I thought it was some sort of joke I'd missed out on because I'd pursuing glory in other SE's, but no... It's just community bulletin... So, is anyone going to do anything about the fact that the font is almost illegible?

As a programmer, I hate calling this a bug, but seriously Programmers Cohhunity you need to do something about this:

Perhaps someone has asked a Sihilar question?

EDIT: It's been over two months. Could somebody please choose a legible font?

I suggest an official rename of the bulletin to coHHunity. But then, your request will still remain valid - simply because we'd need font change to differentiate it from boring coMMunity. Oh and I see we are prograHHers not prograMMers –  gnat Apr 30 '12 at 20:18
    
Programmers.SE mods can't do much about it. Only developers can. Best post this on Meta Stack Overflow –  Dynamic Apr 30 '12 at 20:18

@Jae - nope. This is the right place. Tagged with design should ensure that Jin sees it –  ChrisF Apr 30 '12 at 20:47
    
@ChrisF Thanks! Good to know! –  Dynamic Apr 30 '12 at 23:09

...so why haven't you complained that the site is called "PROGRAHHERS"? –  Ben Brocka Jul 10 '12 at 1:18

@BenBrocka Prograhhers? I thought this site was called Droqrahhers! Now all the requests to change the name make sense! –  user8 Jul 10 '12 at 6:18
    
Had never noticed, and never bugged me. Now I'm more confused about the change of direction in each letter, but I guess if that's just Laurie's hand-writing, I'll live with it. –  haylem Jul 11 '12 at 1:05

I've always read this as "COHHUNKY BULLETIN". It's a bad font. –  LarsTech Aug 21 '12 at 15:04
    
"Illegible" is illegible for me. –  hexafraction Nov 1 '12 at 12:17
    
Just because you programmers can't read your own handwriting... –  voretaq7 Nov 12 '12 at 18:48
    
Yup @ChrisF this heta is definitely the right place for this suggestion. *8') –  Mark Booth Jul 12 '13 at 10:54

Blame it on the font used for titles:

The handwritten font in the title, top nav and section header is House Whiteboard. Yes, it is actually Hugh Laurie's handwriting. ("It's Not Lupus!")

Oh. Well then, blame it on Hugh Laurie. The limey bastard!

Very well, blame assigned. I also blame him for none of the major browsers supporting the font-stretch css3 style which would have probably fixed it. –  Peter Turner May 1 '12 at 3:24

@PeterTurner I blame America's bad taste, if you waited for House M.D. to discover Hugh Laurie, you deserve his crappy handwriting ;P –  Yannis Rizos May 1 '12 at 14:47
