you understand that different monitors will display the coded color differently

All i can suggest is buy a new monitor (or sit on the floor )
Because I can't be the only one that can't see it clear enough.

because you wont be the only one with a different monitor.

EVERY monitor reacts differently, actually its down to the GPU and how it reacts to it as well.

Odds are there will be just as many people who cant see it to those who can.

you cant change it just because a few cant.

As @Eklipze3k has pointed out, its also down to the viewing angle, if you dont want to sit on the floor can i suggest something else..

...tilt your monitor backwards..

If there are just as many people who can't see it as those who can why not make it more clear?

Oh, and it's back all the way.

Re: OP posts different colour

What stu meant is that in the sub forum where the thread is located, under the THREAD title is the User Name of the OP. problem solved


Maybe the solution is to have 2 different color schemes. This for the ones who can use it and a lo-res for the rest








Or a different colour scheme

Re: OP posts different colour

just my thought on this, the OP post colour is to similar to the Quote box colour.. Sometimes when scrolling quick it tricks my eyes into thinking quotes are OP posts.

Re: OP posts different colour

Not helpful I know, but I'd noticed the seemingly random colour coding of some posts before and never realised what it was.
Now I know - I feel enlightened (and able to see it quite easily)
