# I don't think they have to be.
the christmas and Halloween ones are coloured aren't they?

Does it push up the filesize by a crucial KB though?

# less than 100 bytes more
so not that bigger deal really is it? and that's the robin one, which uses more colours than the others, i think

# To be honest
I think it might be more the fact that lots of people using different coloured icons would make the board look rather garish.

# Yep
they do have to be greyscale.

I think colour is only used on special occassion icons - christmas and halloween etc.

adding a T to your name you would progress from naive to native. Another magical whirl with an asortment of letters and you could be narrative.
