No, it's not your eyesight :)

Ballet Talk and Ballet Talk for Dancers are confused for one another quite often, and this has caused confusion and churn for our Moderation team.

We're tweaking the appearance of Ballet Talk to make it more distinguishable from Ballet Talk for Dancers. We're trying to avoid the usual suspects: blinding colors, drastic changes, and colors that are difficult to distinguish for people who are color blind.

Things may shift around as we test how effective the changes are.

Oooh...Helene, no wonder I'm suddenly seeing more yellow, as a few seconds ago...

I'm tweaking it to see what happens.

Not the look I was going for :)

I'm afraid I'm limited to 216 HTML colors, and I'm looking for one more that will make the home page distinctive. Unforunately, there's white, and there's bright, and it's just a matter of degree of bright.

That is a good idea, to make the two boards optically a bit different to each other.

Well, I know you are not looking for opinions, but I quite like the way it is now - at 10:22 (GMT+1). :)

But, I will happily go with whatever you choose, I am sure.

Thank you :)

I managed to find many more colors, which seem to work on IE and Firefox, at least for the PC, and found some paler versions of the yellow and green.

Interesting, but to my eye and my monitor a bit jarring. Can we expect some other theme and variations?

I'll take whatever colour you give me, Helene, but given that BT4D's median age is probably a whole lot lower than BT, they may be more receptive to change...

Yes! They're also younger than we are (as a board age). I think they'd look terrific in pink! :huh:

I can hear the squeals of delight! :huh:

At the moment, I think WE look fine. Just afraid that the difference may be too subtle -- depending on room lighting and (for laptops) angle of the screen.

Yes, I really like it. :huh:

I now find the BT4D just a wee-bit too "wintery", in comparison. (or it could just be my winter-fatigue...) :huh:

I like the new yellow, I was always getting the two boards confused. Great idea!
