Identifying which controller I'm looking at
#3
Mike,
I agree. 

I've done a few projects for folks (and a little pay) and what looks good to my eyes really bombs depending on their monitor type, age, and sex along with color blindness.

A tough call, but the grey is associated with 'greyed-out' which generally means you can see that there is something there, but is diminished so you don't try changing it or as a signal something that allows you to change it, isn't enabled.

For the developers, who no doubt are overwhelmed as usual with all sorts of demands and the clamor for getting stations out, it would be nice to see a couple of mock ups to see what users think.

The Blitzortung.org for Blue controllers and Blitzortung.org for the Red systems seems pretty straightforward.  After all, the little symbol for the lightning bolt is red for Red and blue for Blue in my bookmark bar in FireFox, so there was some thought in differentiating them.


The colors for the fill in boxes is tougher, since colors other than grey are hard to see, too.  And the choices I'd like to see tried would be just plain old black text vs. the grey color, since the values are all in little boxes, or choice drop downs anyway. 

Just a thought.  And how wonderful the whole project is, really, when we can be mainly concerned about the colors!
