Yes, and the text is gray! Really? Have the designers ever heard of a little thing called contrast, and its relation to legibility?

Lena, 

I had already responded to this once with a screenshot, but it has entirely disappeared from the thread.  I've checked every single page to see if the new forum had "moved" it, but it's simply gone.  Hopefully, the forum gods don't zap it again, considering I'm responding to a direct request from actual UW staff.

That is the screen I see for replies.  No grey background.  There is a border box for the reply section.  However, this is exactly how the forum looks outside of replies as well.  It is entirely white background, no division whatsoever, which is glaringly bright.  I use Google Chrome, latest version, all updates completed, and before a mod can say it... I've already cleaned my darn cache.  (HA, in before the canned spam).

 

I realize this is small compared to the myriad bugs and glitches, but it is an issue, and I know I'm not alone.  I appreciate you looking into it and thank you for showing concern for us blind folks.  Smiley Happy

Kathryn, it's grey - very light grey so on most screens people won't see any difference. It's #ffffff for the container and #f9f9f9 for the typing box and forum background. But it's barely noticeable on my monitor and I'm on a good-quality calibrated IPS display. It's quite bright, and the technical division of white / grey doesn't really matter for the UX.

Exactly.  My monitor is awesome, as I purchased it with the sole purpose of being able to distinguish shades better (3d graphic art nerd, I NEED my distinctions in order to set lighting properly), but the difference is so negligible that it may as well not exist.

In my notification feed, I can see the usernames of everybody permanently. When I use the search function, I can see usernames briefly when results are returned.

 

Please fix this.

Hi Ela,

We are aware of this issue and are working to fix it as soon as possible.

Thanks.

These are such glaringly basic issues that I am truly disappointed.  This is what testing is for.  You test before you release.  You offer a beta test site access to select individuals.  You find the bugs FIRST, especially the big ones like actual user names being shown.

 

I'm sorry, there are plenty of changes I have liked in the past.  This one, so far, is a complete wash for me.  Far too many bugs that should have been discovered through beta testing; a design that is far too obvious in its flaws.

 

Here's hoping that the next update shows some serious improvements.

Great points, Kathryn. But why actually beta test when you can get 50 FLs complaining about things in great detail within minutes of going live? I don't know if people have been picking up on this, but as with most things, we are the beta test.

Why are usernames still visible ? This version should be taken down, there's nothing to 'fix'.
