Reply To: New Design -Hard to Read

August 21, 2017 at 7:11 pm

I hope there are some more style improvements on the way for the forum. I find the new style to be difficult to use and have stayed away holding out for a larger and darker font to improve readability. I had to increase the zoom level in my browser to read this forum, but that throws off all my other sites making them poorly viewed.

This forum has become too hard on my eyes since the change. There was nothing wrong with the previous forum style and I think the old adage ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ applies here. A good Arial, Georgia, or Times Roman 12 or 14 point font should bring back readability if the color is not washed out (light grey is the worst).

More info about what makes webpages more readable can be found here:

Please restore more readability soon.
