Default A little help for the feeble. Elederly yes but it'* the feeble that stinks.

I frequent other vBulletin forums but don't have the extreme visual difficulty I have here. FYI, vBulletin who provides the software has a many page list of options for the moderators to tweak and adjust everything you see to make the forum a comfortable, useable, friendly place.

Background color - pleasing, a nice 'guy' color

Text color - it lacking contrast when tiny text almost the same color
values as the background. blue on blue>no

Text size - tiny small skinny letters requiring magnifying glass and glasses.

Bottom line, blue on white is good, black on blue is good, blue on blue is eye strain at best.

I'm appologize that I have only one eye (retinal detach) and the remaining one at 20%.(macular pucker). I'd give anything were it otherwise. So I strugge throught but other forums have made it much easier by using high contrast text colors and a larger size.

A READABLE web site COSTS LESS but keeping more readers.TINY unreadable DOESN"T WIN AWARDS.

Moderators, an hour of consideration for a vast improvement, please.

I am always the guy who gets loud with the complaints and others say 'I was afraid to ask' or 'Ididn't know it could be changed'. Not to start a riot but to get more and contribute even more. Thanks for your consideration.

I'm sure we can look in to this. But I'm not sure what you are referring to. All my text is white background with black text. Only place I have blue on blue is the far right side for latest threads, and a few other small areas like at the bottom of the page. If you have any concerns, perhaps send a PM to niceguy and see what he can come up with.
