I’m in the planning stages for a redesign of this site, which I don’t plan to get done till 2007, but that doesn’t mean the current site can’t handle a couple of tweaks. While reading the excellent article, Web Design is 95% Typography II, I noticed that Oliver included a link to Wisdump which affectionately states what more than a handful of people have said about the site.
Scrivs, you are without no doubt the dude 2.0 – and your company does amazing stuff, but what were you thinking when you downscaled the font size on wisdump? I know that I can scale it up with a simple key combination, but I don’t want to. I used to read wisdump (ex whitespace) weekly. I don’t read it anymore because I am too lazy to adjust the font size.
That’s all I needed to hear so what did I do? I looked at his stylesheet and stole his font code so now we are back to being able to read the site without feeling that every paragraph is a footnote. There are a lot more little fixes to do with this current version, but for now I hope this brings one or two people back.
You people should have scolded me more. Please forgive me.
