I noticed in posting there's some new options like smileys and font changes that can be done in the forums now...but when I click on the smiley I want, it shows up in the post UNTIL I post it...then no smiley. I guess they are still working on it, but this is great! Or will be. :P <-----------there is a smiley there, but you probably can't see it yet. LOL

That will be cool, but I noticed that new whenever I click on a particular forum it takes me to the bottom of the page, which is annoying.

I like to type in PINK!

ETA: Oh well. It doesn't seem to come out that way, even though it looks like it in the editor.

ETA: YAY! Now it is working!

I agree.  My Home button is getting a work out to go back to the top of the forum.

I see pink and smilies....smilies are okay....pink is hard to see.  I'd lay off the colored fonts unless they are really needed for something.

FUN FUN FUN

I wonder if red will be considered mad like caps are considered yelling? 

Do colors have emotions? 

Can spell check be turned on to work ALL the time????

Can you tell I'm having fun with this??  :)

What a bright idea from the PBS folks.

I also wish there was a way to set a personal "default" color since I like to type in purple when the option is given...

Glad to see Cozi's having fun. I was curious why my little cat avatar is in a box now, and it wasn't before. I don't care, was just wondered. Anybody know?

I agree with Sianeka about wishing you could set a default style.  I probably won't bother most of the time if I have to select the font and color every time I make a post.

I don't see myself messing with it much. I can't even read Cozy or Paula's posts. I see myself skipping past a lot of posts because I can't read them.  Spell check and the little smiley's and such are cool.

OK I read the posts now on FIrefox but then Firefox does the annoying bottom of the page thing. Which is nice when you open a thread you've been posting on but not so nice when you are opening a new thread or message board.

I see they are working on the jumping to the bottom of the page issue and have a temporary fix in place.  I didn' t think it would take them long to come up with a solution.   The PTB listen to us and react when they can.  Yeah!   I  PBS

 I really don't care for the colored fonts.  I know people want to be a unique snowflake, but your uniqueness makes it almost impossible to read your posts.

The colored fonts aren't too bad, although some of the really light ones are hard to read...but the colored background to the words, especially red, just doesn't work at all...can't read a single word behind it.Like this.  

I reckon I'll just be skipping over anything freaky enough that it's hard to read.

Just highlight the posts as if you were going to copy and paste and you'll see the post in white on dark blue.  Easy to fix and to read.

Yes, but if there's 20 posts in a thread and all of them have problematic font/background colors, I'm not going to sit and fart around highlighting them all...I'm just not! I have better things to do with my time, so I guess it's my loss if someone has something brilliant to say but encases it in really annoying fonts/backgrounds. 

Believe it or not, I've seen some posts like that...

i don't mind the font colors so much but I don't like the highlighted background at all so I'm unfortunately putting some people on ignore who are using it in all their posts. Its just too hard for me to read. I'll probably go back in a month or so and see if they are still highlighting everything or if the "new" has worn off yet.  Then I can take them off ignore.
