Based on the last poll as well as specific feedback, it was clear that many members found the original type size too small. It was also clear that a lot of members were happy with it. Due to a combination of different monitor resolutions and differences in visual acuity, there’s probably no “perfect” size.
So, we have made some code changes to do the following:
- Make the default size for most of the text a little bigger.
- Allow our members to adjust the size in their browser. 90% of our members use Internet Explorer, which did not allow resizing before. Now a member can select “View - Text Size” in IE and increase or decrease the size of the type. (Selecting “smaller” should produce something close to the size when the new forum launched.)
- We bumped the line spacing a little bit to make posts more readable. Under some viewing conditions, the original line spacing was somewhat close.
So, let us know what you think.
