shirt.
I'll be wearing charcoal grey tomorrow.

Well, I have to be 'onest and say no! if you're trying to get in touch with your feminine sides then it will be a success. But Liii....lac ughh! (at least that's what it looks like on my screen) I'ts the colour you used not the overall design.

Sorry, if thats not an April fool joke, I will not be able to read, Home, Blogs or Polls, it offends my eyes, and definitely my wife who has a chromatics disorder and has to wear special coloured glasses to watch TV

Yup, that stripey background is very distracting, or worse.

On the contrary, we wanted to remove it before midday but not too early, also with the special visit this afternoon we didn't want to forget too Cheesy

Re: April fools joke

I notice the logon page has been changed back to the earlier colour.
