Hero of Time

I find it more disturbing that it's every few pages. You open a page, it's pink, reload, it's pink, reload again, it's normal. Reload another time, pink again. It's really frustrating.

Now if a Jackalope would be running around the screen following your cursor, that would be funny.

it is not easy to read some things around the 'pink' wall paper? or whatever. can we dispense with it?

the yellow is not any better, difficult to read through. dump it also.

like a previous member noted:: "is this an april fool thing"?

if so lets dump it, go back to b & w.

Wasn't it this exact change that marked the "beginning of the end" of the Backyard forum? I don't follow the Community Cafe discussions, so I don't know -- have people been having discussions that tend to disrupt the psychological homeostasis of some cognitively inflexible people or groups?

EDIT: OH... never mind... I just noticed it all over UbuntuForums...

Yeah, they did it last year and then The Backyard turned into OMG Pink Ponies and they never changed it back until they shut it down. Maybe this is their way of beginning the shut down process of the Cafe, too.

And in my opinion, the pink background is immensely more annoying than the white background with pink text was.

Yeah, they did it last year and then The Backyard turned into OMG Pink Ponies and they never changed it back until they shut it down. Maybe this is their way of beginning the shut down process of the Cafe, too.

And in my opinion, the pink background is immensely more annoying than the white background with pink text was.

Is it just me or did the Ubuntu Forum change its color scheme from beige & orange to hot pink? It's the first time I've logged on in two days. What gives?

Problems related to forum usability, including this one, can be found in the <you're being repressed>. It's April Fools' Day.

You can also use the <you're being repressed> function to find if the topic has already been covered.

<you're being repressed> also has an option to specify the site in the search string. So you can use a string like "<you're bing repressed> site:ubuntuforums.org", which gives these results:
