You know, I've been thinking hard how to top my last few blends, and I have some great ideas, but it occurs to me I've been thinking too hard. I want to make some simple ones just to remind myself how pretty. I'm going to make a couple sampled from the same picture source while I'm doing my laundry.
First palette left to right diagonal:
ReconditeSamples
Second palette, different colors from the outside edges. Third palette, just different colors from the blend.

That really is a beautiful one, bezzalopoly. Deserves some extra staring. Hey, it's only 9 blocks wide! interesting.

Breeding Block Blends:
Here is today's experiment. I started by making a block blend with my RC palette.
Picked the colors other than the blended brown, because I figured brown would show up in the red+dark cross.

Then I blended the colors of the corners with this other Block Blend, using the Meyer Color Blender, as in the Palette Blend Game, and made a new Block Blend with the results (I think I got the red corner wrong... the Meyer blender glitches sometimes. When I checked with pourpre.com, I got a different color. But hey, it's close...):

Some neutral colors from this last Block (a 4 color diagonal), and the corner blue, which I liked.

Okay, here's a different one... these are all real palettes, although the block blend image is fake (was faster to make that way). It's not a block blend in the strict sense, just a progression.
I took the top palette, which is a blend of two palettes, and bred with another palette to make palette2 of this block. I blended palette 2 with another similar palette to make palette 3, etc. So each row is the result of blending a different palette with the row before.

I understand you are. We're all frustrated. :)
I seemed able to make a basic palette in IE, but some of the pages on the site (like the homepage and login) take so long to load that they occasionally just lock up and stay blank. Other ones load quickly. I don't have Chrome on this computer, - I'd have to try it later on my laptop when I can access it.

I am very pleased to see that the spam problem is being addressed and agree with Edith re being patient while these changes are taking place and also concur that some form of communication by those behind the scenes would be nice and greatly appreciated.

I have to admit that the lack of badges has actually been pretty nice. At times, I'm not a fan of the flood of badges on the sidebar. It's nice to not have some creations shoved in my face over and over again.
And I second Edith. I'd love to hear some news. :)
