Difficulty in reading posts in that compulsory highlight colour

I'm a mole very shortsighted. I'm finding it very difficult to read posts now they're highlighted in that APPALLING dark green colour. There's not enough contrast to read quickly and comfortably.

I'm not visually impaired, but I'm having difficulties. Can't imagine how awful it would be for those with visual impairment.

The improvements are crap.

Totally agree with you, UptheChimney.

It is very, very hard to read & it would be lovely if your own posts & the OP's posts came in different colours.

Hi both - Tech are working on this as we speak. Please do keep an eye on this thread for updates and info.

UptheChimney Thu 06-Aug-15 15:22:45

Why did you do this in the first place? Techs rarely offer improvements to end users IME.

Oooh, it's just all gone a lime green just now. I like it!

FruSirkaOla Thu 06-Aug-15 16:04:36

Heavens above. There are more colours - now I'm pink and Up is lime!

QueenStromba Thu 06-Aug-15 16:04:55

I hate the lime green - it hurts my eyes. Can I have the colours I selected back please? Also I'm very confused because my posts used to be dark green and the OPs posts used to be purple and now they're reversed.

I don't like change!!!

The lime is very lurid!

The green is pants. Mine keeps changing back and forth.

Making me dizzy

Is there any way of making the op's subsequent threads show up in the same colour on the app like it does on the main site? ... and pictures? any chance of pictures showing up on the app?

I like lurid lime green magi, but you've never seen me in my 'Summer kit' grin

ElementaryMyDearWatson Thu 06-Aug-15 16:08:45

The lurid green is horrible. Can we at least go for a pale green?

WhetherOrNot Thu 06-Aug-15 16:11:15

Why fix something that ain't broke? I liked my choice of colours - not this horrible horrible green. Let's hope it changes soon.

QueenStromba Thu 06-Aug-15 16:11:19

I've switched computers and it the green looks a lot better now - has it been changed?

Fluffycloudland77 Thu 06-Aug-15 16:18:19

I hate it too, it's too bright to read comfortably.

I can't choose my own colours now either. This is pants.

Phew, Fru!!!! grin

Lurid green like no. Reminiscent of Per Una.

Fluffycloudland77 Thu 06-Aug-15 16:56:17

Or Asda corporate green, are we being sponsored by Asda?

MyPelvicFloorTrainsItself Thu 06-Aug-15 16:57:19

OP is a dull grey to me.

FruSirkaOla Thu 06-Aug-15 17:12:58

It's good, magi! Not quite as weird as it sounds. But I guess you're a tad relieved that we met in the Winter?!

UptheChimney Thu 06-Aug-15 17:14:04

I just want the colours I selected. not ones that techies think I should have. The lime green is horrible and not very subtle so NSFW

What do we want?
Choice!

magimedi Thu 06-Aug-15 17:21:48

Yes, Fru - speaking of which it's soon going to be time to think of another meet! wine

FruSirkaOla Thu 06-Aug-15 17:23:35

.... and then you'll see my 'Summer kit' (weather permitting) grin

ScrambledSmegs Thu 06-Aug-15 17:34:35

PLEASE can I have my old colours back, MNHQ? The new OP colour is actually quite uncomfortable. I suffer from migraines and I don't know if it's a coincidence, but just looking at the OP's highlighted posts is making my head throb hmm.

Weird, the green is fine on my laptop but hurts my eyes on my desktop.
