RAGBRAI LI Registration is Now Open!

New look?

anyone else seeing the Category and Topic in a light greenish yellow? Topics, posts and last poster showing up in black. I think the green is hard to read.
The posts are showing up almost full width now, that is nice.

Wow, this format is not good. Why do they keep changing it for the worse.

Don’t like it, really don’t like it. Didn’t care for the one before it.

Talking to TJ last night. He said the IT people are working on it and expect something soon maybe the 30th. Maybe a return of pm’s too.

If a nice deep purple for the font wouldn’t work surely a darker green would be just fine. Cheers…from an old Irishman.

Until the folks at the DMR get the website “rehabbed” to be more “friendly” here’s what I did to increase the readibility of the green print on the website on my AOC monitor:
1.) Reduced the “contrast” to about one-third (1/3rd) scale of its range.
2.) Reduced the “brightness” to about one-half (1/2) of its range.

The blue became an “almost gray”, the green print was brighter and easier to read and the overall brightness of the screen was diminshed somewhat…a little difficult for my eyes to adjust to but it didn’t affect the overall visibility of the other computer stuff.

Good luck. Cheers, Knees.

Oh thank goodness, it’s back to ‘normal’!!!  That was really difficult to read, I was not liking it at all.  Thank you whoever, for fixing it!!!!

I reported this apparent spammer to both RAGBRAI Info and Andrea Parrott. D

Dizzy are you telling me you don’t want “Boots Cheap”?? I think I solved the problem but let me know if it didn’t work or we get more spammy posts. Thank you!

Good to see you back Andrea.


Andrea Parrott, April 27, 2020 at 3:13 pm

Thank you :)

[quote quote=1318596]Thank you ?[/quote]


This may or may not be in the scope of your duties, but I have a request. Please route this to whomever has the responsibility.

This thread began 8 years ago. There are other threads that are just as old, some of them having been hijacked by spammers hawking their wares. Please shut down threads from prior years so that no new posts can be added. Also, can you look at current postings and remove the spam and block the offenders.

I appreciate your efforts to keep the forum “clean.” Thanks.

See you along the I-O-Way in 2021.


Andrea Parrott, July 17, 2020 at 1:14 pm

T. Gap Woo – that’s a good idea. Will try to figure out how to do that! Probably easier overall than deleting these spammers one at a time.


“Bicycle Bill”, July 17, 2020 at 10:21 pm

The only thing I don’t understand is why the spammers seem to target old, long-dead threads for their dreck and drag them back to the forefront.
