You know, i don't consider myself old. I don't have vision problems. but when i look at this site now, generally speaking, i find it very difficult to read.
Oh, the buttons and headers and footers and advertising banners and other assorted tags are quite large and prominently displayed. i can read them just fine. and yeah, they load up faster, i suppose.
but as for the textual content? the very reason i actually come here? well now i've gotta freakin' squint and move closer to the screen.
sure i could roll my zoom button and magnify the entire page. but that makes it even more unpleasant.
and that's what it really comes down to. this new layout, this lack of usability, is downright unpleasant.
i'm not even talking about the garish color. If it was just that, I could accept it as someone else's personal taste. not mine, but hey whatever.
Im talking about the general difficulty in navigating around between threads and forums, and the specific unreadability of the tiny light content text in striking conflict with the huge monochromatic site framework and incomprehensibly large amounts of whitespace.
it's just too much.
so, with that, i'm randomizing my password to prevent my popping in out of habit. Coming here has become un-fun.
peace, I'm out.
