Which colours would you prefer me to use for links?

They should do that whole animated thing like the 2012 logo and then with a bit of dhtml, fly around the screen when you mouseover.

Doesn't the whole accessibility thing suggest that you shouldn't *just* use colour to indicate anything? What's wrong with underlining?

If you want more flexibility, instead of using 'text-decoration', try setting the 'bottom-border' instead; then you can use dotted lines, &c.

Blue. Or any other colour that isn't too dark (so that it blends in with the black), and isn't too light that it can't be read.

Green might work also, or something along the colour of the rating stars on the left.

Chuck up some colour samples that fit with the AATG theme and I'll help you pick out the best. :)

Yeah, you should use underlines or something and colourwise go for blue or a maybe a lighter green. I also know what that t-shirt is and it's not funny ;P. You'd get thrown out the BB house for less.

Alright then, have a sanitized BB safe version over at Threadless.

But for the American spelling of color, I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

Not on my Mac they don't. Either in Firefox or Safari.

They underline when you hover the mouse on them but not otherwise.

Blue would be good, but anything that's lighter than the current one would be nice.

I find myself mousing over posts like a 4 year old reads with his finger, hunting for links.
