When I redesigned this site over the summer, I confess I didn't give an immense amount of thought to the background colour pattern that sits behind its pages - other than to make it vaguely complementary to the CfJ blue (according to the colour wheel).
Since then, there has been a degree of comment from users about my selection. Some objected to the colour ("too yellow", they cried. I like to think of it as gold.) Others objected to the diagonal pinstripe in it - which admittedly doesn't render brilliantly in all browsers.
So in the spirit of open source collaboration, I'm opening up the selection of a background to all members of the CfJ community.
The eagle-eyed among you will have spotted that this afternoon we're sporting a pinstripe-free version with a subtle gradient fade from right to left, while still retaining the gold flavour.
Next week we'll experiment with a couple of other entirely different alternatives. In the meantime any suggestions are welcome. And by the end of next week, I'll assess the feedback and settle on a final decision.
Let the debate commence.
