Tiny Print

B5TV on KoshN's Screen (03/19/2003)

Any way I can make the print larger?

See how much of the screen I'm not using?

Re: Tiny Print

The site is constrained to fit within 800x600 so text size won't affect the gaps each side.

There will be content in the bar to the left of the board though, so there is a bit more to come.

Re: Tiny Print

You also said the font size would be increased a bit, too, didn't you Antony?

Re: Tiny Print

Am I the only one here who finds smaller text easier to read?

I can't stand large type. It just looks so... horribly ugly.

Re: Tiny Print

It's not a matter of not liking the way it looks for me, Derian. I'm going to get headaches if I'm here for a long time squinting trying to read this small type.

I couldn't care less if I find the print ugly or not. I hope it can get just a bit bigger so I can read it more easily.

Agreed! On my screen, the print is about 9 point, and that's a bit difficult to read from two feet away.

Re: Tiny Print

Oh, I wasn't jsut talking about the aesthetics... I actually physicall find it easier to read at this size.. which looks to be about 8pt on my screen res.

To each their own. It's a little odd, I know, especially considering my eyesight, but I've always found small type easier to read, provided I'm not trying to do so from any sort of a distance.

Re: Tiny Print

Why don't we take a poll?

1. Would like larger print.

2. Keep the print the size it is now. It's perfectly fine.



One of you moderator types would have to make the actual poll.

Re: Tiny Print

There's no need for a poll. I will just offer two choices, and the user chooses what they want.

Re: Tiny Print

This is just fine for my eyes, and I'm on a small monitor and pretty far away from the screen.
