Change body text colour from grey to black?

With the amount of posts and threads to be read on CDFreak, for readability sake can we please change the body text colour from medium-lightish grey to BLACK? When you read one thread and leave grey is fine but for long term usage that colour strains the eye (more contrast = better).

Anyone else think the same?

While we’re at it … isn’t the #1 rule for forums is that animated emoticons/smilies is a big no no? They’re just a distraction. Especially this nodding dog one here: :iagree::iagree::iagree::iagree::iagree::iagree::iagree:

Compare a page of full of static smilies and one page full of whirling dancing smilies and see for yourself which one is more annoying.

I disagree! I like it the way it is. :disagree::disagree::disagree::disagree:

I like the animated smilies - they communicate the intended emotion quicker/better than static emoticons.

I just don’t like it when people use lots and lots of emoticons in their posts, but that’s another discussion.

I hadn’t even noticed that the body colour isn’t black:

default colour text black colour text

I guess you’re right about the default colour not being black.
