[PROPOSAL] Search term highlight color change

A failed experiment whereby board users were invited to advise the Senate, and instead attempted to replace the Senate.

[PROPOSAL] Search term highlight color change

Post by Tolya » 2008-12-09 05:59am

This is a minor thing, but I found it a bit irritating that search terms get highlighted with bright yellow which makes them unreadable (at least on the default board style).

Maybe changing the color would be a good idea, or just change the color of the letters not the background itself? White + yellow does not compute.

Seconded, it is extremely annoying to read a post when it is highlighted in bright yellow.

Perhaps a darker colour may help?

You can just go up to the url and delete &hilit= and whatever's after that.

For example: this versus this.

A Government founded upon justice, and recognizing the equal rights of all men; claiming higher authority for existence, or sanction for its laws, that nature, reason, and the regularly ascertained will of the people; steadily refusing to put its sword and purse in the service of any religious creed or family is a standing offense to most of the Governments of the world, and to some narrow and bigoted people among ourselves.

While this change would please me, its hardly a major issue.

Question asked & answered.

EDIT: There is a "Report Board Software Problems" thread.

Something about Libertarianism always bothered me. Then one day, I realized what it was:
Libertarian philosophy can be boiled down to the phrase, "Work Will Make You Free."

In Libertarianism, there is no Government, so the Bosses are free to exploit the Workers.
In Communism, there is no Government, so the Workers are free to exploit the Bosses.
So in Libertarianism, man exploits man, but in Communism, its the other way around!
