Yes, all the forum sections (Hot Topics, Rorum Index, Latest Topics, My Topics, etc.) as well as the sub index (Gaming, Nintendo, Sony, etc.) appear to have a smaller font than before, and also smaller than the one in each thread.

And you mean (specifically) the "green" thread titles themselves? Are ALL the text that appears on the listing pages?

I swear (and I've just double-checked to confirm), NONE of this was touched - not even for the "dark mode" changes. I only changed font colors within the threads themselves, not on those listing pages...    ...weird!!

The whole text from left to right is smaller: Thread titles, authors, numbers.

I've also noticed that within a thread the text for the Agree functionality seems to have shrunk by the same amount as the text on the topics page. It's odd that within a thread only the Agree functionality is assigned with a smaller than before font size while everything else looks still the same as before. Maybe there's a connection somewhere.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I didn't change the text size, anywhere - only the colors. Maybe white on black happens to LOOK smaller than black on white? You should be able to open side-by-side tabs (one in dark and one non-dark) and compare...

 

Edit: And yes, I've confirmed by doing exactly as I suggested (opening a page in "dark", and then opening a duplicate page in a separate tab in non-dark) - the font sizes are all EXACTLY the same.

I am using the normal theme, that's why I used this thread instead of the one dedicated to the dark theme.

Also, I am not saying you deliberately changed the text size. I've followed both this and the other thread, and you've already said it yourself how intertwined the code on this website is, hence why some things change despite no intention of doing so.

Ultimately, I'd just prefer bigger text when browsing the list of topics, so the reason why the text got smaller isn't important. Please make the text bigger when you have the time for it. It's not something urgent, just something that I've noticed myself and then saw that two other people in this thread already mentioned the same thing.

Yeah, just going to throw my hat in the ring here: The font size of the "forum topics" on the front page is definitely smaller.

Thanks for all the hard work TalonMan.

agreed, even in a few days of work the place has a lot of features tidied up a great amount, I have noticed that the server seems to be unreachable a tiny bit more often in the last few days, just if this is related to your work in the background might it be an idea to place some form of a "work in progress" notification on the front page just to let users know that it's because you're working like a mo fo in the background.

 

and in a non private area

 

Sorry for being a twat to you before!

(you need to return to the Switch 3rd party thread to make sure someone doesn't take your crown!!)

Well, I don't know where the problem was, but text has got back it's usual size.

Thanks for fixing it.

Yeah - it wasn't a size change, it was the actual font style itself, that had somehow gotten changed. I put it back - all good...



I gotta say old man! You do deliver, i will aswell! Blue sexy as hell

WHERE IS MY KORORINPA 3

I've got this once before and I got this again:

As you can see, there's no 'Reject all' button that seems to be fairly common. As you can also see, the list is really, really long. As you might have guessed, I'm not going to click that many things manually. And as you might guess, this doesn't exactly make me want to not block ads here. I don't mind allowing ads from sites I want to support, and I would love to allow them here, but as you can see, there are certain... issues.

Also, that's a ridiculously long list of trackers.
