DN is rendering in the browser default fonts again

over 5 years ago from

This issue happened a few weeks ago and staff needed to kick a tire somewhere. Looks like it might need to be kicked again.

(And the site is forcing me to add a badge to this post. Can't we have the option of no badge at all?)

    I know this wasn't a popular opinion - but I prefer this default font setting.

    Why does this have to be a topic of discussion...again!? Just report it to DN.

      Why not just ignore this post if it's a concern to you?

        Why not just report it to DN instead of trying to gain more karma?

          Sorry, not interested in the imaginary karma. Never have been.

            So why not just report it to DN?

              Why do I have to explain to you how I am posting and what authority do you have here? Who are you to determine what people post? The last time I mentioned this problem here, staff responded kindly in the thread. So that's what I did this time.

              If you think my post is inappropriate, you have the same options we all do. You can ignore it or report it as inappropriate and staff will make the final call.

                I was just asking you a simple question.

                  No, you were accusing me of posting here to accumulate karma points. I didn't report it to staff because I posted it here, where staff responded last time.

                    Could have just said that in the first place instead of replying with a snarky comment about why it was any concern to me.

                      And you could have asked nicer than "a topic of discussion...again!?" and then dictating that it be reported to staff.

    To me, it looks an error... Whitney was always declared into the css file, maybe they forgot to renew the font license. btw now is back = license renewed?

    I love good default fonts. They look so better in Retina.

    I mean, it's a 404 on a CSS file, so technically your choice of badge isn't wrong...

      Yeah, since I was being forced to pick one, I went with what I thought was appropriate.

        Quite right Ken, but as it's opened up quite a bit of discussion (especially between you and Beth R.) I thought I'd change the icon to just that ;)
