We can do more colours! Is there a reason why you are requesting this font? Since it does not seem to be intended for english. We also might be at the limit of fonts for the forum, since they slow things down a tad - we can swap them out, but it might mean removing a less popular font first.
If you click the "news" icon on the left it will swap you into the readability theme. - I'm aware this is not super clear and there have been requests to improve this in the past that are not forgotten ^^ - I might work on a better solution soon!  :4u:

is there a way to make it so it's only the fonts that are forced into something like, well, doesnt matter to me, arial,times new roman etc, lol. I just really want to read more posts, but some fonts are too hard for me to read. I dont want to force others to not use fonts, they should be able to if they wish  :loved:  - but i just cannot read it at all.

I tried the readability theme, but it was just a bit too much for me xD I love the forum colors and overall style.  :chef:

Are there plans to make Melonland screen responsive, specifically support for mobile viewing? Or does the lack of a mobile responsive screen have something to do with keeping this place small and full of substance?

I greatly appreciate the average quality of posts on this forum but not its web design. Sometimes I like to read on my phone when I'm out and about and nothing particularly interesting is going on, but the experience is difficult.

Neither! The forums main theme is a table theme dating from the early 00s, I doubt it would be possible to make it properly responsive. Modernising would basically require starting over from scratch, so we are kinda grandfathered into what we’ve got.

On mobile, I personally use WAP and the RSS feed to keep up with posts - it’s not perfect but it gets me by  :wizard:

I suppose making do with imperfect things is part of the vibe too  :tongue:

Can this forum software support more granular RSS feeds? I don't expect this site to do what the Discourse forum software can do, but anything more granular than just one big feed for the whole site would be an improvement. I don't want to read literally every post on here. Individual RSS feeds per board and/or per topic would be great.
Done - per board RSS feed links can now be found around the forum!

would it be possible to use the post censor to strip tracking information from common links? i don't know whether it can make use of regex and if not this might be impossible.

the example that made me bring this up is youtube. a few months ago, they added tracking to links. i'm not quite sure where this is coming from (probably using some kind of "share" button as opposed to copying the url in your browser) but i see youtube links with tracking everywhere now, including on this forum.

the tracking information begins with si= and is an alphanumeric string.

youtube links can carry information after this string (such as the time), so it might be best to match from si= to &, and retain the & after stripping the tracking string.

can i request labels when hovering over the buttons for the theme switcher in the bottom left? previously it was only 1 or 2 options with icons that made it easy to tell what theme i was trying to switch to(newspaper icon for the news theme for example), but the "traffic light" buttons dont have any label or design to tell you what button activates which theme so i find myself clicking through a couple before finding the right button for the news theme
