Front Page: Cthulhu'd?

It appears that the front page is having some issues. I apologize for the large image, but I wanted to make it clear what is and isn't currently being affected by some sort of elder god.

Edit: After some brief testing, it seems to only be happening when using Chrome on my Windows machine. Tried clearing cache and other standard procedure, but the garbled text remains.

    Christ, how did you manage that? I'll have to wait and see if anyone else reports it I'm afraid.

    Did you try disabling any plugins?

    Yep, tried disabling plugins and extensions, nothing changed. I tried completely purging Chrome and reinstalling, but no dice.

    Doing some further investigation, it seems like the affected areas all use the Montserrat web font. Anything that is using the Bold version of the same font (or another one entirely) displays as normal. To add to the mystery, if I try typing into the search box, it will display the previous alphabetical character (i.e. b instead of a, l instead of k). I can't identify any malware problems either, so this one has me stumped. Will keep testing.

    Same issue here on Chrome 36. Pretty sure it's Chrome having problems loading the "Montserrat" font, but only the normal weighted version of it. Bold doesn't appear to have the problem.

    Using Firefox, the forum looks pretty janky right now, lots of things overlaping, fonts extra big, etc.

    I, for one, enjoyed the Mako.

    If it's not the same issue, start a new thread.

    Huh, yeah, I am seeing the same problem now on chrome on the front page.

    Version 36.0.1985.18 beta-m

    I assume it's a chrome problem, since on my same machine it looks fine on IE.

    Did you enable chrome://flags/#enable-direct-write? Because I got some nasty Cthulhuing on Twitter after I did.

    edit: This is Chrome 35.0.1916.114 m

    Worth a shot. I enabled it on a suggestion, then saw glitching that looked almost the same and hoped it was related.
