I'm wearing my glasses.

It really weird.

I have a headache.

I might have to go and do something useful sad

Oh no sad

That headache is too much MN. I heaed its common. I dread the day sad

<sticks out tongue and strops off>

I suspect I have done something silly to my computer, but other sites are ok.

I am a computer-illiterate knum-knut

Isnt there a setting for font?

Its a bit odd that its only MN though.

I've done the same thing to mine, how weird! It was definitely me but I can't figure out how to embiggen it again so I'm peering at it like an old lady!

I think there might be font size settings in the right click menu. Im on my phone so I cant check.

Post in geeky stuff maybe!!

Erm, it's back to normal now blush.

I have no idea why, but I'm going to nicely assume that Tech fixed it for me despite the lack of immediate attention from mnhq on this thread and send him thanks

My MN and only my MN keeps going small. I have to keep setting the view back to 100% to fix it. It's happening randomly but not on any other site.

MaryZZZZZZZZZZZZ, what did you have to offer Tech in order to procure a patch for it? Come on, out with it.

Oh, SOH, I just loooooooooooooooooooooooove your Hallowe'en name.

Seeing it makes me feel all autumnal every year.

Mine fixed itself when I closed and reopened Chrome, so I suppose I did something stupid, not that I would admit that to Tech, of course.

Especially as he didn't even have the manners to appear on my very important thread shock

Sometimes the way to fix making something appear big/small is to hold down ctrl and either + or - depending on which way you want the font to go. It's a magnifying shortcut smile

CharminglyOdd I LOVE YOU! I've been squinting at tiny MN all week!

Mine keeps doing this when a side advert shows as a banner advert, everything looks tiny.

ShowOfBloodyStumps Thu 11-Oct-12 17:56:02

Oh I can fix it by going into the view menu or doing the ctrl + thingy. I know all the fixes for 'shit which occurs when your dc bangs the keyboard'. But it keeps going back to being tiny for no apparent reason. Definitely only on MN too.

I too like my Hallowe'en name. I wish I could come up with a Christmas name that is equally pleasing. My Hallowe'en name even comes with a theme tune all of its very own.

I don't really want to mention the C word, but could you do something like ShowOfHandmadeChristmasCake (or Fudge or Decorations), or something like that?

I saw that link last year. It's great.
