I've noticed a trend where people changes their fonts when posting to look much different than the standard font for the forum. For some people it makes it difficult to speed read the forum since your eye must adapt to various different fonts and typefaces from post to post. Is there, or could there, be a way to set a global setting to disable these typefaces and have each post use the default font?

There is a setting under My Account --> General Settings to hide 'User Customization' but this setting does not apply to typefaces while posting. Perhaps it could be extended to also cover that?

Thanks for reading.

it is a bit annoying to say the least.... But if it is used properly and not used over the top

I have no problem with it to much, but it does need to be toned down a wee bit

The features are awesome, but people will over use them too much

I don't have a problem with it on principle but each persons vision is different and for some, myself included, it makes it harder to read the forum. So an option to turn it off should benefit everyone.

Your custom font is probably the worst since it's harder to read the quoted posts when the words all bleed into each other.

Yeah it hurts my eyes honestly. It would be nice to be able to disable the option for yourself. I have no problem with members having the option though. Just wish I didn't have to see it. Some aren't as bad as others, Ryan's makes me feel like I'm having a seizure. :snicker

It basically looks bold now. It's your choice man. My eyes aren't bleeding now if it's any consolation. :snicker

Lol, that's seriously what I do. Especially ones that are really hard on the eyes.
