    No offense meant, as I'm sure the capabilities of the new forums is what you were after, but can something be done about the color scheme? For people with less than wonderful eyes, it's terribly difficult to read. White on mint green, light grey on white--these are not contrast situations and make it very difficult to see. And most stuff is at 10pt or less. These would never pass a powerpoint projected from 50 feet test.

    Can a user set a theme or color scheme that they see? So that they can see it? I'm currently reading the screen from about 14 inches away to be able to ascertain the color differences.

    I've brought back the "traditional" eA color scheme. These should help out a bunch.

    Thank you. It is a bunch more readable in many spots where I was having trouble. Appreciate it!

    Fair enough. I'll keep on tweaking. Hey, can you start conversations now? I changed your permissions.

    Not to be a pain, but I thought the ast green color was pretty good.
    And yes, I can start conversations and change my signature.

    Thanks!

    What I see here is very readable and visible. I have no issues with the use of colors so long as the contrast is high. The "Post Reply" button vs. the "Upload a File" button is a good example of about where the visibility limits are. The background grey and the green are very close, **depending on lighting and screen**. (on a laptop, in mild light and a 30 degree down angle, they're very easy to tell apart. Head on...not so much. However, the contrast of the lettering to the buttons is high and very visible.

    Also, I see the password change issue has been fixed. Good to see!

    Setting the preference to the honeycomb style is a very nice visual. Great contrast yet soft odors, highly visible even in heavy light, etc. Works real well.

    Safari in iPad doesn't appear to show anything related to smileys..

    They work, but you need to use short code. I can put together a list.

    Look, it works. :)

    I'm always afraid when I add new colors. I think these should be easy to view. :eek:

    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

    Back on green, but with a modest change to it.

    Does it have to do with changing the banner back to everythingAndroid? :)

    You're alone on that one. That's a bizarre cache issue - at least that what I'm thinking.

    I'd venture to guess if you tried a different PC, it wouldn't happen. Does it happen on the Xoom?

    That is bizzare, I logged out and saw the right banner, then logged back in and it said Pre again.
