Default Which GCM background are you using?

This yearís April Fools background was hilarious, but I didnít want it for more than a day. Did you see it? You can change your background to any of our past April Fools, as well as some others by going to your User CP and selecting Edit your Details. The drop down menu is bottom left. I switched mine to Gentle Gardening Mothers, and itís a nice spring-y change. Which one do you like best?

I have the original. I couldn't handle the black background for more than one thread. I changed back to original ASAP.

Mine's set to "Blue". I'm not a flower fan but I find it very readable.
I did get to see this year's theme because for some reason I was logged out; I liked it! (Well, liked the concept - I was fine with only seeing the front page then logging in and being back to "Blue". )

I still use Metalheads on an actualy computer but not on my phone. On my phone I use Galactic. Not a fan of pastel colors and I love bold colors that are easy on my eyes. Black feels restful for my eyes.

I forgot about them as well. I used to always set it to green until the year of Genteel Christian Mothers. I liked the red. Right now though I'm thinking Marsupials is really nice on my eyes.

I had it on Groovy for a long time, but then it started loading funny & now I am on Creative (that sounds like my kids talking about Minecraft).

Gentle Creative Mothers. It came out as a bright ray of hope in a dark time plus it matched one of my babyís sleepers at the time so I loved it all the more.
