I really appreciate this feature cuz I'm super blind and squint when I used to have to read on the forums.

@Kozi: Right??? Hahaha I’m glad our dev was able to do it. I didn’t even think of it before but now that we have it I can’t go back xD

@Kozi: How does one operate on migraines?! I have a wet towel over my face and pure darkness and silence will only do. D:

@Q t e a p o n: Oh, it is a fresh hell. A freshhhh hell. RIP
But unfortunately, this sparkly alpaca still has to go to work with them quite often. :/
Darkness and silence work well for a lot of people, though!
I still need a fan on, though, since silence makes me anxious. XD;;

*is a wreck lol*

But yeah, that text setting is a lifesaver.

@Kozi: WOW I'm so sorry to hear that you actually have to work with them. How do you manage that? :( Does your boss know about them?

@Q t e a p o n: It's definitely not easy. I have to move much more slowly. (Usually I zing everywhere, busy busy!)
My boss knows about it, I thinkkkk she remember lol, but there's not much she can do about it. Work is work. RIP
So I just do whatever I can to get by.
Even if it's just turning off as many lights as possible without getting in trouble, or trying to take tasks on that are more isolated and quiet.
But yeah, I work in a factory setting, so that's not really feasible usually.

But yeah, definitely not easy. -00000000000234254366/10 would not recommend. XDD;;;
Definitely get a job where you can pace your own work, if you can. It helps.
I wish more jobs like that existed here.

It really helps when I'm using my tiny Chromebook. I appreciate the steps taken to be more user friendly!

I didn't realise that feature existed and tbh it's a gamechanger.

@Kozi: OHHH I see. Yeah I understand. There’s only so many days you can take off. Especially when you have bills to pay. I hope you are able to take small breaks in between work.

Yeah I wish there were more jobs out there accommodating people’s health conditions. :(

@Kira: oh I feel you! Sometimes when I used our MacBook that’s pretty tiny it was a battle. Always trying our best. :)

@Taciturnity: It was an amazing idea. :) I don’t remember (forever forgetful me) was this suggested or you just came up with it on your own?

@sunny: No way!? Just now???

@Q t e a p o n:

I came up with it on my own.
I was going to implement the "remove post colours" option due to theme conflicts and some people having difficulty reading others posts.
Thought while I was at it I might as well add some other accessibility settings for those who might have difficulty reading posts due to size as well. :3

I can't be sure myself but I might have added this in while you were on your recent break. ^^

I didn't realize that was an option either. Gonna go turn that on right now.

And @Kozi: I feel you on the migraines. (つ﹏<。) Sometimes you just get tired of not being able to do anything so you gotta just push through. The light above my desk at work burnt out and I asked them to NOT replace it. They actually agreed though!

I have the same conundrum, tiny text looks so neat and orderly but god damn it's hard to read. XD

Not going to be active.
Though I may lurk on occasion.

@Priestess of Pie: Basically, yeah. You gotta live life. :/
The only thing that really sucks is that there are a TON of noise machines, and you get 12+ hours per shift of looking into really bright inspection lights.
Then it's a fight between wanting or stab out your own eyes or barf for most of a day/night. XDD;;;

@Q t e a p o n: Somewhat. At least at home I can go sit in the dark if I need to. And I often do.
I still listen to music, though, screw that. XDD;; Pain or no, music is too much of a lifesaver to stop.

@Priestess of Pie: Haha, no. XDD;; I wish!
I inspect lenses, so wearing anything myself (aside from safety glasses) gets in the way of my job. x_x;;
I have super super dark ones for going out, though. Like 4x tinted ones.
They are niiiiiice. ^^b
