I'd need an idea before I could vote on it. What would you suggest Quitty?

Something lively like a nice large gay pride flag or an actual
oasis with Zebras&shit like that.Or maybe a nice solid color.

Hmm...

I can tell you right now that Oasis will never have any sort of pride color-based background. Never has, never will.

Many people surf Oasis in computer labs and other places where they need discretion and not huge pride flags and RuPaul sound clips launching whenever they come to Oasis.

As for a colored background? Doubt it.

Although, I do think that at some point, Adrian intends to have it so you can set Oasis color schemes yourself, either choosing from a small list of nicely-done color schemes, or creating some god-awful color scheme on your own, I'm not sure which.

I'm a total purist, so there will always be a black text on white background. To me, Oasis is as interesting as what you all write. The site should stay out of the way.

I don't know. Probably somebody who fears change, and wants everything they know and love to remain the same forever and always.

dont be dumb

This page loads fast. Not like some big ol' graphics-heavy banner. We're not all on DSL or cable or speedy-quick shiny things.

Fears change. Please.

How about: "Someone who is on dial-up"?

And yeah, theres something I know and love that I'd like to remain the same: Pages that open in under ten minutes.

And while we're at it, lets throw in some flash clips, maybe some appelette windows? Oasis can be the dial-up loading nightmare that mogenic (thats: http://www.mogenic.com , I believe) became. But if we go for that, I think we should top them by adding some live streaming background music.

So the files can spend twenty minutes buffering, then hang.

But hey, it would be colorful.

I can't imagine why anyone would be against it.

Oh. Right. Fear of change.

Accessibility

White on black "just works". They're exactly opposite, which makes reading one on the other very easy. Bright "pride" colours would no doubt cause problems with reading for at least a small section of users. Changing from white would mean changing the colours for links, text, poll scores, left section headers (Poll, Who's new, etc) and right section headers (Updates, etc).

Few things in life are black and white. Oasis, however is a welcome change ;-)
