During the transfer to Bismarck, SE has promised linkshell holders a new unopened pearlsack.

I assume that this means you will have the option of changing the linkshell color. If so, please exercise a little more creativity in selecting your linkshell color. There are several dozen linkshells that all share the same "eye-blinding maximum red" (including one of mine) that shows a little bit of laziness - or maybe color blindness.

I'm not saying you HAVE to change. But I've seen quite a few comically confusing situations where people with identical pearl colors thought that new people had joined a linkshell, when in reality, they were two separate shells at the same camp or event. (Happened to me in Salvage.)

I believe the RBG scale that SE uses can do a full spectrum of 256 shades. Please consider experimenting and finding something different instead of just sliding the damn red bar until it doesn't go any further.

Linkshells have 16x16x16 different colors, or 4096 variations.

Bismarck already has Red, Black, Blue, and Green shells. I think there might be an orange EU shell. Yellow, pink, white, purple, etc are open. I don't think I've ever seen a gray shell. You could probably make a beige shell, but then you'd be neutral.

What makes a man to turn neutral? Lust for gold? Power? Or were you just born with a heart full of neutrality?

Well, of course they could be any color they want. What this is about is for the leaders to pick colors that will distinguish one endgame ls from another. Imagine if the only color that everyone picked was 15 0 0. Then you couldn't tell who's in what ls by looking at their pearl color; you'd have to check every single person. It would be terrible.

You shouldn't need to look at the linkshell list to know who's in your own linkshell. I meant for knowing who's in which of the other linkshells.

On that note, I have it on good authority that Yamato is maybe possibly changing linkshell colors from bubble gum pink.

I promised Pravus I'd redo the website with naked mithras if he changed it.
