    The new shade of blue

    Is it just me or does the new shade of blue on all titles and usernames make it quite hard to differentiate between those in bold and those not?

    I have got it, too. Honestly speaking, I like the old shade more than the new.
    I am not a teacher. If there is anything ungrammatical in my post, please correct it. I am grateful for your help.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    And I now notice that the default font and font size have changed. The font size in new posts is definitely smaller. Strangely, while I am typing my own message, it's in a larger font than usual, but it shrinks when I actually post.

    The change to a smaller font size does make it significantly harder to read. I much prefer the size it was before, and so do my poor eyes.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    Can anything be done about this, Red5, or is it part of a recent software upgrade/update? Thanks.

    Thank goodness for that. I thought my laptop was having another of its wobblies.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    The font size is back to normal now.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    That's great. Thanks. I'd just that second noticed the change when I saw your post.

    Re: The new shade of blue

    The new shade of blue is very pale. I bet it's very hard to read on iPhones, or by elderly people with less than perfect eyesight.

    I propose a darker shade of blue or a return to black.
