out of all honesty, I dont understand what is wrong with the font? Im not trying to be mean I just dont see whats wrong with the font?
The font looks good to me; the only thing I'd change is the transparent background as most curve users use Opera mini and it does put a damp on most themes with transparent menus. But hey it's your theme and you decide what you want to do with it you know? Keep up the good work.
What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?

No worries. Firstly, thanks for the sharing as well as the sakura bg.
If I don't remember wrong Maxx your themes are mostly designed for
320x240 devices, meanwhile 83xx, 88xx or plus 87xx series. Throughout
free themes you have contributed to the scene, Summer Air, Ubuntu, Mac
and Droid inspired series, iGlass and the latest Glass just to name a
few, I can totally feel your affections on iphone like icons, buuf
icons, tango icons; also on thin transparent title bar, transparent
menu and bottom dock zen icon layout with glamour custom backgrounds.
Despite my personal tastes, I can easily see your style.
Around me there are a few people in their middle ages who are also
blackberry users. When I introduced your themes to them, they got
confused on your font setting. The whole things about the themes are
great, except for fonts are not customizable which means these
blackberry users are unable to see the screen clearly. These people
have to wear reading glasses while reading message lists in default
mode (BBalfpha Sans font in 9 ponds), no wonder what would happen when
they load your themes. Plus, as a 24 years old ordinary guy without any
eyesight problem, still I find your tiny square fonts a bit harsh for
me. Ever visited trance [dot] nu? A trustful and resourceful website on electronic dance music yet with super tiny unreadable fonts. Your themes fonts give me the same feeling I got while surfing it.
I believe font customization enabled theme gives the users the right to choose proper interfaces they desire. Plus IMHO some round fonts fit your themes even thighter. And we all know Opera Mini is so popular and the transparent menu doesn't work well with it.
But hey, it is still your theme and your thread, I didn't mean to hijack it, just poured my thoughts about your themes.
Thank you for the response,
Now I understand the problem.
I will work on the transparent menu because I know opera mini has a problem with that. Although I think Opera should fix that, I have no place to judge.
My last question is, does anyone know how to make the fonts user customizable?
That's an easy but easily missed out thing. Just leave the list font setting alone in default mode, I mean when compsing a theme in Plazmic, simply don't change any bit of the list font or size setting, after exporting proccess then your font customization enabled theme is good to go.
Any luck on the font setting Maxx?
Very nice theme! I really like the Firefox-inspired icons but I really don't care for the font much. Imho, I think the crisp clean look of Alpha Sans would improve the overall appearance of an otherwise sharp looking theme. Would also improve readability too. I would also love to see an OS 4.5 'L' version of this theme. Keep up the great work!
excellent ... looks very very nice ^^
I really like this theme. Thanks maxx! And honestly I don't mind the fonts. They're cute lol thanks again.

will you be releasing this for pearl?
I have to say if someone gives u something for free you shouldn't ever complain! If you want to complain build it yourself. Or better yet pay somebody to make it! I think the theme is great! I have used many themes and was currently using a bold theme on my curve because the see-thru icons all the reason because I haven't found icons I like. Well now I have found the one I am trading it for. Keep up the good work!
