Website coloration

Postby Mojo » Mon Mar 04, 2013 3:10 am

I find it very difficult to look at the yellow text of Dharma Wheel on top of the yellow background. I think perhaps changing the lettering to red would make it easier too look at while preserving the current theme.

Make your browser pane wider or your font size smaller and the yellow "Dharma Wheel" will *magically* be on a red background.

I browse pretty much just from my Android device. Funny thing is, this morning the colors over at Dhamma Wheel, which I thought were fine before, are now blue and white for me. This site has remained the same.

You may not have much choice over how it displays, then ... practice equanimity? :shrug:

A temporary change while they experiment with some software changes, apparently. Visit their Suggestion Box to learn more if you want.

I browse from my desktop PC.
That blue looks cold.
I am used to seeing avatars on the left side.
I hope phpBB is replaced by a DharmaWheel logo.

The Chinese characters are Fo (buddha) and Ming (bright). The image is of a student of Buddhism, who, imagining himself to be a monk, and not understanding the true meaning of the words takes the sound of the words literally. Likewise, People on web forums sometime seem to be foaming at the mouth.

I like the old golden "Dharmawheel" letters on greenish yellow ground. Looks good. And there is no need for me to read it in white or red, because i know on which site i am right now. :smile:

I think the blue is more calming.

Maybe it is not because of the colour, but i know a blue forum. It's so calm, nobody has written there for months. :namaste:
I always felt like in a swimming-pool there. :smile:

I prefer this set of colors than the light blue I saw a few days ago.
It was too bright for the eyes and made reading difficult!
And yes! That shade of blue looked cold!!!! :alien:
Now, everything looks good again! :smile:
