Not-so-daily Tildes discussion

I've already been doing this a little (both deliberately and not), but I'm going to stop specifically finding something to make a Daily Discussion post about every day. I'll definitely still be asking for input and posting about general site topics often, but I think it'll be good to move to doing it as more of an "on-demand" thing. Part of the reason for doing daily discussions was to try and help boost the site's activity, but I think we've gotten to the point now where it's not really needed any more.

There's already a pretty good backlog of plans and ideas that we've discussed in the previous posts but I haven't had a chance to implement yet, and I don't want to get too far ahead of ourselves in talking about all sorts of features that may not show up for quite a while. I'll still be making changelog posts whenever a significant update is deployed to get feedback on those, and if there are any features that are being worked on that I'm not completely certain about, I'll post to ask for input on those as well.

In terms of more formally scheduled posts, as mentioned this Monday I'd like to keep making a post at the beginning of each week with general plans, and I'll probably keep doing an overall feedback/questions/suggestions one every couple of weeks or so as well.

Other than that, as always please feel free to post in ~tildes with any questions, feedback or suggestions you have, or submit things directly to the issue tracker on GitLab if you're comfortable doing that.

    I've mentioned it elsewhere, but to put it plain: as a newer member here, I dislike the existing "front page" available views. I just need a "white" view with a bit more contrast in the text, similar to the comments section, which is excellent. The blue text link color is too faded, and the smaller text is gray-on-white, making it hard to see (at least for me). It makes it difficult to quickly browse a list of links that should be a lot easier with a bit more contrast. Maybe a "White - High Contrast"?

    Also, most sites and apps that offer a dark view offer both an "OLED" (pure black), and a lighter dark view, sort of a charcoal gray background with light gray text. That sounds like the opposite of my "high contrast" request above, but its' actually very readable. The dark view here is pure black with white text, something a lot more handy on phones, particularly OLED phones. That's definitely second on my particular wish list, but I thought I should mention it.
