Generally, I like the new layout. I'm not fond of side bar menus because the cut into the main panel width & make the text there crowded, but as long as I can turn that off, it's okay. As pointed out by others, the typography of the logos need some work. If I had to generalize, I'd say the typography for "Game Development" looks inconsistently '...

Visited links just look like underlined text, which doesn't seem like great UX to me. Their hover effect is also almost indistinguishable from the default text color. I didn't bother looking at the CSS, but I can't really tell if there even is a color difference there.

The "META" text in the meta logo could be improved Maybe it's just me, but I feel like the text for “META” doesn't actually fit in well. It's super dark (being the only source of black in the header) and it's squared unlike all other text on the page. It strikes me as a bit like a first-draft pixel font games often have before later revision to style and ...

I've build a simple userstyle to use cause I was annoyed by it: div.message a { color: #d1802a; } https://userstyles.org/styles/103649/make-links-identifiable (One that also does the stars, and every other link in the star list because as far as I can tell there's no other way of telling:) div.message a, #starred-posts a { color: #d1802a; }

Wooo yessss. ♥ It's so pretty I want to touch it. On the subject of touching: At 100% zoom Chromium on Linux, the Questions-button is almost touching the title: At 75% zoom, it overlaps: I did some dev-tools digging in case it's useful: The button's font-family is hitting sans-serif, which on my system (and probably some other Linuxes), defaults to the ...

As you may be able to see, the link colors on Meta.GameDevelopment have been updated. They have been reverted to the standard Meta link colors. Update July 24, 2017 Chat and GD.SE link colors have been updated and will be updated once production builds out. Once production build, I'll update the post's status. Update July 26, 2017 Production has been ...

The ok button on the top left corner of the answer region at the bottom of the page looks a bit weird. Maybe I'm the only one noticing this, maybe not, but I just wanted to report this since it looks a bit out of place. I like the new style overall, there are just some things that could be improved, as previously explained by others.

Overall, I like it (I love that the UFO/wireframe weirdness is gone; apologies to whomever made it but it just never did it for me)... ...Except for the logo text. The fact that some letters have holes and others just have lines where the holes should be (like the "a") makes me think of a badly-scaled piece of pixel art. It makes the weighting of various ...

Oh great, I can't turn it off. [ I'm glad that our various buttons are no longer "gray text on gray backgrounds against a soft gray site" but I wanted to compare the old and the new and I now can't toggle back and forth. Yes, I hit F5 and ctrl-F5, I can't get the non-beta version back. (Minor correction: some parts go back, like the up/down vote buttons) ...

It looks pretty good! The site look and feel has stayed nearly the same in good ways. Our UFOs have gone missing from the site header, but I don't actually miss those UFOs. I also like the revamped site logo with the thickened text borders. It looks superb.

If you look at the "input-area" CSS, there is a missing image: background: #000 url("//cdn.sstatic.net/gamedev/img/bg-notify.png") repeat scroll 0% 0%; Which makes the background of the input area ridiculously bright.

I've fixed this on dev, the change will be on live after our next production build. I've made the links underlined if they appear inside of a code block(same for code block inside of a link as well)

That was indeed just a styling issue. Fixed after the next build of the sites (here as well as on english.se and android.se, and the respective metas; all of these had the same issue). Thanks!

Well it wasn't working for me at first, but after I went to https://sstatic.net/ it gave me that Chrome warning just like in your picture, and after I clicked proceed, it started working for me. If you read the error it says it's a server problem. Just like with Self Signed SSL certificates, it is most likely an anti fishing protection. (Gone wrong in this ...

I changed both the question scores and section headers to have a much lighter font color; the fix will be pushed out in the next few hours. Sorry for the delay on this.

I have noticed a couple of bugs: Multi-lines titles are split in weird spots: I'm using Pale Moon as my web browser, and I get these issues: When I click the flag on comments, the popup is positioned in a weird location; if I change the zoom of the page (using Ctrl+mouse wheel), the pop-up comes back in the center, if I wait a minute or two, the pop-up ...

I know this is probably meant for bug feedback but I honestly think both the original and the new theme looks very outdated and bland. I made a quick mock up. Thoughts? A simple, clean and minimal design with a dark background.

In addition to Kevin's answer, I hacked his snippets into a userstyle that changes the colors of both the stars' links and the rest of them, and also works on all SE sites instead of just GDSE. That part can be edited in the js file. https://userstyles.org/styles/104670/make-links-identifiable-2-0 Note: This script can be used with GreaseMonkey in FireFox ...
