Hi guys, I've been a fan of your site since I became a lurker in 2001 in the aftermath of Sept 11th and recently, I've found a problem. When I search for something, using the built in search function,, I can't read what the results are and I don't know if it's because of my colour blindness but the title of the thread is simply invisible to me, i'm vaguely aware of their being a colour there but not enough to make out letters. The website address itself is plainly visible, despite being pretty small and then the snippet of the OP we're given issts, p st obviously words but I can't really read it, it sort of bleeds into the background.

I haven't had my colour blindness tested since the 80's but back then it didn't fit inoto any of the categories back then, it kinda hovered around 3 of them.

I tried the black/white flip and the problem persisted, I tried making the screen onn my smartphone negative, it didn't help. In the end only selecting the text works. Sio it's not the end of the world, I just thought you might like to know...

The search function is used to separate those with reptilian eyes vs human eyes. You passed the test.

Been that way since I started coming here...

It is always frustrating to hear people complain about others not using the search function when it's horribly antiquated and illegible.

About all you can do is left click like you were going to cut and paste and scroll. Yes everything is Too light/white.

The search function has always been a bit of a pain to use going on 13+ years. Go to Google or Bing and search through there, you get better results that are also readable.

When I do do it, I just hit select all to highlight the whole page...

Yes, it's impossible to read otherwise.

Use Google or Duck-Duck-go search with question, thread title etc...put a SLASH(/)ATS after and all things here will pop up there.

*Searching here has been wonky for years especially after some restructuring...and it's not for lack of ATS trying to fix for everyone on every device worldwide.

Do simple search elsewhere-slash ATS.

Ive had the same hard to read results, I checked...but for 3-4 yrs now, a great majority of membership use other search engines/ATS

I seems to be designed for the light skin (theme), not the dark one.
