    ...is rubbish.

    All the other fonts used around the site are pretty clean and modern, this one here looks really old fashioned, a bit too Times New Roman for my liking.

    Also, it has problems with defining what's what. Is this a o or a 0?

    (first one is the letter, second is the number, you can barely distinguish between them)

    Any chance we can change it to something less traditional and something a bit smoother and easier to read?

    Sorry Wazz, I don't agree at all. I can clearly distinguish between the letter and the number, the font is clean and very readable.

    I think you should seriously check your browser settings if you think those characters look anything alike. The zero is nearly double the height of the o and less rounded.

    It's nowhere near twice the size, they're nearly identical. Browser font settings are all on the default.

    They're nowhere near identical. :\

    And your wrongness is about to be immortalised.

    I'm using the white theme, the font appears to be different to that which you see on the green theme. Probably why you guys aren't seeing it. Of course if I could upload an attachment I could show you but I can't :D

    Let's be honest here.

    The green theme has great nostalgia value.

    It has fucking awful aesthetic value.

    Nope, I find it highly readable. Hence why I hate reading forums that don't use it :)

    It's very readable, but then I didn't say it wasn't. I said its aesthetics are poor. :)

    Well I think it's lovely. So... there.

    Yeah I think it looks great too. It even makes your silly match avatar look half decent.

    I wouldn't mind a more modern green theme, but it's very dated IMO.

    Design one then, Deebs will let you.

    I wouldn't have the first clue how to.

    Also, is there a way to set your posting font to a different one/size by default?
