At the moment, in my opinion, the portal uses not optimal font sizes. A lot of small text; practically indistinguishable sizes; sizes that do not match the style guide. To continue this task (T160704#6198949), I suggest some changes.

I have changed:

  • 16px for description and mobile block
  • 16px for project name in project block
  • Button 16px

Should we change:

  • Wiki names of top10 are something like headers. They should be larger than the main text in my opinion.
  • Header of the mobile block. Something like Heading 3 (20px). Relative: T254653

Thanks @Iniquity for the proposal. It would be helpful to have this comparison also for a mobile canvas (375px).

For mobile - 375px:

hello @Iniquity i just see your proposal. In this proposal you mentioned font sizes are not according to the style guide.
Can you tell me the present scenerio if still these changes are required. I would love to work on this.
