remove the font size button?

Status: Not For Us

im all for people personalising their replies with different fonts and colours but when it comes to size some people put them up over double the size of everyones elses and it just makes it a bit distracting (not to mention more scrolling for the rest of us!) would it be possible to take it off or is it a lithium thing we cant change?

If you see this and it's clearly distracting, please reports - the Educators always contact the member if it's ridiculous. But sometime's it's needed and sometimes it is freedom of choice.

Soory for disagreeing but personally i do not like the idea, unless if all posts are posted in a larger (e.g.10pt to 12pt), as we would have to keep in mind those people who can't read so easily.

The most simple idea possible, but I entirely agree - Huge font sizes mixed with Very small fonts tend to look a bit unprofessional. Smiley Tongue

@cricpk people who cant read so well arent benifitted at all by big font sizes  as its so varied! they should just zoom in! thank you james! it just doesnt look great...

 @andy0 i meant to the whole place - mainly the help section but really the whole community could do with the unity...

Personally, I think it's good to add a bit of personality to your posts !!

 

IF something should go, it should be the LARGE UGLY BADGES Smiley Mad  just sayinnnn ......

yep, the large badges should be first out of the door, but using text only to over-dramatize isn't necessary either

personality with colour and font changes i have less of a problem with its the HUGE FONTS that make it really bad...

Personally I don't like the use of non standard text sizes and fonts so I'm in agreement there.  

 

However there are cases where I can see it is OK, so rather than a physical restriction on this I would like to see the guidelines updated to suggest this and then people can be pointed to the guidelines when this isn't adhered to. Smiley Happy

Colour - Perfectly fine, it creates an in-depth way to express that person, but a font size? No, just no - Nothing can be expressed here, accept an unexplained appointment with the opticians.
