Is it just me or are the reply, compose and post new topic buttons quite blurry?

Fuzzy here too

 

Running a MBP 13" @ 1680x1050 resolution

 

Even the "technology community" under the geekzone logo looks bad

Must be something to do with the "scaled" resolution then

I assume you're using MacOS with a retina display...

 

The default resolution generates blurry icons as it is literally "zooming" them to fit your display. For example, on my MacBook Air 2018 on the "default" resolution I get this (as an example - still looks fine on my MacBook but will appear blurry to everyone else):

 

 

And then on the standard "Scaled - More Space" mode I operate at I get the same screenshot, with the same dimensions and comparing the two it looks the exact same despite me screenshotting what appears to be a far smaller area. Now, how is this? Scaling just simply zooms the screen to put it in laymen's terms - the screen itself is essentially driven at the same resolution however MacOS "enlarges" all elements to make them appear bigger. This causes elements to appear fuzzy on many web pages. This also happens on apps not optimised, and also happens on Windows if you enable scaling mode on high resolution displays.

 

So - totally normal and doesn't just happen with Geekzone. Go into System Preferences, Display and scale at "More Space" to sorta fix it.

 

Also - looks totally fine to me unless if I operate my MacBook at the "default" resolution.

Don´t like the "more space" option, prefer to have the retina screen displaying at "the right" resolution with higher quality.

 

If you are doing 1:1 pixels you are not getting the benefits of the retina display, and things get really tiny.

 

Can be fixed by creating the graphics in 2x resolution, and scaling them down in CSS/HTML. Then you get a nice crisp image on retina screens as well.
