With over 98% male users, Airliners.net needs to take major action to attract more female visitors. As a first step, we're changing the colors of the site to shades of pink. The whole site will soon be totally pink. Enjoy!
This certainly is an unorthodox means of attracted new members, especially those of the female gender. Wonder how badly the pink will backfire (but it will be remembered for quite a while).

Airliners.net has always done some sort of April 1st joke. I remember years ago when I was lurking around this site they changed it to a car site for the day, or said that they were intending to change it to a car site, which I was not totally upset about, I wish there was a car site of this quality!

"Ridiculously"? Can't she just be "incredibly"? "Unbelievably"? Heck, even "unconceivably" works. Lower the bar a bit so more fit the qualifications...the more, the merrier, sure...but also a better chance for me! Lol.
When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.
