Or am I alone?

I really like it.

I thought my eyesight had gone weird. It changed as I changed pages!

It looks a little squished...

Yep, just got it and what the flaming fuck?

The font is less readable on posting. A lot of grey shit.

This is not about age but get it black MNHQ so we can all read it.

Like what I do with my students, you knobbers.

Equal Opps reading. Kind of thing.

I thought my laptop had thrown a wobbly or I'd somehow changed the font. blush

S'okay. All new things take a while?

I don't like it.

It seems - childish - is the word that springs to mind.

I think it's the font.

It's not a serif font which makes reading lots of text tricky (heaven help those that write epic novels in their OP) and when you don't use Enter it's too close together.

I like the font. Just not for this purpose.

I do like the halo emoji though.

The overall look is tidier but the font is very hard to read.

I quite like it.

AntiquityReRises Wed 16-Mar-16 11:50:53

Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhhh! Chaaaaaaaange!!

runs away screaming

Also, the font makes me feel sick.

FreshwaterSelkie Wed 16-Mar-16 11:51:47

I like it. It's a lot crisper, more modern. Clearer to read on my screen too. And usually I hate change!

Awholelottanosy Wed 16-Mar-16 11:52:36

I'm on my phone so it looks the same to me! What's happened?

LurkingHusband Wed 16-Mar-16 11:53:28

Of all the things they could improve change, they picked something minor and cheap.

I suspect MNHQ are running the site using the politicians handbook ...

I think the text on posts needs to be bigger. Its a good size when you are writing the post so maybe increase it to that.

Pinkheart5915 Wed 16-Mar-16 11:55:05

I thought I'd done something to my iPad at first but I do now think it's easier to read and tidier

doughnutslikefannys Wed 16-Mar-16 11:55:09

I don't like sans serif fonts in general and now the site hurts my eyes.

I thought it was me at first, I kept refreshing!

Nanny0gg Wed 16-Mar-16 11:57:50

I'm on my phone so it looks the same to me! What's happened?

They've made the desktop site look like the App (I believe).

It's even worse when it's emboldened.

WorraLiberty Wed 16-Mar-16 11:58:11

I like it.

BarbaraofSeville Wed 16-Mar-16 12:05:08

Oh, it's supposed to look like this?

I thought it was either my eyes or my PC being crap.

No, don't like it.

tiggytape Wed 16-Mar-16 12:07:18

When typing in the text box, the font is feint and skinny and weirdly spaced.

Once posted, the font on the threads, seems to change to one that is O.K in small doses (one line responses) but awful when reading long OPs or long replies. It is making my eyes go weird as it doesn't look like every reply is in the same font either.

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Wed 16-Mar-16 12:07:24

I like it and find it less squished and much easier to read so does what we see depend on variables like how we have our settings set? (I realise that makes no sense at all but I am really struggling with short term memory at the moment so I lose the words I am looking for)

Obs2016 Wed 16-Mar-16 12:08:02

I cant even work out what's changed. Please someone explain - in idiot proof language. But it looks AWFUL.
