Jake that looks fine to me. I did not mean to make a big deal out of it, the default font is ok too. It is just when posts use the facny fonts, maybe bold and some funky color that I have to strain my eyes. I have never had great eyesight and it has not gotten better with age.

Regarding the font size: I would suggest that users continue to post with normal font size and that users that can not read the posts because the font is too small edit their browser text size option. That way each user uses the size they like when viewing this site or any other site.

With FireFox you go to View - Text Size - Select Increase (ctrl++) or Decrease (ctrl+-).

With Internet Explorer if CSS (like in this site) is used you might not be able to resize the text on some parts or all... I suggest you use FireFox

Arsenik just for the record I am not saying that I am having any problems with the default font. It is when people try to make their post look like they wrote it using a fat purple magic marker and try to make it look like handwriting that it gets tricky. So changing the fiont size options will not help, it will still look like handwriting with a fat magic marker.

We're in the final stages of working on the rules for the site, and I'm seriously thinking about including a rule to stick with the default font settings except for occasional use of the other tools for emphasis. I don't want to take the fun out of the site, but the main point is to convey information, which is difficult when posts are in unreadable fonts/sizes/colors. I have pretty decent vision, and some of the combinations I've seen are just plain hideous.

No worries skunkstripe i understood your suggestion , i was just making a suggestion regarding the font sizes since some had started talking about it.

We can currently limit the choice of font and sizes if it is needed. That way ppl will be limited to the list of font and sizes we make available. This would make moderating easier... (limited choice of font and sizes to select from when posting)

I'd rather make a "soft" limitation through the rules; hopefully everyone will respect that once it's posted and make moderating a non-issue. If not, we can always remove the worst of the options. Hopefully it won't come to that because a bit of variability from time to time can definitely be a good thing.

Please stick with size 2. Arial is a good font, but size 1 can get awfully small.
