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

HerbyVore Thu 14-Mar-13 12:55:39

Yes, I've seen that too, - I wonder if it's the same one?

pale olive green I would call it.

hmm?

IamtheZombie Thu 14-Mar-13 12:56:59

Where? Who?

<nosey>

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 12:57:27

here for example.

I'm glad it isn't just me wot can see it. I thought I had fallen down a hole inthe space time continuum.

(sorry Skoggy! I hope you don't mind me asking this!)

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 12:58:06

and she isn't a weirdy or a spammer or anything. She has a lot of very normal posts.

mistlethrush Thu 14-Mar-13 12:59:06

I've seen a completely different poster with similarly coloured posts - normally reserved for MNHQ posts....

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 12:59:46

Really Mistle?

<spooky music>

Yama Thu 14-Mar-13 13:00:20

Yes, I know another poster who has recently turned a sort of dusty teal colour. It pricked my interest.

CarpeJugulum Thu 14-Mar-13 13:00:22

Normal for me, but I'm on the mobile site?

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Thu 14-Mar-13 13:00:25

I'd wondered about the eau de nil posts too!

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:00:39

I mean I know mine are green, and it takes me a while every time to remember that only I can see them being green, not everyone else grin

But it's a seriously nice colour.

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:01:35

Teal? Olive?

you'll be calling it Clunch next

Yama Thu 14-Mar-13 13:01:50

At the moment Rooney - you are pink and I am green.

HerbyVore Thu 14-Mar-13 13:02:09

I was worried too - I thought someone had taken over my account because my posts are pale green (to me obv)

but this is a different hue of green

<wibble>

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:02:17

actually |I am going with Dix Blue

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:02:37

Yama that cannot be grin

Bluelightsandsirens Thu 14-Mar-13 13:02:46

All normal for me on safari

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:04:09

dix blue

see?

It's not some kind of code is it? Like the number stations.

RustyBear Thu 14-Mar-13 13:05:31

I think the colour you see depends on your screen I'd call skoggy's posts were MNHQ blue - I wondered if she's trying to be incognito

Yama Thu 14-Mar-13 13:06:13

Okay, I've gone back to have a look - you are right, it is more a dirty pastel blue than a dusty teal.

I am still green though, you are pink and everybody else is white.

This anomaly is twisting my reality man.

HerbyVore Thu 14-Mar-13 13:06:55

Okay I've checked with Farrow and Ball and it's Dix Blue.

IamtheZombie Thu 14-Mar-13 13:07:00

How peculiar...

WorraLiberty Thu 14-Mar-13 13:07:01

How very strange shock

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Thu 14-Mar-13 13:07:02

They are the same colour as MNHQ posts.

She must be a member of the team.

We should probably ask.

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:07:31

I've compared because she's on a thread near one of Olivia's posts and it's deffo different imo Rusty.

I am on a desktop on IE with no fancy pantsy stuff grin <luddite>

NoTimeForS Thu 14-Mar-13 13:07:52

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

Poledra Thu 14-Mar-13 13:10:04

"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

Yama Thu 14-Mar-13 13:10:09

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.

RooneyMara Thu 14-Mar-13 13:10:45

MNHQ is more like Dulux Blue Babe imo

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 14-Mar-13 13:11:21

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

IamtheZombie Thu 14-Mar-13 13:11:47

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.

WorraLiberty Thu 14-Mar-13 13:14:36

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.

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 14-Mar-13 13:15:45

You could be Lavender Blush, Worra wink

lougle Thu 14-Mar-13 13:16:06

"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

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.

Do you think Netmums are reading this going 'see...this is how we evolved many thousands of years ago...we are a more advanced species...'

WorraLiberty Thu 14-Mar-13 13:35:17

You two are just posting and quoting each other, to fill the thread with blue and grey to confuse my poor eye, aren't you? angry

Tee2072 Thu 14-Mar-13 13:35:28

Now, no need to be mean, I didn't mention tickers. I just think the site needs a bit of colour!

Ooh, HQ slam!

Poledra Thu 14-Mar-13 13:37:26

If Helen and Olivia keep quoting each other like that, will the box in the middle eventually get so dark you can't read the original comment?

<also needs to get out more>

WorraLiberty Thu 14-Mar-13 13:39:40

Trills Sat 16-Mar-13 11:22:58

Are the turquoise or are they eau de nil? That's a very different colour!

Trills Sat 16-Mar-13 11:24:04

I am "Lavender blush" but it looks pinky on my screen. WIBU to demand a proper purple?

Trills Sat 16-Mar-13 11:25:04

MNHQ are demonstrating with us why the general populous of MN and apparently MNHQers after a night on the gin should not be trusted with the ability to quote.

Thumbwitch Sat 16-Mar-13 11:26:06

Awwww - the grey stops getting darker after 3 and just runs together in the middle! [disappointed]

Trills Sat 16-Mar-13 11:26:11

I know you can't see this but I am properly purple now... have the colours expanded since the dawn of highlighting?

Thumbwitch Sat 16-Mar-13 11:27:00

<"Likes" Trills' post.>

EverythingInMjiniature Sat 16-Mar-13 11:30:08

They are always on the gin and MNTowers, much more fun than my job. this is how I imagine it

Thumbwitch Sat 16-Mar-13 11:35:05

Can't get that link, Mjiniature.

EverythingInMjiniature Sat 16-Mar-13 20:01:36

I don't know what I did sad it was a gin drinking fountain

Haberdashery Sat 16-Mar-13 20:52:52

I'm with Thumbwitch. I'm deeply deeply disappointed by that.

I should probably join HelenMumsnet in getting out more.
