Gaaah! Colored text!

Do we need all this colored text? Some people use it constantly. It strains your eyes and makes them sound like a serial killer.

Why do we need it?

If you think this is annoying, then voice your opinion!

Re: Gaaah! Colored text!

I only know of 3 people that use colored text and one doesn't even post anymore.

Re: Gaaah! Colored text!

HERE WE GO AGAIN!

Seriously, this is the only forum that even brings it up, let alone complains about it. Why don't you guys fix your eye sight instead of making us stop doing something we want.

Re: Gaaah! Colored text!

People like Princess_Zelda, or whatever, only speak using colored text. It practically gives me a migrane when I try to read their posts, and my eyes don't strain easily.

I used to too and this is the only site that mentioned it, let alone complained.

Re: Gaaah! Colored text!

Why don't you just not read those posts? If you care so much take the 2 seconds to highlight it. There's only what? Three people in the Universe (excuse the horrible pun) that can't handle it? Let people be themselves.

Yes, I rainbow'd to be an ass.

Re: Gaaah! Colored text!

It takes significantly less than 5 seconds to highlight. Why skip a post instead of highlighting?

I didn't know the highlighting trick.

I feel dumb, now.

Double clicking only highlights one word though. To highlight the whole sentence you need to drag the mouse.

Re: Gaaah! Colored text!

The only annoying text is red and blue, because neither are particularly readable on any skin.

Yeah sure, if you want to do it one word at a time. Clicking and dragging with the mouse works better, as does Ctrl+A.

Re: Gaaah! Colored text!

Thanks, Renee, I'll try that, as, in my opinion, it's easier than highliting for me.

I love how this has turned into an advice thread on how to highlight text.
