For all of you complaining, see https://www.instructables.com/community/A_massive_AD/, which discusses a similar background-modification done several months ago in exchange for Apple sponsorship. Whether you like the color or not is a personal opinion, but setting the background seems like a nicely minor form of advertising.

Surely changing the background color is better than those horrible roll-over-and-throw-animation-all-over-the-screen Craftsman ads!

As long as they are paying instructables lots of moola, stop complaining.

True, as do i to express my opinion about him complaining. For a site to offer full customised fronts like that can get a good premium on adverts! And really, we don't want premium memberships.

No, you didn't express an opinion - you told him not to express his. I agree, but that doesn't mean I have to like it. Yes, but we do have them.

I agree it doesnt look the best, but any sponsorship is good sponsership.
