Go to the Channel Store and scroll over to the My Channels tab. Delete to your heart's content

And just to clarify... it's also the way you remove non-private channels.

Bold and colored text is unnecessary and annoying

I have to agree why are you always using different colours on your posts Village Idiot? Do you think we won't notice your posts?
Is what you are saying that important we need to see it in bold and a different colour?

Not that its any of your business but its because i have an incurable eye condition.
The different colors help me find my various posts so i can find any responses to any of my specific posts.
The bold helps me proof read what i wrote. Typing in not my forte.
I wish everyone wrote in bold but i don't impose my needs onto others.
And YES i do know about the A in the right hand corner.
One of the Monitors was kind enough to help me with it.

I guess we all want to find the answers to our specific posts.
We all just read through the entire thread until we find our post.
I don't have your eye condition and you know what works for you, so fair enough but I don't think it was unreasonable to ask why were you doing this as it was clearly annoying to others.

I too have very bad eyes that can not be helped with glasses or other normal means. Now saying that let me help you out here.

Not shore what browser you are running but I use firefox and one thing I love about it is you can change the size of the text on any website on the fly with it. I also think IE also now supports page zooming.

If that is not enough for you and you need help seeing every thing on the computer there is software known as screen magnifiers that you can run. Here is a link to a well known one called zoomtext http://www.aisquared.com/zoomtext/
If you can't afford that there are some open source ones out there just Google for screen magnifier software.

Now for the ultimate in set up for some one who can't see. My wife is totally blind. on this computer I'm on right now since we share the system is software called JAWS it is a full blown screen reader it takes what ever is on the screen and reads it out loud to you. Kind of cool not to have to read email just let the system read it to you. Info can be found here http://www.freedomscientific.com/products/fs/jaws-product-page.asp
I know it ain't cheap. that software cost something like $900 but there is a free open source project being worked on called NVDA but it isn't quit up to snuff yet with the pay software.

Please note I'm not trying to be mean or start problems just helpfull hints from one visually impaired person to another. If you like further info on software or tricks to make the computer easier for you to see just send me a privet message.

Yeah i've played around with one of those voice ones . Cheap one.
It was very mechanical sounding. I do know the one you're talking about.
You can even adjust it from male voice to female.
Which is cool if you're having it read something from a person you know.
But as you pointed it it ain't cheap.
I do have FF. I love FF. There's even a very helpful yahoo group for FF too.
I have used page zoom too. It also has its downfalls. Such as having to scroll constantly.
For me this adjusting colors and bold seemed the best compromise for me.
I can see more of the page to find what i want and be able to read it almost as easy as zoom.
In fact it was one of the Roku Monitors who pointed the colors, bold, and the A in the upper right out to me.
So i know its not against any rules. And in fact i assume they put it in as a help not an annoyance.
If you read any of my post they are not spam or intended to be annoying.
With that in mind why would anyone think i used colors or bold to annoy when my content wasn't annoying ?
Like you i don't want my medical problems to be an issue in here.
So i'll use FF instead of what i prefer to use to keep peace.
I do thank you for your concern and honest help.

That is true but i also like reading threads/posts that i haven't responded to or are brand new.
I never thought my use of the editing tools was an issue for anyone.
I'm rather surprised but the many responses on it.
The forum designers placed those tools on here and made them available for people to use.
I was making use of those tools for the right reasons.
Believe me if i wanted to tick people off i can do better then bold & color text.
But again that is NOT why i did it.
Anyway to keep peace i've reverted to using the page magnifier.
Now we can drop this issue.

For the record, I never found it annoying. I always felt it added a bit of life and color to what is normally a drab reading experience.

Some people in other forums try to draw attention to thier posts, that is why the question was asked.
It is clear you have a genuine sight issue and no one has a problem with that, so go back to your old way and use the colours and bold.

Some of us use a lot of forums and have found people using your method for self promotion rather than genuine use.

Hey I understand. Like I said if you ever want any tips and tricks for people like us with bad eyes using a computer just give me a shout. I am connected to a lot of other users with the same problems.

Ok sorry every one for taking up space just wanted to help the fella. I know what it is like not being to see well.

Every one do you self a favor and take care of your eyes the best you can. You don't know how good you got it till you can't do stuff you love to do when you can't see that well anymore.
