It's why I try to use the BB code colors only when trying to really draw attention to a word or phrase in my post. Some colors don't work well with our green backgrounds. Now it's just a green border making it easier to read but still.

I agree some of the colors if reading on my phone are downright annoying. However when on my computer I just use my mouse to highlight the text.

I have to agree with FiFi LaJolie, Draco Burnz and PollTBowBuff.
But it clearly doesnt bother me even nearly as much since I genuinely cant be bothered to read them.
Why would people do it? Because they are assholes. What other reason could there be?
Those blue posts by PollTBowBuff are an exception since it is a very good way of making his point

Lel, I didn't read them. But Dracz 'translated' so yeah. Cannot disagree constant use of such is, in my view, deliberate trolling.

Will Jagex do anything about it? We'll have to wait and see. It's been flagged to them so the ball is in their court.

I think it's a basic matter of usability. Suggesting that people highlight text or use extensions to get around a design flaw isn't exactly going to encourage more people to use the official forums. Would be interested in hearing from people who do post in a colour other than the default (dark or light) to find out what value they feel it adds, though. Low on bank space? Click here.

Also it's a pain in the ass to read.

Roll your mouse over the text to highlight it ;)


Why should we have to do that at all?

Would be much easier if they just removed all the colors.

I'm not saying he should have to, it's just something one can do instead of twitching one's eyes.

People who post in a hard-to-read colour won't have their posts read by me at all. I skip over them entirely.

I also oppose removing all font colours from the forums. I see them used the proper way in the clan recruitment forums, among other places.

I agree with this - no need to punish all forumers and take away colors and styling because of a few trolls.

Ignoring the posts is one approach, or highlighting the text is another. Just a quick tripple-click will highlight an entire paragraph, just in case someone decides to write up a post in a deliberately unreadable color.
