What I was getting at is that I think it'll look better on any evolt page,
not just using the current colors. The red, green and blue boxes in the logo
will always be there and I think sticking to those colors would be better
than introducing another one in the gold cubes.

Unless, of course, the cubes are generated on the fly using any color the
user chooses. But that's a different gig altogether.

Anyone who can count to six should be able to tell them apart, so that's
hardly a problem. At first glance, though, I don't think anyone who didn't
sleep through all of the math classes in school will look at six cubes and
think "twelve!" (I'd pity the fool who does). I guess my main point is that
I don't consider it important whether a user (non-member) thinks "two solid
and one transparent cube" or "level five", as long as it's obvious which
levels are higher than which.
