    Dear BHW users,
    I understand that you like to use white/yellow font in your posts to make it fancier. But please keep in mind that some BHW users use white layout instead of the default black one.

    Now you might say: "Then change to black layout, newbie". But the reason i'm using white layout is because i'm learning IM at work and it's less noticeable if i have a light layout website opened (attracts less attention).

    If you use light gray, white or yellow fonts, then it's pretty much unreadable an i have to press "ctrl+a" in order to read the text. if you could find a neutral font that works on both layouts, that would be great :)

    No, the "e" and "t" is almost unreadable.

    Black Light vB4 for life. That and hiding the circa 2008 logo with uBlock.

    Whenever I see white text, I simply scroll past. Haven't missed anything of value yet.

    In summary, quit fucking whining.

    I didn't mean to insult you, sorry.
    And i am doing my work and being productive for them, i just sometimes have time to read BHW and get valuable information about IM as it's a subject i'm interested in.

    Maybe you should stop wasting your employers time and money, and get on with the job you are being paid for.

    Greetings!

    My job is Tasks-based. Once my tasks are done i wait about 10-30 minutes to get new ones, this is the time i use to be online researching IM. Thid does not impact on my productivity as i have mentioned in this thread already. Even with my free time it's not professional to be visiting such sites so i hide it. Hope this clears things up. Sorry for not mentioning this in this original thread post.

    As a much loved member here, I find that very insulting. Are you saying you are too good for us?

    No i don't think i'm better than any of you. It's just that it's unprofessional to visit other sites at my workplace, not specifically BHW.

    I just wanna know your expectations before you made this thread.

    Did you really expect that 737,556 people would go out of their way to change the font of every post they make every day for the rest of your life just to make you happy?

    If you have a problem with reading with the white layout, make a thread here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f26-forum-suggestions-feedback/
    It seems the forum automatically changes the color of people who use the white layout to black.

    Maybe they can code something that does that for everyone. So white users automatically see black and black see light grey. Diamond Damiens a smart guy. He must be aware that white users have this problem. I'm assuming he didn't do anything about it cause .... money? IDK. I just know that would be a smarter way to approach the issue.

    Pretty sure OP doesn't do SEO for clients for his day job. If he did,they wouldn't mind him keeping BHW opened on a tab.
