Hi All, as you can see the new design just went live. Which means this site has been officially launched! Congratulations! Thank you for your design feed back. I have made some tweaks based on your suggestions.

If you're still seeing the old favicons, please load the following URLs and do a hard browser refresh.



If you see any CSS bugs, please start a new post and tag it with "design" and "bug."

Again, congrats!

  • Nice work! BTW there was once talk of a domain name... did anything ever come of it?

  • @nw1 see this thread: meta.gis.stackexchange.com/q/3 basically we decided not to do custom domain names, unless the domain name is exceptionally good.

Hi Jin, I really like the site. One quibble though is that I find it a little hard on my eyes. Would it be possible to have greater contrast between the background/foreground? Maybe it's just me, though.

I didn't notice this when I looked at the mockups otherwise I would have mentioned it.

  • I agree...it may be age or vision...but otherwise looks great

  • I'll adjust the text colors accordingly. btw I assume you were talking about the main site. How's the contrast for you on the Meta site?

  • still a bit light, especially in the "related" links to the right and the "help" under the Add comment buttons etc

  • yes - I was referring to the main site. The contrast on meta is ok - still a bit light personally. I can read it also, but I do feel with both sites like it's a slight strain (I'm a young person, with glasses for distance).....
