Default Forum Font Size

Is it too small? should I tweak it up a bit (post text and sub-forum headings etc?)

I view the forum with chrome set at 110% full size. Probably better to increase the font size on the forum?

Not sure that makes any difference. I had a melt down (solid state drive failed) and had to redo all my bookmarks when back on. I noticed the font was small on many pages, but I just adjusted it to suit me using the browser sizing. I am using 120% on our page... and YES I am getting older.

I think it’s fine Mike. But then I do only ever use my iPhone to view the forum.

I have it on good authority - size doesn't matter.
Tweaking may have a detrimental effect on ocular performance.
Not that I'd really know about these things.
Ahem.

I tell you what...I'll increase it by the smallest step possible, which I think will be about a 10% increas. If it's terrible shout out and I'll dial it back again.

Ok it's 10% larger. Problem with using browser settings to make the pages look larger is that photos are degraded (look blurry a bit, sharpness gone). If you can see the page without doing that it's better. I can drop my 110% back to 100% now and it looks fine to me. Bill A- unfortunately you will have to drop your 120% back to 110% to get the same effect - and still lose the sharpness in some photos.

No problem, I'll turn it back. But like I said the loss is the sharpness of the images if we view the forums with our browsers above 100%.
Of course you might not notice such a thing but I do. Probably more noticeable on PC monitors that smaller devices.

(I'll change it back in the morning - it's about 10 different settings)
