I don't know if I'm the only one, but the recent increase in Gold members has made me realize how low the contrast is in their names against the background with the light theme.

I'm using the following rules in Operas' user.css to use the bronze color for gold and bump the bronze color down a few notches to compensate.

Code: [ Select ]
a[style="color: #cfb52b;"]
    color: #97842d !important;
a[style="color: #97842d;"]
    color: #540 !important;
  1. a[style="color: #cfb52b;"]
  2. {
  3.     color: #97842d !important;
  4. }
  5. a[style="color: #97842d;"]
  6. {
  7.     color: #540 !important;
  8. }

I imagine if I was using the dark theme my alterations would actually make it worse though.

Anyway, as you can see it's not really a problem for me anymore. I mainly just wanted to stash this little piece of CSS in case I need it on someone elses computer or something. That and if anyone else is seeing it the same way I was. :D

I can see the gold names, but it does need a bit of squinting for me to make it out properly ... maybe because of my high resolution mixed with the fact that the gold is very light in contrast to the background ...

Yeah my problem is I need to find a value that works good for both the light and dark themes for the bronze and gold values. The writers of phpbb3 made the mistake that you have to hardcode those color values in which means its fixed across multiple themes. Would be nice to just use classes in there instead then I could make it look perfect on both.

Perhaps you could do something like make the background of the username gold, but keep the username itself black?
