Actually at first I thought it was a strange camoflage.  Didn't think it was cow themed until someone said so.

OK, now I get it. Suggestion: make the white in the nameplate/logo GIF transparent so it blends in whenever you are in the mood to add color to the site.

I thought it was camouflage too.  I'd rather go with the purple, especially since I and most others I know don't have anything like "Cheesefare" on our calendars.  But as long as it's not a permanent change, I won't be a killjoy and protest against this.  It does look a bit odd, though...

I hope we can go back to the old colours too, or, if everyone wants a change, try the purple thing out.  But perhaps we can play around with the size of the characters, since people seem to prefer the larger size.  I don't mind either way, I could just as easily revert to the old style.

I'll ignore the Cow 'thing' but can we have the font size down a wee bit ?

It's very big  and I'm having to do an enormooooos amount of scrolling - I've only got a 14ins screen.

Drat! I missed the cows.  It was blue when I checked in before lunch and purple after.  I always miss the good stuff.  ;D

Trust me, you didn't miss a thing! I do like the bigger font though when I type a message. It just feels a bit nicer. What do you think? Should the bigger fonts stay when we go back to normal?
