Yesterday, I changed the font size on a post I was making.  Now, all the posts are appearing in a very small font.  I'm going to make this post bigger too. How do i set my default forum reading font?  My eyes can't read this size anymore!!!!!

I don't know of a "Setting" anywhere that would make a specific font a "default" for an individual member. Adam or Jim(norsky) would be able to answer that. You may need to delete the C3VR cookies, and probably your cache.
Have you tried a different browser(Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer) to see if it does the same thing?
Sometimes just closing the browser and re-opening will get everything back to "normal"....
I'm just throwing out ideas....

Another thing...did you happen to "copy/paste" something from somewhere else(Word doc, e-mail or another site) into a post? I have seen that do strange things to subsequent posts. Usually just exiting the browser will put eveything back the way it was.

There are a couple of things you can try.  If you are using Internet Explorer for your web browser there should be a menu bar just above the C3VR banner.  On it should be an entry labeled View.  Click on it using the left button on your mouse and a menu should drop down.  There should be an entry in the drop down list labeled Text Size.  If you hover your mouse pointer over it another drop down menu should appear that has several options ranging from Largest to Smallest.  The current text size setting should have a dot in front of it.  To change the text size setting use the left button on your mouse to click on a different size.
 
Another thing to try is using the Zoom feature of IE.  In the lower right hand corner you may see a little maginfying glass icon with a percentage number followed by a down pointing arrowhead.  Clicking on the magnifying glass will increase the font size on the page (zooming in) and clicking on the percentage number will decrease the font size on the page (zooming out).  You can do the same thing by holding down the control key (Ctrl) on your keyboard and pressing the plus key (+) to increase the font size on the page (zooming in) or pressing the minus key (-) to decrease the font size on the page (zooming out). 
 
Hope that helps.

I got it.  I use Firefox.  Under the View menu is a zoom option and a reset option under that.  Viola!  I'm back to normal...well the type size is anyway.

One other thing if you ever want to increase the font on any site, if you have a mouse with a wheel, you can hold the CTRL key down on the keyboard while spinning the mouse wheel.  This should zoom in/out on most browsers.

Glad to hear you found the reset option, though.
