maybe everyday, WI can close for 1 hour, like 1:00 in the morning or something, to preserve energy?

Great idea but theres really nothing we can do to help it but we could support it. You know how the peace treaty on WI has the peace symbols (like the one on my siggy pic.) we could do something like that where we tell people ways to go green in their homes. Do you want to do it with me? Rep. BTW

That's a great idea! (By The Way, How can using a black colour save energy?)

Is it ok if I put this link in my siggy?

My profile is energy efficient. Black and dark colors take less power.

I like the idea. I don't have anything to add...
Maybe a few "go green" things on the default avatars? I dunno.

Though, I just feel the need to put this out there, take it as you will.
Unless you use a certain display type (which is uncommon) on your computer, black doesn't save energy...

I thought it was true, too, so I have a very dark profile. However, it only works on that percentage that uses the thing that's not LCD, which has constant backlighting. If you are on an LCD screen (probably), the affect of dark colors? Zilch.

That's not actually true -- in fact, on most computers black uses MORE energy. Justin explained why this is in a thread from a couple of weeks ago.

Black uses MORE energy on LCD monitors.
