Below is what it looks like on the actual post, which is normal font. This is also how it will render in the post preview.

Normal font

Below is what it looks like in the revisions list, which is pixelated font. This is also the case for timeline view, but it is identical so one image suffices.

Pixelated font

I thought the pixel font was kinda neat, but then it turns out to not be how it shows up. In these examples, it is inside of a block quote but the case is also the same if it is not in a blockquote

This happens both on meta and main:

  • Hah, I would never have noticed. I have pixelation all over the darn place :D – badp Dec 9 '10 at 18:52
  • Noticed this as well when looking at your edits. Curiously, who is it that actually makes the code fixes for these things? A particular gaming.SE mod, or a general SE developer? Sorry, relatively new to the SE model, so I'm not sure. – kazzamalla Dec 9 '10 at 18:52

    @kazza In this case it's Jin, the guy who made all the designs for the StackExchange sites except SO SU SF and English. – badp Dec 9 '10 at 18:54
  • @kazza It's the devs. None of the Gaming mods are on the team. However, they are in charge of highlighting important issues with the team if they find it necessary. – Grace Note Dec 9 '10 at 18:54
  • So Jin is a SE employee, and each subsite that uses SE is allocated developers/designers and given priority for issues based most likely on need and popularity of a given SE community? – kazzamalla Dec 9 '10 at 18:55
  • Sorta, @kazza. Jin is Stack Exchange's designer, so he basically works on all of them. SO/SU/SF were designed prior to him joining the team (he had past been an associate, though, if I'm not mistaken), while English he consulted someone for their suggestions. We don't get our own private designers, but Jin does try to work with the communities to fix everything. – Grace Note Dec 9 '10 at 18:57
  • I'm sure there is a detailed explanation of how the SE family of sites operates somewhere that I could reference as opposed to bothering you all here about it.....(goes off searching) – kazzamalla Dec 9 '10 at 18:58
  • Thanks @Grace that helps, I'm trying to become more active here on gaming so just trying to understand how it all works. – kazzamalla Dec 9 '10 at 18:59
  • Likewise, none of the sites have their own devs. The devs work on the network as a whole, although some participate in various sites all across the network, out of both their own interests and routine checkups. I can't definitively say they read all sites equally, but if people feel a particular subject might not be getting enough attention then it often either gets brought up on Meta Stack Overflow (if it's a general network issue) or otherwise highlighted on the corresponding meta site (if it is a problem unique to the specific site, like this one). – Grace Note Dec 9 '10 at 19:00
  • @kazza I'm very glad to hear that. If you have any questions, feel free to ask what you want. – Grace Note Dec 9 '10 at 19:01

    @Grace I'm looking into this. @Badp I didn't design the Ubuntu site either. @Kazza welcome to SE! – Jin Dec 10 '10 at 5:58
  • @Jin Any update? – Matthew Read May 11 '11 at 17:31
  • I just noticed this and was about to report it. Seems like it's been that way for a while :/ – Invader Skoodge Oct 24 '11 at 18:49
