no contrast on the site

Post by gcb » Sun Apr 15, 2012 11:46 pm

i'm liking the site, but it's painful to read grey text on white on the entire site. black on white awesome, honestly :)

the comments are the worse. they often have much more valuable information than the description and are LIGHT grey on white. just sadistic.

Your suggestion has been heard. I'll pass it to the site guys. The comments are a bit hard to read sometimes...

The low-contast color scheme is very likely a problem for people with low vision. If you do not know anyone who is vision impaired, you will probably be suprised what they can still do. I know electronics is within the reach of at least people with low vision, and they would very likly appreciate being able to easily read and contribute to the forum.
