Color Adjustments 馃帹

We've heard a few of you mention some difficulty surrounding the low-contrast text here in the forum, so this is a quick update to let you know we've darkened things up a bit. The blues are now bluer and the grays are now grayer :)

Carry on!

  • You might consider running it through an ADA/508 Compliance tool (like wave.webaim.org) to help with colors and contrast. It's still pretty low contrast.

      Janelle , I agree with Tif_Ann . The contrast is still too low. I'm new, so I don't know how bad it was before, but it certainly isn't good yet. Still somewhat difficult to read.

    Oh, so you did.  I wouldn't have noticed without the announcement.   Is there any chance you could darken up the gray behind the category boxes too?  It'd make it actually look like there's sections, not the groups of floating text.

      Janelle To me, this is the worst problem. The old blue tint wasn't nearly as bad as the gray, which is nearly invisible.

      Why can't those sub-heads be the same as the comments? This is much more readable.

    • JoeDid I didn't notice this until you pointed it out, and now it Really stands out to me. I will add this to our list of things to discuss with Forubee! :)

  • Sometimes my eyes still become fatigued with the grey on sun light text on bright background. If this happens i will switch on the "Dark theme everywhere" extension for chrome. Its a bit extreme but it works,

  • No, it is still not enough contrast.  I am using a 27' monitor and computer glasses and I still squint because of the lack of contrast.  The grey is just not dark enough.

    I saw the was a notification on this thread and hoped that there'd been an improvement too the insanity is 99.5% white place with nearly invisible borders between different white spaces.  Unfortunately the hasn't been.  Although I do appreciate for coming in that is an issue.  I guess I'll go back to let parts of the internet again until this actually gets addressed.

    Faness is this something I should send to the suggestion box?  If so, could you refresh my memory on what that email address is? Thanks!
