Findings-
Copying and pasting small type into the bar is far more difficult then highlighting white type- which achieves the same purpose

White type is far better then small type... small type is a pain in the ass. It also rarely hides funny remarks... two examples above show that :-PP

Except when it's white type at the end of a sentence, when unless the sentence is obviously cut off, it's really not that effective, since people may not even notice it's there, unlike small time, which is evident due to there actually being something. White type may be easier to read, but small type is easier to notice. See my point about the end of sentences?

Gray is immediately readable, however. Maybe define small type as anything less than 5pt?

Section 2:
Small type shall be defined as type smaller than 5 pt.

Quote from: Amendment 49:14 by Ben
Section 2:
Small type shall be defined as type smaller than 5 pt.

I have concerns that the underlying amendment and the amendments to it are functionally impractical.

I deem Ben's amendment friendly... that sounds good to me

NC Yankee- the "nipple rings" section is in jest...how about if I amend to a resolution kindly asking folks not to use below 5 point type?

The nipple rings was the most obvious problem for sure, since that is functionally impossible.


The impractical concern was the structure as a Constitutional Amendment.

Resolution is probably the best way to approach this.


Senators have 24 hours to object to Ben's amendment.

I agree with Ben's amendment and propose the following...

Resolution to Discourage Small Type Use

Findings-
Copying and pasting small type into the bar is far more difficult then highlighting white type- which achieves the same purpose

Resolution-
The AARP- Atlasian Association of ReallyOld Persons- humbly requests that users take into account our aged and tired eyes by not using small type

I don't see why it should take an act of the Senate to release a statement made from what I assume to be a private organization, but I suppose so. Tongue
