I remember answering the feedback survey some time ago.
Only now I realise: the Forums layout and/or typography makes you want to read and engage less. Specially compared to Reddit's. (I'm using a Google Chrome browser on a Windows on both experiences).
I open the forums on a daily basis and when I browse it I immediately lose interest in digging more content.
I can't tell exactly what it is. It feels like you are not compelled to read stuff here in the official forums. Maybe the text size is too small. I also believe the margins on the page are way too wide. And there's too much focus on the user, rather than the text itself (the profile picture, the "stars", the name, the signature are too big compared to what they actually have to say).
When I get into Reddit, specially ESO's Reddit page, I feel wanting to reading more and engaging more. I believe this is due to the platform making the comments the main focus, rather than other elements, like margins, profile pictures, signatures.
Do you also feel the same, even if not comparing to Reddit?
