Hi, on my phone I see some changes, but the text of posts didn't change noticeably to me. Maybe it's bigger, but it's still small for me on both an iPhone 6s and a Pixel XL (both using Chrome with the largest font option).
I bumped it up another bit. How does it look now?

But it's good now?
A little bigger would be better for me.

I notice that on Chrome on Android, increasing the browser text scaling setting works on many elements, but not on the post text. I normally have it at 115% on my Pixel XL. (Chrome on iOS doesn't have that setting as Safari does the rendering.)
That might explain why it seems smaller now, assuming that setting was effective on XF1. I wonder if the CSS has that element set to an absolute size or something like that.

Just switched from dark to very dark and.. tangible relief. Apparently the dark/orange had been causing a small level of sensory overload that's greatly reduced with the new very dark theme.

Many thanks!

Couldn't take the bright default/light and very dark looked b&w. Dark w/orange is nice -- doesn't hurt my eyes.

Like the big buttons. But Very fine line between getting a "like" and getting the drop down/up and getting the browser pop up

Would prefer a tap for like options and a hold for browser

edit: on the computer now and it works fine, mouse-over and select Just the phone and my big fingers don't get along.

I just switched themes after the upgrade and like the orange and grey color scheme. It's verging on "peach" and is pretty easy on the eyes, while still providing enough contrast to read. I like it and the site upgrade overall, though still familiarizing myself with the changes. 👍

(also, woot! real emojis! 🤗)
