Generally good.  Agree with the points about making the user details section in forums a little crisper.  They take up a lot of vertical space even for single line forum posts.  Some of the bold and underlined titles and hyperlinks are now 'to' big in my opinion, for example to 'Friends' section on the homepage.

networkn: Is it possible to allow the choice by way of an option to switch back to the old font. I am finding this new font ... far from ideal.



I agree, but as a temporary measure you can set zoom to 90% on chrome and it will help you in the meanwhile -

Yah it helped, but it messes with all the buttons, they look blurry etc. 

I run 3 x 1440P monitors.

the buttons look horrible, composing replies look horrible, its not sitting well at the moment, but i guess if you visit the page more often than before, you will get accustomed faster. hahahaha

freitasm: I have dropped the font to 13px now.



That is MUCH better. 

Did it also affect the left hand side list of users etc? That is quite distracting in the larger font.

freitasm: Yes, it did. But might drop that left side to 12px later.



I think that would be ideal.

Main body text of messages is fine.
Left hand column, especially the user NAME seems intense.  Some of these fonts don't handle the larger sizes as nicely.

Looks really good to me, nice work.

Working really well in Chrome and Firefox on Windows.

I did notice some odd behaviour on mobile (Android) though - posts that had quotes seemed to be in a smaller font when using Chrome:

Click to see full size

Versus Firefox:

Click to see full size

Readability on mobile was much better - I usually have to go landscape and zoom. But now work really well in portrait.

freitasm: How is the left box and the editor now?

Pretty much perfect I'd say.
