  1. I actually liked that idea as well, but for some reason other's didn't.

    That counter-bill makes me grin. >3
  4. Okay, so since there seems to be a bit of argueing about this option, I decided to work up an example; EE = Example egg. There. No art being used. Big letters on eggs for the colourblind and the blind all in one. That is the idea artists support because it doesn't stuff up our art.
  5. If that was the case I would be against everything regardless. However, I have made suggestions and offered support to other suggestions which I personally agree with, just as everyone else is. I brought up permissions because yes, for the more unique eggs (which is pretty much every single egg released after the colour restriction was lifted) we do own the rights to even if we're not credited on the site. And also, its a point often missed by some. And as a sidenote, you really ought to read my posts for what they are instead of some kind of matyr-ish post you think it to be. If you had of done that, you'd have seen that I have agreed with an idea and supported another.
  6. All of the examples given show altered art, not what you're suggesting. I was going by what has been presented. I don't have an issue with that idea if the art is not being used. As for the second, a colourblind user would still need to pause and look closer to get an idea of what they're going for regardless. People who are colourblind can still recognise shades and such, according to people who I've met who are colourblind *shrug*. Also, they'd still need to read the text on the egg for a split second in your idea. Either way, they'd still be slower by default than other users.
  7. You've completely ignored the other suggestion that was put forward in that case. Rollovers. They work, and for people who claim not to be able to use them I find extremely doubtful, considering (as I've pointed out as well as a couple of others) very old laptops from 2000 onwards are able to use them just fine. I'm also sure that TJ being as tech savvy as he is will find a way to make it work on the mobile site as well. Regardless of whether or not us artists can see it, the fact of the matter is you need to alter the art in order to put giant letters over them or making them greyscale. Altering art without permission is against the rules. A rollover on the other hand, you do not need to alter the art, you still serve the colourblind community (and probably the visually impared) while also keeping to the rules.
  8. Actually considering that the artists made the eggs, Cort's opinion is valid, and I agree with him. Regardless of whether or not it's optional, it looks ugly as heck. :/

    54% of Christians taking this survey think the killing of children is morally justified. Iiiiiiiiiiiinteresting.

    Depends entirely on circumstance. If said woman's life is in danger, then no. If she's having an abortion when her life isn't in danger however... well, I suppose a grace period would be a good idea so that she can evaluate her decision completely. I'm not sure why there needs to be a law saying so though. Seems like a waste of time to me.
  11. I find that extremely difficult to believe. I have a 2001 laptop that can see rollover's just fine. If people are using a computer older than that then it is not the site's responsibility to keep up with technology THAT old. I'm not sure about smart phones myself since I hate the things, but I am sure that, given how good the technology is, there's no reason it couldn't work in some form.
  12. I much prefer Corteo's idea of rollover's than giant letters on eggs.
  13. That's generally the case for most paranoia involving a group of people, sadly.

    Does anyone have a copy of ShinyTomato's statistics and sources please? I need to cite some on another site.
  15. The sad part about this (and I grit my teeth as I say this) is while I am just as certain that just as many straight people act like horndogs as gays do, because of the... I suppose 'highlight' on the gay agenda that there is, it's more 'seen' than that of straight people who act the same, because being straight is *ahem* 'normal'. Using it as an arguement for making divorce rates skyrocket however, is ridiculous.
  16. Straight female and full supporter of gay rights. :3 Yo.
  17. I have to agree there. :x If I were a gay male I would be pretty offended at the notion that a religion is okay with one half of my relationship but not the other.
  18. You can believe whatever you want to believe. But don't be surprised when you post in threads with your beliefs and people debate them or are offended by them. Because, people who believe the same things you do oftentimes are horrible to homosexuals, even if you personally aren't. Call it a bias if you will or even paranoia, but unfortunetly people have reason to be paranoid when Christians such as yourself who believe homosexuality is a sin have gone so far as to maim, rape and murder people simply for being born different. I also find it kinda interesting that so many Christians condemn people as sinners for their sexuality, beliefs or their gender, when Jesus never had a problem with everyone, and taught people to love one another no matter who they are. So interesting that Christians like yourself don't follow the very beliefs set down in your own bible. "I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." Mohandas Gandhi
  19. The point of my post is that people have only started getting up in arms about it because of the tacked on moral reasoning. Had you had read my post more carefully you'd understand that. What does my country of origin have anything to do with the post I made? As for the birth control pill debate, my opinion on that differs because of circumstance. This judge can send people next door to do the job she refuses to perform. I wasn't aware that dispensing pills is an optional part of a pharmacist's job. It IS their job. If there are two pharmacists there, one that doesn't dispense the pills and the other that will though? Got no problems at all. The same way I don't have an issue with this judge for her own moral stance.
  20. I find it interesting there is so much nay say about the judge. What if she had simply said, "sorry, I don't perform marriages. Next door on the left there's a judge who will however, feel free to book an appointment with them." No excuses or reasoning behind it. I have to wonder if those of you who think its wrong would still feel threatened, offended or think the judge is being discriminatory if she had never stated her moral reasoning behind her choice. In fact, I doubt it would have even made the news. Yet you're getting up in arms for an optional part of her job that she chooses not to perform based on her moral reasoning. Yeah.... just no.

    What makes me angrier than the laws themselves is that people support the laws. Like, ordinary people and not the morons in the government. THAT is what sickens me most of all.
