There's a related post on MSE here, and I encourage people to weight in there - I'm probably a lot more annoyed when I wrote it, a little later, and I don't see the point repeating it here. As a long term user, and a moderator on SU, I'm pretty frustrated with the specific approach taken, and as a lot of folks pointed out, we got stuck with what's ...

I join my voice to @magicandre1981 (same glasses?) : "Text font is too thin, so same eyestrain like on SO." I'm not referring to the text of posts or answers, but for example to the lists of posts. The black is more readable after zooming into the page (which is not really a good solution), but the blue is too faint to read without strain and even more so ...

status-completed We reverted to the bi-color logo on the main site and removed the other "disjointed logos" on the site bar Please keep the old bicoloured logo Seriously. The new one looks bleak in comparison What's with the weird disjointed logos on the RHS? As @Burgi correctly points out: Update Early July: Collect and respond to feedback from ...

Yeah, on Super User .post-text a:hover's border-bottom: 1px #6C0000 dotted; is more specific than the border defined for .post-text .post-tag, and the variation in border definitions causes it to flip back and forth between the hover and non-hover states. Tweaking the selector/adding the border definition to the .post-text a.post-tag:hover style should fix ...

I also posted a response on Meta. The trashed logo and the vomit-inducing noise serving as artwork, as covered in other answers, seriously degrade the site's image and give it an amateurish appearance. I can only assume that whoever worked on the Super User redesign had an axe to grind with this site. Aside from the general changes that affect all sites, ...

Here's a straight copy and paste from my answer on the Meta.SE thread: Superuser I think brand colouring and identity is important. I have slightly tweaked the proposed Superuser theme to use the on-brand colour from the colourised Superuser logo: The right-hand side logo mosaic, doesn't really represent the Superuser logo that I am familiar with, the ...

I think it sucks. The most important thing, in my opinion, would be to keep the current coloured logo. I've added a related post on MSE with a couple of mock-ups that keep the current logo and are distinctly different from the default and MSE themes.

The fonts used for the headers have changed. The font selection for headers is now: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif It apparently used to be: Trebuchet MS, Liberation Sans, DejaVu Sans, sans-serif

status-bydesign The updated Super User layout has rolled out. Some things will take getting used to, but one item is a confusing placement. The question title is essentially in a box. The Ask Question button is inside the same box. That isn't a big problem with a short title. But with a long title, the Ask Question button becomes part of the title. ...

I like the layout of the new site but the colours seem too generic and "off-brand" for one of the trilogy sites. I feel a much darker blue would be better. I have made an image for comparison: I'm not a fan of the multiple corrupted logos in the top right. I would be much happier if these all lined up correctly. I am a little cynical as to what our ...

Sorry, this is no answer, as the question includes no question ;) I try to avoid anti-aliased fonts wherever possible as I second the opinion, that these "hurt eyes and damage eyesight". The disadvantage is that a lot of web pages look ugly, because fonts are nowadays designed to be displayed anti-aliased only. Unfortunately this now also applies to SU (...

Wow, it actually works better on my weird monitor setup of 2-3 really narrow windows. To be honest can hardly tell and will have forgotten shortly. Thanks :)

From the screenshot, one can see that the font is something ricidulously wide. It's actually one of the fonts explicitly specified in the CSS (and not a generic sans-serif fallback for people that have no fonts), DejaVu Sans Bold, and therefore a legitimate bug. It specifies the font selection Arial, 'Liberation Sans', 'DejaVu Sans', sans-serif for the bold ...

OK, moderators have officially been mailed the form to obtain the cards. Stay tuned!

Looks fine to me over here. My guess is you have an ad-blocker turned on, since that's where the ad would go. Ads are hidden once you reach 200 reputation points. Since you have >300 rep on Stack Overflow, and <200 on Super User, that explains why you're seeing it here and not there. If you turn off your ad-blocker, then I'm guessing a banner image will ...

status-completed When hovering over a tag, the text inside becomes unreadable because the text and background color are too similar: Edit: Looks like this has been fixed. Edit 2: The problem is isolated to favorite tags. Hovering over a favorite tag is subject to this issue; non-favorite tags are not affected.

feature-requeststatus-review Please make the introduction text not clash with the theming around it. Here is the new theming: The introduction text, explaining what the site is for and how it works, clashes with the normal color scheme. It goes dark-light-dark-light. The old version from the Web Archive (some of the images are broken) has good theming ...

status-completed Responsiveness is always enabled and there is no link to disable it : What I'd really like is to be able to disable the responsive "change depending on your real estate" and always just have the left bar and main area, without the bar on the right. Perhaps a way to say "I always want to see x and y... but if you can fit z in then go ...

This seems to be fixed now

I have pushed a fix for this. The change will be live after our next production build.

I could just write that you shouldn't use the cheapest hardware you can find outside of spec. This won't help you though. But I don't think the site design will get optimized for your case either. There's a real solution of the Super User kind, however: userscripts. Install greasemonkey (or your browser's equivalent) and override the colors shown to you. ...

This seems to happen when IE8 is running in compatibility mode, at least that's how I managed to reproduce the issue. Solution: check to see if compatibility mode is active, and if it is, disable it. There's two ways to do that: if you see the compatibility mode icon next to the address bar, click on it: alternatively, hit F12 to open Developer Tools, ...

This has been fixed and will be out in rev. 1340.

status-planned Responsiveness is a work in progress. It is likely that we will be redesigning review queues, profiles and mod tools before making them responsive. No time table for that work yet. It's not resizing at all in review queues: However looks fine on the main site view:

Here's what occurred to me: In the spirit of forbidding 20k users to even search for just the number of deleted posts, I think it's funny that you can still get a list of deleted posts by looking at badges. The difference to posts shown in the flag queue is that you (as the flagging user) need some visual representation of a post that due to a flag – in ...

I know that RGB isn't the best color space to make this argument, but it should still be obvious that the proposal just doesn't work. Anything darker (enough to be more readable) is barely distinguishable from the regular link color. Please provide actual colors, ideally mockups, for your proposal, that make visited links more readable and keep regular and ...
