POLL: MVS fonts - serif vs. sans-serif

Post by matthew1 » Tue May 22, 2018 12:46 pm

Which one do you like most?

This is for the Home page and the couple thousand VRD pages. Not the forum.

Also, this is for the body font, not the headline font.

Currently, it's sans-serif. You can see it by simply going to the MVS home page.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

We need more serif tolerance. Besides, if you make 3D printed sans-serif so many fall over. Those little serifs give stability.

Serifs for the body of text. Sans for headings. It's a good general rule :-)

Gargamel's been unsuccessfully trying to stamp out the Serifs for 40+ years already. There's something like 102 of them now.

Serif
Sans Serif
Serif Lite
Bold Serif
Reporter Serif
Baby Serif
Brainy Serif...

Serifette must exist on a diet pretty solely of pickles and ice cream
