New format

Put a 'reply to this post' on the primary email.

 

Log onto any discussion group in LinkedIn to see an example of a more readable format.  Graphic 'basic rules' are a start:  high contrast;  no small typeface;  fully separated 'sections';  including replies in body of emails sent out (eliminating the click-through requirement);  fix the 'sign-in' requirement (even though I have 'remember me' checked, I still get a sign-in screen sometimes, not always);  use a test group of users for opinions on any proposed/draft format and operative changes;  keep in mind users may be sight-impaired, or older with declining vision;  etc. 

 

Richard, I don't know if you are a 'webby', but if not, perhaps a consult with a web site designer would be helpful... or simply find a great layout on another web discussion site and emulate it's format.

In the best world, you would allow us to set the font. Sans-serif fonts have become the most prevalent for display of text on computer screens. The narrow fonts are more difficult. your :Follow this topic, when highlighted is easier to read. You need to know that most of the posters are over fifty five and our eyesight is going... As stated by HIL higher contrast....

Well, this is certainly an improvement. I really like seeing the topic right in the email. Then I know whether to go to the site at once, or whether it can wait until I have time to read several posts at once because I won't be adding crucial replies. 

 

There are a number of good, readable fonts. This one is working OK for me. I'm not sure if any of the accessibility checks will work for this type of site, or only to check regular websites. If they can, then the point would be to check it out and see what kind of score it gets.
