I hope I'm not out-of-line with this post, and I apologize if I am. But wanted to ask if there's something that can be done to make the tiny font larger, as well as a brighter hue? I find it difficult to read the forums without suffering from eyestrain. I'm not sure if that's on my end, browser type or just the way the website is. Is there a way to at least make the font bigger outside of doing Ctrl +? xD

Good timing! I was actually just starting to work on that. I'm sorta tweaking it here and there. Should have something more complete tomorrow. Let me know if the font remains hard to read. Sorry about that~!

Thank you for working on it. :) And the changes so far look great!

The text inside of posts doesn't stand out that much from the dark background. It's like grey on black? So there's not as much of a contrast and this may be part of what makes it hard to read. I do notice the brighter blue words under the heading "Latest Posts" on the left side of the page and that contrast makes words very easy to read, much like Serpent mentioned. :) I also like the brightness and size of the text in the Countdown box as well. Both are much easier to read than texts in posts.

Looking at it all, yeah, I see that is where the problem lies: the gray hue of post text is too weak for the pure black background.

I like the colors, but now the font looks wonky. It could just be one of those things you get used to, but I think that the font on the countdown looks really nice in comparison. It's not a bad font. More like a not quite right font. (Looks great on the top links, though!)

I see, I see! The countdown thing should have the same font as the forum headers. It could be the blue that's making it kind of odd looking. I'm not sure. Thoughts? :O

And to Fall, no problem. I'm still looking for where I set the font color to turn it to a white, if not a lighter grey. I think I initially strayed from the white because bright-white on dark colors hurts my eyes. x.x But! I agree the font should be lighter at least. It's perhaps a touch too somber right now.

Still working on it. Keep the feedback coming. I appreciate all of it. :)

Found it! How's that? It's not quite totally white, but it's pretty bright. Does it make it easier on your eyes?

I see what you mean about the white contrast on black. It is a little harsh. 0o lol If I'm being too nit-picky, I don't mean to be at all, and as long as the majority are happy, I can live with that.

Maybe as a last suggestion before I'm out of them, is it possible to take the font size up one size instead of the brighter hue of white? Maybe that will do the trick.

Thank you again!
