Stanford Tulpa Study looking for more participants

Kerning
#1
The T in "Tulpa" is too far from the U. Also the R in "Forums" is a little too close to the U, but that's less of a problem.

Please fix immediately.

EDIT: Also it wouldn't hurt if the F was just a tad bit closer to the O.

It looks like it was written in plain old Clibri, but it looks like Arial embraces the same kind of spacing-

EDIT: Oh, it's Arial, whoops. Same difference really.

*As a side note, it looks like TNR makes the "F" and "o" spacing worse!

I don't know if Pleeb and/or Vos would allow petitions for changing the font settings, but if you get enough irritated people to collaborate I don't see why not.

I don't have any opinions about this, and I'm not sure if changing the spacing would serve any benifits other than making more pleasing asthetics to some people. However, I'm not sure if applying kerning to the font would have the side affect of upsetting some people, not to mention the fact the admins would have to go through the process to fix it.

I sometimes speak in pink and Ranger sometimes speaks in blue (if it's unmarked and colored assume it's Ranger). He loves to chat.

My other Tulpas have their own account now.

Fwiw, arial is only used universally on the internet because it comes first alphabetically. Theoretically someone could improve the whole internet by just making a great font and calling it AAAAAAAA.
Yo, my name is Sean and I'm the host of 2 tulpas: Sente and Mae. You'll know when they're talking because Sente talks in yellow text and Mae talks in blue text.

I should make a totally incomprehensible font called AAAA so that I can ruin everything
I have a tulpa named Miela (formerly known as Monika) who I love very much.

Here are the comparisons:

Between those two, I like Georgia better, but neither don't really fix the "F-o" gap or the "r-u" closeness.

I also tried to search Google the problems with arial and such, but the only thing I got is people don't like Arial because it's overused and boering, but not that the spacing makes anyone angry (but they may have kerned Arial and fixed that problem, so my 10 minute research may have been in vain.)

Excuse the silly question but which theme/page is this appearing on?

Garamond and Georgia are both nice fonts. Such weird spacing that I'm going to notice everywhere now.
