Hi Deb,

please don't take that the wrong way - and it just may not be relevant and I am the only one with that problem, but there are a few things about the design of the forum which make it difficult to read/work with:

1. black font on vermilion red

Very unreadable for me, I need to highlight to be able to read.

2. dark red wishy-washy font on black

Absolutely unreadable

I maybe need to say - I am not colourblind, just have bad eyesight and even enlargening doesn't help there.

I'd use white (or light gray) on the vermilion, and the gray you use elsewhere on the black, and make it crisp enough to read even for people needing bifocals :Smiley.

Also - the breadcrumb trail was essential to navigation in my book. I am suddenly scrolling like a maniac to switch back to specific areas.

Hi,

something is broken about the PMs - there is a plethora of help stuff shown when you write them, and nothing shown when you try to read them  Shocked

Hi! I also find the print a little small. and on the story posts it seems to be default at size 9 or something.

So I have changed my story font to Arial and size to 12. which seems to work better.

my eye sight is not as good as it could be either!

I'm still tweaking a bit - The breakcumbs moved to the right - I didn't do anything to the type-font sizes. The issue with the PM section should be fized now. Working on the vermillion on black now. - and something's going on with things being centered. Weird.
  

If you only have one solution to a problem - you're not trying.
