    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    POLL: Membership this affects you!

    Welcome to a rare opportunity to have a voice in your future oppression

    I'm sure most of you are familiar with the staff opinion on careless use of color tags. That isn't why you are gathered here today. Most of the reckless color use and in fact most colored text in general that hasn't been from a staff member in recent history appears to have been largely accidental. My interests are more basic. Do you actually use color tags in your posting? The poll attached to this is data gathering for administrative staff and my question (in added detail) is:

    Have you deliberately used colored text in the last six months and/or do you expect to in the next six months?

    I will be leaving the thread active for commentary but I want actual numbers in this case as much if not more than comments so please use the poll. As the results may affect your usergroup permissions, not answering doesn't help you any.

    NOTE TO STAFF: I'm aware that you use color tags and why, please DO NOT answer this poll. It has no real bearing on you and you may skew the numbers.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    Re: POLL: Membership this affects you!

    Since some of the users of the forum use different themes, it can be hard for them to see one colour or another. So I try to refrain from using colours.

    I had to in my signature but that was only because of the black background. I'm not sure I like the black background here, it's a little gloomy.
    Once a man, like the sea I raged;
    Once a woman, like the earth I gave;
    And there is in fact more earth than sea.

    Another small grumble. I notice some contributors are using very long / large signatures, so even a short post is taking up a third of the page, this can mean there are only 2 or 3 posts to a page which makes threads quite difficult to follow.

    There are a number of different backgrounds available for PF. If you don't like the black one, then you can change it by scrolling right down to the bottom of the page and using the drop down box in the lower left hand corner (between the bookmarks and the credits right at the bottom).

    Actually part of the problem is the large gap between the text post and signature.

    In most of the forums I visit there are up to 15 posts per page which makes the discussion much easier to follow.

    OK, thanks, that's better. It was like being in a moody teenagers bedroom.

    So do I have to reset this every time I log on?

    I don't think so. But both Torey and I use the default 'Mint' theme so I can't be 100% sure. Try it and see.

    It defaults to the gloomy black each time I log on. Oh well.
