How to read my color codeing:) STICKY PLEASE

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Often when I post my opinions about a certain food or ingredients, I color-code my text so that it is easier to determine how I feel about it at a glance. I recently learned that one of our members has some issues seeing the colors I tend to use so I may be changing this if anyone else has similar issues, but whenever I post my thoughts about foods/ingredients, when I use Blue text, that means good or great, I like it a lot ... or the percentage is ideal. When I use Orange to Peach text, this means caution - the ingredient may be fine for some cats but for others it may not be ... I will often use Orange to Peach text for ingrediants that may cause allergies or that the percentage is in the "norm" but not necessarily ideal. For those ingredients I would avoid or that have percentages out of the "norm", I will use Plum text.

I hope this clears up any issue anyone has with understanding how I post my thoughts on foods and ingredients.
By request and hopefully easier on the eyes

this is blue it was green

orange was yellow
Magenta was red

What an excellent idea, Sharky!!! Thank you! This will make it much easier to see and avoid those colors that may not be ideal.

OK

can you still edit that post? It may be easier for people if each colour was on a different line for a quick reference

I know I'm a terrible troublemaker but the brown doesn't look any different than the black to me. It appears the same.

Stupid color-blindness.

Blue stands out GREAT, thank you, and the yellow I do have to highlight with my cursor to read (or else it's just a yellow glow and I can't see the individual letters,) so the orange definitely stands off the page for me MUCH better!

I use the Green Eyes skin, which is easiest on my stupid eyes, so I'm sure that the color differences will work out differently depending on the background coloring.

Regardless, thank you so much Sharky - I appreciate your expertise on nutritional matters, and it is extremely helpful as I grow as a cat owner to be able to continue to learn new things that will help me to best take care of my cats.

You rock!

Oh, DUH - you edited your OP. Actually, they also look about the same to me - just dark.

The color that the "or" is - is that Dark Orchid? That one is great! Either or, though, both of those do stand out, IMO.

You're too good to me.

The Dark Orchid looks like a hot pink to me, but it stands out and doesn't look like any other color.

It may seem silly, but I really appreciate the trouble you are going to for lil ole me. Like I said, I value your nutritional expertise, and to be able to - at a glance - look at an analysis profile and know immediately what falls where - that's awesome to me.

I've gotta smack my dad again for giving me the gift of 10% red color blindness. I can see most colors fine, but those that have reds in them don't look to me like they do to "normal" eyes. A lot of oranges look red to me, blues look purple, and vice-versa.

Females aren't supposed to ever BE color blind, we are supposed to simply carry the gene and pass it along to male children. I'm an anomoly.

My dad can only see like a dog does: in black/white/grayscale. He had to learn stoplights by accepting that green is the bottom one, yellow the middle, etc. When he was married to my mom, she had to dress him. Once, she didn't pick out his clothes, and he wore a tie that clashed with his shirt, and one black shoe and one brown shoe. His coworkers picked on him for months for that one.

At least I can see MOST colors, LOL!!!

The ones that stand apart from each other the best - for MY goofy eyesight - are the ones above.

The YellowGreen hurts the eyes on my skin - but the rest are good!

Betsy the troublemaker, eh?

I think the new colors show up better on the CatSite Default Style, too.

Bumping for newbies. (Sorry Chris, I deleted your post thinking it was just an old thread you bumped up - now I see why.)
