    The Reason Marco Use A Big Font Revealed

    Lot of you have complained about my 5 size font.

    Theres a reason for that.Im not sure if i already said it in the past.In case i didnt.I will reveal why.

    Some of you possibly though that i had 5 size font on purpose to piss you off.Which was not the case.I really need 5 size font.Which is not that big to begin with.You only have to compare 5 size font to 7 size font.You see that 5 size font is reasonable.

    The reason i need a bigger font is because im myope.Which means,a visual defect in which distant objects appear blurred because their images are focused in front of the retina rather than on it,nearsightedness.Also called short sight.So,my eyes can see well if its something close to me.But,something far,i will see blurry.

    So,the reason i have to write with bigger font,is because its better that way.If only all the comments were only in 5 size font.But,at least i still can read your regular size font.But,its still easier to read when the font is bigger.

    I can at least have my own comments as 5 size font.Which is good.Mostly from somebody who english is not is first language.So,my english gets better because of the bigger font.

    I tried 3 size font and 4 size font in the past.But,its not big enough for me.5 size font is the right size.

    Theres no need for you to type huge font bigger than 5 size anymore.Just to make fun of my 5 size font.

    I wear contact lenses since i was a teen.I cant watch tv or anything without my contact lenses.Typing without my contact lenses would be a mess.Because it would be blurred.So,i wear contact lense.So,when i watch tv or something from distance,i see well.

    Maybe some of you are myope and understand.You either wear glasses or contact lenses.

    So,now you know that i have to type in 5 size font.Nobody choose to be myope.It just happens.

    I don't have a problem with the big font. Comic Sans MS isn't exactly my favourite font style though

    Thanks.I thought it was time to say something about it.My threads are known to have a bigger font than most people here.I was tired of the negative comments about my 5 size font.So,i had to make a thread about it.So,others can stop typing the huge 7 size font only to make fun of me.

    The most important is that i can see well.So,5 size font works well for me.

    I was going to say ... make the entire screen larger because even when you type in size five it does not display as such until you upload it BUT if you increase the screen size with ctrl + then everything is bigger.

    aside my own little pet peeve . Something I suppose we would have learned early on in printing and typing but is not addressed in the html standard or in common use , that there is a maximimum line length after which the likelihood of the human eye beginning at the correct next drops drastistically . I suspect this is why many spreadsheets incl Excel include the option of adding a semi-visible line every so many .

    Re: The Reason Marco Use A Big Font Revealed

    People make fun of it because it's a weak tactic too often used by attention starved 2edgy4me trolls. If somebody is absentmindedly scrolling through a thread, a larger/coloured/emboldened text is going to catch their attention more than the standard font will. When the goal is to get more people to read and react to purposely incendiary posts, it helps to have something that will catch their eye. Think Kane.

    Also, as LilBit mentioned, ctrl + is a much better alternative. It will make all text larger and easier for you to see, and your posts wont be grating for everybody else to look at. Win win.

    Since a couple weeks ago.I found the ctrl trick in a youtube video.He said that you have to type ctrl+ and the screen looks bigger.It works.Which i was happy to find out.Its much easier to read.Sites comes in all sizes of font.Small,average or big.Its often small fonts.So,now i can see better because of the larger screen.But,5 size font is the best for me when i type.Because i cant read too much if the letters are smaller than 3 size font.My eyes are sensible to it.I can read regular size letters for some time.But,not too long.

    If you press the control button and scroll your mouse wheel forward, everything on your browser will increase in size. If you scroll it backward, everything will decrease in size.

    We're not all blessed with good eyesight, so don't sweat it.

    I've never had a problem with your larger text, nor the fact it was blue, or that you like comic sans. Just as you can use control+ to increase the font size, folks can use the control- sign to decrease the size. I find it a waste of energy to get angry at folks

    I wear contact lenses.Im not sure about the contact lenses i wear.The optician said that i can wear 2 left contact lenses.Since,my 2 eyes are not the same force.But,still not different enough to wear a left and a right contact lense.Because usualy,contact lenses have a right lense for right eye and a left lense for left eye.The optician told me i could wear 2 left lense.My left eye is not the same force as my right eye.But,kind of similar.So,i can wear 2 left contact lenses.

    Everybody have a stronger eye than the other.You can put your hand in front of you right eye and after put your hand in front of your left eye.You will see that 1 eye is stronger than the other.

