It's only one poster afaik - but all her posts are a sort of delicate Eau de nil.

How has this happened? She isn't the OP or a member of HQ I don't think.

Explanation please tech! grin

I can't see it. I must not have reached the necessary level of enlightenment. sad

HerbyVore Thu 14-Mar-13 13:07:58

Ha Ha x-post with you Rooney!

I'm glad we agree on Dix Blue grin

"Why can't I have turquoise posts?"

I'll tell you why
I'll tell you why
But you wouldn't believe me

You just haven't earned it yet, baby.
You must suffer and cry for a longer time

It's not just that one poster though. I have seen another. And there may be a third if Mistle's is different from the one I've seen.

MNHQ is more like Dulux Blue Babe imo

Hello. Yes. It's a cock-up glitch.

We are on it.

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:11:43

Poledra grin I'll tell you why - hy - hy - hy - hy - hy - hy -hy

Zombie wonders what colour would be appropriate for all Zombie posts.

Ponders.

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:12:04

NOOOOO

can't we all have them Helen? I didn't want you to say that. sad

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:13:02

btw isn't the 'olive' option on customise grim?

you can change it so you can see the colours for you but not others i think on customise...i have just changed mine smile

lougle Thu 14-Mar-13 13:14:09

You never know. Any one of us could appear to have these backgrounds to other posters, because to us they will appear as the colour we have selected <spooky>

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 14-Mar-13 13:14:16

No you can't <grump>

But you can Customise your own posts for yourself, if you like.

Have a play. It's quite good fun.

I am colour blind in one eye and I have trouble telling the difference between pale blue and pale green.

<< Sobs and grabs eye patch >>

Tee2072 Thu 14-Mar-13 13:15:05

I think it's intriguing. Perhaps we could all pick our own colours, to show across the boards.

I'd like to be...let me see...neon pink. With yellow polka dots.

You could be Lavender Blush, Worra wink

"I am colour blind in one eye"

Sorry, Worra, but you couldn't make it up grin

How on earth did you discover that you are colour blind in just one eye when we have binocular vision?? grin

I want to be Savage Ground.

Tee - I think you mistake it here for 'another' place grin

Tee2072 Thu 14-Mar-13 13:18:49

Ah come on! It would be so pretty!

::pout::

mistlethrush Thu 14-Mar-13 13:20:39

You'd be suggesting things that flash and twinkle next!

lougle Thu 14-Mar-13 13:21:53

Oooooh Helen could introduce tickers. It could be:

'1 minute and 20 seconds since I last posted.'

WorraLiberty Thu 14-Mar-13 13:23:24

But then I wouldn't know if I was Lavender Blush or Lilac Lilly?!? grin

lougle I was laying face down on a beach towel in the sun, when I closed one eye and realised it looked completely different shock

It was a blue/green patterned towel as well.
