and I'm usually forest green, is there a reason, I checked my setting and apart from the fact that the colour currently in use isn't even listed, Forest Green is still ticked! Any advice gratefully received!
Thank you!

It's weird for me too.

I usually have the OPs in silver and me in lavender. I now have pink OPs and mine are still lavender.

The pale green I have for OP has become a lot brighter this morning.

Any chance of toning it down a bit?

Ideally putting it back to how it was yesterday?

RobotLover68 Tue 25-Oct-16 11:16:27

I can't even find the settings page!

AuntieStella, so many of us complained about the pale colours MNHQ have changed them back!

The stronger colours are much easier to see if you have a visual impairment.

I'm still pink - well it's not called pink but that's what it is - but OP posts have suddenly become a virulent limey green. (Rather than a muted, soothing, green.)

It looks as if Tech have been playing with colours.

Did anyone here use to be on Classic? winkgrin

See the down arrow link next to 'Talk'. (Near the top left of any board.) That's where
Customise lives now. smile

My apologies. That would be on the desktop site. On the mobile site, the arrow link is across the page from Talk, not next to it.

thank you, can see it now - the OP is salmon though and I have forest green selected confused

"AuntieStella, so many of us complained about the pale colours MNHQ have changed them back!"

No, mine didn't change to paler.

I have been in desktop via safari and none of the earlier colour changes (yes I did by see the threads) affected me. Just this change which took the distinct colour it was all along and the loss of which caused other users dismay and made it (unpleasantly) brighter.

"The stronger colours are much easier to see if you have a visual impairment."

Maybe they need to add new colours, so there is a good range to choose from? Not fiddle with one that has been unchanged until today?

I am pink too and should be green. It's still showing as green in my settings.

thetemptationofchocolate Tue 25-Oct-16 11:32:22

I just went to settings and tried to change the colour. OPs posts are still pink.
I really don't like pink!

MrsWickens Tue 25-Oct-16 11:34:20

Same here. Settings say Forest Green for OP posts but they are pink!

MistressMolecules Tue 25-Oct-16 11:40:10

It is awful, can barely read on the salmon which is what all my OP posts have become instead of the green which I can read on, I am still lavender. And I can't find my settings to change it. Please put it back to normal!!

UptownFlunk Tue 25-Oct-16 11:42:17

Same here - really annoying!

Thingvellir Tue 25-Oct-16 11:42:32

I'm on the mobile site. Please don't take this the wrong way OP, but to me you are beige grin. But you should be green....

BeyondReasonablyDoubts Tue 25-Oct-16 11:56:54

I'm usually forest green and now I'm a lurid radioactive green that is hurting my eyes!

Please mn, can you stop pissing about with the settings, just for one day? grin

BeyondReasonablyDoubts Tue 25-Oct-16 11:58:40

"The stronger colours are much easier to see if you have a visual impairment."

Not all visual impairments are the same... (it really is hurting my eyes!)

MistressMolecules Tue 25-Oct-16 12:02:33

Beyond, it isn't hurting my eyes but it is difficult to see for me also. I use overlays on my computer for visual issues and now I can't actually differentiate between OP and other posters as the colour isn't obvious being so pale.

RaptorInaPorkPieHat Tue 25-Oct-16 12:03:54

I too am salmon pink but should be forest green.

I don't like it.

nemno Tue 25-Oct-16 12:05:08

Me too. My customise settings are as I wish and I resaved them but all is still awry. Laptop Windows 10 and Chrome here.

Stormtreader Tue 25-Oct-16 12:07:43

me too

Piscivorus Tue 25-Oct-16 12:08:35

I usually have Original Poster in silver-grey and me in lavender. Those are still showing on my settings but the OP seems to be in a slightly paler version of my lavender which is a bit confusing although not the end of the world.
Nobody ever likes change though

ssssm Tue 25-Oct-16 12:09:00

Same here! I came here to say just this - settings still say Forest Green but OP's posts are pink sad

ssssm Tue 25-Oct-16 12:09:36

Oh but my own posts are still the right colour apparently smile
