Default Why is the Green screen green

As I set in the stand checking the green screen from time to time. I noticed it does not light up the blind like other sights. Pland or by accident? Genius!

Why is the sky blue? Because God made it that way.

Back on The day when membership was in the 100's I told Michael and Casey if they would build it green, thousands would join.

They owe me big time.

FWIW-
If you use Tapatalk you can turn the settings to nighttime reading mode and it will turn the background black with white letters.
Blasphemy I know, but it won't light up your blind or affect your night vision as much that way.

It used to be yellow but then folks started calling it the pee screen so the mods had to change it to green.

Iíve been doing this for several years. Night mode. Also on an iPhone you can put a red color filter on the screen in settings. That really helps keep the screen dim and your eyes good to go.
