Have the colours of the forum page changed for anybody else?

The green is now bright pea green and the grey background to some parts has disappeared.

And the font of the title of the thread has altered. 🤨

    Same here, I thought it was my browser software having an off day.

    Yes, I've just noticed that @pansyface, it's changed from earlier today.

    Oh thank heavens it’s not me. I was sure I’d put the hex on it.

    It’s much harder to read and differentiate the parts of the page.

    Let’s hope that it’s just Boris having a laugh and that it will go back to normal.

    Changed for me too.  I'll have to look at the site a bit more before passing judgement on the changes.
    Edited to add - after a quick look through the forums my only negative comment is that border around each post could be made clearer, just thicker lines would do it.  Other than that I quite like the new colour scheme.

    God it’s hellish.

    The black on the green is almost unreadable for me.

    and our various contributions to the thread all merge into one.

    And I’m sure the typeface is much thinner and less bold than before.  I just spent £1,700 on some new specs and I’m struggling.

    Same here pansyface. Perhaps the powers that be are saving money on ink.  :/ My text is grey instead of black too. 
    Wouldn't it have been nice if they had warned members?

    Apart from saving me the panic of thinking that I’d buggered up my ipad, I don’t think a warning would have helped much.

    The last time there was a major revamp of the forum I got suspended as a troublemaker for saying that I couldn’t read things so I’d better shut me gob now.

    Bye for now. I’m off to pull up some dandelions.

    I’ve a feeling one of the early ‘faces’ of the forum looked a bit like this … I wonder if there’s some work going on that’s necessitated a temporary ‘reset’ or whatever?

    Just turned my laptop off to restart it thinking I had done something stupid as usual. 
    Obviously came back the same green and then saw the posts above. At least it wasn't me for once. Panic over. Can't say I like the new set up.
