    Awesome forum with very nice functionalities, I love it.

    I just have a slight problem with the default font in forum posts.
    It hurts my eyes after a while. Not because it's ugly : actually it's a nice font.
    It happens to be a serif font I guess it may be called like this.

    Is there any way to add a preference somewhere so I can have a default font when I read that appears as a sans-serif font like arial or stuff like that.

    TLDR :

    Font like this is cute but is tiring my eyes.
    Font like this is less cute but is less tiring to read.
    i'd like an option to change the font by default please !

    I'll look into a font change, but there is no option to allow it to be user configurable at this time.

    Ack I wouldn't want other people that liked the current font to be upset.

    The text hurts my eyes after awhile but not because of the font style. I think it is the fact that it is a pure white on black and during long reads I notice it the most.


    Making the font slightly grey would help tremendously with this. It is a lot easier on the eyes in my opinion.

    Ha maybe that would help without hanging the font. Then again it should maybe use a blueish gray to keep up with the overall forum style ?

    Like this for example ?

    I also find that the white on black hurts my eyes after a while. I find that the font is just fine. The slightly grey text is a bit easier on the eyes.

    I don't really have to many problems with the text, the extreme contrast does get a bit tiring on the eyes haha, the slight grey does seem like a nice option while still readable. ^^ or really any color as long as it's not like as white as can possibly get. = P
