Honestly, the best solution is let everyone customise the colours.
That'd make this a dupe however, and you know that as well.

It is a bit ugly, but who cares? You'll barely even see this message.
I'd rather appease people by going with it but honestly
why the frick does it matter if it looks ugly if its atleast more readable?
Currently it's quite a pain to read still
There are mixed people here in this forum. People who think it is will be more readable (most people) and people who think it is less readable and people who bumped the forum alot, however, whether we should add it depends on if it is worth adding it based on the workaround (which is using a browser extenstion I can't name), its effect (changing colours to make more readable), how much effort is required (little) and whether or not there is a better way based on previously mentioned factors. Due to this, I don't think we should increase the contrast, only because of the fact that I think it would be better to instead suggest a suggestion to allow users to customize the colours than this suggestion.

Support. The original one is a little too hard to read in white over orange since I read in a light theme more than a dark theme, so it would help in contrast to see the message better if it were that color.

Customizing colors already has a thread so suggesting it here just CTRL+D's that suggestion - Just customizability is of course always the better solution, but this is already more readable and fails zero WCAG standards.

Yes, but do you think that if there is a better way to do something, you should at least do that instead, or that, in this case, if there is something better to suggest, you should suggest that instead? Also, if something better is rejected or already has a thread, shouldn't the attention be brought to that thread as if it was rejected, the original thread should probably be rejected too and if it wasn't, it would solve the issue?

i had a stroke trying to read this
this suggestion would also be a lot faster and easier to implement, and still does a pretty good job (at least imo) of solving the issue.

Well, the main issue is that it is not very readable and how readable it is depends on people's preferences (As shown in the graph below), however, most prefer black and white, for this case, yellow/white and dark orange or red and white, but specificly what colour pair is typically best doesn't really matter. If you were to say that one colour pair is more readable, that would apply to a certain group of people. The graph is limited on the used color pairs, however, shows that not everyone has the same color preferences. There will always be people who do not like the colour pairs. So it seems to me like it would be better to allow people to customize their colours, after all, it would solve the problem of people not entirely agreeing on a specific colour pair.

Yes, however that does not mean alternatives should be ruled out - While that basically resolves it all, this is not only just a literal 3 letter change (#FFF –> #000) in the CSS styling, but also does not fail WCAG standards either, compared to the current scheme, which just completely fails.

And again, just because a better solution exists does not mean alternatives should not be considered either. Both of these resolve an issue - This, is a smaller one.

It's obvious that customizing the color freely is a win for everyone - And that not all pairs are best for everyone. I get that, but even then the current one is a complete failure to WCAG standards; I'm unable to word this any better so I'm probably looking bad, but I digress.

From anyone I've asked (offsite) they said black combination was a win, and I have not seen anyone that said that the white combo is better.

And again, this is still just an alternative to that suggestion, and this is a mere 3 character change in the CSS file.

You're not looking bad, it's just that there is a suggestion to argue about and we, without much violence or profanity of course, are arguing for the side we seperately agree on. That is supposed to happen. Nevertheless, I would personally prefer the white and orange/red, not because you said you haven't seen anyone that said it was better or that I have a disability affecting vision but because I truthfully think that. Regardless, I do believe that the current one may be more unreadable to some but not to others with some examples affecting more people than others, thus your suggestion is very reasonable and I do think that it should be changed, what the specific color pair is or how it works. I do have to ask you though, do you think it would be better to have most people or almost everyone (except for blind people or people with too severe disabilites affecting vision of course) to be able to say that it is at least readable enough to them?

Also, yes, even if there are alternatives, it doesn't mean we shouldn't consider this one, that is true. It is just that it is related in reasoning to this, so is probably useful to this and to whether or not this suggestion should be done.

This needs to be done RIGHT NOW! The website could get sued and taken down for breaking UN WCAG guidelines.

Can you please put this at/near the top of your signature and tell people that tag spam isn't allowed and it manipulates the algorithm, to start a chain and spread the word? - Thanks, @EDawg2011.

But then I had a very good idea. I used F5. See, using F5 gave me a whole new perspective and I was able to see a chest I couldn't have seen before.

No, that’s not how that works

What does a failing grade mean?
The grading uses a combination of color contrast, text size and text weight. A fail simply means that the color combination offers some visual strain to the person seeing it and should be avoided if possible.
It says nothing about it being not allowed, all it says is it should be avoided


Also scratch is based in the US so why would a random “law” in Europe effect them

They turned purple because it was better contrast for the white text. it wasn’t because they could have been sued
This is suggesting to change the text color to be worse than the old blue ones contrast

Personally I can't really come up with another combo here, the first thing I can really think about is decreasing it to dark.

Honestly I can't really come up with an answer.
I'd say almost everyone no matter a disability - The thing is that I'd also try looking for a better combo but I really just can't come up with a better one.

Not law; It's a standard.

I haven't done due diligence on that honestly, however AFAIK you can get blocked in the EU if you don't abide by it - Take me with a grain of salt, I can be remembering wrong.

I'm arguing against this, Scratch, being the largest all-ages coding platform, definitely wouldn't have went under the radar for years and have to do it now.
But then again I'm too lost myself to try and argue.
