    With the all-black site heading, the "start a new Hub" button has become all but invisible - dark green against a black background.

    There have been two posts by Hubbers in other threads who were lost and couldn't find where to start a new Hub.

      Thanks, Marisa. I didn't even know it was there! Why isn't it in white like the other links?

      I noticed that too.  At first I couldn't find it.  Now I know to look for the black space between all the other words that show up - and click on that.  lol

      (Hey - I just looked, and it's at least showing up in green now for me.  Before, it was completely invisible.  The olive-green is new.  smile  )

    I agree it should be brightened up and made more noticeable.

    The people designing HubPages, should consider usability first in their design. It's been that way for a while. And they've got to be way under 50, since they like such small print on black and gray.

    I keep wondering what the advantage is in constantly changing the look of Hubpages. It's not so much that one look is better and another is worse, for me, as that I think we lose in terms of accessibility if things don't stay consistent.

      I agree with you, Aya. But there's a balance. HP probably needs to be "with" the times in order to increase its membership, but once it has its members, it's got an an obligation to usability for them. Changing graphics, layouts, and help logic doesn't do anything for the people who use this site to publish; doing so only makes the site less user-friendly.

    This is a good point, and an easy fix.

        Ah - now I'm seeing that James must be responsible for the fact that I'm now seeing the green letters.  Thanks, James.
