    Can I suggest we have a section for external references to useful videos/ articles which we can then all discuss. The good thing about this would that you could then easily find them again and see peoples different views.

    Yes, @Administrator , Giverny went to a lot of trouble to make the monochrome version for those who, like me, have visual perception problems with colours on screen. Please do not reverse her good work.
    Unfortunately, when some members choose to alter the font colour of their posts this still makes it difficult to read, because it overrides the monochome.

    Yes, currently it does. The new update will make it a separate field so people can edit it more freely. (In some instances for example, therapy type might be relevant.)

    Type 2 is technically in there twice until all people's choices filter through (which will probably about 6-8 weeks). Type 1.5 has been moved down the list and there is now the option for Prefer not to say (Private) too. :)

    The nosey bit was added in the Low Carb Program and quite a lot of people are choosing it! :eek:

    Ah, so the option to set the text colour would be useful? That is certainly possible and totally makes sense.

    OK, perhaps I'm having a brain fade, but how do I look at the various options for user status? @Andrew Colvin suggested to another member she "change her relation to diabetes", but I don't seem to have an edit option in that area.

    As I said,............ readily bewildered. :confused:
