We were pleased to see so many comments about the community on the recent thread about the Leader Board. We are always wanting to learn more about how we can develop the community and so have locked the previous thread so that all comments and suggestions about general improvements to the community can now be placed here on this thread.
Please comment here on any ideas, improvements or feedback you have about the Online Community.
Please note that although we take on board all your ideas, we may not be able to implement all of them.
As always, please be kind and respectful when commenting to each other.
I would like to see some help screens, even if they are in the form of a 'sticky' thread.
Perhaps RSS icons can be added to the forum groups and threads.
I also miss the ability to change screen colours. In the old system I could select a black background, which I prefer to the white. Firefox's reader mode does not work in the forum so I cannot use that to change the colour.
I believe the old system also allowed users to change the font size and that can be useful.
If any changes are to colours (including, for example, the buttons) then please remember to bear in mind people like myself who are colour-blind (I am red/green colour-blind but also have great difficulty with brown). I would be quite happy to see a different (and subdued) colour for buttons and usernames above posts.

Perhaps check 'Colour That Site :: Add-ons for Firefox - Firefox Add-ons - Mozilla'
Thank you but the add-on is written using legacy technology and will not work from Firefox 57 onwards.
In addition, and more importantly, allowing the user to change screen colours would (or should) be browser-agnostic.
