Can't please all of the people all of the time, you know. There've been a few people who don't like that green/black style. I tell them to shut up, since it's my personal site and I don't care who doesn't like it.

OTC is a Cartoon Network site. The black and white are supposed to be a throwback to CN's logo, which is also black and white.

For GCL, the grayscale theme is supposed to be an "homage" to the first generation of games, which themselves had no color. GCL's always had that kind of look. There's an alternate skin with a white background now, which mirrors the current website somewhat. I might make some alterations to the current skin, but no drastic changes. It makes more sense than "just throw some random colors up there because someone on the forum wanted colors," to me. I find it quite annoying that there are other issues, such as ones regarding content, that are being ignored; instead people are making a fuss over colors. Is our community this superficial?

Oh, and it's "Abwayax" not "Abawayax". Please do remember that the forum rules require that you type correctly.

And I'm pretty sure most sensible people don't make their decisions based solely on how colorful the site is.

You would think so.  But anyways, it is good to give first-timers a good impression.

R/G/B/Y all had a four color pallet that changed depending on what you were doing (ie. looking at a pokemon/the fight screen/on a route, etc.) but always had tat crappy pink background color.

Apparently... (Though not me, I just do stuff with the site (like make mockups) when I'm bored)

People don?t contribute to work on a nuclear reactor, but they will quibble over the color of a bike shed. [1]

This is only the case on a Super Game Boy. Other than that, the Pok?mon games had no intrinsic color until Yellow was released outside of Japan. Like all grayscale Game Boy games, the GBC and later models can apply palettes for some basic color. (Also, I?ve found some code in Red that appears to check if it?s running on a GBC, but haven?t deciphered what it does yet.)

It probably checks to apply pallet since Pokemon Red on a GBC has a Red pallet for the background in the over world and green for sprites in the over world.  While Blue is Blue and... something iirc.

Possibly, but that has always been theorized to be a function of the GBC BIOS, which has never been dumped, because games like Metroid 2 (released long before the GBC) also appear to have a default palette.

Based on opinion on this forum, the the GCL monobook skin will have a white background instead of the glitch image background.
