On article Just deployed: New forums system (699 comments in total)

I woke up this morning and turned on the computer and linked to dpreview. I sat there looking at it for ten minutes - I then started pinching myself. Am I still dreaming?

In reply to:

Mark H: One huge problem, completely omitted here, but that really needs to be dealt with...

The 'camera' forums are meant to be the place to go to discuss 'cameras' - but they are absolutely plagued with posts by people simply sharing their latest photos, holiday snaps, birds, etc, and people using the forums like some kind of social networking/facebook facility.

Unfortunately, the new/easier 'direct upload of images into forum posts', whilst welcome for 'camera/technical' discussions, is likely to only encourage even greater amounts of 'look at my latest snaps' type posts.

There desperately needs to be a separate/parallel set of brand based 'photo-sharing' forums - so the 'camera' forums can be rid of people's nauseating holiday snaps, pets, etc.

I'd be very interested to see how many agree with me - so please click the 'LIKE' on this message if you do.

Above each forum there is a VIEW tab giving three choices -
1, All Threads.
2, Exclude threads with images.
3. Only threads with images.

Speaking for myself; the new posting panel looks good. I see that there is a spell-check added - nice. I also see that the text is a light grey on white. Some of the news websites that I used to visit had change from black text to light grey text on white - because of that I moved on to other news websites. I understand that the grey text on white looks smooth, but it is harder to read.

The blue text on the black background is a headache to read - BUT, what I am seeing now is harder to read - The grey text on the black background. Am I going blind?

For me, the dark blue text with the black background is harder to read than the yellow text. the yellow is brighter. Maybe a brighter blue text would be better.
