There must be numerous other threads about this, but I didn't find one by searching. I really have difficulties reading the forum, due to the small contrast between text and background color. I checked with color contrast checkers, and the NewTek forum doesn't fulfil any accessibiliyu standards (except when using large text). See http://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/

Could the contrast between text and background colors be increased to meet at least the WCAG AA standard?

Also, on mobile the text is so tiny it's virtually impossible to read.

Too bad for good discussion to get lost because many people can't read...

I'm not sure about the themes and contrast, but the forum software itself is a well known 3rd party solution and any accessibility updates and fixes should probably be addressed by the software provider, vBulletin.

Have you tried using the menu at lower right on the page to test different styles?

Ah, thanks! I can see again :D Perhaps change the default to something more accessible, and then it might also be easier to find the theme selector?
