Hello. If possible, can you please fix the 420 emoticon so it can be seen on a black background? Thanks.

It is possible if you quote yourself after using the emoticon the first time because the quotes have a lighter background.  Redundant and tedious, but possible.

Perhaps it could be red instead of black? It does not affect me 'cause I stay on litepark. 420 :twisted: !

Yeah but wouldn't you have to use an animated icon editor like Microangelo even to do that?  It's actually kindof a pain to make animated icons...

precisely.. I'll look into seeing if it's possible to do in ImageReady.. but I won't get my hopes up.

most of the those emoticons are just ones I've found on different sites, etc..

Photophobia!  Family history of glaucoma and retinal failure!  I'll stick to the shadows for as long as they linger here.  

I think I still have a copy of Microangelo around here, maybe *I* will make the 420 logo red.  

Maybe.  I'm slack...

I have more than 2000 cd's of audiovisual files, programs and straight up pirate ware to sort through, and not particularly well labelled.  I find it one of these days!  I think I've narrowed it down to 3 zipcases that carry 500 CD's each.

Let me know when/if it's uploaded so I can take it off the server  :)

I'll need to see it on a dark background to see if there's any ant-aliasing problems (i.e. jagged edges of light colours that only show on dark grounds)
It looks excellent from here!  I don't use the litepark option so I don't know how green looks vs. red, but I do know it's more appropriate.  Thanks for the effort either way!

Sorry I'm a n00b (and from abroad), but what in the shitrock does 420 mean?

Uh oh and btw, a friend of mine found tpb somewhere on the intarweb and I've seen all the episodes. I must say this is the best friggin' tv-series I've ever seen. Me and my friends in Norway are totally addicted to this. Can't wait for season 5!!!!

I believe that it is the international symbol for dope and/or dope smoking.  Evey year on April 20 at 4:20 I assume a LOT of people toke up and celebrate mary-joo-wana and all it's great endeavors.  Someone else might be able to give you some history on it.  BigBen seems to be well educated in the drug area.

I don't think that it's a coincidence that the show premiers on the sunday closest to 4/20 :lol:  8)
