    Thank you, but much as I'd like to take a bow :) (you can, however, since it was your post that put the issue on the table), Jon agreed to consider a change, and it was Kim, from the Land Down Under, who designed the forum and pointed us towards this font.

    It is a little cleaner IMO.

    I did see her post and added my thanks to her as well. I felt stupid asking for it, but figured why not. Things panned out and I'm glad I didn't look like a nitpicker! Maybe instead of an Uber Prepared trophy I can get Serif Killer!

    I've noticed a lot of "guests" on the new forum. word must be getting around. Hopefully they will check out the forum store.

    Most of those "Guests" are search engines looking for keywords. Sorry.

    I like it! Serif Killer! :mad: Throughout the annals of history, few have had the courage to publicly denounce the dreaded serif — but willydigger can now count himself among the few! Perhaps a new avatar is in order.


    I shot the serif2.jpg

    Will make sense to those who remember the 1970s song by the great Eric Clapton.

    And now I'll go about the task of self-moderating, since I've veered really off-course here. Blame it on post-conversion euphoria. :nah_disagree:

    I just wanted to say that the new forum is very responsive. I haven't been on in a while but I'm noticing a much smoother experience and I haven't changed my setup. Great job.

    Nice new look to the forum! Haven't been on EDCF in a little bit so was a nice surprise.
    However, I'm now empty pockets, and don't seem to have my old post-count? =( Which is ironic because I can't even go back to my own old sale threads.


    EDIT: Ok, read in another thread that the cron job that updates such things, triggers upon first login to the new site, so I will lay low and just see if that fixes things. Carry on!
