Moderator colours and colour blindness

G'day Folks,

There 's a post edited by a moderator. I had to be told the text was a different colour -- to me both the original and mod's text appears black on the bright white background.


Is it possible and if it is, would you be so kind as to bold or otherwise make the mod messages more visible to the colour limited people?

P.S. I'd have taken this to PM, by it is unsigned and only says a moderator did it.

Hmm. Let me look into some formatting options. There are other ways we can make mod text more obvious. We just don’t want to make it too distracting! :)

There are a couple of things we can do here to help mitigate the problem.

1) Preface end-notes with "Mod Edit:" or "Mod Note:"

1a) When it is an in-line edit, try to note it as such when possible, or put a note at the end of the post saying what was done.

2) Make use of the Warning system, which puts the note as a banner on top of the post, rather than an edit on the bottom.

These are not much of a burden, as they are out usual forms anyway - this one case had a slip.

Those warning notes are really easy to miss, particularly when they appear above a quote.

Any way to make 'em red-backgrounded or some other colour that really stands out? (that said, I'm finding coloured text in general much harder to read on the white background than it was on the black)

They appear at the top of the post in question. If "right at the top" is easy to miss, I'm not sure there's much we can do for you

They are background in what looks to be orange. It just isn't FLAMING IN YOUR FACE SOLID ORANGE WITH BLINKING TEXT HUGE FONT.

I mean, really, how obtrusive do you feel it needs to be?

Well, at least I can tell that one is different than the text around it!
