    You can always type in bold for a darker font. Kinda a PITA but a possibility.

    Find myself wondering what kind of screens, screen brightness or resolution those who are complaining about the grey text must be using... 🤷‍♂️

    My iPad is 13”, so I can use the “desktop” display (with the right hand column, including Quick Links etc.). The compressed “mobile” display on smaller screens, or at higher zoom levels, is definitely pesky (less than optimal). Especially since the text is quite small, and zooming it in using tools or preferences settings almost always forces the compressed display mode (even on desktops, depending on the zoom level).

    It’s the hate for the grey text that I don’t really understand. Seems like a very minor quibble. 🤷‍♂️

    It's not a complaint or a quibble...They asked about suggestions and opinions and we are giving them.

    Sweet, those are great for Windows clustering. You just need 200 of them to equal a smartphone.

  • We are listening, but we are not making daily changes to the format here. I have a meeting later this week to discuss the forum and these requests will be brought up. Thank you all for the helpful suggestions.

    Thank you @CarlJacobson_POLK for the update and for goin' to bat for the forum (which I hope is still seen as a value-add to the Powers that Be for the brand!).

    Carl, you want to help, then please do something about this horrible format.

    I'm typing in BOLD, so that it's easier to read.

    If you guys would like some extra help, there are a couple/few trustworthy guys here you could temporarily hire for zero salary to work with Polk/SU to make changes.

    You are losing new customers due to the piss poor customer service and now you're losing old customers due to this piss poor format. Why this isn't evident to the higher up folks at Sound United defies comprehension. I mean, getting and keeping customers is business 101!!!

    Thanks for listening to us but the changes we are asking for shouldn't need a meeting to accomplish. Changes to text colors and sizes could be made in just a few minutes by someone who has a little knowledge of CSS and HTML. All we are asking for is a forum that doesn't hurt your eyes to read it. There are other glitches in the way the forum operates but all that can wait. Just get the text changed so we don't have to strain to read it.... pleaseeeeee.
