Hi - noticed that from the main forum page (www.gmatclub.com/forum), the names of the subforums seem larger in font than the names of the main forums. Are we trying out new formatting or is this a funky bug?

Cheers,
isa.

Trying out new formatting - trying to emphasize the subforums for new members. Does this look bad?
I am attaching a screenshot on my PC - let me know if yours looks different.

Looking at it - the font looks different for some reason on the Forums and Subforums.

I will ask to get them to match - I missed it when looking at it - 1680 15" screen is not helping either.

I think getting the same font will definitely help.

If the size aspect still looks odd, would having a different color help? Or would that be more confusing?

Maybe, but changing link colors is a bit challenging across the browser base - they never look right.
I am hoping that the image in front of the subforum will emphasize it a bit too...

I just got tired after the Verbal forum got restructured - I could hardly hit the appropriate subforum link on the screen.

I like the smaller size with the icon - I think that should help the subforums stand out...

In case, changing the font face is also under consideration, then you can try out the following:

Verdana (with font size: 10 or may be 9), which looks quite good and clear.

Thanks!
Everything is on the table. Right now the subforums look very much like Verdana, but I'd like to get the font to match that of the Forums. Does this make sense?

Yes, syncing them will make sense.

I also think that image in front of the subforum should help.
