    Is there any way to set my profile so that the just moved squares are not that awful brain-wrangling green colour?

    What's wrong with green?!

    No, not a way to change the green of recently moved pieces, that I know of.

    Hurts my eyes man. Like some sort of migraine hallucination. No one else have that problem?

    I too think that is impossible.

    I remember the good old days when screens were mono chromatic. Purely black and white, with shades of gray. Also the amber VDU's, sometimes they were not even graphic, only alphanumeric. Those were the times.

    Have you tried to do some illegal moves? Then the square turn pink. That's a color I don't like.

    I didn't like the colours much when I started, but after a few games you don't notice them any more. Unless you're using the Wood Tile board, that makes everything look poisonous.

    {edit} Just been experimenting with boards, if you use the Olive Grove board the green highlight looks quite OK.

    I've kept that olive green board, it grows on you after a while, the greens are rather nice.

    I'm not familiar with this slang phrase. Does it refer to a sexual act?

    I can't think of anything worse than the Green highlighted just moved squares.

    what i want to know is if there is a way to change the background color, not of the board but the whole page, the bright white is starting to cause me headaches, lol ... seriously though, i would like to tone the white down somehow, any suggestions

    That is possible.
    "My Settings" -> "My Board Settings" give enough options that result in a less bright white.

    If that still isnt good enough you could try screwing around with your monitor settings:p
