Why is the font for links so illegible?

Why are the website links illegible? I'm only 28 and think the new font size AND COLOR make it impossible to read. Your website does not comply with any ADA accessibility for the visually impaired; it's a real shame. It used to be fine, but instead you let your web developers talk you into making something "pretty" and your users have lost functionality because of it. I suggest you share this Web Accessibility Color Contrast Checker with your developers to see how terrible the contrast issue really is:

Please, the Mint community is begging you – change the font size AND COLOR back.



Hi kbreisach,

Thanks for the feedback, and sorry you're not liking the change. I'll pass this along and also tag this post as feedback so it has visibility to our developers, who look for such tags they are looking for ways to improve Mint.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
