I’ve made changes to the dithering on the oldskool theme; people who were having trouble reading text there please let me know how it is now.

I am also not a fan of anything that moves for no reason such as the logo and when you click into boxes etc.
Your OS reduce motion setting should be respected and will remove animation effects when it’s detected. If you have this turned on and are using a supported browser and still see this, please let me know so I can double check that the animations are correctly gated.

Actually one more minor complaint: while I was writing the above post in the 'quick reply' box, someone else posted at the same time. When I went to swtich over to the full editor, the forum warned me about it & brought up a dialog screen, but the two options it presented (something like "do you want to update your post, or keep it as-is") didn't make any sense in the context of what had happened. I had no idea which one was the 'right' option to select.
I picked the "wrong" option (keep as-is IIRC) and it acted like a 'cancel' button. Fortunately I'd copied my entire text into the clipboard out of paranoia or I would have lost the whole thing.
IMHO those options need to be changed to something obvious like "Keep posting" or "discard your post."
Thanks for noticing this! phpBB uses the same page when there’s an edit conflict and doesn’t set any new flag (it just hacks in overrides for the original language dictionary entries), so it was showing the “post edit conflict” resolution options instead of the “reply conflict” resolution options. This should be fixed now.

I too would like an "Active topics" link that doesn't require to be logged in. It was present in the old layout and handy when you want to peruse what topics are active without logging in.
OK, I added this link for logged out users. It’s always named “new posts” to try to reduce confusion (i.e. “why is this suddenly gone?” when logged in), following the logic that they’re both new posts lists and it just happens to be more tailored when you are logged in because the system has better information on what’s actually new to you.
