    If you want people who read BB on their phones to be able to read your posts, please refrain from using colored fonts.

    Most phones are set to "dark mode" by default when reading forums with the Tapatalk app because dark mode saves a lot on battery usage. Consequently, when people post using colored fonts, especially darker colored fonts, their posts are unreadable. Here's an example to show you what I mean:

    I'm on my PC now and I can read the post. However, on my phone it is indecipherable.

    Will try to keep that in mind.
    My phone was on dark mode for about 2 seconds before I turned that mess off.

    I don't have that problem, I don't use a phone... That being said, I wish some brethren would quit using so many colored fonts as if we are getting ready to disembark from Noah's ark... You know who you are, your fonts of many colors gives you away... Brother Glen:rolleyes:

    I have found that even without a phone the use of colors can be distracting. But it may just be me.
