Everyone has their own personal tastes and opinions on the artwork. 
Unfortunately, only a very small percentage of those folks actually 
contribute to the artwork. If you would like to truly influence the 
artwork though, you will need to take a more active, participatory role 
on the art team.

This list is, for the most part, for the art team members to coordinate 
and discuss contributions to the artwork. While we do like hearing 
feedback from a variety of users, please understand that can cannot 
please everyone nor should it be expected that we cater to any 
particular piece of feedback we receive. In the past we have been asked 
to try colors other than blue and were met with a lot of negative 
feedback. I do not know if it is worth another try.

If you have a particular concept or design that you would like to mock 
up and share with us that does not use the color blue, I am sure we 
would all be interested in seeing it, but please do not expect that 
someone will do it for you just because you mentioned it here.
