Should the default font size be increased to 12?

Yes. 10pt is too small to read, 12pt is much better.
4 (100%)
No. 10pt is just right, 12pt is too big for my monitor.

Lately, I find myself increasing the font size to 12pt when posting a message. The default is 10pt, but I was wondering what you guys thought about making 12 point the default font size.

The resolution on all three of the computers I use to read/post on the forum is at least 1920x1080, two of them are 1920x1200. The default 10pt font size is really too small for those screens, but I didn't want to increase the font if the majority of the users preferred 10pt.

If the majority prefers 12pt, I will make that the default size.

This is a sample of a font size of 8 point.
This is a sample of a font size of 10 point.
This is a sample of a font size of 12 point.
This is a sample of a font size of 14 point.

Let me know what you prefer.

I also increased the font size a bit when posting some of my messages. I think the default size should be 12  ;) Thanks!  :)

I also find 12 more comfortable to read.

The default post font size is now 12 point. It only makes sense since the editor uses 12 point, so your post now matches what you type.

No need to change the font size anymore, unless you want to. :D

The change also effects ALL posts in the forum that were saved with the default 10 point size, they will be resized automatically.
