Make the default website font Comic Sans

Hello,

Please make the default website font Comic Sans. It is a casual, non-connecting script inspired by comic book lettering, intended for use in children's materials. Using Comic Sans will attract a new population of Scratchers who are young, but will grow up to become worthwhile members of the Scratch Community.

The use of Arial as the default website font really makes Scratch more… distant, rather than something I can actually play around with in person. That's where Comic Sans comes in to save the day.

Switching the default font to Comic Sans will give people the impression that Scratch is a fun, nonstressful place to share your doodles and thoughts. This could solve a majority of issues, meaning we could finally have the Utopia Scratch is supported to be.

Want to see it?

- Right click, select inspect element.
- Click on console
- Copy and paste
$('*').css('font-family','comic sans ms');
And hit enter.

Seriously, how cool does it look?

I think this is the best suggestion and hope it is implemented!

This site is for all ages, if Scratch website uses Comic Sans, it's suitable for kids but annoying for teens/adults.
…and the site will be looking childish…

Segoe UI is more cool. No support.

Support for this idea. I like the look of Ariel. It's clean and professional without being uninviting, but I could also see plenty of people who'd want comic sans.

The title bar does look kind of nice with it, but text, like forum posts, what I'm working on, project descriptions, etc. look weird with it.
Semi-Support for changing the title bar font, if optional

Semi-Support, the text would look cool for kids, but I kinda find it annoying if the fonts are all Comic Sans.

I left the forums. Sorry.

No support. Not to be insulting, but in my opinion, Comic Sans just looks incredibly unprofessional and childlike as a font. Scratch will be about as attractive as a lemonade stand.

Comic Sans, as per others, look unprofessional and very childish. Keep in mind that Scratch is for all ages. Although I would not be bugged very much by font changes, some teens and adults will get annoyed

However, I do support a feature that changes the default font; maybe an option in the account settings that deals with “site display”.

Lol, it looks EPIC!
It is too unprofessional, though.
In case your interested, these people hate Comic Sans so much, they've actually started a movement.

I’m writing my book in fifth person, so every sentence starts out with:
“I heard from this guy who told somebody …”

No support, I think it would look way too unprofessional. Although I don't mind the font that much (my social studies teacher last year literally used it on every worksheet he made, so I'm kind of used to it ), it would probably be annoying to most people.

No support, because it makes the website look less serious, but however, I do like the idea of being able to change the website font to your own taste.
