For questions not covered in the FAQ.

For every 100 fonts submitted to Dafont, approximately how many are approved for inclusion on the site?

Every so often when downloading, I get a warning window that the font is 'heavy', and may cause problems when opened in preview. Could you explain this problem a bit? Is there a list of fonts that have been deemed 'heavy'?

Thanks,

~bito

heavy, over-sized, very big.

It usually happens when there are too many points in a glyph, which makes the Windows font viewer become mad when ClearType is enabled (= under Windows Vista / Seven for sure, I don't know yet for Windows 8 - but no problem for the old XP that doesn't use ClearType by default)

Add, depending on available memory and tasks running fonts of about over 250 K is size will make Windows font viewer fall in coma. The same happens with a few font managers.
One more reason to avoid font files that size and over.
