Are you saying that they're supersized ONLY in the "Bugs" section, and a different size everywhere else??

yes.

Well I haven't checked every single other forum, but yes.

Everything is bigger, even the screen I have open right now for posting etc.

I was writing to say they were formated differently here too - but it looks as though you just fixed it!


PS: Evan, I am now on a different machine and its is back to large. Some the formating from one stayed when I went to another - something to do with reloading them I guess. Anyway it is large now, the way I normally see it.

PPS: Yes thats it - I went out to another thread and came back to this one and got it to look "normal"

Nothing's changed on this end, so it seems like any fix would be on your end.

We're going to upgrade the software this weekend or next, so let's see how it looks once that's done.

True, but it's been this way ever since the last ubb upgrade. Some even mentioned it at the time.

One difference is that the other fora I use reference the gunks_sm.css stytle-sheet where as "Bugs & Comments" uses blind.css. The former has font sizes expressed in px whereas the latter tends to use %, (with "small" set at 115% no less).

This only based on a cursory perusal of the source code and the associated css, so I may be way off - but it's the obvious starting point.

I had always assumed that it was a "feature", not a bug. I assumed the authors wanted the bugs & comments forum to be unaffected by style preferences available in other forums. I thought of it as similiar to the "safe mode" in winblows. It makes sense to me as someone who wasted 5 years of my life on the systems development life cycle.

Uh-oh... sounds like somebody's been out picking mushrooms with Phlan.

I don't know if I should be jealous or relieved or what - I've never noticed a difference at work or at home.
