As was brought up in Forum:New Theme we've been using the default font on the wiki for some time and maybe it's time for a refresh. Any changes this forum brings will affect the font used in the content-area. Technically this is Helvetica, but I think most of us will see Arial as the former isn't a default font for most computers.

I'd recommend proposing a web-safe font (one that almost every user has) or a free font that we can upload to the wiki.

To add a proposal for the font, add the following to Special:MyPage/common.css, wait for the css to update and then screenshot the result:

body {
    font-family: YOUR-FONT-HERE

replacing YOUR-FONT-HERE with the name of your font. cqm 23:03, 2 Aug 2014 (UTC) (UTC)

Comment - Added Trebuchet MS, Helvetica. It gives up a nice little feeling, and is browser-friendly. — Jr Mime (talk) 23:19, August 2, 2014 (UTC)

Comment - Why do we need a new font? HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 02:47, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

^ Same question Haidro has. But if one must choose, not the Times New Roman/Arial combo... Eww. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 04:03, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

Oppose - As put in your statement, if you don't like the default font, you can very easily change it for yourself in your personal css. The font we've been using is very readable and very friendly. There is no benefit to change to something else, so why hurt our readers eyes with such a drastic change? MolMan 04:07, August 3, 2014 (UTC)

Just to clarify, I have no problems with the current font. I simply took what the previous forum already had and added some filler for a opening statement. Having said that, some wikis have customised their font with decent success, such as [[w:c:deadspace]]. It's not as good as it was before fluid width was released, but it's very much in keeping with the wiki's theme and design. cqm 23:58, 4 Aug 2014 (UTC) (UTC)

Closed - There is no consensus to change the Wiki's default font at this time. HaidroH rune.pngEagle feather 3.pngCandle (blood red).png 1XqyDNM.png Crystal triskelion fragment 3.pngHazelmere's signet ring.png 08:57, August 11, 2014 (UTC)
