Brian, Thank you so much for all your efforts. I know there have been many wanting to see a site redesign for a long time, and you've gone above and beyond already. I'm glad, too, to see offers from knowledgeable folks to step up and help out. We are not the real world here, and I know the folks behind the scenes have real lives, too. Just know that your efforts are applauded. I can barely get my new "out of the box" laptop running like I want, so I really have an appreciation for your work.

And thanks for removing those troublesome apostrophes. Sometimes being grammatically correct is just a heap of trouble, we've learned! wink

Why do we need to enter a Security Code during log in?

The reason for the code is because "robots", or computers running brute force scripts trying to gain access, can't read the code. It's one more tool to keep hackers at bay.

Excellent Job with the new redesign on the website. Just one question. Why is the page predominantly blue when the WGA colors have always been green? It kind of clashes with the LOGO.

We had a vote but you were not here. wink

Alternative reason 1: Website committee is 70% color blind.

Alternative reason 2: It's only blue this year. Next year it will be pink to balance out the equation of life.

Alternative reason 3: Have you seen our event shirts? It's an integral part of our advertising campaign -- clashing colors.

Alternative reason 4: It's part of the current boards top secret plan to get everyone to hate the current logo again so it can be changed again next year.

Alternative reason 5: It was the default install color theme. We were told that if we changed it that we were opening ourselves up for more evil robot hacker activity.

Alternative reason 6: Blue is the new black. Really it is, I checked.

Alternative reason 7: Blue is a calming, cool, relaxing color. That way everyone's visits to the thread stealers forum is like a trip to the spa.

Alternative reason 8: Zuma said he liked it. Oh wait, he's color blind too. Nevermind.

Alternative reason 9: We studied all of the avatars used over the past 9 months and figured out blue was the best complimentary color. Hue was a little more challenging so we went with the first choice in the list.

Alternative reason 10: Heads, Blue. Tails, Green. It was Tails. Best 2 out of 3, Heads came out on top.

I think I'll stop at 10...

Not that I wasn't here it was the fact I was inadvertently blocked from the site. The rest of the internet worked for me though. Anyhoo thanks for the informative answer it explains a lot. wink
