Semi-protected edit request on 26 March 2014[edit]

Not done: it's not clear what changes you want made. Please mention the specific changes in a "change X to Y" format. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 19:51, 26 March 2014 (UTC)

Utter destruction of readability[edit]

Wikipedia's new font choices are a disaster. First off, headings in a serif font. Serifs help letters join together ON PAPER. Then what is that weird font they are using for article content? It is almost unreadable. This revision is a COMPLETE mess. Huw Powell (talk) 07:04, 4 April 2014 (UTC)

And the sans-serif font for the content seems to have been either chosen or designed by a lemur. It is f'ing awful. Huw Powell (talk) 07:06, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
The new fonts - the awful serifs for headers and whatever that godawful sans-serif they are now using for content - are both unreadable.
I'll be gone from this site - reading and editing - until these awful user-experience errors are fixed. Bye bye. Someone ruined this web site. Huw Powell (talk) 07:15, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
I've posted instructions for a fix on your talk page. --AussieLegend () 08:30, 4 April 2014 (UTC)
AussieLegend, I appreciate fixing for individual users, but where is the best place to complain about the vomitous new fonts that WMF is foisting upon the world at large? --Hobbes Goodyear (talk) 18:52, 5 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm afraid the two of you are in a vast minority. I'll wager that because of the differences in format (size, bold) most people don't notice a font difference between the title and body of an article, and a majority probably haven't noticed any recent font change. I rather like the fonts. I don't like the italics, but I don't like how italics look in most every font. I recommend the individual solution. --Yoda of Borg () 04:09, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

Hello fellow grad student. Wikipedia isn't really the place for those questions. Try the Math or Statistics pages of StackExchange. Good luck. --Yoda of Borg () 02:07, 25 April 2014 (UTC)

Syberia done[edit]

On the project page, I saw Syberia listed under "Fix spelling and grammar". I went through it and did that, then removed the flag template per How to do basic copyediting.

But the article is still listed on this project page. Is the list going to be updated by a bot? There should be at least a note to that effect, either on the page or in "How to do basic copyediting". --Thnidu (talk) 14:32, 2 July 2014 (UTC)
