gothicbeauty21, I removed you from my friends list. I'm sorry if this causes any hurt feelings.

I'm not the kind of person who dictates to others what to write in their journal, so I'd rather just remove you from my list rather than tell you what you should put in yours. I thought you at least deserved an explanation.

I was hoping that you'd change your font format back to normal. The 24-ish point font in bright red seemed like you were desperately screaming for attention. I asked if it was purposeful and got no explanation other than that it was intentional. Even one paragraph posts wound up being the length of an entire page even though I'm running at 1600 by 1200 resolution. Only the countless quizzes were at normal font size and I skip over those anyway.

I'm sorry if this hurts your feelings. That's not my intention. I'd like to add you back since we know mutual people, so I'll check your journal from time to time.

I thought it was just showing up oddly on my screen...

I hate to say it, but it makes me just scroll past her posts now. :(

Then why did you never say anything? lost_angel is the only person that ever said anything.

Like I just said, I really thought it was some wonkyness on my end.

I'm sorry I never elaborated on your question. A friend is making me an Evanescence layout, and that is the Evanescence font. I'm trying to decide if I want it as the default font for my journal, or if I want to go with a generic gothic font.

You're the only person who ever complained, no one else ever said it bothered them. I'm sorry it cluttered up your page, but it's never cluttered up mine, and I have a high resolution as well.

But, you don't have to bitch any more. I've got enough entries posted in the font that I can just look at my latest entries and decide if that's something I want to go with or not.

A suggestion...

For the record, unless you're using a Dynamic Font set, only people who have the Evanescence font installed on their computer will be able to tell it's anything other than red and huge. It'll just display as the user's default font (in a large size)

If you still want to use that font, you might want to talk to the person designing your journal to make graphics font for your journal navigation using the font, and use a more mundane, widely-used font for your entries.

Re: A suggestion...

I recently came to that realization, but I thank you for stating it. It's one of the reasons I'm seriously contemplating a more common gothy font for my journal.

Or, I could just send the Evanescence font to everyone on my friends list. :p

Re: A suggestion...

*hee hee*

If I knew what the evanescence font looked like, I'd give you some suggestions for a widely-used font that'd look good with it.

Look at their logo, that's the font I'm talking about

Re: A suggestion...

That's very pretty... you're right.

If your friend making your journal layout is 1337 enough to make your journal entries' navigation, mood, now playing, and comment buttons with the Evanescence font, I bet it'd look really nice with something elegant like Garamond... I'm a sucker for a good-looking font that's legible in all sizes :)

I second Garamond. Awesome font of the basics.

*fontphiliac*

I didn't realize it was supposed to show up differently, either.

Ah-ha, now I see what you were going for. I didn't realize that it was a particular font issue.

Like I said, I'll continue to check your journal occassionally to see how you're doing and if you find a more normal font that you like, I'll gladly add you back.

Good luck :)

I was purposfully doing it in that font, so it would show up on my journal. I'm not going to DO that anymore, so it's not going to bother your friends page anymore. When I get my new layout done, it will show up in whatever font I choose on MY journal and MY friends pages, but it won't post in that font anymore. It'll look normal on everyone elses page, you'd have to actually go to my page to see the font.

Will do. Can't wait to see what it looks like.

Adding you back now.
