What the heck happened???
Sep 1st, 2008 at 8:26am
 
I came on earlier & was talking to Leo the forum colors looked the same. Now instead of the nice light grey color I got a dark brown It's makes it harder to read?? I didn't change anything but logged on anybody know what happened.

Just heard from Ron.  He's goofing around.  I was like you, Chuck.  I first thought my computer was goofed up already and then I thought maybe we'd been hacked again.  I was about to be really upset.  Then I thought, let's check with Ron.  Sure enough, he got up in a playful mood this morning.  It will be returned to it's original soon.  Thanks Ron for the bit of excitement this morning.

Should be kind of olive and pea soup with burgundy.  Personally I really like it.  It is the best of the changes today.  some of the others made some of the fonts hard to read due to color incapability.  This combo is really easy to read and goes well with the banner at the top.

This puke green is hard to read the black text against I would go for a lighter shade of say grey or tan or the original color.

I'm guessing y'all are talking about the background on the threads, but really, I don't see a change.  I still have the blue tones on my screen.

EDIT IN:  I just clicked the refresh button, and now I have the green tones.  I kinda like it.

Ken, refresh is usually represented by a circular arrow in a clockwise direction.  Freshens up what is showing.

In general, I like the new color combo.  The dark brown in the header bars (I don't know what else to call them) really needs to be lightened some though.  The divider lines don't show up very well, and it seems to be a little strong of a contrast to the other colors.

I'll see what I can do.

I'm considering using a lighter brown to fix another problem I'm working on.

I'm trying to keep the to the 216 web-safe colors, there is only so many combinations that work. The next time you make a new post, glance at the color grid, those are the web-safe colors I can play with.

I'd like to have a white background too..  I'm very color blind and these colors aren't working for me.  I can't even tell if the forum colors are green... or brown...  Yep.. Much harder for me to read.

I also want to voice my preferrence...I like the old colors Black text on white background.  I know these new colors are very warm & inviting, but it IS somewhat harder to read ....at least you didn't go with Black background with white writing...now THERE'S a eyeball buster combination.

I have to agree with everyone else, these colors just aren't doing it for me.  If this is the only option, I'd rather have the old set up back.  Just my $.02

I like the new colors now that you have lightened them up a little.

They've been lightened?  Sometimes I wish I could exchange my eyes for some that aren't a little bit screwy.  I can't tell that they've been lightened at all.

Don't go there.  I changed my avatar to the pink panther and that (edited out) "GLOWS".  A bit too bright.  I'm searching for another new avatar so that I can take the burn out of this one.

Between work and home I have access to 9 computers, but I only use two system. The monitors at work are all calibrated, so is my laptop that I use at home.  They all match each other pretty closely.

The third monitor I looked at was my daughter's and the colors looked goofy, and it's the only monitor that is not calibrated.

Ron,

I clear my cache every time my browser closes.  No need for me to refresh.  I honestly couldn't see the change then.  My eyes are just screwy.  It's ok.  Reds, Greens, Browns... are my enemy...   Wink Wink Wink

I fail every red-green color blind test...  I was tested as a kid, but didn't know I was this bad.  You guys can take some online tests and see how you fare...
