As you may have already noticed, our new design is live! ✧*｡٩(ˊᗜˋ*)و✧*
Thanks for all the input over the years, and particularly in the most recent Meta posts around this (here and here). As was mentioned in last month's update, we commissioned an artist with experience in the style to execute this community's design, and I'm really excited to present y'all with the final work, which I believe addresses most (if not all) of the concerns y'all had raised about our previous attempt.
Here are some screenshots, for posterity:
As mentioned previously, the logo also got some tweaks (feedback), thanks to Lisa! Our chat theme and Twitter account also got a refresh and will be updated soon, and you should also see some changes in the newsletter!
I mentioned in the last update that since the design would be generated outside our usual process, we'll only be doing any styling tweaks, or fixing egregious issues we somehow missed — so if you stumble upon bugs, please post 'em as an answer here! :)
I'd like to once again thank everyone here for their feedback and patience, and hope everyone enjoys this design! :D
Thanks for all the feedback below. I've added status-completed to stuff we worked on, and cleared some other doubts around stuff we didn't work on. In addition to that, there were also a few things we spotted we'd missed the first time around:
- Fixed contrast issues on "site rooms" button in chat;
- Added the flying hat to the chat bar, to spruce it up a bit (will prolly take a bit longer to build, FYI);
- Some fixes to the Twitter logo.
