Eek

That shade of green for the donate link just isn't right.
How about a gold or orange instead? That goes with blue nicely.
Or some sort of button effect. Just not lurid pea green please!

Well, for a highlight colour, that's noticeable, it fits fine with the EAB colours of blue. Orange isn't going to work because of the shift towards the red end of the spectrum, it's all to do with the distance between the colours and the respective wavelengths.

Cyan is probably the next best choice, but for it to be really noticeable, it's going to have to be green or cyan Example below:-

Okay I made something, the donate link color will now change from red to green the first 9 days of each month, then it will be white for the last 21 days

Last edited by RCK; 06 October 2013 at 14:12. Reason: in fact it was the first 9 days and not 10 :p

Wasn't expecting this RCK, definitely different, but not a bad idea

Shouldn't it go from red to green based on how much is donated, and once the "target" is meet it could turn white? Well, that would be the logic if we are having trouble meeting each months costs. If we on the other hand are having funds over, and the cost is meet early each month, then perhaps it would be a bad idea and stop people from making donations once the monthly goal is meet.

Extra money goes towards new hardware, and stuff like that i mean. In the case there are any.

You're a fan of Scorsese's The Color of Money, aren't you?

erm, is that in effect now? Is it a gradual change or immediate? The reason I ask is that it is yellow for me!

I do think the colour change is a great idea though

Yes, it (gradual change) is in effect now. Colour will change gradually from red, through orange (where it's at now, approximately) and yellow, eventually to green.

Smart, eh?

I don't wanna force anyone to donate, so I don't want some kind of "goal" to be online.
The idea was just to make the donate link in color the first 9 days of each month, I think it will be enough as reminder for members

Well, I'm not sure what you've changed.......but it's made my medal disappear altogether!

You will have a red medal for the first 10 days following your donation and a gold medal for the next 20 days. Your medal will disappear on the 31st day after your donation.

I guess your time's up.

No, not at all. To keep EAB online, RCK is paying the balance of what is left after all donations are taking into account:

Without the hardware server (arround 2000€ two times), it cost me 120€ each month for secured space in datacenter (redundant power, redundant air conditioning, redundant backbone access).

Haha, it's already more than one month dude !
But maybe I should display your medal for two months because of the big donation you made

Anyway, I just change the donate link color to one static light orange color.
I think it will be better like this, because the daily color modification was making horrible sick colors

I actually feel like I'm in a virtual reality version of Cannon Fodder with my medal.

That means RCK is Jools...

Donating never been so much fun, click the link... loads more EAB (this post belongs in stupidity)
