    This brown color of this forum is so hard on my eyes, I can no longer read this board. Can't you change it to a more appealing & easier on the eyes color? Or can I change my page to a different color? I like this forum, but will have to leave it if the pukey brown stays.
    Thanks,

    Anyone else feel the same way? We can change it if there is a color the majority of users would prefer. The forum has always been cream and brown. I'd love to hear suggestions for colors that you would like better. Maybe we can vote on it.

    I have to admit I have a problem with these colors. I prefer black print on a white background because it's easier for me to read. But I'll go with what ever is decided. :)

    I don't have a problem reading it but the brown isn't the most exciting option. I know that many people also have trouble with white lettering on colored background or lighter colored type on white background.

    I dont have a poblem with it either and kinda like it, but i can see how some might not.

    If the brightness is turned up all the way on your monitor, the contrast is a bit harsh. luckily all monitors have brightness adjustments. might be something to check out if its bothering your eyes...
