Haven't they always been that colour? I can make them blue meanies, if you like... or green meanies.

I think they were grey before.
Someone must have painted them pink to make them less frightening, maybe.
Shady grey fitted better, I think. As useful as they are, I don't really trust them ...

Well, I certainly don't trust them if they go around shifting colour... what ever next?

Oh, I think pink makes them look quite cute - especially when they're chasing Phil Image

The bots always showed up in gray to me before. I think the pink is a disguise to try to make us think they're trustworthy.
Between being a full-time college student and working 20+ hours per week, I'm not able to be involved at LV these days, but I remain a loyal fan and look forward to a triumphant return sometime in the (probably distant) future.

Yeah! I like 'bots. Especially the cute, pink, fluffy girlie kind. But they <sniff> rarely chase me......

They must have changed their color so that we would not think that they are after us, or bad in any way! I am not fooled! :twisted:

Nope, I am OK. I tricked/escaped them by logging off. :lol: But as you can see it didn't fully work...
