Well done Ash and Norah...a big improvement overall, I like the new script etc and find it easy on the eye, but I wonder if it's possible to have an alternative "style" as some web pages do for those like Mamya who seem to be struggling with it?

Thanks

It was a shock at first. Damned if you do, damned if you don't, and damned if I haven't already gotten used to it.

I remember reading that serif fonts look better on paper, & sans-serif on computer screens (Ariel & Verdana are commonly used).

However, with today's Hi-Res monitors it might be moot :

Probably more a matter of personal preference.

BTW, Gmail allows one to set a default font, has lots of other goodies, & no ads dancing in one's face:

Trevor, thanks for the info on the plus and minus keys with Ctrl, I have used computers for years and didn't know that! It works! Thanks also to everyone for your kind words on the new look, I know Ash and the team in the office were very busy yesterday. I had been designated Forum Monitor and was passing messages across the airwaves all day!

I would just like to add my thanks to you Norah and Ash and anyone else who was helping yesterday. It must have been very hectic and to pick up on my small request to have the restart button put back for the Quick solve page was astonishing.

Change is always difficult to implement to everyones satisfaction, particularly when you are dealing with us younger people!!! But I have to say you managed it extremely well.
Well done to you all and thanks for a really good, free site.

I would also (belatedly) like to say a big thank you to you all - I think you handled all the concerns, hiccups etc with great aplomb in what must have an extremely difficult and stressful period. Well done.

Hi Ash and Norah

I too would like to say thankyou for all the hard work put into the new site. I avoided the site yesterday with all the tweaking etc and was pleasantly surprised today. Well done x
