St. Patrick's Day Green....

Thanks Aldie... I kinda like it... nice if we could select our color schemes from time to time.

Hehe, I did NOT even make the St Patrick's Day connection until you mentioned it. I just thought it was a new look.

I've already got an Irish username.... just call me Man O'Warplayer!

I didn't make the connection either Scott. Thanks for clearing that up for me Bob, now it all makes sense!

My first reaction was, "what the f....?" - now I get it.

Thank goodness it's only for one day, cos the colours are a bit insipid... (Sorry!)

I can't wait to see what you come up with for July 4th, though.

Okay, that was weird, it was as if every time I clicked to a new page on BGG, more of it would be green...just gradually...

Yeah, mine too... Then I looked at the date and all was well... Green isn't my favorite color, but I am all for celebrating St. Paddy's Day!

Maybe our profile icons can be little leprechauns... theme'd profile icons, wee! Course I guess around thanksgiving a little turkey might not go over well with others.. .or a santa.. or.. oh, nevermind.

Blarney, blarney, blarney. And here I was worried some virus had infected me computer! Turns out it's just the leprechauns of joy spreading their magical color all about. Now, I'm off to hide me Geek Gold! Shenanigans!

I think Chad's (chaddyboy_2000) themed avatars must have rubbed off on Aldie laugh

For me, it's as if BGG has ascended into the Googlesphere, thanks to the theming....

Maybe some cartoonists (that includes me, if I get off my lazy butt), can make some themed mascots... you know, like the blond-haired badly-dressed white man with the gameboard in the upper left-hand corner of the page.... we could dress him up like the Lucky Charms spokesman.

Yep - it's green. But I think y'all can tolerate it for one day right?

Lovin' it Aldie, I'm lovin' it. (I now need to pay McDonalds some money, because they trademarked "I'm lovin' it"... in English, as well as lousy translations in several languages).

Is there anyway to let us choose this again? I've seen some sites where because of the CSS (?) you could choose the colors yourself.... possible?

Great stuff, Aldie!

Any chance you could keep it a bit longer, while Survivor Werewolf is running? Team Green has lots of bragging rights right now

One thing I notice your CSS change missed is the font colour for spoiler text - it's still that grey-blue colour, not the pale green.

The green shocked me more than the new rating system laugh

StPatrick's Day. I heard of it. But I don't know what it is. Anyone?

But green is cool. O, should I mentioned that I am a Warhammer Orc -player?

Ah, so you've made BGG impossible to read for the day so we will all go to the pub and drink Guinness instead. Interesting strategy...

Impossible to read? Surely you are exaggerating!

I think it is nice and festive. Google also has a very pretty logo for the day.

Of course I forgot to wear green again... but I'd like to see someone try to pinch me

One of the benefits of having kids is that I knew immediately why the site was green. They all put their green pj's on last night so I couldn't pinch them in the morning.

Minor bug...

I noticed that spoilers are light grey on light green instead of light green on light green.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
SECRET STUFF!

Not too noticeable, but maybe annoying if you didn't want something spoiled.
