      Thank you! If you (or anyone else) ever feel like writing anything about Tildes you feel is worth highlighting definitely feel free to do so in Markdown or just plaintext and PM it to me, I'll make sure it ends up pretty. :D

    These reports would be a great place to "Triage" from to prioritize and highlight items that contributors can grab and start working on. :-)

      Pretty much every issue labeled "feature" is probably the ones people should focus on, since Deimos has already decided he would like them implemented. Whereas for most issues labeled "suggestion" and "investigate" that is largely undecided yet.

      However if people see a "suggestion" or "investigate" issue they really want to implement, they shouldn't let that stop them... they should just say so on Gitlab in the comments for that issue, and Deimos usually chimes in to let people know what he thinks and how he would like to see it done.

    Just a tiny theme nitpick: Your colors are way too pronounced. I opened your site and had to look away. It is way too bright.

      I'm not really sure what you mean, it's a dark theme... If that's "too bright" maybe try turning down your screen brightness or something? Maybe if you explain in more detail? I can't wrap my head around Dracula being "too bright" of all things.

        I think he means the borders, they seem too colorful for a dark theme. Maybe try toning them down a bit. I'd say something like #c1c78c for the yellow one and #c22 for the red one would be the best.

          Sorry, but I'm not going to change the Dracula colors. I'll look into making the borders smaller and less frequent though. If it's any solution, reader mode works well on the site. cc. @user2

              I mean the site has been like this for almost a year and this is the first I'm hearing of the colors. I understand the problem (and have trouble using sites with light themes myself) however I choose to work around it wherever I can, and reader mode works well and should allow you to access it.

        I'm thinking @user2 is referencing the lightness of the accent colors: the table-of-contents border and the headings border. Dark themes may sometimes employ colors that are too light. Some people, on the other hand, have sensitive eyes, and to them, those accent colors will stand the hell out. I'm halfway there, and the tones stand out. Not the background, and not the text color: only the border colors.

        If you wanna get a sense of how big the effect is, check out the color the <details> element is in: #6272a4, or hsl(225, 27%, 51%). It's unsaturated (the 27% value is "Saturation" in HSL) and relatively, but not overly, bright (51%, "Lightness"). Compare it to hsl(65, 92%, 76%) of the #wrapper > h1 bottom border, which is both bright, saturated, and in the yellow part of the color field, which are naturally-bright colors.

        Also for comparison, check out the Zeus theme.

        I'm not saying Dracula is bad: just elaborating on what I think the issue is for the original commenter.

        On your website, I think the yellow around the ToC is a bit "offending", maybe a more darker colour from the scheme for such a big accent could help with the issues. But it doesn't cause any trouble to me, really. BTW this page has quite a bit of personality going for it, I like it!

        My screen brightness is at its lowest settings. The horizontal lines are way too bright, the red/yellow/orange lines. They just penetrate my eyes into my very soul and I have to immediately close the tab.

        And also, the white from the h1 headers is way too white. Perhaps try an off-white color?

    l think it's the white on black, it hurts my eyes too. Even on low brightness, l think the contrast is just a little too high.

    For instance the Solarized Dark theme on tildes has gray text color, not pure white, and that's pleasant to read. High contrast white on black often has the effect that it starts blurring or gets hard to read.

    Sidenote: the paragraph justify leaves some really big spaced between words which hinders reading a lot.

      I mean they're not pure white on black, although the white is definitely up there (#F8F8F2) the "black" isn't black at all: #282A36. Oh, did I never remove the justify text rule? I'll fix that.

        Has the foreground colour for Dracula changed, or did I have it wrong? I thought white was supposed to be #f8f8f8.
