Why the light grey font against a grey background?
Reading this BBS has become much more difficult with the light fine grey font against a grey background. This same combination has appeared on many other Boards. I am wondering who thought this up. Perhaps the programers have their monitors on HIGH for Brithness and/or contrast.
Many news items that are coming up on websites are even more difficult to read with the very small type to save space. Unfortunately, It is a strain on the eyesite!
The short answer is that the design team is working on it.
For more information (the long answer, if you will) there's a very, very long thread about the redesign here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/560190
