So, I was just PMed by a newbie informing me he skips my posts (not that he's missing much) because the violet text is difficult to read against the white background. This never occured to me, because my (and I believe the default) version of the boardello has a black background.

No one has ever conplained about this before--and I am disinclined to change because the purple prose has always felt right--but I wanted to check and see if this is a problem for many folks.

Thanks!

Susan

While pink shows up quite brightly upon my screen, I would never consider asking someone to change who they are simply to make my existence better.

Now, let's talk about that blonde. Since I'm a brunette, I've always wanted to be a blonde and it bugs me that you are. So will you please go dye your hair a dark black just for me?? PLEASE?

I think that was very rude and presumptuous of the newbie. It's fine if the newbie doesn't read what you write but why ask you to change it? Why even bring it up?

Some peoples parents. Confused

The purple shows great on the black background. Very crisp.

And yes, we should barrage the noob with purple prose and profanity.

I don't know what white background they are referring to, but I like your posts and don't have any difficulty reading them.

They presume much and are overly rude. They can skip over my posts too.

Yes, it is readable, but I don't care for it. But, hey, if it floats your boat, enjoy.

Anyway, I still find it hard to read.
I don't care that you all have laser vision and fancy black backgrounds. Razz

However, your use of BBcode tags in the poll is a lot of fun. Very Happy


You've been on the board all of 3 days, made 48 posts and insulted a long standing member of the Board. What's next? Disneyland?
