Either people got lazy or they realized everybody was just blocking their big dumb flobs.

No post style is best post style. I was doing it before it was cool.

but meh, I just color code cos I suck at tracking down myself/separating RP characters because I suck at differentiating on a computer

I hate them. All of them. I always have. Colored text that's actually readable is fine, but pictures and song lyrics belong in your sig >.>

if i ran gaia everyone with a post style would be banned
you have a space for a signature use it

Well that would escalate quickly. xd

What is wrong with post styles?
1. they are annoying
2. it is a pain in the a** when doing long convos
3. it is even more of a pain in the a** when dealing with reports as a mod
4. they are annoying

I only use post styles when RPing. I used to have a regular forum post style, but I ditched it.

FLOBS!

Yes! OMG I was going to mention those but I forgot what they were called. LOL

There were a couple of them that I did block. <<;;

But there are simple post styles where all the user does is change the font color (like for example dark blue)...do those annoy you, too?

Just something simple, that's all I need and all I expect from others
You can add color, alignment, bold, and/or italics
don't go crazy light on the color and you're fine
if you do add a picture make it really small

Honestly if I didn't have the tektek toolbar to automatically put mine in I wouldn't even use them
I'm lazy so sue me

I can say I don't miss avatar art flobs, I don't miss them at all
It was such an eyesore seeing large quote towers
and people refusing to delete their art flobs from them
so the quote tower just becomes gigantic emotion_donotwant

I have the tektek toolbar, so I select one of three (legibly dark) font colors to match the day's outfit. That's usually it. I do have one fancy post style that has an image above and below and is centered, but I find I post less (yes, even less than I am right now!) when I have it set as default.

I am an older Gaian than you might expect, and these old eyes can't read font sizes smaller than 12 without pain, so unfortunately if you are choosing a "small, cute" font I won't read your posts; they hurt my eyes. Yes, this is sometimes a pain when moderating. sweatdrop

I also skip over posts with light or neon colors, posts with sparkly or bouncy stuff in them, posts with flobs, and posts wherein I can't find the actual posted content. If you mean me to read it, I'm counting on you to make it easy to find and easy to read.

Honestly I never knew about that stupid crap but I remember those posts. Super annoying but if I ever did the post like that it would be bigger font size and bold. Why? I have horrible eye sight and small font sizes I can't see. My browser actually is magnified on my laptop so I can see gaia online with minimal eye strain honestly. Basic text also is one thing I can see better these people who use bright colors on white I don't bother reading. I can't see it anyways.

When I am not lazy , it ' s size nine x brown . That ' s all . I prefer simplicity in my post style : I want people to focus on what I am writing and not on any possible post-style I could have .Just this one because it looks 'cleaner' to me somehow, compared to the default base . And I like this color : it ' s less aggressive than red , but still stand out a bit ( I don 't think it looks brown at all ) .

It is also one of the reasons why I have never been able to join a proper RP , even if I want to : all those elaborate post-styles make me sick and my eyes spin in their orbits .

I find ornate post styles with big image codes and stuff to be a bit gaudy and somewhat annoying, especially in long quote trees, so I'm glad to see them on the decline. Decorative flair is better saved for profiles or sigs imo. Also, unless you have that gaia add-on or whatever ain't nobody got time for that. : I
