What's with all the size 1 print now? There's lots of old timers on here that have a hard time reading the small stuff. Skywheelrider, you were the first to go that way. I used to read all your posts but now I skim through them because it's hard to concentrate. Come on guys. Give us old guys a break. We're interested in what you have to say. Please?

It is also respectful to break your posts into paragraphs. A sticky should me made with such guidelines, but I ain't no anglish teacher, I'm a carny.

MCW editor should be able to handle it.

Sixcat,

You have with out a doubt spoken for many of us. It's embarrassing to keep asking my kids to read those posts to me.

Please, no small print

I would also ask that the quotes be made bigger...............

My glasses are thick enough now to qualify as coke bottles...........

Since the subject has been broached I would like to request that bright colors not be used, bright colors look good on rides but reading, especially small print, is extremely difficult.

This is difficult to read for me

I am not color blind but like many people I have what they call a color deficiency, so when you mix colors together (in print) it makes it difficult to read too.

Even red is a problem.

If you highlight that yellow it's easy to read.

I just choose a colour and font, not a size. I chose red and a different font so my posts would not look just like everyone elses. I can skip the font, though, I guess. No offense towards anyone, but no one has complained before, that I can recall anyways. But lately, it seems like a lot of complaining is going on....size of print (my name is mentioned), someone else complains about individual post totals (gee, I have the most at MCW), someone else complains about folks using the phrase "thanks for sharing," (gee, I use that phrase a lot) etc. That time of the year, huh? Oh well, in a few short weeks I will be back to work and hardly posting anymore.

I have 20/20 vision with no corrective lenses, and still had hell reading that yellow.

I see your point, Chris, but everyone in this thread has approached it politely, and asked face to face (as much as you can on the board), and it seemed like the nicest way it could be approached. What more can they do, if you want to be read?
