Please do NOT use any text smaller than the "Tiny" setting available when making a post. Not only is it a pain to have to copy and paste that text somewhere every time you come across it in a post just to read it, but Google does not like putting content in pages that is not humanly readable.

I understand sometimes people would put little tidbits of jokes or off-topicness into tiny text that was relevant to the topic. This is fine as long as it abides by the rules and you aren't trying to sneak something, just please don't use anything smaller than "Tiny".

Thank you!

It's depressing to even have to post this thread to start with. The options have not changed for years but just now it has become an issue because people want to act immature about it since they found something new to play with.

Does this include signatures?
I'm guessing yes, as the below is not exactly legible...

EDIT: Never mind, I got rid of it...It was pretty stupid anyways.

There's a font size called "tiny?"

Huh. I always just hand-coded my text size and such. I never noticed the drop downs.

Actually, on that note, I'd like to see more size 9 (Small) signatures.
I deliberately do my signature in small text so it takes less space and is more naturally ignored.

In fact, were it my choice, I'd set size 9 as the default for signatures.
Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?

Unfortunately if it were your choice the world would be a yellowish purple, timber wolves would run free, and you would have your laptop back if you already dont. But i think that tacticool jokes and the ever so present double entendre should be allowed the glorious tiny text so coveted by all.
Yeah, it's that important.

Not sure where you got that idea from.

No, but I'd have one as a pet...

Yes, I would. How the bloody hell does it take two weeks to call back and (as I write) over three weeks to swap out a broken part?

You can also custom code the text to size zero. that one is funny to fill in the lines between paragraphs with it or white text. Will be adding stuff between the[size=0]this is a joke if you figure this out[/size] lines literally from now on. Same as above with the size 0 text (it's between "the" and "lines") its a joke won't be breaking the rules. But I really like the white text function as you can see its pretty fun for the people in the know to use for jokes and random stuff.
Does white text count? Just have to highlight it to read.

Do you want to have to highlight every members post to read it? Think about it.
Look if you must.
