I agree. However I don't particularly like the previous text either, so could you try some other text options that are more legible?


Completely disagree - the new text is much more legible?!

Weird... bit like Marmite... some like - some hate!!

As I said I don't like the text used in both versions. Maybe a new font would be better. Why not make a selection of 4 or 5 fonts and put up a poll so that people can vote for the best one?

Just look at the text in LaSalle (West End) as a clear example. Maybe it has something to do with eyesight, but I find that label really difficult to read, whereas it couldn't be clearer with the older text.

I will do a couple different things with the text and post them tomorrow. Aside from the text, are there any other issues? If not then once the text is agreed upon we should be set.

Thanks for the input everyone.

My fav is #2. Easy to read both large and small

I don't think it is really an issue. If others do, I will thicken them. I really just wanted to get the text thing settled. Once that is done I will get on this if others feel it is of value.

#1 for me. The black text seems to clash with the soft feel of the map. Just my opinion.

i like number 2, i think it's easier to read but on the smaller map, it seems too small.

it might be cramping things, but could the font be bumped up a point or 2?

I agree with qwert on this one.

Also why didn't you put up a poll? It's much better to keep track and easier for people to express their opinions...

If he'd put up a poll he would have likely said something like "1, 2, 3 or 4" and then we'd still get all this mixing numbers comments and the style change one that qwert gave and I also agree with. In addition to what I said previously, either option really.

Polls in the foundry usually turn to rubbish anyway. Too many people vote without looking at anything.

Yes but many people now will not be bothered to vote because they are too lazy to write a reply post, while it's okay for them to click since it's less time consuming. Thus he will get less feedback. Besides, from what did you deduct that people vote in polls without looking at anything?

Also it's impossible to keep track of the votes this way. Polls are there to be used in my humble opinion...

Fine I will add a poll Ruben :D

Some people like two different versions one large one small. I don't want to have two different fonts for the large and the small map.

So vote for the best of both and if you already added another vote for #5

I said 3 because it's the only one that I feel is easily readable on both large and small.

I still say 2 on large and 3 on small is optimal and to be frank, I don't see why it's a big deal to have different fonts. But, honestly, it's your revamp and I think you should be able to do it how you want to do it.

I just think it looks weird having two very different fonts. I think qwert's idea of getting rid of the italic style of #2 is probably a good idea.

And edbeard. If I felt that because it was my revamp I could do anything i want, then I would not even have changed the font in the first place. I want the community to help decide what the map will look like. There have been many things on my revamps and my own maps that I did not think were important. But the community did and the community is in charge (within reason :D)
