I'm guessing you are under the "Skyward Sword" skin? If you go to the very bottom of the page on the forum, you will see a "Change Theme" button. You can choose a different theme, if you'd like. The other skins use Arial, I believe?

 

If you use Sweet Skin, you'll be in for a surprise! ;]

Actually you do have a point, sometimes when I use this ---> :D

 

...it looks really strange with how "pointy" the text is. I also agree that since is no true "one font to rule them all", perhaps Slasher can experiment with some other fonts and select a nice default one.



Oh... I guess my suggestion is sort of invalid if there are skins. Sorry about that x_x

 

Oh don't worry about it, this is our main skin since the "Classy" skin was the one we had before this Skyward Sword one. Well we did have the IP Board default skin but nobody should ever use that because it's so boring.

 

As for the "Sweet Skin" that one was for an April Fools' joke since it's so bad. XD

It certainly could be a worse font, it could always be Comic Sans MS! Arial and Tahoma are two pretty good fonts to use for a neutral one.

Actually since Trinity is currently stealing Slasher's laptop, I will see what I can do right now.

Yeah it's also kind of weird how the font is different while typing.

Oh yeah that's just some thing that people use to test out what certain fonts look like. Here's an article on it.

Well yeah, there has already been a few members that would prefer a San Serif font instead of a Serif one.

Okay seriously that took wayyyyy longer than it should have but I've finally did it.

 

I believe this should be the exact same font that was used in the Classy skin but I dunno I wasn't really paying much attention oops.

It's good Mage, sadly it seems to have off-centered the username's on each post.

Maybe the post number on each post, might need a little positioning.

Your welcome~

 

Okay as far as I can tell, everything should be good - the font, the usernames, and the post number in the upper-right corner.

But, I'm the one who made the Skyward skin useable. What about me.
Besides, I'm kind of assisting Mage when he asks about this stuff anyways. :v

It is not that weird, I use Arial on my website and it don't hurt things. I have never been a Times New Roman kind of person. I don't like how it looks. This is in Arial so you know.

 

Here is the same post in Lucida Sans Unicode:

See the difference and why I like Arial now? I like Lucida Console which this forum does not have too. Also Note I never changed the font size for this explanation too.
