I'm pretty new to Information Security. When I first joined, I was intrigued by the design, and looked up some of the history and discussion about it; it was cool.
When I want back on to the site, not knowing that the theme had been changed, I was wondering what those red and blue lines off to the side were for. I didn't know if they were buttons, or just ...
I think the red and blue lines on the top right side are to dominant. In the old design, they were faded into the bakground, but in the new they have very bold colors that sort of don't work with the theme.
I think giving it a 50% opacity or so would do the trick:
Currently your only option if you want different fonts is to write or copy a user script that does it.
There is definitely no way SE will do this, they have actually rationalised designs and fonts across all the sites to avoid differences.
One a personal note, in my opinion your font choice makes things harder to read for me.
I've been asked to prepare another customized wallpaper, this time with our beloved Sec.SE moderator @RoryAlsop. It's again based on @Jin's original design, with a cut-out from Rory's own photo:
And another, slightly less modified version:
Of course, for our beloved @Jeff Ferland, slightly different approach was in order:
Resolution is for all 2560 x 2048....
It is too dark. I've updated the about box background to a very light teal color to fit with the rest of the site's color scheme. The change will be on production server after our next build. (within 24hrs or so).
I think this should be fixed and the icons should be matched.
There is no good reason why the logos have to look completely different, given that they don't even visibly differ in their size (the 48x48 logo just has more blank space around it while the 32x32 one actually even appears slightly bigger). Sec.SE seems to be the only site that has entirely ...
The site is now very responsive.
However, it is now some kind of glossy that completely does away with the rather impressive lion / blue theme. This was a banner, currently it is an overly stylized icon.
In the original banner the Lion was defending against the red lines using the blue lines, which made sense. These lines were both understated as well as ...
Some new features, such as following questions and answers, are very easy to roll out across the entire network. Just update the codebase and it works. Dark Mode is sadly not one of those things; they'll have to go over all the sites individually (at least the ones with a custom design) and tweak the colors and images.
Some relevant references: the ...
I'm not sure that qualifying these links of "very hard" to distinguish is the right term, at least not on a general basis.
However, where I agree with you is that depending on the screen settings and potential visual limitations affecting the reader, these links may indeed be hard to distinguish from normal text.
That's the reason why often visual ...
