  • Default Setting For Font

    Could there be a setting in our profile for the font we want to type in as default. I don't like the fact that I have to keep changing to my favourite font.

    I'm not particularly fond of it either, was actually going to suggest a setting configuration for default font/size/color myself but saw someone beat me to it. :P

            I didn't see any options for a default font so it doesn't look like it is a VIP thing. Perhaps I'm missing something though?
            I really do like this idea as it would certainly add a personal touch to each post a user names should they choose to set up a different font/color.

              I don't think that this is in the best interests of the forum. I do appreciate that it is attractive to personalize one's work. And we have added a lot of forum features to do just that e.g. profile customization.

              However generally speaking, a lot of people seem to pick fonts that are difficult to read. Presumably on a whim without really considering issues like legibility. If we add a per user default font setting, that extra convenience would mean that more people would specify idiosyncratic fonts. And the forum could become a real mess. Users can already use a font tag to specify a font. And that I think is a good compromise. It is just enough of a deterrent in terms of convenience to deter large numbers of people from choosing ill-advised fonts. But still allows members to choose a custom font if it is important to them.

              It's not that arduous to use a font tag. But it keeps the load on moderators to a manageable level. I know that I already spend too much time removing pure black and white fonts alone from posts. A pure black font being illegible on the standard theme and vice versa.

              So I have to vote no on this proposal. A reasonable alternative already being available for those who wish to use custom fonts.

                  I find your font colour very hard to read. However, I didn't mention the font colour I wanted a default setting for the actual font.
