          Our most common complaint and reason for cancelation is people who have trouble navigating in here. It is soooooo different from normal websites. One of the cornerstones of our design style of the UI (User Interface) is that red things are clickable. We are trying to make the UI more user friendly for newbies.

            While I do not have a visual impairment there are large numbers that do. A website needs to at least attempt to provide a viewable site for those so afflicted. Have a look at https://webaim.org/articles/visual/colorblind for an article on colors and their impact for the color blind. Contrast also needs to be considered. https://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/ for those with limited sight.
            I am not an expert at any of this but I know the holding company I am on the board of owns several software companies. In the past I questioned the need to employ visual designers but have been converted to the belief that they are a necessity.

              I have to agree with Meathead on this - these forums are somewhat antiquated and anything we do to make them easier to use is important.

              I run a private home brewing related forum web site, which used to run on vBulletin and now runs on phpBB (we got tired of paying for updates to vBulletin). Having a template or theme make it clear what is clickable versus not is important. For me, the red is fine, and I can see the bold font for threads that have messages I have not read, and it goes to a normal non-bold font once I've read it. Makes things clearer.

                That reminds me of a ditty:
                Roses are red
                Violets are blue,
                I’m schizophrenic,
                And so am I.

                I’m not a fan of the new All Red color pallet. Maybe we should be able to control our own colors individually.

                    Update!

                    I have restored the previous color scheme for new topics (bold/blue) and topics with new replies (bold/red).

                    Important note: the links are not full red, they are (what I call) Pitmaster Red. Slightly darker red, more of a brick red.

                    Enjoy!

                    The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                    the good one grill

                    The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
