Since we're discussing writing articles, and various reasons that people 
don't or can't, I'd like to make a few suggestions:

1) If you've got an idea for an article and think that you're not very good 
at writing, don't put it off. There are members in the admin and theforum 
lists who are willing to help you out with style, structure, and 
formatting. Send in your article ideas or drafts. Please. (Use the contact 
form at: http://evolt.org/contact/index.html )

2) If your article is too elementary or too advanced, don't let that stop 
you either. Evolt's members range from novices to masters. Whatever skill 
level you're aiming for, chances are that some people will find it useful. 
Also, a guru on one topic may want to learn more about another. An XML guru 
might be really interested in learning about colour theory and vice-versa, 
for instance.

Lastly, if you're interested in helping decide evolt.org's future, join 
theforum, the list where ideas whiz through faster than speeding bullets ;)

Oh, and somebody wanted an easy way to find complementary colours. That's 
simple. Go to:


It will help you find complementary, triad, analogous colours, etc. The 
related tutorial page is at: http://www.colorschemer.com/tutorial2.html

I saved the web page to my hard disk so I could use it offline too.

Hope that helps.
