    Verdana, which is sans-serif, is a much easier to read font than Times New Roman so how about making the default post font Verdana so those of us who try to be considerate of others don't have to manually change our text every time we post something?

    I like verdana too.

    Maybe a better idea is to store per-user defaults, for font, pitch, color, etc.

    (Can I get an ASR-33 font please? :^)

    Yes, this was a suggestion way back when the new forum software was adopted. My pet peeve is the bizarre way Times New Roman presents numerals - very small and partially below the line. They are even more difficult to read than the rest of the characters.

    Or how about a way to set a preference for a font in our profile?

    I have Customize fonts settings in my browser. Won't that work ?

    I guess it would depending on which browser you're using. I'm using Chrome and have my default fonts set to Verdana, but Times shows up here. I suppose I could download an extension that would allow me to customize scripts so no matter what I view it'll be in Verdana but on the whole it would be easier/better for users here just to have Verdana as the default font.

    How about Arial?

    Good luck in this quest - pretty sure this battle was lost a long long time ago.

    I agree - anything other than the kinda icky default font would be wonderful. It's just a few mouse clicks to change. Not rocket science.

    But all the zillion requests back when the software changed were not acted upon.

    I've just gotten used to it. So posters change the font on every post - and for a while I did that but don't bother anymore.

    Just my 2/100 of a buck

    If I could choose, I'd use Morse Code font:

    I'd like the ability to set my default font and size for editing too.
