Tossing it to the fellers here.

What is going on that is causing some of these folks issues?

It is a pretty agitated bunch over in "About the Forum."

And, I am having no problem whatsoever on three machines.

CTRL + Scroll wheel

Really, it is true, some people aren't happy unless they are bitching.

It's crazy that I thought it was a font change too. Until I realized that underlined links were gone.

Eh.

I noticed the change too. I'm using Firefox so all I need to do is ctrl plus x to enlarge the font.

I was guessing it might be color-blind folks having trouble spotting links without underlines.

The one post that mentioned CSS issues is probably on target. What I find totally lame is that none of the whingers figured out how to do an "Alt -printscreen" to capture an image of the problem. I mean sheesh, what part of SHOW ME don't they understand?

Bowie,

I am somewhat colorblind, and am having no issues at all.

I'm running with the "CSS Sheets issues" deal, because that is something else of which I have no understanding.

I'm finding everything more clear and sharp and love the way it looks. My major peeve with forums is not thinking about how clearly formed letters are in a font becaue its a lot harder to read some than others.

That's not the issue (or at least that's what I got from all the confusing posts over there) it's the change in the underline. It went from a thick line to a thin line.

For a comparison. I can understand why the change bothers some people. I imagine some people keyed on that thick line and their "base" is now gone.
