Board update 2020-09-24


Toe

Recommended Posts

Not digging this 'Inter' font. Too wide, almost reminds me of Verdana or something.

 

And what's with the weird padding on post bodies? There's no reason for the post text to be indented more than the post's timestamp is. This is the bit of CSS responsible:

 

.ipsPad, .ipsApp ul.ipsPad, .ipsApp ol.ipsPad {
    padding: var(--sp-5);
}

 

The fine line between the bottom of the post text and the quote/+1 buttons should have a little space above it as well.

I'm not as fancy as @Toe but this line at the top of the board is a bit difficult to read:

I changed it back to the default.  Is that better?

Too small?  Blurry?  Not enough contrast?

Specifically that area that says "Board update 2020-09-24" - the font color and the board background are very similar. I.e. not enough contrast yes.

I was guessing it was just that part but wanted to make sure.

@Mavric Eh, now it's SegoeUI, not a whole lot better IMO.

 

Honestly, I think it's usually best to use a plain 'sans-serif' and let it use the system default (Calibri on Windows). And maybe bump the size up a notch.

Any idea what it was before?  There aren't a lot of options.

I changed the background to almost white and it was still pretty hard to read.  I think it's just faded too much in the code.

@Mavric Hmm, weird list, doesn't have any of the 'standard' fonts. I'd rather have Calibri than Segoe. Even just something like body { font-family: sans-serif } would suffice.

At least we still have the Comic Sans option in the drop-down.

@Mavric Actually, looking on Archive.org, it looks like we were on Roboto before. Try that?
