colors on this site

Ralphetta | Posted in Feedback on Threads on

I hope the unpleasant color combinations I’m seeing today are just an experiment. I’m getting the old aqua, royal blue, with pea-green, tan, dark read, etc.

    I like the banner colors.  Maybe the blues will go in that direction also.

      I like the banner colors, too, but agree that the gray and blue need to change to match it--the combination is NOT good.

    The headings are turning up in Purple now.  I love the new banner, but the pea green is a bit busy for my taste.  Makes it hard to concentrate on the important stuff being written HERE.  Cathy

      I think the green is just plain ugly next to all the other colors.

        I agree, it is ugly with the other colours.  The blue is fine, except that the green makes it odd.  Cathy

          Your words are more tactful than mine.

            I like the headline lettering, colors, but the only change it should be the green must be edit to pehaps the same color of what it looks like above this page burgandy, deep red. the green is way to hard on my eyes.

            tee hee, your words are merely bluntly honest.  :)  And that is what we love about you!  Cathy

            Sometimes I really feel sorry for Threads, We all sit at home (or elsewhere) and pick on them for every little change they make on the website! (I don't like the green either!)
            I'm just glad nothing moves anymore!Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving

            I actually like the new colours and the new look of the web page. Isn't it great that we are all different.

          5. Ralphetta | | #11

            Good point! The movement made me feel queasy and that same shade of green.

    I love the banner, but you gals are right, the blue looks off, the hot pink is awful, and the green reminds me of my youngest grandchild...if you know what I mean...trying to be delicate...LOL.

      Whoa!  When this site opened that red-burgundy just hit me in the face.  I did figure they had to change the green bars because they were in contrast to the other colors, but I didn't expect the change to be so noticeable at first.

      1. jjgg | | #14

        An interesting tidbit on red & green. They are 'complimentary' colors - opposite each other on the color wheel, but green is also the after image of red - stare at red spots for a while, then look at a white background, you will see green spots. So, the reason operating rooms are traditionally painted that sick green color, is so that a surgeon after bending over a surgical site that has blood (red) in it looks up he/she won't see green spots on the walls!

        1. ShannonG4d | | #15

          I'm guessing that the color scheme is chosen to match the colors used on the cover of the current issue:)

          1. jjgg | | #16

            That's a very interesting observation. We will have to wait till the next issue to see if it changes!

          2. Ralphetta | | #17

            I don't remember any fuchsia.

            Yay!  The green has been changed!  It is now the same lovely red/burgundy in the banner.  Much better.  Thank you.  Cathy

            Does the deep red/burgundy/magenta color some of us are seeing look fuchsia to you? On my screen, some of the lighter shadings of the color look almost orangish.

          5. Ralphetta | | #20

            No, it's the small writing in the sub headings..."post new", and "feed back on Threads." Headings like "post" and "spell check" that are in larger print are in the same red that appears above.

          6. Josefly | | #21

            Oh, yes, of course. It's funny to me, and annoying also, how much I don't see when my eyes scan over a page. I sometimes don't see the trees for the forest.

      2. denise | | #22

        guess what i love it all  except i cannot find things as easy but then that is good brain exercise for me.  

        But where is the section for writing to the magazine.
