MetaFilter FanFare full recolor

A thorough recoloring of MetaFilter's FanFare subsite, inspired by the old dark blue color scheme from film/TV review aggregator Metacritic. Includes color adjustments for visited links, hovering, pop-up video buttons, lightboxes, posting pages, live preview, and Deck ads. Tested using Firefox 30 (w/ Greasemonkey or Stylish), Chrome 36 (w/ Stylish or Blank Canvas Script Handler), and jailbroken iOS 7.1.2 (w/ Userscripts Loader, using this URL to install the script).

Metafilter Minimal Green & Gray

Love the site, hate the style. I based this off of two other styles I found here, Metafilter Baby Blue and Metafilter Just the Story. It could probably use improvement, but it's working well for me. Much more readable, removes the ads (I'd prefer to leave them in to support the site, but the iframes carry the old styling).

Metafilter change visited link color

This script allows you to change the visited link color across the Metafilter sites. It was so close to white that after I clicked on a link in a long narrative (especially on AskMe) I had a hard time finding it again. Note: Plutor, of Mefi Greasemonkey script writing fame, wrote this for me. Thanks Plutor! By default the visited link color is changed to a light brown. Edit the script in Stylish and change the HTML code to anything you like.

MetaFilter: remove byline shading

In the Modern theme, bylines on posts, e.g. "posted by mathowie to MetaFilter-Related at 7:23 AM (1006 comments total)" are shaded slightly darker than the page's background colour. This style removes that shading, and the padding that accompanied it.
