    I have bad eyes.. yellow is ok with me... its the darker colors with light print that get me every time. Relative: my bad eyes require glass's for reading not for anything else so maybe this is different for other disorders?

    I'm not crazy about this color either. I do like the text better though.

    I don't care for the new format. It was easier to skim through the topics the old way. Oh well.

    I like the new features, but I do wish they hadn't changed the color. It won't keep me from the QB, but I liked the black and white better.

    Admin has tried several color combinations for the new version of the board. He got both "we love it" supportive comments and screaming criticism about every attempt.

    we are impossible to please. :lol:

    over time, he'll keep tinkering in search of features and looks that appeal to the most members possible.

    in the meantime, let's appreciate his hard work on our behalf; offer constructive group-oriented input; and enjoy this wonderful FREE board.

    I like everything about the change so far except this yellow color it blurs the words for me. I spend literally hours a day looking at things on here. Everything I have learned about quilting had come from this site. I am so glad I found it and have been very happy with it.

    I must be the oddball - I like the yellow background! lol!! It's not so glaring to me, more soothing to look at.

    Maybe a softer hue of this color? This has been interesting seeing what new changes have occurred-I like Change!

    the larger print is a HUGE bonus and thank you to whoever is responsible for not only setting up the updates but for keeping this board a float. It is SO appreciated. I get up, I check my email then I go straight here before I even read the news. I love it here.

    I can read this ok. There are changes everywhere and this is one I can live with just fine. Thank you Admin for all you do. I, too, spend way more time here than is practical!

    I like the yellow. The thing that bothers me is the white background in the quote box....it really glares in the middle of the yellow. I think shaded yellow like behind the avatar would set it off well enough to recognize it as a quote.

    I really preferred the old format, but I can learn to live with this, but I agree that this yellow color is very hard to "live with". I don't think I can spend a lot of time on board with this color.

    I like this color on my machine it's beige. Very easy to read and not so glaring.

    Don't like the yellow. I thought the white was easier to read.

    It sounds like everyones computer is different. There is a way to change colors on your machine I wonder if it's that. Like I said I'm beige and loving it.

    Maybe a difference in monitors? Mine is showing a soft yellow, which I really like. :)

    Since I'm new here, I didn't know about the other colors. I like this one, it's easy on my eyes. :-D

    Hey..that's why there's so many different fabrics for our quilting, so it pleases all of us quilters. ;-)

    I've got to stay off of here today, 'cause I've got a couple custom orders I've got to finish up today.

    Hope everyone has a great day!
