Light blue text on a white background!

Come on Blackberry couldn't you make these forums less user friendly?

Re: Light blue text on a white background!

Because I'm trying to read this forum on my Playbook.  Does it matter more than the op question?

Oh, sorry, I didn't address your question.

Re: Light blue text on a white background!

It's a strain on my eyes as well... but we've been through that whole debate before and lost.

 

Anyway, it is better than it was for a period of time.

Re: Light blue text on a white background!

Yep, certainly not the best way to show off the PlayBook.  This PB is the first Blackberry product I've owned and I'm really impressed with it from a hardware/software point of view.  It's obvious that RIM knows how to build great tablet pc's.  Now their support forum is pretty pathetic if they expect PB users to access it.  Why the huge banner on the top? Why the silly text color?  

 

RIM could learn from those who came before when it comes to paying attention to the end user experience.  IBM knew how to do this kind of stuff. 

 

Surely critical postings, with the view to bettering the enduser's experienced should  be welcomed not written off by such nonsense, as ... you should have seen how bad it used to be.  

 

Frankly, RIM is really up against the wall these days and should welcome critiques and do some thoughtful thinking about implementing those with merit.

 

Cheers.

And that's why I directed you to the proper section to post this complaint in... the admins and community managers should/will see it there. They rarely browse the help sections looking for forum improvement suggestions. But, you apparently thought your initial question was more important than being placed in the proper area. Scroll and review.  Smiley Wink

 

And yea, it's been discussed and argued and they have been made aware that this color scheme is less than appealing, but those of us who didn't like it were overruled in favor of the change. And the top banner? Oh, don't get me started! You should've seen it before when it covered EVEN MORE real estate up top. And that took about 6-7 months just to get it shrunk to the size it is now. We've accepted mediocrity in deference to the former horrible layout.

 

If you think your complaint is worth the community managers seeing it... ask a moderator to move this thread to the Community Feedback area.

Re: Light blue text on a white background!

PS: earlier I was about to ask a moderator to move it anyway, as I would normally, but after you objected... I felt it was your thread to post where you wanted.
