  • Looks pretty good.
    Should be readable by the 3 main colourblind types.

    Looks a bit dull (very brown) when run through the deuteranope & protanope colour-blind simulator, but you frequently get that & the images in the link colours will help.

    Hi there! I have emailed the addy Martin and hope I can help out with the testing too, the site looks so much easier on the eye although a lot of things are hard to check without it being a proper html page I guess but my first impression was how much better it looked!! Look forward to hearing from you about testing and seeing this new site in action too!!! :beer:

    Hi all

    Here's a newbie Point of view!

    I only found MSE recently and have been a regular ever since. The site is fantastic and jam packed with hints/tips/advice/discussions etc.... Full of interesting reading & learning, but I have had difficulty in finding my way around. Not that that's a bad thing, as I manage to stumble from one part to another anyway!!

    The new design looks less cluttered and more user friendly. I think it will attract more newbie's to look around, once they do I am sure they will stay!! I like the colours and layout of the new site, as far as I can see looks like a change in the right direction...

    I am available to help/test, just let me know if I can be of service!

    P.S. I am addicted anyway & would be sticking around even if things weren't changing! I love the site!!
  • Have sent volunteer email.
    My dept (CS at middx uni) has a research group looking at web accessibility for people with physical & cognitive problems - will probably be able to borrow the testing tools.

    This is what it looks like through the red-green (deuteranope) filter
