    I use the UO Classic which has a light gray background and a black text as default but posters are allowed to change their text colors when they post and depending on the color/shade they pick it is sometimes hard/impossible to read them without going through the steps to highlight the text. We should not be required to go through extra steps just to read someones posts in a thread. Give us the default ability to pick what color text is displayed for all text.

    Unfortunately there isn’t a solution available to make this possible aside from making a single theme for Stratics and forcing every user to it. That would be the only way to make sure any possible change in text color someone uses contrasts properly.

    So there is no way for a user to set up a display all posts with a set background/text color, how disappointing.

    I vote for making a single theme!

    The issue with that is people wouldn't want to stop using whatever theme they currently use. If a single theme were made, it would not be UO Classic, so in this case that would be exchanging not being able to read a few posts for not being able to use that theme at all.

    Or you could keep the themes and just remove the ability to use different colored text.
