MobaFire, I have a question!

(First, the guide link)
http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/build/how-to-master-prodigious-spellcraft-104051

(Second, the inquiry)
A guide has to be wonderful to read as well as to look AT. Hence, colour & FONT.

I'm curious, how much colour and font is too much...how much is too little? Do I have the right balance? Is it lopsided?

Further more, for further guides I may write in the future, is there any general advice on the amount/variety of colour and font?

Thanks!

~Bly

He's asking if the amount of gay-nes and obnoxious text choices is appropriate.
Honestly, I think it's a bit too much. There's far, far too many color choices and, the random underlining and itialicising is just annoying to me.

ya I would pull back a little on the font colors, it's a little much when it's randomly mushed together, the way you did your runes section is a more acceptable way of coloring text

Especially in the runes section. Just use the color for the main (suggested) rune or just the MARKS / SEALS titles. Bright blue gets hard to read fast. I'd say a little too much of the red/green in the intro too, try to tone it back.

SO MANY COLOURS!!! ARGH!!!

but srsly: try to cut back a little so that the reader's head wont explode. It's a bit too much and it makes it hard to follow without wanting to use a spoon to take ur eyes out.
