    Gamepedia Wiki hard to read due to theme

    I've just started here and found the wiki pages quite hard to see as white on translucent black.
    Compare this to this forums site and it's a lot clearer with black text on a solid white background. For body text that is substantially easier to read.

    Compare this to the Minecraft wiki, also using Gamepedia, which uses minimalist ice blue backgrounds with black text and no transparency and it's a lot easier on the eyes. Personally, I make tutorials sometimes, using PowerPoint, and focus on ease of reading as the top priority over aesthetics, textbooks are similarly designed. The Survivalists game wiki is very hard to read as an example.

    Realized I forgot to reply here. Thanks for the pointers. We'll be revisiting the Wiki in a short time, filling it with content, and we can look at the readability too.

    By the way, I've started to write Wiki entries based on what I could learn
