Josh, IMHO the new Envirolink forum signs on each post
look like Standard Oil gas signs

perhaps they could be in pink and purple or aqua and navy
or lemon and gold

Jesus, I think the conspiracy is against me. I spent a good part of the night last night putting them together. The color scheme is various shades of ORANGE in the EnviroLink logo, white/gray (blended) and blue. You REALLY think that it looks like the Standard Oil logo, which is clearly RED, WHITE and BLUE, standard patriotic colors for various nations.

Arc108... I really have to wonder how you could possibly live your life if you live even to a fraction of the standards you hold everyone else to. For someone who seems to think of him/herself as on the righteous path, you are the most judgemental person I've ever encountered.

Ok... that it is out of my system (do as I say not as I... you get the idea), I don't want anyone else to respond other than the to the topic at hand (which I am now taking to be constructive feedback on the new badges that users have).

all i'm saying Josh.. is the color pattern could be sunny uplifting
pastels... or beautiful bright ceramic colors
... etc etc

if you only want positive feedback you might say so

thank you Red for pointing out the similarity

over a dozen times when I have gone to the envirolink
on the computer this link has come up instead

I think the badge looks very nice as it is. And the only thing I think of when I see it is this forum. It's obviously not about good or bad feedback. It's about Arc finding fault in every single pointless thing there is, except maybe fruit and herself. :roll: It's unreal that she has that much time on her hands to do nothing but whine about everything everyone else is doing that has little to no effect on ANYTHING.

You did fine Josh. Maybe you should offer Arc a black chopper with whirl blades flailing and PETA Rules on the side panel. That should get the old Arcster to breathing hard. :wink:

Heh. Well, I think you did a good job and I really don't see any resemblance to the Standard Oil thing.

Maybe you could make them rainbow colors that shift to show ... oh never mind ... they look good as they are. It is taking some getting used to as it seems to register as an avatar for those posters without one to me at first glance. Once I get used to that aspect I will like them better.


But could you make mine red in stead of orange ... :lol: :lol: :lol: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

They look nice Josh. No need to change anything.
