I popped in a request a few months ago and have been a little disappointed no-one at Nexus' conglomerate HQ tower block  :cool: in Devon appears to have looked into it.

 

The Mod pages each have a "Posts" section. When I comment using this, the box that opens for my comment has a white background and a grey font.

 

I really, really struggle to see the grey font on this white background. I'm 59/60, long-sighted and require specs.   :geek:

 

Forum pages are far easier to see - like this entry, for instance, with a white font on a dark background.

 

Please can I beg you to re-consider the default font colour and type face used in the Mod Page "Posts" section?

And please, pm me if you will do this so that I know you have taken this on board?

 

Thank you!

Thanks for the feedback, it's something we'll discuss. However, you may want to install a browser extension such as "Stylish" for Chrome

 

To make the edits, you'd need to add a background-color and color property to ".comment-reply textarea" class. 

 

Of course, this is only a suggestion :)

Thank you! Good to know you'll look into it; that's all I ask.

 

Thank you for the Chrome info - I'll see what I can do with this.

 

Cheers!   :thumbsup:

Chrome also has extensions that turn every website dark.

I need stuff like that too because reading ANYTHING on a white background is just extremely eye fatiguing.
