Post subject:  Bulletin Board colours

Hi,
can I put in a request for the phpBB manager to change some of the text/background colours to make them visible.
Dark blue text on black background is almost impossible to read and I've just discovered that above the "View new posts" text is a line written in dark grey. My monitors are set up for Photoshopping so the luminance is about 24% and not eye-burning white like Dell sets them up. Maybe there's lots of other stuff written into the blackness that I've not seen but it would be nice to see it if it is there.
I can't find a way of doing this in the phpBB control box and Firefox can do a global change which makes a nonsense of every other web site colour scheme.
Moan over,
Cheers for now
Eb Swarbrick

P.S. It also amazes me that Astro Mags display the night sky as black voids with dark blue or dark grey text which can only be read under a bright white light. Why?? Am I missing something??

Eb appreciate what you are saying and I'll give it some thought, but in the mean time I'm sure you know what colour a cup of tea should look like. :)

So your're on Tea Duty 1st March!
