Bigger fonts please
« on: April 19, 2010, 04:40:42 AM »
I tried to make an unimpressed face today

:/

And wanted to make it huge, but size 200 is the limit, could you up that? I have not seen the size function being abused in the forum, so I doubt letting it get a bit bigger would lead to problems. I can imagine you may fear posts all in size 1000 text, which I agree would be bad, but sometimes, I think a little more impact would be good, if it became a problem, it should be easy to snip the size allowance back down?

Thank you (possibly)

Whitney, I suggest moving this to the philosophy section.

I think what he was trying to say is that there is no practical use for fonts bigger then 200.  There probably isn't any use for it either.  If you want it to look bigger you can always hold down the ctrl key and use the wheel on your mouse to adjust the size ^_^.  Honestly I don't see any practical use for font size 200.  Maybe instead of making bigger fonts (which could be badly abused if say some fundie hops in and makes a 3 page post of bs 15 pages long because of font size 400) we should make bigger smilies where there is less of a chance of someone abusing it rather then something that could be horrendously abused.

My brain hurts just thinking about another cowbell-hugging caps-loving fundie posting a sermon in size googol font. I'm sorry for not taking your side with this SSY, although I agree with you about banning AIP.

If your faith in god is due to your need to explain the origin of the universe, and you do not apply this same logic to the origin of god, then you are an idiot.
