Ask Ubuntu new site theme coming soon

I myself would not mind if the bottom was less high. There should be enough room to make rows 2 and lower into 6 colums making it almost 1/2 the size. Never going to happen I know ;-) The orange bar ...

Ask Ubuntu new site theme is live

Basically my only concern is that the orange header bar is so huge, and yet it doesn't do anything at all. It's as tall as an entire question! I don't understand why Stack Overflow gets a unified ...

Ask Ubuntu new site theme coming soon

Like Rinzwind also already noted in his answer, the huge orange top bar is now mainly useless and empty. While I see that this is how it's supposed to be to match the new overall theme structure, it ...

The top menu has moved to the left

Sorry about that. I broke this while rolling out support for fixed topbar across all network sites. There's no graceful way to make this work right now with the custom bar in play as well. Not ...

Is there any official "Ask Ubuntu" color defined?

As far as I am aware there is no official "Ask Ubuntu" colours, however, before the change to responsive design, this site did use the official Ubuntu colour scheme. Rather than be concerned ...

Can chat get a redesign? Please?

Ask Ubuntu on mobile has an extremely large font size

This is supposedly a fixed bug: Mobile font-size way too large. But with caching involved, it may take a while to go away, and which sites you see it on is a matter of timing. I don't see the problem ...

Push users through the Tour as part of onboarding

I'd go for the option of having a banner that reminds the user. By "banner" I mean a bar at the top like that one that appears to tell people that the site is about to go into read only mode for ...

With the recent redesign of post notices w.e.f. Dec 5, 2019, the banner has been reduced to just one and that too appears on the top eliminating all the confusions which were present before. Unlike ...
