Well, down the line, the colors and styles will be configurable to the
user. So, we don't have control of all that. If we make the colors our
evolt colors, it'll probably clash with the background more often than if
the color was gold. I mean, how many users will use a gold
background? Well, that's not even really the point. The point is that the
site colors are/will be out of our hands, really.

Well, but we need to work towards the "he's got eleven". The whole point
here is to reward our contributing members with an ego boost and hopefully
get them to try and get another cube by contributing more. If people
really can't tell level 5 from level 6, we kind of lose that drive.

But, from the users's/viewer's perspective, I see where you're coming
from. But, our primary aim isn't the user/viewer (well, it is because it
should improve evolt, but you know what I mean).
