    Maybe it's just me, but did some fonts switch from Arial to Times New Roman?? Anyone?

    Thanks for asking. Not sure of the answer either, but I thought it was just my PC going nuts for some reason... The font change seems to only be on this forum and I watch 3 of them. I've also noticed that this forum over the last several days does not seem to be keeping good track of threads I've read from session-to-session as others still are, and I loose what I thought were "saved" things such as my signature between sessions some times as well.

    Roger that. We seem to have a font change situation on our hands.

    I thought I had just pushed a wrong button or something.

    Apparently. It just changed on me today.


    It not keeping good track of read threads has been an issue for the longest time. It's been around since I signed up who-knows-when. I've been annoyed with that for a long time but it seems that nobody else posted about it till you (after me, of course)...

    I guess great minds think alike because I was thinking my computer was messing up the fonts also. I guess they were bored over there and instead of making regional forums or a new classifieds page they just decided to change some fonts.

    I haven't had much problem with updating/tracking read threads, but where these other fonts are showing up, it's less read-able than it was before.

    Looks like the font has been changed.
    Not sure to which one, but it is certainly easier on the eyes,

    If I''m not mistaken the font is Helvetica and it is set at 11 points.
    As to threads, they do get squirrely don't they?

    Looks like they changed yet again (easier on the eyes I might add) but initially made me wonder if I had had too much chianti with dinner....:eek:

    no chianti makes the fonts look smaller... but you don't really care.

    I thought it just made things blurrier.

    Not entirely, the blur is caused in part due to driving increasingly fast after the chianti consumption...:eek:
