I'm confused as to why some members are saying the font is too small and have to increase their page size to 125% because when this forum was changed, I was like "Woah! The font's increased!" Yes indeedy, the font looks too big, in my opinion and I'm still at 100%
I'm not complaining though, I'd rather see bigger font than smaller font.
I have just checked the forum in another two different browsers and it's the same, HUUGGEEEEE! LOL
As for saying it looks drab and unwelcoming - far from it. I think it's looks tidier, fresh and easier to navigate with the more enhanced segregated sections. If I do have one quibble, it's that because of the larger font size, the page scroll is longer so I have to scroll further down to see all the forums than I used to have to.
Note I said "quibble". It's not enough of a problem to complain about it.
