This poll attempts to find a small default size for 'guihints' to suggest to developers. (More information about guihints can be found in the thread guihints - preview01).

This poll is only for people who already own a Pandora (please also don't take part if you only own another device that features the same type of screen as the Pandora, such as the 'Archos 605', since the way content is displayed may differ). In the following image, which has to be viewed fullscreen on a Pandora's screen, please select the smallest sized guihint (40, 38, 36, 34, 32, 30, 28, 26, 24, 22, 20, 18 or 16) that you believe may still be about as comfortably seen in a game at a glance as the largest size (40). Keep in mind that, depending on the game they are used in, guihints are sometimes displayed on messy backgrounds or even in in-game action.

Thank you for you help with increasing the usability of the Pandora.

Only 5 votes so far? Come on Pandora owners, this deserves more attention than this.

At least the votes are reasonably concentrated!
Yes, but from such a small sample size you can't really conclude anything.
True, all we know is that the best is probably between 30 and 20, which isn't worth much :unsure:
Unfortunately it was almost guaranteed that few people would take part. In anticipation of this circumstance, the main purpose of this poll was to potentially falsify my already existing assumption of the smallest 'unclear' size being somewhere around 24 or 26.


I'm now adjusting the drop shadow that is being used for all guihints.
