If I figure out a way to increase the avatar size without causing the forum to implode upon itself I will do it. Until that day comes, how about someone else do it?

I'm not even going to guess what the hell your avatar is.

Also, we're just better Cool

Everytime I hear people swarm up to talk about black background...



I guess my eyes have just evolved some sort of beneficial cataracts because my eyes haven't burned out of my head yet.

I guess there's a reason the cleverniks out there developed e-ink: white on a monitor gives people headaches quite easily while white paper doesn't. Why does GR want to give people headaches? Are they evil? Are they Game REVILution?

Took me a while to get the logo right but I thought the E for EVIL was the most important letter.

It's not so much that I get headaches, it's more that it sucks.

Is it wrong to expect things to not suck?

White text on a black background looks like an Angelfire page from the 90s. Sooo much better.

The BioWare forums look totally fine. Sure it's using dark grey background and light grey text but that serves the same purpose (not irritating eyes).

Which is funny, because there's nothing worth looking at there.

Agreed, but at least the boards look nice while not being worth looking at.

FUkc this!

I've worked hard on my post count spamming you guys to get to the level I am.

I've got my sights on Kung-fu elvis - and now that I'm close you want to take that away.
