Please report problems with the 2 supplied styles in this topic.
Also please post bugs here.

This topic is not for "I don't like it" or "this should be changed to X".
We have a separate topic for that.

Is there any way to disable the background checkerboard pattern on every other post? It makes the text unclear/fuzzy. I'm using the latest Google Chrome Version 79.0.3945.88 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Screenshot example of what I'm talking about:

Oh no! That definitely looks not good and I apologise to your eyes. I’ve put this on my to-do list to improve.

Yes, it’s my fault.

Was mentioned in the other thread, but just in case.

Remove the scroll effect when jumping to a different location in the page (e.g., via link to end of thread, after making a new post, while doing a search for words in the page etc). It is really distracting, hard on the eyes, probably heavy on system resources, and serves no useful purpose.

Are the not-aligned "Z" lines that create multiple boxes everywhere intended? I guess they are since they are everywhere, but it looks so weird to me that I thought to ask

also next to topics with more than 1 page the page numbers are missing... for example you search for new posts and you get the "I got this retro hardware today" thread because someone posted there. There are no page buttons anymore on the search, you click the thread and takes you to the 1st page of the topic then you need to click on the last page to get the new posts

Creeper 😉 (Golly, some of my early posts are embarrassing...)

What you're complaining about is not leaping out at me, which specifically is affected?

Not a bug but the big elephant in the room style issue:

The disconnected lines are highly disorienting.

A related problem: the offset dotted lines behind the zigzagging solid lines.

I get that it's a 90's style thing, but I don't think that's necessary to exude a 90's aura. Can we just have normal boxes? It makes everything look like there are border bugs in the CSS.

I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.

I fixed it already 😀

Yes, it’s my fault.

The dithering causes flicker even on the new theme. It's not a problem that's unique to the "Old Skool" theme.

Please replace all instances of the dithering pattern with solid colors.

Your next line is...

emotion icons are barely visible even with large font. You need to zoom in a lot to see them.
And no text when i place mouse cursor over them.
I can open a quote windows to check what the icon is though 😉
i can also disable them in settings.

Also there is no choice of them when posting a message. I guess a collapsing one could be OK if you don't want them there.
