    By default, the color scheme of BHW is white font and gold links on a black background. If you're anything like me, you probably spend a lot of time on BHW reading and reading. I'm no doctor, but I can tell you reading white on black is seriously NOT good for the eyes. You most probably already experience having trouble reading on BHW after an hour or two. Your eyes get tired. More so for longer posts. Or is it just me? :eek:

    Here's a quick tip you might want to consider to avoid straining your eyes while on BHW. Whenever you're about to read a long post or a long thread:

    ~ Scroll down to the bottom of the page and find the Quick Style Chooser drop-down list. If you're on the default theme, it should look like the image below:
    [​IMG]

    ~ Click on the drop-down list and select Default Style. This will load the white background with black font, which makes reading much easier.
    Happy reading!

    That's great! Plus rep for you OP. I was just thinking last night about how all my BHW reading was straining my eyes.

    This is why I doze in my computer chair or just jump to my bed right from my PC :)

    Eye strain leads to dizziness to sleep :)

    The defult style reminds me of DP and also the navigation on the black and gold is better.

    AND you should not spend more than two hours in any forum because that's why most
    people FAIL at IM because too much reading and not enough action.

    This is not an attack JUST some friendly advice:cool:

    Huge walls of text -> notepad ++ -> calibre convert to mobi -> kindle.

    that's how you not strain your eyes :p

    So true. BHW is addictive, one must use it wisely or you'll only end up with a lot of ideas and completely broke. ;)

    WOW! Who would have thought one of the most useful threads would be SO simple. This is fantastic and my tired overworked eyes are very grateful!

    I feel "OLD Blackhat World Style" better for my eyes. Coz corbon background color of posts doesn't stress much on eyes.
