    No, no orange: the pumpkin is a blasphemous American substitute for the original turnip, we must demand a turnip-coloured (beige and light purple?) page to hail in the new year.

    I hear you lost your job as a children's entertainer?

    Well I don't think Rhino particularly desverves any shit for that to-the-point response however this comment was pretty damn funny.

    Only once in the history of TPU (that I know of) did w1z change the logo to a holiday themed one. We had a christmas themed front page TPU logo, where the logo was an ornament on a tree or something. It apparently takes too much time to fix, and could possibly break the site. W1z breaks the site too much as it is. :p

    Well you can still do it with by messing with the colors of your monitor.

    Absolutely no "shit" was intended (never disturb the slumber of a placid rhnoceros), but you have to admit, such bluntness is awe-inspiring and was at least worthy of some comment. ;)

    What makes you think that? I didn't quote you.

    Question asked: will tech powerup be doing a Halloween theme to celebrate the holiday ?

    My answer: I hope not.

    Make sense?

    Actually, I just don't like darker backgrounds on forums. Strains my eyes too much and gives me headaches.

    I'm seeing a theme here people. Wiz is a busy guy and more of a coding genius than a designer so make him something concrete before suggesting visual changes to the site or apps.

    Sorry man, Wrigley made me paranoid that I'd somehow overstepped the bounds and offended somebody when he started talking about "shit" (it's your fault Wrigley).

    The gauntlet has been thrown down...

    No no I meant it kinda tongue-in-cheek. Sorry for the confusion. The mods here are cool, reasonable people anyway fyi.

    Sounds like the challenge has been thrown out to us by the Grand W1zzard! So get busy TPUers and create that awesome theme so he can input it ;)

    I find it tacky and unappealing. If you want holiday banners click on Google.

    You're tacky and unappealing! :p
    Jokes aside, I like it PVT but nonetheless, I have yet to see TPU dressed down in a holiday theme.
