Seems a pretty small issue. You don't like red. If it were changed to green, someone else might not like the green. It's a matter of personal taste, and therefore not something you should ask (or at least expect) to be changed.
I absolutely agree with Maddie, it's just a matter of personal preference... There a saying that goes like this: One man's meat is another man's poison. So, it's absolutely if you don't like red... but even if they changed it to the color that you'd love, someone may also come to this forum and say, "Oh, I don't like this color that Hubpages now uses". Wonderful question: What's going to be the color that'd be great for everyone?
Who said I am insisting for the change? I just expressed my views. There may be differences in opinion. Nothing is permanent in this world and everything changes with time. May be one day designers of hubpages decide to change it to other color. Afterall this depends on the outlook of designers.Its useless for fighting a non-issue.
Me too dislike red color. Hubpages maintain simplicity in design and layout of hubs but I don't know why they have choosen red color and that too in a large size arrow that doesn't match with hub design. In fact it gives a childish look.
Everyone has an opinion about colors, but really in the end it is just how we feel about it. If we want to have negative thoughts about red, we will do that. I have decided all colors are equal and not one particular color will effect me more than an other. Just my two sense worth.
Hi I just did a little piece on the 'psychology' of colour....well popular meanings anyway here is the bit about red
Perhaps the warmest of warm colours red is considered a very passionate colour the colour of love hearts, romantic roses and blood!! It is the colour newborn infants immature eyes are most drawn to. It is an emotionally intense colour, strong, bold and brave. It is used to denote determination, desire and courage. Red can be considered confrontational and intimidating but is also well know to stimulate appetite as it makes food particularly meat look appetising. Red is a good choice for anyone who wants to bring heat, intensity and passion to their surroundings. But you don’t have to use it lavishly
perhaps the hubpages people were going for the attention grabbing qualities and inspire determination....they just got all the heat and passion on the side!! and a little tuna!
Misha, Kenny & Prem - thanks for the appreciative comments! I've been rather preoccupied of late with an unpleasant invasion in my new rented apartment. But at least I found time to write a hub about it!. Hope to free up more time to spend here
i like the issue of the use of red in hub pages. gets me to a serious topic are there colors that are more attractive than others? or are there colors that bring more hits and traffic to your site? are there colors that bring more success to a person? are there seasons when to use colors? well when i was starting my website <snipped link> i did a small research on colors. i realised that in Kenya companies that used a combination of Red,Blue and white were most successful. At the time for media companies they started to use a combination of orange, Yellow and green in their programing i guess trying to signal a new trend. so i followed the same trend in choosing the colors for the website. Now the thriving color is green for companies. i wonder if hubpages put much thought into the choice of color? may be not . one blogger said men like Blue and women like Red so am okay with any color as long as its shade is brighter
Bed bugs seek out people and animals, generally at night while these hosts are asleep, and painlessly sip a few drops of blood. While feeding, they inject a tiny amount of their saliva into the skin. Repeated exposures to bed bug bites during a period of several weeks or more causes people to become sensitized to the saliva of these bugs; additional bites may then result in mild to intense allergic responses. The skin lesion produced by the bite of a bed bug resembles those caused by many other kinds of blood feeding insects, such as mosquitoes and fleas. The offending insect, therefore, can rarely be identified by the appearance of the bites. A physician should be consulted to rule out other causes for the lesions and to offer treatment, as needed. The affected person should resist the urge to scratch the bites, as this may intensify the irritation and itching, and may lead to secondary infection. Physicians often treat patients with antihistamines and corticosteroids to reduce allergic reactions and inflammation. Despite what you may have heard or read elsewhere, bed bugs are not known to transmit any infectious agents.
I'm glad to see that all the red colored arrows used to attract hubbers to "start a new hub" are things of past now. I just wish to convey my senior friends who participated in this discussion and opposed my suggestion to replace red color with any other color that its not necessary that if you are more vocal so you knew more than others or wiser than others. There is a clear message that best suggestions are always taken care and it doesn't matter who is making suggestion but important is:Is it for betterment or not?
I have looked around the forum and I can't really get a handle on a definitive answer to this so I thought I would just ask. Is it ok to post hubs that are completely opinion pieces or rants, sort of like an editorial...
I may be new here, but I do alot of reading of forum posts...but it seems that alot of people get offended easily. We all have our own opinion and we should be given our right to say it...so why be offended if...
That would be silly. Why would anyone follow someone that doesn't write what they want to read? I follow someone when I find a hubber that writes hubs I'm interested in, not as a social exercise to raise my...
