How to change personal colour-scheme of skilltrainingcomplete site?

Asked by [ Moderator ] , Edited by D. Sneckner, J.D. [ Editor ]

The site has had a very nice upgrade. Pretty graphics and everything. But I am colour-blind and some options are impossible for me to see!

I have to press CTRL-A to "highlight" the whole screen to find the "Add Comment" link, and to read the output of the answers and questions I write. There are probably other options I can't see but have just not yet noticed that they are missing!

Let me know if you find anything else that is hard to read. We’ll fix the ‘add comment’ link.

The summary block on the recent activity screen is difficult to read (light fore and back colours), when I mouse-over other people’s comments (maybe for vote up) the text disappears (light fore and back colours), one of my questions has more than a 1000 views and I can’t see the 1K number (dark fore and back colours), and when a question has 0 answers I can not see the zero (dark fore and back colours).

Hovering over comments is also dificult to read. Light gray text on slightly darker background makes for very little contrast.

A new set of changes has gone in. Can you review and see if we’ve missed anything?

I can not find a question with zero answers, so I can not test that change just now, but all the other changes are excellent and work well. I can not find any other areas that might need colour changes.

When editing a post, the link to go back is black on black bacground.

Now that the site is upgraded and we got yet another color scheme, there’s at least one issue I see already – comments to original post are gray on gray background. Not totally invisible but definitely unreadable.

Also – how can I link my non-twitter and twitter accounts?

@aragaer I don’t think you can, but if you have any problems logging into your old non-twitter account email me at thelsdj@gmail.com and I’ll get it fixed.

Should be fixed, let me know if you notice anything else.

Thanks DarinaS for pointing out a problem I've had for years. One third of all men have some form of color blindness and game engineers use red and green colors to distiguish between good guys and bad! For this reason alone I HATE PvP and can't play any first person shooter games. I've tried playing with the contrast on my screen, which can help,..but aside of getting new retinas,....

You’ll be mining for decades to make the money for new retinas! :) To be honest, PVP in Eve isn’t affected by my colour-vision so badly… the only times colours are involved is when you need to tell whether a ship is just target locked you, or actively shooting, and those two colours are clear for me. If there are other colour distinctions in Eve, then I’ve managed to get on without noticing them.

I believe this shouldn’t be a huge issue if you set up your overview correctly (meaning only neuts or hostiles on overview). Don’t get me wrong, I see that it can be problematic, but there are workarounds in place for most color related problems. I am not color blind so I may be way off. I do believe we have color blind ppl in corp that PvP well, though…

Btw, there is in fact research going on into injecting something into people’s retinas to “cure” colour blindness.

I’m also colourblind and I don’t want it :P. However, for pvp, its useful to make things flashy.

Yah,..been set to flashy, that’s been a life saver. Believe it or not, blue for alliance mate and black for war dec in the local channels are hard for me to distiguish. perhaps my glsses need cleaning also.

Also: quoted text is light font on light background, very hard to read.

I haven’t seen that recently, so I thought it was fixed. Maybe there just hasn’t been any quotes or code inserted to answers for a while.

darinas

Hmmm. Dunno why I missed that question… not that I have an answer for it, but I like to keep my eye on things :) Yup. The colour of the quote is bad.

Another colour scheme problem – when re-tagging, the drop-down list has light text on light background, which is unreadable unless mouse-overed.

This has bee reported to the designer, waiting on fixes.
