As we add on more members (welcome!) the poll is down to one colour - GREEN! LOL I'm quite sure that everyone wasn't expecting a variation of green for 3 months so I think I'll close the poll and go with my original idea of a hybrid colour. It's quite clear that black/brown/yellow/orange are just not preferred so I won't be touching these colours or any variations of them as I hadn't really planned on them anyway.
I really appreciate everyone's feedback and I hope I can come up with something pleasing for everyone - stay tuned!
