I'm so surprised to see that only 9 players use the RANDOM design (see in Preferences) which is my favourite by far... You should try it, more fun for the eye ;)
red (default) 3151

ok i'll be the 10th
the title says it all!

RANDOM design prob: eiffel pic ..
I set design to random. The eiffel tower picture has then become so high-contrast and high-hue that at first sight it looks like 3 dots or so on a black background.[i have this light grey background on this login...]
Normajean Yates (2008-08-13 03:57:26)
still eiffel tower picprob with re-login
I logged out and logged in - this time the backgound is that faded orangeish one - but the eiffel tower picture is still screwed up just like before...
Normajean Yates (2008-08-13 04:03:30)
IT IS OKAY NOW!
It is ok now. I tried several logins and the eiffel tower pic is fine again everytime. So, it had nothing to do with RANDOM :)

Thibault -- It's hard enough with everything the same each time I log on!
On the other hand, maybe a few random moves would improve my game ;-)
Normajean Yates (2008-08-13 11:39:09)
just try it Don..
I didn't try it before because i thought it would be distracting. But it isnt, surprisingly - the colours and texture are cool (as in cool and warm colours..) - soothing.
Thibault de Vassal (2008-08-13 11:41:25)
Would the design (background color & board color) influence your moves ? :) So red could make us aggressive... Maybe I'll change the design by default to the random one..
Normajean Yates (2008-08-13 13:08:12)
the faded red is not agressive enough..
but the other crimsonish red is agressive. I am psychiatrically advised to avoid crimson-red bedsheets etc - so if crimsonish-red comes I'll logout and login again... I had in fact put it there first but it disturbed me --- the blood responses on my Rorschach tests have been huge in number always - even one blood-response on Rorschach is supposed to be 'abnormal'. ;)

I joined the random design club - its awesome as they say in Hollywood. I like the chess player images in the wall paper.
Normajean Yates (2008-08-13 19:58:40)
Welcome to the RANDOM login club, Andrew!
Don Groves (2008-08-14 00:16:07)
just try it...
OK, I'll give it a try.
Don Groves (2008-08-14 00:17:39)
I set my site design to random and logged in again, but it still looks like it always did...
Don Groves (2008-08-14 00:26:04)
Now it works -- I may like this ;-)

Statistics : Designs
Here are the real statistics for the number of players by design :
(I had forgotten some players in the previous ones) :
red (default) 3485
Normajean Yates (2008-08-15 09:53:11)
so Don Groves finally goes random;)
Some would say, another one bits the dust ;) [as in: and another one gone and another one gone -- Freddie Mercury]
