The new forums are horrible and CCP should feel bad about it.

Customizable font size. Is it asking too much?

Oh yeah! Just noticed this.

And what's with all the blank space in the margins?

What I like about the new forums is that I can block people who make useless posts and waste my time. Roll

I'm just going to post I would love the option to change the font color and thickness. This slight grey text-on-dark grey background is killing my eyes after a while. I need to highlight the entire page to properly read it. CCP you have failed with any sort of accessibility functions.

Or CTRL+scroll wheel, but for some whiners this obviously is extremely difficult.

I like it at 1920x1080 the old forums really stretched too damn far over the screen, seriously impairing readability.

Ronald Reagan: I do not like Sweden, they support communism. Minister: Sir, but Sweden are anti-communist, Sir.  Ronald Reagan: I do not care what kind of communists they are.

Forums are just another example that CCP doesn't give s*** about their customers and their opinions. One way or another, going straight to it, or taking longer way around, they will ultimately do whatever is on their mind.

Waiting for gold ships and ammo this time next year.

I personally like the new forums, I have no issues reading it over long periods, I like the font etc. A definite step up.

There's a thread about ponies.

I thought that was pretty cool.

OP whining about javascript being used is just being petty. Seriously on any modern computer with a decent connection the difference will never be noticed.
The problem isn't with javascript being used — it's with it being used to do things that are better done without javascript and (even worse) with it replacing things that are done just as well without JS without there being any kind of fallback.

For instance, the much vaunted and long expected search functionality is almost useless if you turn JS off, and there is no reason to have JS anywhere near that page.

And yes, you do want to turn JS off for a number of things — most notably the idiotic link scripts that (because of JS) alter or even break standard browser behaviour. That is such a silly blunder that it borders on the insane. It's a web programming 101 clueless newbie mistake — you simply don't do that if you have any sense whatsoever. The basic functionality of warning users for external links still exists and still works perfectly without the JS, so the addition of scripting is just idiotic.

This was complained about ad nauseam on the beta test forum. Good to see we were listened to...

looks fine on my 4 inch android screen. Do you guys not have tap or pinch to zoom on your phones? I guess it depends on your os, no idea.
