Two things:

1) People who use anything other than the default font type and color on the fora should not. Whatever you choose, I assure you that it will look like crap on one of the skins for EoFF.

2) Do you use a specific font type, color, size, and background color for the instant messenger(s) that you use? Size 10 Verdana, white on black has always worked for me.

Talk about one, the other, or both. It is a "Choose Your Own Response Adventure". :|

I use Verdana (black) on MSN... on AIM I use a black Arial font on an orange highlight.

I'm scared to use any other font because I got banned from another site once for using "too big" font. So... I'm not changing the font now. But I like bold verdana. :(

I use the default font on EoFF, as you can see, but I use Courier New in DarkViolet/Purple whenever possible.

I used a font color back in the day when it was sort of kind of cool.

On IMs, I just use whatever's default.

Arial, bold. Green or blue, depending on the computer I'm using.

1) I agree. :monster: It's just too much of a hassle for me to go around doing that to every one of my posts. Even though it takes all of about two seconds. But I like to be able to post and go. Post and go.

2) I don't even know. It's black. Oh, MS Sans Serif. I'll be fine as long as it's black. I don't mind other people using coloured fonts in MSN, but I can't stand using it myself for some reason.

Size 8 Verdana for everything that I can, including Word and mIRC, though my brother always bitches that it's too small when we're talking on AIM, so I stick it on maximum size for him XD

I use purple on trillian, which roogle has viciously stolen from me for whatever reason! It's arial narrow, I think.

I used to use a font I had made on msn, and the one guy who had it installed (poor guy) tried to remedy that because it disgusted him xD And aim was orange on black bradley hand itc. mIRC is still bradley hand, but a nicer lime green on black.

On AIM, I use Arial in a Dark Blue at size 8. On MSN, I just use the default because I really don't care. xD

:D :heart: How totally kawaii!

Uhm, yeah, I'm too lazy to format each and every one of my posts, so blah to that. I tried, once, to type like this. It got on my nerves.

I can't remember what I use, but teeny-tiny Verdana is very pretty.

I use default for almost everything.

Tavrobel

Default on Eoff, although I may consider using the color that is in my signature in the future.

On AIM, I use this size 14 random green in Verdana.

Although I don't change my font externally, I do use Trebuchet MS throughout various parts of the OS since it looks better under Linux than say, Arial or Times New Roman.

Bold, black, 10 pt Verdana or Trebuchet MS!

Verdana > all. Smaller the better, it gets hard to read, but it's so darn cute.....

1) Seconded.

2) Size 10 Verdana, default colors. Sometimes Courier New.

On forums I just use the standard, but when I am on aim, I have it set to a small (not sure of the exact size) red comic sans font.

I will never forget the 'what font are you' quiz, which seemed to harbor some hatred towards verdana.
it said something along the lines of "trendy little clusterfuck" and I've been hesitant to use verdana consciously ever since!

On here its default. But on MSN its usually either Trebuchet MS or Verdana. Right now its 10 point Verdana, in black. Which is awesome :D

Don't sell yourself short. As I recall, you used the single ugliest font color here.

Reles

The default on AIM has always been Times New Roman right?

Because I have no plans on changing it, I guess I'm a boring individual, it's been like this for 6 years.

Del Murder

I don't even think I know how to change my font on aim.

On the forums I would never be able to remember to put font tags in every post. That would be annoying anyway.

Oh, my!!. :eep:

I use whichever default, just like what kikimm has said, too much hassle to go around changing fonts.

There was a time when I made all my posts bold. I also like writing with really small Verdana. I'm too lazy to do it for every post, though - so I don't bother.

My instant messenger is set to ignore any custom fonts and colours sent by the other side :monster:

Back in 2001, I used to use pink font ^-^ But now I'm just too lazy to type in font color = blah blah, it was a customized #23948234ERWER pink too. You don't need to be a different color or size to stand out ;)

I usually use Arial size 8 with blue/green/peach/pink font on IMs :3

Saying I used the single ugliest color would also be selling the whole situation short, as I went between two hideous font colors back in the day.

Size eleven bold Century Gothic, in a dark shade of purple.

1) Oh, yes. I agree so much with this. Changing font sizes, types and particularly colours only serves to make your posts annoying.

2) I use two messenger systems regularly - Y!M and AIM. For Y!M I have a multi-coloured font which ranges between dark red, dark blue and dark green. It's still easy to read on a white Y!M background but it's colourific at the same time. I've done this for almost six years now. I use Arial, bold and size 10 for this. In AIM, it's much more simple - size 8 or size 10 (I can't remember off the top of my head) black Verdana on the default white background.

Verdana, font size 8, dark gray or black.

or

Trebuchet MS, font size 8, dark gray or black.

Forums, default. Always.

MSN, I use Arial, with a dark blue font. A friend made fun of me for having the default still, so I changed it slighty, and its been that way since xD. I also set text to the smallest possible size, as I like things small when it comes to fonts and resolutions and so forth

I demand that EoFF make Exocet the default font, so we can all look like a bunch of Diablo nerds xD

1) on here I use default normally.

2) AIM and MSN- Lucida Calligraphy. 12 and lilac on AIM, 10 and Navy Blue on MSN. Skype-default.
