A small personal poll for the community

As you may have noticed, i use a lighter font color in my posts, and that is because depending on my ambient lightning i find it hard to read the normal color in consequence of my photophobia.

But some people came to me saying that the color i use gives them headache. So i am here to ask you guys if anyone finds any problem on the use of my font color. Feel free to say anything about it, if you think that it's bad for the forum pattern, that it is ugly, anything, please i need your opinion so i can do the best for all of us. :)

Do you or do you not get bothered with it?

I for myself don't have any problems with it. Might be a bit bright for someone's tastes but not for me.

Actually I think it's rather great to have somebody that uses something different. Makes the forums more "colorful"
When there's option for something, it's meant for using it. :rolleyes:

Whenever I see your posts I have a strong headache and I almost always puke. :puke:

I guess the color combination and contrast is too strong for my brain. 8)

Thank you for your honesty and sorry for all your puking. I shall provide you as soon as it's possible with a load of buckets and towels :P Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about the bad breath that girls could complain of... :gangster:

I'm kidding, i'm really glad that you've been honest and i am sorry for causing discomfort to you, but I'll wait for more answers before doing any change, because the usual color gives ME headaches...

I did some research on color palettes to choose a matching color and found this as the best option (#a8b9b5), it is practically part of the forum's palette, and i've even realized that it is almost the same color as hovered links... But if it's really bothering for some people, i'll just keep on the usual...

The standard color is easier to read, but I have no problems with it.

Edit: Pink is actually not bad. :evil:
