Don't Panic!

Many of you may be shocked at our first major style change since 1998.

Frankly, that civil defense yellow was hard to read text on. It only took me 14 years to figure out.

At this rate I will soon have a first class web site.

No seriously, it was hard to read.

I used the color because I wanted the web site to always be bright and shocking when it loaded up in the browser but after 14 years I decided I'd rather make it more readable.

Apologies to all who preferred the previous color scheme, obviously the product of somebody with severe Aspergers.

You waited the start of WWW III to do that, Tex? Lol.

I loved the yellow. Please bring it back.

this is because of that article you read about Kaboom cereal, isn't it?

Heh, I used Stylish to remove the yellow, so I never had a problem with it :)

I also liked the original better.

Loved the yellow. It was like a sign of warning. With the dark print I found it very readable. I vote bring it back.

I dunno Cleve. The black-on-mustard was an acceptable high-contrast colour scheme. Combined with the default blogger sans-serif font at a reasonable size you had a clean look and feel with good readability.

Black-on-white is an equally good combination, but the new courier font is notoriously hard to read walls of text in.

Presumably you've gone with Courier because of it's wide cross-platform support. For equally wide support and better readability I'd urge you to go back to Arial or Helvetica.

Cleve, I'm guessing you've gone with Courier as the font because of it's great cross-platform support.

I'd urge you to consider Arial or Helvetica instead. Equally good cross-platform support, and far better readability for walls of text.
