Is Givewell still on MeFi's black list?

Design Brief: "We aren’t partial to any color..." (but we fear the Blue)

Found through this question: Metafilter's own GiveWell wants to change their look. Wonder if any of you talented MeFi web designers want to make them a nice *blue* homepage.

GiveWell, or Give 'em Hell?

Is This Transparency? OP with very slim, one-year posting history asks a question about finding a good charity in AskMe, just prior to year-end tax-decision time.
