Months after seeing someone complain about the font sizes you use in your mag and you doing nothing (what is with those captions in light orange 4pt font??)... I have decided that I for one will not be renewing. Your magazine is extremely unpleasant to read (and I don't mean the content). I'm sure the photo captions are interesting and look great when you magnify them by 600% at design time, but do you ever look at the printed product? Terrible job with design and what a shame because you do a nice job everywhere else. Goodbye!

Fair enough.

It's understandable you would cancel a magazine you cannot read, there is little point in getting it. Personally I struggle as well with some fonts and colours- but assume I am in a minority and don't expect a magazine to change for me- if it was a problem with the majority, the majority would say so or stop buying.

Other options would be to buy a set of cheap glasses from the stores that sell cheap glasses right up to powerful 3+ and 4+ types...or perhaps go for a digital sub.

Not knocking you- I empathise as I have reading glasses too and struggle with some of the sizes. It's just if most don't have a problem, I must accept its something that isn't going to change so need to find solutions myself.

PSJ binning off the mag is not a good sign!

Yes, he's now ancient with failing eyesight and possibly incontinent, but that's the target market. None of us is getting any younger.

Maybe the senility will make him forget to cancel?

I dunno, I just put my reading glasses on to read small text.

Well, if I had them I would. I've got varifocal contact lenses cos it's 2019.

Is this for real? Doesn't sound like a PSJ post and he was looking forward to issue 200 last month

He should get his eyes tested. As far as I know the font sizes haven't changed in years!

Hold on hold on !

Dont know what happened there !!!! That wasnt me ! I remember seeing the post by a 'one post user'.

Not me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll check it, its like the user account has switched or something. Glad i saw this now !!

You know that post wasnt me as i'm mr pro Retro gamer !!

I might have checked the ip address but no way did i click on 'change user' to me. Weird !!! Also just noticed i cant see the Mod hidden section so perhaps something weird has happened.

But nah i'm not cancelling or moaning about the font size i'm fine with it. If anything i was going to reply to say if the font increases other people will moan theres less words etc. Cant please everyone but i'm fine with the font. Still working out what must have happened, bizarre

Okay, I just had a look through the moderator logs and that all checks out! It did seem strange, and the IP address didn't resolve to your usual ISP, so I was worried that someone had gained access to your account. I've restored the original poster's name and will set everything else right now.

I've been getting RG since issue 35 or thereabouts and haven't ever had a problem with captions not being readable - time to get your eyes checked out for macular degeneration

Very twilight zone! But pleased you're staying on to share in the upcoming #200!!!!

I do struggle with some small printing, but as most don't I know that's something I have to find a solution for, and there are ways around old fart syndrome eyesight! :lol:
