      Ugh. That yellow. It even looks sticky. Could we have something a little less pus & bloodish? Maybe more subtle while you're at it Thanks.

        Sometime this morning, the font became smaller?

        Yes with Bob, maybe a light green or orange would be better than the yellow?

          It would also be nice if a topic is removed/deleted, that the removed/deleted topic disappear from our view as well. There have been times when there are 3 and 4 deleted topics back to back and it is annoying to see them and scroll past them..

          My font didn't get smaller but changed to what looks like times roman which is harder to read.

            I hope the dark grey overtones aren't here to stay? The boards seemed much brighter before and pleasing to the eye.

              We might be able darken or embolden the fonts, have it on the list. Only light font that I see on iphone is the topic Date Time stamp under user information. Is that the same on your phone? Light and dark will (hopefully) be the same regardless of the brand of phone we are using.... Let me know. TY

              I view the forum almost exclusively on a tablet or phone. Because of that the serif fonts just don't work that well. I prefer something in the helvetica (no serifs) family because they're easier to read when the font size gets reduced on mobile devices. Thanks.

                Just a point of clarification...

                Serif fonts are those that have the decorative ends on the letters and varying line widths (as if written by a quill)...like Bookman, Times New Roman, etc.


                Non-serif fonts have squared or rounded ends and usually consistent line widths (as if written by a marker)...like Helvetica, Arial, Tahoma, etc.

              I adapt easily so I'm on board with whatever you decide to go with. Frankly, I was ok with the way it was before. I tend to focus on getting to know the peeps and reading about their experiences with figs. I also love to look at pictures of the stuff that's going on around the board.

              Wills, Thanks for all you do for us.

              The Strech looks good.
              The Resized button now works better on my IPhone.

              My vote is for Arial Fonts, IMO they're "easier" to view and read.

              Thanks.

                      Well I can take credit for the buttons but as far as Arial you are going to have to take that up with Admin IT...... I find all the fonts to be fine. One person will say Arial the next will say Arial is horrible use Times Roman.....so some things are just not going to suit everyone but lobby for the one you want and I know Admin IT is watching.

                        I'm still seeing Bookman on the iPad and iPhone. That's a minor issue in the overall scheme of things.

                            Is it possible to have a place where fig recipes can be added at the top. If it can be done it would be nice to have only recipes without comments clogging it up. Just a thought.

                                  Thanks Mike but I can only take it so far as I lack the technical knowledge and have no design skills whatsoever That is why we are so lucky to have members here that have volunteered their time and vast experience to take us to the next level.

                                    Great job on the changes!
                                    I vote for a try back on the Ariel font - I believe it was a bit easier to read.
                                    Is there a reason we don't know why this font is preferred by AdminIT?

                                      Yes there is a very sound reason, it was the first in my list and I didn't have to scroll when editing parameters. I have been resetting parameters for days and that eliminated having to scroll and find a font. Also, looks pretty good with its' several styles. Nothing in concrete yet, we,are not at the point where we select font etc.. There are far too many other considerations before the font/fonts are chosen.

                                    Hopefully, we'll have a couple of each in the end so people can choose the font they like.

                                      Unfortunately the "themes" choices for fonts ONLY affects your own profile. Users don't get the option to change the font on the forum itself on a user by user basis....would be nice if they could but is not part of the software.
