I apologize if such a thread has been started already, but I didn't see one around yet.

In spite of the recent, um, "problems" that are often seen there and considering that "The Backyard" is a bit too formal name for an informal place, I think pink ponies should stay. Not to mention that it's hillarious to first-time visitors. (at least I thought it was funny ;))

What are your opinions?

Yes, it should stay.

I have to protest

Who else shall stand in defence of the Pink Ponies?

Pink Ponies now is the time to stand and be counted. This travesty cannot and must not defame the good name of Pink Ponies every where .

I say no , no I say to this dreadfull assault on such a defenceless group. I shall ask the United Nations to write a letter, that's a letter , so beware.

A letter? That is the biggest reaction the UN has made in a long time...

I love pink ponies, I mean purple unicorns are much better but pink ponies are so much easier to find.

I do not think they should be properly called 'ponies'. Aren't they more of the genus 'Zebra'? Yes, I admit that the stripes might be a little hard to see, being orange on pInK.

Glad to know that I'm not the only one to remember Slashdot's April fool's joke.

It's cute, keep it.

<thinking>

I wonder if we could get Hello Kitty to be one of the mods?

Still there today! ^_^

And for some reason today text is pink?! I love it! Now for a black background and i'll be in heaven! ^_-

Thank you ubuntu staff!
Keep the pink text!!!

Oh, I think I get it now - just pink text in Pink ponies forum. >:-(

*Stamps feet*
I was sooooo happy.

Oh well, at least I still get my pink when I'm there!
Matches my black and luminous pink desktop!

PiNk PoNiEs or whatever are fine with me. But please please not the text color. Please. Pretty please with sugar on it. Pink sugar.

I can scarcely read pink text on white background. I can not really read it when highlighted, either.

Mehashi

But when you highlight it goes Black with white text!?
I use 2048*1536 and pink on white is perfectly clear!

Maybe I'm biased!! ^_-

Here you go! I think?! Never uploaded picture on forum before! Tried to get my Gir in there too! Used to have my avatar as background...

Yeah definately just pink text on pink ponies! Yay for me!
^_^

And hopefully the name and colour will make it harder to get angry or take yourself too seriously so hopefully less conflicts!

*Edit* Need to zoom in for some reason on my firefox to see the proper size.

That does look cool. I tend to use sea colors with black for my Nightwish themes.

You are often better off not being able to read it.

(And you will see my recent posts are not pink)

You are very gracious towards the elderly, thank you.

For those that don't know, here's where the pink ponies thing all started:

Edit:

And though I don't have time to look for it right now, I think Matthew posted the actual Slashdot pages somewhere else on the forums.

Name is fine, I would just prefer darker color - bright pink on white is little too tiring to read.

Absolutely! It's a little fun, without making the forums any less serious overall.

pInK pOnIeS for the win.

forever.

pink on black, that is all needs be done.

It makes the Backyard a MUCH more bearable place to post!

It's cute, funny, and accurate at the same time. Leave the name as it is. :)

April 3rd, 2008, 11:20 PM
Love the idea but the text should be a little darker. The pink is so bright it hurts my eyes.

Maybe this one?

You got pink outside of pink ponies!
If I were the kind of person that liked that kinda thing(^_-) how would I do that? I only remember html but says I cant use it a bottom of the page! >_<

Is it like this?
^_^

Yay! I previewed post and it quite evidently is html that works, how bizzare?!

Of course they do. Linux runs on everything these days. I run Linux on my toaster. :shock:

I think it should stay but maybe a few choices by account of the colours of this forum? It could then have a few different colour themes, different from all the other forum and make those who have a hard time reading it have an easier time.
