I've noticed persons "promote" option without them saying they are new before. If it were a different color it might help.

I agree with everything written in the '#spam' post, though I'd like to revisit the last line here since it's more to the point of this discussion.

    I think promotion should he used to include people who have shown they are outstanding community members. Regular old community members can get in the door with a minimal amount of conversational engagement.

The intent of this discussion (at least, how I'd like to view it) boils down to the retention rate of new users post-promotion implementation. Outstanding community members of late, to me have arisen from their own posts, sometimes taking 5 posts or more until interest (shares) come. That is, once they've gotten comfortable with the community. I would be surprised if that was after they've completed a full spoke.

I think a different color would be functional.

kantos  ·  130 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I'm a bit confused with this idea. Would it not make more sense to merely disable the promotion option for those accounts that were created before the date of implementation? That way if the account has option to promote, they are strictly (relatively) new.

mk - what do you think?

mk  ·  130 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Hm. What color?

thenewgreen  ·  130 days ago  ·  link  ·  

New = green, right?

kleinbl00  ·  130 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I so don't trust mk's color choices. And besides, people who follow you are already green.

Just let me build my own stylesheet, fer chrissake. Let me pick colors and fonts and background and we'll call it a day.

I thought it would just color the promote link, not their name.

kantos  ·  129 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Yellow is a good in-between for the existing green and blue (given the color wheel).

Also, serves as a 'warning' sign to those in dark mode. /s

aka asphalt and chewing gum mode

kantos  ·  129 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Asphalt and chewing gum is a small price to pay for the brighter alternatives.

kleinbl00  ·  129 days ago  ·  link  ·  

And we kid a lot but clearly, stylesheets are deeply personal.

kantos  ·  129 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Agreed. What I'd give for a d20 dark mode...

Would something like this:

work for you guys? I'm open for taking input and critique. This is just a quick and dirty modification of the dark theme.

Well, it wouldn't be the first time when I attempt to do something against my better judgement.

kantos  ·  129 days ago  ·  link  ·  

That alongside the font used for d20 is how I imagined it. Not sure if you use dark by default, yet the fonts, spacings and palettes as you know differ.

On the side of kb, pretty sure he thinks dark mode is dirty enough, if ya smell what I'm farting.

Devac  ·  129 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I do use dark, it's on the second screenshot. ;)

The customisation bit isn't out of the question, though. An extension like Stylish allows you to choose the details like fonts from a menu (and I think that there's a convenient spectrum to pick the colours so that you don't have to speak hexadecimal to set them). I can try and cook something like that and post it on the Userstyles page later this week.

I'll get back to you.

Cool.
