Normal size, unless to make a statement and shout.
Scrolling through one message is not my forte.

Black: Normal size unless part of it is for emphasis. I actually have a hard time reading shades of red but that's my problem. I set my screen resolution and colors to compensate for any font color issues.

BTW: I set the screen resolution and color scheme in Windows and not through the boards.

Take care,
Mike

Default Poll: What Color Do You Prefer?

With all respect to RD, I think blue is the easiet to read. But
I like to try all of them. They're fun. I also think the large print is easiest to read. Love you all, no matter what size you print!

Large type, in bold if possible, in blue or black, although the colors are fun too. Since I usually get to the boards late at night...that's my preference.

As you probably know, PURPLE is my favourite colour, so of course, I picked violet. I tried Indigo, which is a darker purple, but it looked too much like black. I find the smaller print too hard to read, so I change mine to LARGE. I hope nobody thinks I'm yelling!
I think it's fun to see everyone's different colours and fonts!

[b] To me the violet looks pink, and after seeing some of the responces, I think I like a bolded normal now. I think the yellow & white choices could be removed from the list.I accidentally clicked on the white, and it thought I broke Cruisemates! I do like the blue & red too!

I just like the plain black EXCEPT when I want to emphacize something.

Bold black letters with the normal size font. This would be like our names are on the side of our post. Occasionally, I will use a color for emphasis.

I have a suggestion for people. Try setting your screen resolution to something different. If it is at 1600 x 1200 try 1280 x 1024. Or if it's 1024 x 768 try the next setting lower. It will make the type larger. It may help.

Just an idea.

Take care,
Mike

Y2C has a good point. If all of you posted a larger font, it would be a pita to read. Too much to scrool.
Just my thought.

I'm with Mgram on this one, just plain text unless the colour or size is aptly used for emphasis.

Plain black normal size with use of bold for emphasis. Just my two cents worth. I have to agree with Steve that it is sometimes aggravating to have to scroll an entire page to read one post. Have no problem with the larger type, just giving my opinion.

The easiest on the eyes is non-bold black. Personally I prefer reading normal-sized print.

That said, I don't mind when people occasionally post in color, or when those who have trouble reading normal-sized type post in larger font. It's not like they're writing a novel--that much I would definitely object to! But I do think if everyone posted that way, it would soon become ANNOYING. [/color]

On another board, one of the posters is nearly blind and always posts in all-caps. Some of us post back to him in caps so he can read it without too much difficulty. Of course, every so often a newcomer who doesn't know the situation pops in to scold us for shouting!

Personally, I like the default font and color. RD, I know you LOVE purple, and I can still read your posts, but the color seems to "blend" with the white background . I also find anything in yellow or orange very difficult to read.

Actually, I like Luanne's font color, but the size is a bit too big .

It is nice to have a choice if you want to emphasize something

Hi,
I prefer regular black and normal size, too. What I'm reading right now, seems too small to me. I tried to change the font size butdon't know how to do it. Notice the program marks.

Many men, especially, are color blind and have a hard time picking up green and red colors. That is why we're told to use black markers for flip charts,etc.

However, bright colors are a nice change for emphasis.
Interestingly enough, my new boss has changed the newsletter font to all lower case after my former boss had it in caps for 28 years. She tends to think that all caps is hard to read, as everything looks like squares.(It is a retirement community).

I think most of our posts are fine if we don't go to one extreme or another. I enjoy reading them. Having said that, the yellow and light blue are a bit hard to see. Lynne

That's much better for me--my last post, although it now is back to normal in the box, and I'm reading my text in smaller font again. Lynne
Luanne, I'm sure you'll find the right combination for you!

I've decided to tone down the purple and use it just for my name. I'll use default (black) for the rest, but I'll continue to enlarge the print, because it seems most of you (myself included!) have trouble reading the smaller print!
That being said, don't be surprised if you see me post in orange for Halloween, red and green for Christmas, red for Valentine's Day, and green for St. Patrick's Day! What's the use of having colour options if you can't have fun with them?

Donna:

Gee: It looks like it's 14 to 6 that prefer the normal sized font.

Take care,
Mike

Donna, I also like the larger font. I'm young and my eyes are fine, but they get tired just like anyone elses.

To each his or her own. It's personality Have a great day!
