    I am a big fan of the pipedot color scheme :) Pastel colors are much easier on the eye.

    User-selectable theming is in the next major slashcode release (for early June). If you are good with CSS, drop me a line, and I'll help you get started with retheming our CSS for a "lighter" pallet.

      I'm looking forward to it. For me, the red has worn thin, I can't really say why, it's just a feeling that's developed over the last few weeks.

        Angry Jesus doesn't like the color of blood?

      I like the colors on both sites (when I have 'em turned on -- usually I disable site colors since white backgrounds hurt my eyes). But letting the user configure that should reduce the bitching about it.

      Good to hear :) I'll help out with the "pastel" theme if you like, I know CSS fairly well (Not an expert but can find anything out I don't know). I'll drop you a PM for further details

        I missed your ping on IRC; I've been dealing with laptop issues all week (long story), and I've been somewhat hit or miss to reach. Try reaching paulej72 or mrcoolbp on IRC as I'm going to be out for the next few days.

    Some pastel colors are easier on the eye. I used to tell my foreign* girlfriend that she looked like a walking candy necklace in her native dress.

    That being said, I second your statement about Pipedot's color scheme being way more pleasing to the eye. And Pipedot's wicked-cool logo...man, if that's another thing Pipedot got right, it was having a contest for its readership to submit their own designs.

    However, both Pipedot and SN are all about the discussions -- and for those, speaking from a naïve user's perspective, SN wins hands-down.

        I was left wondering what words he would have otherwise used to specify her nationality. Unless he calls her a "ching chong curry munching sheep fucking nigger" I can't imagine too many ways you could describe nationalities in such a way that it would be considered racist hate speech, but that's just me.

          Indian is unfortunately ambiguous when used in the United States and can be taken that way.

            It used to mean Native Americans....

            Nowadays it is interchangeable with the expression 'H-1B'....
