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 ;)

grey_chess 86
blue 83
red_flying 8
grey 52
red_paper 21
blue_board 5
green 26
blue_wch 7
grey_wch 12

blue_plain 17
red_cubic 2

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 ok now. I tried several logins and the eiffel tower pic is fine again everytime. So, it had nothing to do with RANDOM :)

Don Groves    (2008-08-13 05:32:01)

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.

Random design

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'. ;)

Very cool

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 ;-)
