    Wow - what's with the neon blue?

    All the forum section titles are now in neon blue, as are a lot of the clickable titles, usernames etc. What happened? I don't know about anyone else, but I find it particularly hard to differentiate between standard text and bold text in that colour. If I go to a section of the forum and look for titles in bold, indicating that there are new posts since the last time I visited, I'm finding it hard to spot them.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Yeah, it is a little hard to distinguish between read/unread threads with the bright blue text.

    I am not worred abourt differentiating between standard and bold text - I have difficulty in distinguishing between letters! Even if I zoom up to 125%, the dazzle effect makes it unpleasant ro read. This definitely gets a from me.

    Perhaps it is my computer, but I have no problem with the blue.

    Either the dazzle has disappeared or my eyes have got used to it. I suspect the former. I am relieved.

    Red5 has switched to black for the links. My preference is the pastel blue they used last week, but black is definitely better than yesterday's bright blue.

    Re: Wow - what's with the neon blue?

    I liked the blue.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    We're trying to find a happy medium for various viewers, to provide contrast. I wasn't a fan of the blue either.

    Re: Wow - what's with the neon blue?

    The neon blue was overbright. The previous blue, matching the color used elsewhere on the site, worked well for me.

    My original issue was with the faint, gray-on-white text below the links. That has been darkened and no longer provokes painful eyestrain for me.
