    Sorry for the confusion, I changed the link - ArsTechnica re-posts some FT articles, but without the paywall. So when an Ars version is available, it's usually accessible for more people.

    The Ars version does still refer to them as "Apple supplier" in the sub-title too though.

    The site shouldn't be doing anything non-standard related to fonts that I know of, so I'm not sure why that extension isn't able to override it. It would be useful if you can find any information about how exactly that extension works, but from Tildes' end it just has CSS that sets the font for the html and body elements (basically ones that mean "the entire page"), which should be pretty typical.

    You might also want to see if there are any other extensions available, they might work slightly differently and be able to do it successfully.

    Happy birthday, website!

    Thanks for all the kind words in here, everyone, and thanks for being here. I know that I'm not very visible around the site any more, but I'm still on here every single day, and glad—and proud—to see so many people continuing to hang out here. Tildes is defined by its community, so keep up the good work!

    Yeah, sorry @bj-rn - I'm fairly busy at work today, multiple Malice labels were starting to get thrown around in there in quick succession, and a quick glance at the thread showed that it was already starting to go in a direction that's repeatedly ended up going very, very poorly in the past if people had a chance to continue escalating the arguments with each other. The topic/article itself was totally fine, but the comments tend to turn into a mess where everyone involved ends up angry.

    So I just shut it down, but didn't have the time to post an explanation along with doing that. I do usually try to post an explanation, but I can't always depending on what time it is, where I am, etc.

    If you don't want to see highly-active threads near the top all the time, change your sorting method to one of the options other than "Activity" (and especially don't use "All Activity", if you are). The entire point of the Activity sort is that active threads stay near the top.

    Alternatively, ignore the threads you're tired of seeing and then un-ignore them later if you want to. If you forget to un-ignore them, that's probably a good indication you didn't actually have much interest in the thread anyway.

    Thanks, @Rucker! I've merged the themes in now and they're available on the site.

    However, after trying them out for a short time, I definitely agree with the users who have said that some elements are too low-contrast and difficult to read/distinguish (especially in the Light variant). It will probably be a lot easier for you to play around and evaluate the themes now that you can easily see them applied to actual Tildes pages, so could you please try to submit another merge request soon that adjusts some of the colors to improve those issues?

    I think the best recommendation I could give is Exo One (there's a free "prologue" if you want to try it out). The entire game is based around using its unique momentum-based movement system. It's not particularly long, but probably takes a few hours depending how much time you spend just cruising around for fun. I loved it though, and should really play through it again.

    And definitely going more into "games with great movement" than "games about movement", but I think all of these have especially great flow while moving through their worlds, so might be worth a shot:

    I'll keep an eye out for the topic and set something up to automatically post them all as separate comments so it doesn't need to be done manually. Or if you want to send me the topic's title/text in advance I can post it too along with all of the comments.

    I'll switch it. (@boxer_dogs_dance)

    Having a more accurate title definitely makes it seem like a pretty ridiculous thing to publish an article about (and honestly kind of disappointing to see from the AP). Picking one inconsequential thing to sensationalize out of the new guidance, and then doing it inaccurately.
