The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

Did you try vodka? They say it goes well with orange.

(I don't know, I don't drink vodka or other alcoholic drinks)


It's giving me a headache.

Are you sure that's because of the orange?

I kinda like it!

It's tangy!

Anyhoo, personally I think that the content of the site, the topics broached and the quality of its members/posters is the important thing.
I do keep humming 'Tangerine' by Led Zep' for some reason!

I can't believe this...

(In my Rod Serling voice) Imagine if you will, that Above Top Secret and the internet existed in 1933. A young widow posts a new thread:
Hello everyone! My youngest son found an orange in a parked delivery truck this morning. After cutting the black part off, we peeled it and there were two slices each for me, my two sons and my daughter. We ate them - seeds and all! Still don't know what we will have this evening. The soup line hasn't formed, yet...

2013 Post:
Orange! ORANGE?!! How could they??? It looks terrible!!! I hate It!!!

Just a little perspective...

Im surprised so many dont know how to adjust their screen-percentages to widen-shorten, or use brightness controls on their monitors. C'mon!

I have the most vivid colors everywhere on an average notebook and PC's at home and work. The orange is not bright at all.

With very bright colors elsewhere...the orange here as a matter of fact...is quite dull...almost brown as well.

C'mon folks......learn something new. Even on old and o-l-d-e-r PCs.

First world problems... I had to check I was at the right site the first time I saw the ad, I'm not used to ATS being so bright and cheery hehe. It does contrast the dark blacks & brownish-greys quite badly but meh...I don't spend much time at the top of pages so I'm not too bothered by it. As long as it doesn't start playing music and there's no audio yelling at me or popups/popunders I'm happy.

Hi,

Sorry, I am not posting to commiserate with you all over the color thing, although I don't care for it either, I really am just posting because I don't know where else to post about the TLDRer.

You knows I loves your toy, Stremor.

But where is the stuff? It says 'tldr-stuff'.

I am having trouble squeezing any hilarity at all from tldr as it is, and I was hoping for some fun 'stuff', that might allow me to say, paraphrase KJV bible entries in a way that provides funny vernacular syntax.

Please sirs, just a little Monty Python? I am having to work too hard with it to make it funny.

I suppose in today's world of 'diversity' we might insult someone, huh?



No, wait! Has idea!

How about making a corpus out of Poe and Hawthorne and then use that? It would be unfailingly hilarious, and insult no one who is alive except maybe vampires.

There's probably a fix for this, i can imagine ther eis a way to block the image specifically but i'm not 100% and wouldn't want to start posting walkthroughs, if there is any, and get banned

ad hasn't bothered me, but would rather it went back to a dark colour so my screen is less bright at night

the good thing is that it's really only the space of one post, so once you read th efirst post it's gone

and it could be worse, at least the image doesn't move down as you're scrolling down, like a lot of ads do. it's stationary so that's okay

You can use a plugin which toggles the background to black in 1 click, although it might not be allowed here, given that people here are not allowed to use adblock.

I agree 100% Manhater,, The orange has got to go. The cutie Sloth may stay , but please , my least favorite color in the universe. I would go for a more sedate color, the orange is not gonna cut it. No way I am clicking on an orange thing-a-ma-bob-to take me to more orange madness. Ouchie!

I agree, the orange is quite jarring after looking at so much calming gray down through the thread.
I thought after the last time, we were free. At least it doesn't extend all the way down to the bottom. Now that would really suck!

I thought all of us here footed the bill, ATS depends on the advertising, and the advertisements depend on us to click and hopeful buy whatever they are trying to sell. Make your customer unhappy and neither will happen…
