heh, you're right I didnt think about that. Well, if we make the font size smaller we can make fun of you :p

Ok, how about a seperate style named "small fonts" or something like that?
I can see fine, I just like to think of others when making decisions such as this one.

Besides, aren't ridiculously huge fonts all the rage at the minute? :D

Others? What others? :rolleyes:

But seriously I understand that, but at the same time for those of us who run in higher resolutions (1600x1200+, 1680x1050+) Its actually hard to read due to its large size. The font kerning is to high based on the font size it makes kinda hard to keep track of where you are reading. I have lost my place several times, especially when reading longer articles with several lines.

I like where the design is going, but I think we might need a couple versions to satisfy a larger group of people. Like I said in my previous post, I think a seperate style for smaller fonts would be awesome and it would not be that hard to impliment.

:)

I'm sure some CSS jiggery can be implemented, if only for accessibility reasons, to make the fonts larger/smaller on demand (along with some cookie magic to make preferences stick).

Most browsers have this awesome feature where if you click the ctrl key and then scroll the scroll wheel, the font size changes.

Then if we do the right thing, and move to 1em as a unit of measure to go from, he can set his standard font size in his web browser preferences, and then all font's will scale according.

The home page's style could use some extra transparency though, something like Vista's taskbar when aero is fully activated...

Indeed that's true, however, not everyone knows how to do that.

Totally agree with the usage of 'em' sizing units though.

Haha. I wish you could see the thread in the mod forum about it.
I think it'll be happening soon. Someone just needs to take EP's Xbox 360 away. :lick:

Yay! :) Glad to see the changes go live, it looks very nice and clean. I think maybe we need a darker theme again though. I really miss Ekko, or whatever it was called.
