    [​IMG] My Name is James W Works Most people Call me Cptmouse!

    I mostly edit videos for my friends on YouTube. I think editing videos is pretty cool even to know at times it can be a pain. sweatdrop.gif

    I am completely Color Blind (I can only see in black, gray and white aka shades) it makes playing games hard but I still enjoy playing games icon_e_biggrin.gif

    Being colorblind is a rough road as a creator of pretty much anything.
    I'm colorblind and simply theming this site was a HUGE, undertaking.
    Generally speaking you can't really roam too far out of a wheel house of basic colors, as what any of us would see is usually vastly different. so a text or even a font can be ultra hard to read for us, but others it's easy and looks fine. Most of the reason it was so hard, i simply couldn't distinguish the colors from each other prior to even trying to change them. So i had to change 1 color at a time to something like Lime Green, just to see where it would change the color on the site, then look all over the site to see what other aspects it changes.
    Then came the task of trying to use a good color to replace it, that will work for both colorblind and normals.
    This is why i HATE doing graphics, a normal person could simply just pick colors out quickly, while i have to spend time looking at HEX code to nail down the correct color, do google searches, and spend about 100x longer just doing basic things.
    Just doing the colors here on the site, was a process i spent almost a year tinkering with. wasn't till winter that i finally said, lets spend the next few days doing nothing but editing this theme and the dark theme.
    I know your struggles all too well!