    I have to go get boxes of new contact lenses next week.Each pair of contact lenses must be changed once a month.Each boxes have 3 pair of contact lenses.

    I used to think about having the lazer thing to get perfect vision.But,the Final Destination 5 movie optician scene freaked me out.I know that the risk of something like that happening is very weak.But still.Its scary.

    Im used to wear contact lenses.

    You can adjust the font size in the operating system preferences or browser itself without zoom function.

    But then:
    • why didn't your doctor explain to you how to deal with computers?
    • you still have a problem reading our comments at standard size

    First: Still when you writte you see the test in average size.

    second: ussing glasses or lens you shouldn't have any different problem than a not myope

    third: this doen't explain the coloured founts you used in the past, wich indeed made text more difficult to read.

    I'm myope by the way.

    If that's the case, shouldn't you set your pC to make everyone's font bigger?

    Also, when you type, the font is still the same size, no?

    I'm very myope. When I'm tired I can't see at usual type size any more so I use ctrl + to see more easily.

    I don't quite understand why you need to type in size 5 if you can use ctrl +.

    Marco, I'm sorry to hear it. I have extreme myopia, but contacts are able to correct it for me, including the presbyopia that came with age.

    I'm curious though. How do you read other posters' fonts if you need a five to read your own? It really sounds like using the magnifying option is the best solution.

    I completely understand...I'm very nearsighted too. Although I can read the font on JUSB fine (with my glasses). But, I have trouble with anything smaller.

    I feel mean saying this. But, I can wait for the day all the computer programers get old and they can't the small font they like to use for everything.

    I'm tyring to type this sentence without my glasses. I'll bet there will be a least one mis-spelling.

    I have the zoom for this page set 125%, because it strains my eye less.

    Oooooh! I didn't know you could do that. I just set mine to 150% and suddenly JUB becomes bigger, better and much easier for this old guy's eyes to read.

    I'm baffled by this one as well. For years, he's been using the big font. Now it's just black, but he used to do colours all of the time. He uses the big font because of his eyesight, but he doesn't need the font after he's written something. He will type in the usual size 3 font, and that is how he will see it. He will also see (almost) everyone else's posts in the same default size 3 font.

    He may have vision difficulties, but the big font seems to be for our benefit, not his. He doesn't need it after he's written it.

    And there I thought Marco's gonna make a more normal, less argumentative thread dreams dreams dreams...

    Back to the topic. I have quite high myopia (> -4 dioptri), I have accommodation problems I have to wear specially designed multifocal (YES, MULTIFOCAL) spectacles and yet I still prefer to read in the smallest font as possible. Unless your myopia is worst than -8 dioptri (which soft lenses may not be able to correct, as far as I know), reading size-12 fonts at the reasonable reading distance should be no problem.

    Which is why I find your reasoning weird. Plus you don't seem to have difficulty reading our comments (unless if you use the zoom technique).

    Then again, you can change the default font size in your browser to suit your need. No need to use extremely large fonts which annoys many readers except those who are advantaged by large fonts.

    But oh well. You don't post that often too.
    come now, my child. if we were planning to harm you, do you think

    I believe some older browsers will not zoom the text in text fields. If you use the WYSIWYG editor here however, the text in the editor will be huge as well.

    people may tease you about your fonts (or your grammar) because those are easy targets. but the reason they get riled up to being with is the content of your posts. so, good news?

    Back to the topic. I have quite high myopia (> -4 dioptri), I have accommodation problems I have to wear specially designed multifocal (YES, MULTIFOCAL) spectacles and yet I still prefer to read in the smallest font as possible. Unless your myopia is worst than -8 dioptri (which soft lenses may not be able to correct, as far as I know), reading size-12 fonts at the reasonable reading distance should be no problem.

    Which is why I find your reasoning weird. Plus you don't seem to have difficulty reading our comments (unless if you use the zoom technique).

    Then again, you can change the default font size in your browser to suit your need. No need to use extremely large fonts which annoys many readers except those who are advantaged by large fonts.

    But oh well. You don't post that often too.
    Cunt!

    Recently I heard a 'wise guy' story that I had a party at my home for twenty-five men. It's an interesting story, but I don't know twenty-five men I'd want to invite to a party. ~Joan Crawford
