    Has anyone else noticed the "new" forum look. Seems like the text is lighter and somewhat harder to read. Also, when clicking onto a post, it is telling me that it is an error and must reload.

    Anything new happening with the website right now? :confused:

    We are looking into that problem now.

    We'll see what we can do about the font size / font color.

    We should have the crashing issues fixed. We've also made the font darker so it is easier to read. We did have to reset and upgrade the entire site, so having to log back in was an unfortunate but necessary thing :(

    It does seem darker the font--but size is smaller. The look is very clean. I am not having the crash anymore! Thank you!

    We didn't reduce the font size, just made it darker. We did reduce the font size of the usernames, but that's it... It's using 12 pixel fonts right now. We can go up to 13.

    I guess it depends on what OS you are running and resolution of the video cards on older PC's All macs have high resolution displays I will check out the sites on a couple of older PC computers I have at work The fonts look great on the iPad same as Appleforums.net as far as I can tell.

    Everything here is fine, but when I go to Active Topics, everything is so very small. That is the only page. I am on my computer, I don't use the app, and I am not sure what it will look like when I get on the ipad.

    SweetPoison-that's where I noticed the font size issue was on my pc...with a 19inch screen. Maybe going 1 size up might be better as suggested earlier.

    Seems hard for me to get used to the new look by now.
    While hope all will be better a little later..
