All The Colours Of The Rainbow...

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Howdie y'all...

As y'all have noticed by now, I almost always post my comments in a coloured font, rather than just leaving it in the standard black. I also enjoy using various fonts and sizes. I suppose it comes from being an artist. I love adding colour to my posts and this is why I do this.

I was told on another forum by the administrator that my adding colour actually made it more difficult for some people to read my comments. No one else had ever mentioned it or complained about it.

I'd really like to know if it does make it difficult to read here on TCS. Please, I'd appreciate your honesty because if it is a problem, then I will post without colour so as not to make it difficult for anyone.

Thanks and take care all...

It would really depend on what colours you are using, there are several different 'skins' to use on TCS and I imagine (and know) that some colours do not show well on all of them.

So I prefer to leave all of mine as default (that and i am too lazy to change it all the time for the amount I post) so I know they show well on every skin

The blue one that you used on this post is hard to read, since I use Night Vision forum skin, and its a dark purple/blue- so anything dark like that makes it often hard to read.

It depends on what skin people use really.

I just leave mine on default that way everyone can read it without problems

I was going to say it would probably cause the most problems for nightvision

I also have night vision and when i came to this post i just held down cursor like i was going to copy and paste, turning your text white ona dark blue background. with that said i still like it tho i like the whole being different, showing yourself aspect of life tho!

Well I WAS going to say I don't have any probs But since I saw this,Yeah it could cause issues IF anybody is using nightvision,but I think if anybody is using nightvision they must have good eyesight anyway

I think coloured fonts do better in bold if you know what I mean,It's easier for people.
Especially if they have probs reading letters.

Aw, you worry much! Go for it ~~~~~~~~~~ have fun!
If this was one of those boards with about 20 people who control the heck out of each other, you'd probably hear some griping.
But it is *not* one of those boards.

One thing missing from the fun stuff on this board is the html marquee, either missing or I don't know how to do it here. That's fun sometimes.

I dunno if it's cause of the migraine yesterday or what but the blues do hurt my eyes. I had to lower the contrast and brightness to read your posts today.
Bright colors are the worst. Sorry hun

Nightvision is generally better for people with bad eyesight as the white letters stand out really well against the purple/blue.

You could always change the font and not the colours and still express yourself but make it easy for everyone to read ?

Hmmm, I didn't know a thing about Night Vision ...its pretty cool if I do say so myself!

Well, I don't want to hurt anyone's vision so puurrrhaps I'll stick to just using different fonts and sizes for now...let's see if I can contain my creativity to just that y'all. ...and to using a smilie or two now and then

Thanks for all your input ...I truly appreciate it!

Really?I never knew,I would have thought it would be harder with blue writing,
Do you mean if it were written in black that it would show in white on nightvision?
I dunno

Normally, the text shows in white against the dark background, like where is says 'all the colours of the rainbow' on the image.

My sister has a strange eye problem and her specialist recommends using light on dark to help reduce strain on the eye. I guess it takes some getting used to as well though because nightvision hurts my eyes.

But yes, using the blue on nightvision would require some very good eyesight

Any other background really hurts my eyes- night vision is the only one that I can really use- so when people use dark colors as their font, its really hard to read, and no fun
post #15 of 26
some of the paler colours are pretty hard on the eyes on the lighter ones too!
post #16 of 26
Nope, it looks fine to me
post #17 of 26
In designing websites one is always told to think of those with vision problems and also that people read online differently to the way they do the printed page - it is more usual to 'scan' down the centre. SO most of the time it is better to use high contrast fonts and backgrounds and to avoid fonts that resemble handwriting. Ariel and Times New Roman are good and Verdana is approved by the Blind organisations. But I agree it is hard when you want to express yourself!

I have no problem with fonts but I find various colours like this one extremely annoying...
I'm not one to complain though, usually is something is difficult to read I either highlight it or just ignore that persons posts
post #19 of 26
Nope I don't have a problem with it. Bolder font is easier to read though. It is nice to see other colors being used. I guess I am just too lazy to most of the time unless its on the birthday posts.

The only colors that are hard to read to me are the ones that are really light. Deeper colors are much easier to read in my skin of Green Eyes!
post #21 of 26
Now I am really confused here, I have no idea how to use fonts or anything, I just post, I also have no idea what default or whatever it was that I am using.

post #22 of 26
Really, different fonts colors don't bother me, unless they are really light and practically day-glo. Other than that, I'm not picky.
post #23 of 26
I think the different colors are great for emphasis or when posting in the birthday threads. I use blue to denote Topaz's words when at Smudge's Cafe.

Sometimes an entire post of one color can be hard on the eyes.
post #24 of 26
I don't have any problems reading it. Whenever I find someone with hard to read font I just highlight it. Makes it soo much easier.
post #25 of 26
I find some colors hard to read. If that is the case, I just skip over it.
