My eyes! My eyes!

[ Edited ]

It's fun to work with the new formatting options in our posts, but please, Posters, I ask you to consider your readers.  Black on white is, always has been and always will be the best contrast.  A sceen full of glaring colors in huge letters like this or this is hard on the eyes and downright unpleasant.   Colors give the most impact when used sparingly, i.e., for highlighting (as for when inserting a link) or emphasis.  

 

Thank you for your consideration.  

 

(Edited to correct a typo. They bother me.)

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

This is a serious question----not meant to be argumentitive.

Is this color and font difficult for you to read?

I have severe eye issues and find it much easier to see than the black on white.

In many cases a darker color is easier to read.  I like size 2 as opposed to 1.

I find your color and font easy for me to read.  It's the neon colors and extra-large font that are a pain.

I prefer a size 3 or 4 font in black.

Mrs.G, you might want to make your font larger, it's difficult to read.  Set your default to 2 or more.

Yes I do agree . Black and white hurts my eyes also. To harsh on the eyes. I hope they put some color in time. Sorry did not mean to offend you. You made a great point about a problem that needs attention soon as possible.
