Throat is the sort of sore which could be a result of sleep and not drinking enough water, or could be a sign that I have The Housemates' Cold (I was sneezing a bit last night, and I just heard Belovedest coughing in the living room).

I was grumpily intending to remain in bed all day, dammit, because my knees were not good this past week, but I will probably at least get up for food.

When I got the battery on this here phone replaced, the tech talked sternly about properly charging and discharging for maximum life. I... have a lifestyle that doesn't match my battery size, so if I leave it discharging all day, I'm on the train when it starts going low. At which point my options for charging are fewer, and are mostly slow. I don't want to get stranded with a dead battery. So I may start blithely ignoring the best practices again, with the understanding that I will probably have to replace the battery again in a year or so.

Don't specify font color.

Don't try to match the font color in the editor to how it looks in the community*.

Don't pick a special font color for emphasis.

Don't do chat logs in different colors for different people.

Don't make announcements that specify colors even if it's a theme and you want it to look pretty.

Not if you want people to read it.


When it goes out onto the reading page, you no longer control the background color. Your color choice looks great on a white or light grey background. How does it look on black? Blue? Orange?

Don't specify font color. Specifying a color overrides the font color choice of the reader. It doesn't override the background color choice. It might be barely noticeable, or it might be unreadable.

Readers have different reasons for picking the background and text colors in their layouts. Sometimes it's aesthetic. Sometimes it's because they have low vision and can't read anything that is smaller or has less contrast. Sometimes it's because they're very color or light sensitive and some colors (such as very bright whites and cyans) give them debilitating migraines.

When you're posting in community space, don't be a jerk.


*When you're posting in your own space, you can control the look of the place, including colors, through your layout and make it look how you want that way. When you change your mind about how you want to have your space look, it's tedious to go back through old entries and change your font color.
