Since the background on this site is mostly all black, text that is posted in red is nearly invisible to me. Is there any kind of a "workaround" to this problem? I am not totally colorblind, in fact I see most colors just fine. It's just red on black that disappears to me.

I just wish people would not post red text.:sad:

Yes...

The forums are designed so that you can use different "Themes" (which give you different colors).

Click on the "My Account" button you'll see at the top of each page, then select the "Preferences" tab. You'll see a drop down list for "Themes".

Or, click on this link to go directly to the Preferences page:

Try the "Default" theme.

I suspect that no matter what theme you pick, some $(#@$ idiot who is trying to be fancy will find a font/background combination that is unreadable. In general, those posts can be ignored, but highlighting them as though you were going to do a copy/paste will often make them readable.

Very rarely is it worth even that minimal effort.

If I can't read some text because of poor color contrast problems, I try highlighting the text by holding the mouse pointer, and dragging it across the text.

Enjoy life,
Steven
