I just signed on, so this might be a glitch in my system, but I see the main font colors in the Forums as a light grey, instead of white. Has this happened to anyone else before?

It's happening here too, mate. I think he's changed it. It's a tad retina-straining, so with any luck -- he might change it back to white.

I find that when reading long posts the white is an intolerable contrast with the dark background. I was trying to soften it up a bit, making reading at length easier. My monitor isn't calibrated, so it may look different to others than I am able to see.

Anyone else want to chime in?

It might work. Perhaps it just takes a bit of getting used to. Would it be feasable to put in a user option, so that we can set the color of the font that works best for us, somewhere in the "My stuff" section perhaps?

I myself find it hard on the eyes now... Perhaps a bit of a brighter Grey... Somewhere in between here and there...

While the text looks muted now the remaining white is overpowering...

The option to switch might be cool if not a lot of work...

Better for me... Is that better on your eyes though?

This is ideal. The white text was painful.

I only noticed it either last night or this afternoon. I didn't think much of it, but I will agree that it's easier on the eyes than the white.
