I'm not a racist, but...

Why the heck does everyone write in black font? I mean, you expect me to trawl through these boards expecting to find a medley of different viewpoints but all I see is BLACK!Liek OMG change the colour!

It's not pink, it is light-ish red.

Everyone writes in black because the background is white/gray, and opposite colors compliment one another. Also, because it's the default color.

Well, just because I am me, here are the actual 100% opposites:



To type in those colors:

Text
Code: [Select]
[color=#1E1E1E]Text[/color]
and

Text
Code: [Select]
[color=#0F0F0F]Text[/color]
The top is the opposite of the grayer color.

Edit: Imagine that, you can hardly tell the difference.

Eh? What's this?

That would be the negative image of this:

Our actual forum background colors.

Edit: Put it in quotes, so you can see both colors.

I acknowledged that the background wasn't exactly white ;) Still, the background is more white than it is black, so the opposite is a black. It doesn't have to be a precise opposite, and often times a precise opposite won't look as good as a shade that is almost opposite. Although, I think this is more applicable to the color wheel, than to shades of gray. A solid black is simply the most distinguishable foreground shade on a monochromatic background that is 50% gray or lighter.

You're not a Racist, He's not a Nazi, What other surprises will this fourm show me today?  ::)
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Kaze will have been lying about being a man, and reveal that he/she is actually an alien.

I knew full well that the colors would be barely registrable, but I did it anyway. You've only been here a month, so I wouldn't expect you to know me yet. I did this for the sheer joy of it. And because I am concrete. Anyway, did I mention I like math?

Hehe, I used the opposite color, just because I can.

Edit: No! I don't have ADD!

rofl, I kind of figured you were being silly, but I go with most stuff as if it were serious, even when I know it's not.

And yes, I think you mentioned you liked math somewhere. Oh yes, in that counting thread. I forgot about the second number you posted for people to figure out. DId anyone ever do it? Or did it just get lost amid the senseless counting?

You got the spin-off! It's always happening on other forums so when I saw the "I'm not a Nazi, but..." thread I knew I had to spin it in a nice, family friendly way.

No, it's just faded away as if it never existed. Though if you read my Oifan-Umtag thread, you'll see another healthy dose how to make an X base system (X being whatever integer you want 2 and above).
