I am also light do not like it either...


MR_MAGOO Report 3 Aug 2012 22:48

Just a suggestion......if you use a laptop you could tilt the screen away from you. It makes the screen a light blue (on mine anyway). :-)


Huia Report 3 Aug 2012 22:35

No, it isnt fixed, the w is faint and a different shape again (wider?).


Huia Report 3 Aug 2012 05:06

They seem to have fixed the w now. Yippee!!!


Huia Report 3 Aug 2012 02:55

Has anybody else noticed that the lower case w appears to be fainter or in a different sort of type from the other letters, or is it just a trick of my eyes/brain?

Every time a new look appears GR seems to reduce the size of the font. I think I complained last time. I dont want to keep increasing the size for this site, leaving it too big on other sites. :-(

Dear All


Hope you are okay.

It has taken all week to log and get on the GR site.

Many error messages, could not open PM's and then to put a crown on it. the GR board is not wearing clothes........starkers!

When I finally logged on successfully, I could not believe the new look.

Really glaring on the eyes.

Not a happy bunny.

And still getting error messages.

Take gentle care all
Best wishes
Elizabeth, EOS

I have to admit I do not have my tree on here I took it off many years ago, so that part I cannot comment on......

Im one of the lucky ones at the moment because I dont seem to be having probs, apart from every now and then I have to login more than once..... :-)

Hope it all gets better for you that are having problems apart from Merlin LOLOL ;-)

JBA Im with you, I love it too, :-D :-D


SimonSez Report 2 Aug 2012 01:31

Your right there Kay GR never listen and just do their own thing anyway regardless.

I'm absolutely shocked, this is the worst ever change.It looks horrid, morbid and plain boring.

Why are they always messing around with this sites appearence.

Wasting our breath. just got to accept this rubbish thats forced on us.

:-D :-D :-D :-D.

RR, for those that pop in now and again it's awful, I can assure you. Why fix something that ain't broke ?!?!?


WhiffingSiggs Report 1 Aug 2012 23:18

New look, rubbish.


Kay???? Report 1 Aug 2012 23:13

Nah Joy,,,GR cant be seen to take influence from elsewhere or it may be seen as poaching good iideas,

Beige colourings backgrounds are easy reading with text on it,,,,,plus it can take most colours for a text contrast......this teal /greeny on here can be missed as it hasnt got enough umph to make it stand out,,,,,,,and its where most of the important bit about GR will be found ,,,,,like guidelines,,,!


Joy Report 1 Aug 2012 23:03

Too white and bright definitely.

In feedback about the beta version, I asked them to look at
I wonder if they did.


Kay???? Report 1 Aug 2012 23:03

Ive just been in and toned my screen colouring down a tad,,,,,glare has gone and its looking much better........sort of a very pale -ish green.grey,,,,,
and text is a little better to read,,,,,,,

plus it has made very little difference if any to other sites in contrast.....

perhaps having a little fiddle about can solve a few troubles...till GR can get a good combination sorted,,,,,,,

;-) ;-)


MR_MAGOO Report 1 Aug 2012 22:56

Would agree that it is too bright but other than that no problem.

As i don't have a tree on here can't comment on that subject.

Have posted a thread about the previous change........nothing changes.
