If the new font doesn't work, fine, look for another. But please find a font that doesn't look like it's from the cover of a colouring book.

natty dread wrote:The objective truth is that the old font is horrible and doesn't fit this or any other map. It's tacky, tasteless, cheesy, and inappropriate for the theme of the map. Africa is not a funny and whimsical la-la-land. Implying that it is simply condescending and racist. This very map was made as a prize of sorts for a charity drive to help the impoverished people of Africa, and a "funny and humorous" font is EXTREMELY inappropriate in that context.

Gillipig, I don't know if you have a problem with reading, or with comprehending what you read, but can you please stop posting useless drivel about things you don't know anything about? Thanks.
