Sharenator for the Future!

I have found that on pretty much any type of screen, black pixels use 25% less energy that white ones.
And what colour is Sharenator?

Maybe as a special day, or just a changeable "theme" could we have a black sharenator? (lol at racist reference).

maybe like this?( lol i just inverted the pic. re do some colours lol)

BONUS TIP: It might be enabled on your mac. press control +alt/option + command + 8 to invert the screen

    Actually i think you'll find it doesn't matter if it's black or white

    But yeah, black pixels only use less energy on CRT monitors, the vast majority are on LCD screens now and thus white pixels use less energy. So it does matter, shut up michael

    I don't think a 'changeable' theme would work, once you go black...

    Nah, I think Isle of Wight has lasted longer than any LED...

    (The spelling you're looking for is white)

    white light takes the most energy, red takes the least, look at these pictures
    this is a red giant

    it gives out not allot of radiation and energy
    this is a blue giant
    this gives out over 1000 times more energy, so the colour is more white

    The is the Green Giant. He gives you the energy you need to stay healthy! :D

    That is only on old CRT monitors, almost everybody should be using the newer LCD monitors which actually, from the source I posted, use more energy to display black pixels.

    Blackle cites an OLD newspaper(2002), and the only recent "evidence" they have is a BLOG post.

    Also, they DO NOT show actual numbers like my source does, although I am sure they are making a fair bit off those Google Ads.

    Not to mention they are actually hurting their cause, since using many smaller server farms like Blackle et al. is much less energy efficient than using one large one(Google).

    Black would be easier on the eyes when it gets dark, but I'm not sure where you're getting your info on black pixels using less energy than white pixels, as the evidence shows the opposite to be true

    that's not a bad idea when i cant sleep at night i get up and get on sharenator and the white screen burns. Or maybe find a way to allow it where people have the choice of either color im not shore if that is possible tho.

    This actually looks pretty sweet. Maybe sharenator could include it as a screen option, instead of just replacing the current layout, you know?

    thats a great idea. but i think that would be quite hard for Paul and Darius to manage though. If it is possible that would be epic.

    I don't think it'd be that hard, I've seen other websites do it, but I think they have more important things to do atm :)

    it was just a thought it would be awesome if they could but if they decide to do it they might put low on their thing to do for the site. they do have more important things to do like deal with the troll problem that is slowly creeping in.

    Oh I see how it is... She can't love me, I can't love her?

    Cause they say we're the wrong color
    Staring, gloating, laughing, looking
    Like we've done something wrong
    Because we show love strong, get real, come on
    Calling us names too bad to mention
    But we pay them no attention
    For color blind are inner feelings
    If we feel happiness
    And know our love's the best, forget their mess

    This entire thread is based around information for old technology.

    "CRT monitors, which until a few years ago were the predominant models among PC users, consume more power when a computer screen is white. To confirm this, Schindler measured the energy output of an 18-inch (45.7-centimeter) CRT monitor and found it used 102 watts when the screen was white but only 79 watts when the display was black.

    This is not the case, however, with LCD monitors, which have no phosphors and represent the lion's share of every new monitored purchased in the developed world, including those used by laptops. Instead, LCD displays rely on an array of thin-tube fluorescent bulbs that provide a constant source of light to create a white screen. To make it black, LCDs rely on a diffuser to block this light. As a result, LCDs use more energy than CRTs to display a black screen. Measuring a 17-inch (43-centimeter) LCD monitor, Schindler found that white required 22.6 watts, while black came in a tad higher at 23.2 watts. With a 20-inch (50.8-centimeter) LCD, black required 6 percent more energy than white."

    Black uses more Energy than White on LCD monitors, which anyone who can afford an internet connection uses.
