    How do I change the chatroom background color? Right now it is white characters on a grey background that I can not read past the first couple of words on each line. I can change the color of MY messages, but how do I control the display of other messages?

    I'd really like to change the white on grey to more easily read the older messages. It's almost impossible with the white on grey. . .

    Highlight all of the old text (click and drag over it with cursor) and it is easily read.

    I agree. The default colors are unreadable.

    :confused: So everyone wants to change the color of the text that is there before you logged in?
    With the old chat software, there wasn't any text. With the new software, you can highlight what happened before you logged in and come up to speed, or simply use it like before and see what's there AFTER you logged in. :)

    VOS,

    Just because there was no previous text when you first logged on (since you were the first person ages ago), that doesn't mean us young'uns don't want to know what happened before we logged on... :lol:
