Please adjust the forum colour scheme

freemor - 3 months ago -

The current theme for forum posts is a very poor choice from an accessibility stand point white on purple will be very hard to see for people with vison problems.

see:

https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/Understanding/contrast-minimum.html

There are other problem spots on remine in general (lost of grey on grey etc)

But the white on purple really either needs to go or the font need to be larger to compensate for the poor colour choice

I underrstand what you are trying to do I'm just saying to keep an eye to accessability.
The forum colours are now better, Thanks. But those changes made the main Labs.parabola.nu hard to read

Sometimes less is more :)

for example the wiki does a decent job WRT keeping things readable for people with vision issues

i did not intentionally change anything related to the bug tracker -the GUI elements for the forum have mostly different CSS - if you notice anything wonky in particular, add it to this thread

this text entry has aqua colored text now, that may be something i did inadvertently
