Launch of Boys-Luv.com, Kuriousity Questions


Today I’m officially cutting the proverbial ribbon on Boys-Luv.com – a sister-site of sorts for Kuriousity that focuses on just what the name would imply – boys’ love and yaoi! If you want to learn more or share some ideas of what you’d like to see on Boys-Luv.com, by all means please head over to the official launch post and let me know what you think.

On the Kuriousity side of things, I have a few questions for my readers. While working on Boys-Luv.com, which has a different layout and font structure than Kuriousity, I came to find that I really like the larger more spaced-out font – but before making any big changes on Kuriousity, I’d like to know what you think as far as readability goes (plus I know myself well enough that I’m often biased to whatever’s new and different).

Is the font size and style easy to read here? Would you prefer something a different size, style, colour…?

Also if there’s any other content you’re interested in seeing here on Kuriousity please let me know as well. With the new year coming up, it’s the perfect time to make some fresh changes around here and I’m open to people’s thoughts and suggestions. I’ve gotten positive feedback regarding the recent upgraded release schedules and I’m always happy to hear visitors come here because they find the content useful.

In the meantime I hope boys’ love fans will take a gander over at Boys-Luv.com and enjoy the new format (and gorgeous header image).

    I prefer the text style on this website. I think the Boys-Luv version is too spaced out. It's probably 'cause I was trained to read a certain way in college, but it's always easier (and faster) for me to work through text that's normal (or narrower) and takes up less lines. I feel a little uncomfortable with wider text.

      Thanks for your input. General consensus from acquaintances both offline and online seems in favour of keeping the font style as is so no fixing what isn't broken!
