A net in Pink? April 1? This must be a joke...and a very bad one...

Can A-net jokes get any lower?

For me, it's still blue. Of course, it's still March 31 for me.

Maybe your monitor is going?

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!

Yeah, but remember last year? It got completly out of hand, there were WAAAAY too many of them... hope not to see a repeat.

But the pink is funny! Though it did get me worried about my monitor for a sec, too..

I just got to thinking and, I think that any female that joins just because the background is pink instead of blue probably isn't worth having around here anyway.

"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!  wink  Lol.
