Unless you're using the quick reply option, just below the text field there are options for requesting read receipts, and to save a copy in your Sent Items folder, etc.

posts 25-26 , Your target user is male and color blindness, color diferentiation problems are most common with Males, me included, The gray- black makes it hard for me to read, how can I get back to just black and white. I never try to read websites that have NOT ran thru a color blindness check program. another site changed their colors , Eye strain is bad enough just reading the screen.

No.

Done that already.

It gives you gray boxes. It is not like it was before.

X3. I thought it was just me being fussy.

If they want two tone look, make the user banner grey and the post white.

This was brought up already a while ago. Hopefully they'll change it, considering how many have objected to it (going on the theory that several people actually bothering to post about it = a LOT of people who feel the same way).

123pugsy's idea for a different color scheme works for me.

I'm not crazy about the color scheme either, but really doesn't bother me that much that I need to fret about it. The site is up, it runs fine, needs a few tweaks, but right now, is all I need for my little bit of participation. It is a free site where you may express your ideas and information. Or as some others have done, gone 'elsewhere if you are displeased with the new owners many improvements, some good, others not to my taste, but so what!!!

I agree it's no biggie, but considering "This is the thread to post your bugs, issues and feedback", it's kind of a speak now or... kind of thing.

I may be wrong but I am going on the idea that if one person posts it there are X more thinking it. So in THIS case there's good reason for as many people who feel strongly enough about it, to say something now. If everyone saw a post saying it's too dark and they just silently nodded in agreement, that wouldn't count for anything except one persons opinion. If three or five or more say the same thing, it might actually get changed. Think of it as a poll.

I came on this morning and under my name "welcome painted Jester" I used to click and it would take me to a page and I could click "control panel" and continue with my posts now it say's "your notifications" and Im having to scroll all over to find Control panel! Its like its getting more complicated and too many things being added that do the same thing!!! Seems their fixing things that worked great And making it worse. Like if "1 P.C.V." works good on a car lets "ADD 3 MORE" !!!!!!

Chris

COBALT: Its too dark!!!!!!!!

Ok, just figured out the difference between "Contact" and "Friends". Apparently anyone can be added to contacts but for friends, you have to send a request to add them. Hello Hotrodders Facebook . I apparently sent out a few requests while trying to add people to the friends list, so if you got one from me, feel free to add or not add.
