I've been away for several days, and thus have returned to the site changes.

I was one of the ones asked to test the beta. site ...................... and my major complaint was the brightness of the background.

The pale grey is better than the first stark white colour ................... but i still find it far too bright.

It is most uncomfortable, especially for long term use.

And, I fear that GR and "the team" have paid no attention to all the complaints about it while we were stiil testing the beta site last week.

Old eyes are old eyes ............. and young people (ie, the programmers and developers) should pay attention to comments made by the people who have used this site for many years.

Unfortunately I renewed my sub just a few weeks ago, in the belief that the problems were being solved.

Problems with the site being solved doesn't help if I find the site very difficult to use.

for those who have not seen it - this was on the announcements board on 2 Aug

"Thank you for taking the time to send us your feedback on the new design. There has been a lots of positive feedback, but we have also identified that lots of members, particularly those who spend a lot of time on the boards, are finding the background a bit too bright.

We are, at this moment in time, reviewing the text colour, size and background. We have listened to your feedback and will be deciding what changes should be made over the next couple of days. Please be patient, all changes, however minor, need thorough implementation and testing.

We will keep you updated with progress and will inform you of changes we are making. "

I was told that by Phil Moir before last weekend, ie around the 24/25th

so they have been "considering" it for days and days.

I can see yet another series of complaint emails being sent re the background colour!
