I need to see
« on: July 23, 2014, 05:27:56 PM »
I have now had 2 people quacking at me about my large bolded print.  You will notice it is not in caps, so I am not shouting or saying look at me.  If anyone read my intro you would see I am older.  I have sh!t for eyes. My reading glasses are a +4. I need larger darker print to proofread my posts.  I also need to use the ctrl scroll feature on my computer to read the posts. I  paid more for a better computer screen so it would still look decent when I enlarged the print. You should see my nook, takes me 7 or 8 turns to get through one normal page.  I assumed since the size and bold were features here on the forum it was OK to use them?  Not everyone has the kind of eyes that they need minus lenses for.

How does making YOUR posts big and bold help anything?

If you hear 2 quacking, you can safely assume there are at least 100 ducks.
Pizza is not bread.

Hold control and use the scroll wheel on your mouse. It will enlarge the page for you. Also if you are on a laptop, you can place two fingers on the track pad and slowly separate them.

It helps me see to check them for typos in the preview pane, other wise they look run together, thin lines and all, I miss stuff. 
Oh yes, I assumed if I was bugging 2 that were brave enough to say something, there would be more behind the scenes rustling the curtain.

reeter,
I was born into this world by my blind mother, throughout my entire life I have been a volunteer and financial contributor to many clubs and programs that help the visually handicapped.

If anyone on this forum harasses you even just once again I want you to please send me a personal message and this situation will get immediately resolved through the good man, MR. Steve, that owns this forum.

Thank you,
Robert Baker

I noticed it but never bothered me at all.
Life is way too short to spend anytime worrying about things like this.
As far as i am concerned, carry on.

Thank you, Bob.  I didn't consider it harassment, they were trying to help me out with the forum, not knowing I had some problems.  That is why I decided to post.

I was one quacker.  However, the spirit of the quack was "do you know?"
Respectfully, it's akin to, "Hey friend, you've got a bugger in your nose.  It was a PM for that reason.
Quack, quack, quack.  I'd tell any of you the same.
I have done wrong.. but what I did, I thought needed to be done.

One of the most amazing things that I have experienced on this forum was a member who, in joining the forum, revealed that he was blind. I provided details on this matter at Reply 22 at http://www.pizzamaking.com/forum/index.php?topic=13961.msg140679;topicseen#msg140679. For some time, I wondered whether the member was pulling the forum's proverbial leg but I ultimately concluded that he was really blind. I even did some Google searching using his forum's name where I found an item in which he was exploring potential problems because of his blindness if he were to take an ocean cruise.
