    I'm Jewish, so I wouldn't apply an Easter template this early. The color scheme was recommended by The Admin Zone, a message board for message board administrators (very meta, I know), where experiments found that more posting activity took place using it than other color combinations. Considering how well it worked here in its first day, the change will be permanent, and eventually applied to all the forums.

    They are going to probably go to the next logical holiday - memorial day. Gray it is!!!

    Alright. This is going to sound harsh, but take a long look at the date of Dan's post in this thread.....wait for it....got it? Good.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The color change was part of an April Fools Day joke!

    Indeed, Maister.

    Not that my opinion was solicited, or is even worth anything, but I liked the pink. Then again, I have a bit of a bias.....

    I think it's like their Thanksgiving. Canadian April Fools Day is June 1st, I believe. Half an hour later in Newfoundland.
