Announcement Font Update

Just a quick note that there were a number of inconsistencies and legibility issues within our fonts across the site that were creating problems for members across different platforms. We have made an update that should have corrected this issue and our font now should be considerably more consistent across platforms and should be more legible at differing sizes as well.

Most of you probably won't even notice the change as it is relatively minor, but we wanted to mention it in case anyone does notice and wonders what happened.

Is it smaller? Text seems smaller and almost muddy. Looks terribly faint on my screen, right now. Darken the sumbitch up a little.

It isn't smaller. We haven't changed the size or color. It is slightly less wide font but that is all.

In regard to color, it is already almost black; #222222.

I would assume that the readability on phones and other smaller screen devices would be much better now. :thumbsup

There's something about this that's so black, it's like how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

I noticed the change right away because I have no life, and on my PC it's an improvement (the only device I browse the forum on). :thumbsup
There seems to be more difference in font weight between the bold and regular font now too, and the font looks a bit more legible (not that there was a legibility problem before). I like it!

Thank goodness. We still have a couple of people who are having problems... actually MORE problems with the new font, so I am glad it is better for at least a few of you.

I thought it had changed but didn't want to ask after my last thread asking if it had changed :lol
