Why Is The Homepage Pink & Purple?

Sat Apr 01, 2006 12:52 pm

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!

Me and Idle(DLX737200) were talking and I told him and he thought my monitor was bad!

Hopefully this won't be permanent

Hi guys.

OK, I just noticed this explanation at the top of the homepage....

"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 must be an April Fools Day joke ....... and a good one too!  bigthumbsup

That makes a lot of sense now. It is still the afternoon of March 31 here in Hawaii. Is the A.net community really only 2% female? We really need to kick it into gear to bring up that ratio. Maybe we should form a committee to come up with more ideas to attract more female members?  laughing

Ok, change the home page look a bit for some laughs, but I do have to say that I wish I did find more women on this forum. Was this one of the first sites from way before we even had internet, like from the 1950s perhaps??? I have been on here a month and all I have seen on the forum are all men. Garri767 and a few others on this thread are the only 2 ladies I have seen on the forum, out of the, I don't know, 184 people who I have seen on here... I like this though.

I will say this, for the single ladies, I already have a girlfriend with whom I am quite a bit serious...  Wink

I don't think the pink theme will do the job. Maybe a merged image of an A340-600 taking off in the foreground, and somehow covering a nude Brad Pitt's groin in the background would do. No offense intended. It would work for me in the case of a Virgin 744 doing the same job with, say, Jolie in the background...
