Sorry to hear that. I must confess that after nearly 14 years of haunting this forum, the colors are to me like the knock on the door of an old friend. Maybe it'll grow on you.

I. Suggested on the other thread where this was raised reading the printable version. However an eyetest might be an idea too incase specs might help.

dont need an eyetest, already got glasses, and its not just me, I know a few people who are put off by the font and black background on this forum, they said they dont come here often because after a few minutes they get either headaches or that weird optical effect like looking at something bright and getting afterburn, *whatever* I think you guys are missing a trick, if your font was more relaxing to use and lets face it not everyone has perfect eyesight, people may stay longer. just sayin.

Anyway I didnt come here to moan.

well. I do like moaning about the Hobbit movies. cos they suck monkey balls.

Same here! More than anything I loved the format(?) of Barrow Downs. Green or Sky Blue fonts and black background was what attracted me most. Rest were the discussions.

Not all old friends are welcome. One of mine drank all my beer then peed in my wardrobe because he couldnt find the loo.

Have to say I like the consistency of this place. Still mostly the same as it was back in '99 on EZ Board. I find the Barrow Downs colour scheme 'comfortable'.

well black backgrounds were probably trendy like 20 years ago but these days people know that they give lots of people headaches, so if you dont mind the fact it is preventing some Tolkien fans from contributing to the forum and being able to take pleasure in reading the forum posts, its entirely up to you.
