What The Heck Just Happened?????

Two minutes ago everything was fine; two minutes later I'm morphed into some gingham Betty Crocker Land.

The pale blue & pale yellow-green are absolutely impossible to read. What happened? Did I miss something? My eyes hurt from squinting already & I've only been on here for 2 minutes.

Can you all describe the items that are hard to read? For example the threads seem pretty easy but the links at the very top that show were you are in the site (blue on blue) seem like they could be made easier to see. What exact areas of the site are hard to read?

Andy, how do we get "out" of a thread and have it then display as read (i.e., not boldface anymore)?

never mind - I just figured it out. you go to the top of the page and click on the forum again.

Andy, the best way I can describe my difficulty reading it is that everything's a bit too "pastel." The colors are quite pale and might be better if they were more vivid or if there was more contrast. The blues and yellows seem to bleed into each other with no defined edges. My eyes are getting tired already and I never have trouble with them.

I Guess I'm an "Oldster," BUT...

the new turquoise and green writing is VERY hard to read!

Is there some way I can change it in my browser without you having to change the whole site?

Otherwise, I like the new design.

Katie, which text are you talking about? The posts inside the threads? The links to recent post in the side column or home page? Blue parts at the top of the sections or what?

Please be as detailed oriented in the location of the feedback so I can understand 100%

I agree with Katie E about the overall appearance being too "pastel"..

Except for what's in black, everything is too pale or not well enough defined.

Thanks Katie....I could not describe it, and I can't look at it either.....
