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).
I took the Metafilter White user style (by jreid), spliced in some code from other sources, and came up with this, for the purpose of a more low-contrast style than the black-on-white of Metafilter White. UPDATE (3/28/2010): I noticed I had forced a font choice, and that it was causing errors on smaller screens; removing those lines seems to have done the trick. UPDATE (5/8/2010): I may have finally fixed a display bug that involved the unboldfacing of a navigation link while hovering over it. UPDATE (9/22/2012): Some changes to restore border-radius functioning and to bring in line with required Userstyles.Org change.
Changes Source Sans Pro to Open Sans and Montserrat to Signika, along with a good few other readability fixes. Also adds scanlines back to the header. I strongly recommend using this in conjunction with my fix to remove byline shading and indentation. Works in both light and dark mode. You will need to install the fonts Signika and Open Sans, or change them in the CSS to something else.
Same concept as Metafilter - Baby Blue
Like the modern MeFi theme, but don't like the floating top bar? This style will preserve the fixed full top menu, but disable the floating mini top bar.
Shows unicorn and narwhal buttons on the comment form, and a laser kitty on deleted posts (for logged-in members). Based on user script originally created by Rhomboid; updated to support Modern theme.
Improves the contrast of www.metafilter.com (the blue), ask.metafilter.com (the green), and metatalk.metafilter.com (the gray). Update (20080607): add metatalk style, tweak new bestleft class for author's comments, darken background for related questions box
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).
Don't like Metafilter's new headlines? Improve 'em!
Do you like Metafilter FanFare but hate the white background? This style is for you. White, blue and gray text on a black background with dark gray accents. Soothe your poor eyes. They've suffered enough.
