    I just made available a new style here at XenForo.com - it's the same as the normal one, except it's using the classic Helvetica font instead of the usual Trebuchet / Georgia / Calibri combination that XenForo normally uses.

    Anyone like it? It's very clean, and emboldened Helvetica text is much more obvious than emboldened Trebuchet... Still, I'm not proposing a change to the default, I'm just trying stuff out :)

    That is very clean. I kinda like it.

    Edit: Maybe the node titles could be a bit smaller.

    I like it...will probably use it as my default for a little while and see how it feels.

    I like it very much.

    It's almost the same as my default style :)

    Death to serif fonts :D

    Unusually for XF, but I like it.

    I use sans-serif font too in my custom style.

    I'll be the exception. It looks, feels far to big and wide, I much prefer the font which is currently default.

    I like it better than the original. Can you change it for Gruesome Colors? [​IMG]

    I don't like it so much for the posts, but the navbar and node titles look nice with it. I still prefer default for the numbers and other information on the sidebar though.

    Hm after months using the serif font-style I'll stay with the original one.

    13px Tahoma is still, in my eyes, the best font for forum posts.

    oh this is way better imo! I can actually read stuff without quite as much effort (I'm dyslexic and I find the serif fonts really hard to read). :)

    It works, but I personally prefer the font currently used. ;)

    Same here, this far more easier to read for me.

    much better and more relaxing to read..........
    still the font-size of the button "Post New Thread" is very very small compared to the font-size of the navigation-items.

    Am I feeling a font switcher feature coming to xenforo?

    It's nice, but I definitely like the default one better, hope it stays!

    That was one of my suggestions. It's strange that for such a textual concept, there was never a user setting for font change in any forum software.

    I personally find Verdana easiest to read but I'm really grateful for this theme because it's so much easier, even if it's not as easy as Verdana is for me. I guess it's a personal thing, but thanks for making this! :)
