Not quite sure there's much I can teach in that regard. Design-wise it's basically about choosing colours that just look good in night mode.

My recommended approach to 'converting' stylesheets would be using a CSS preprocessor. I use Less for maintaining the two official stylesheets. This allows me to declare variables (e.g. colours, font sizes, etc.), and use them in place of hard-coded values (color: #f00 becomes color: @some-variable). Each stylesheet then uses the same main files, but has a different set of variables (examples: 1, 2). There are also other nice features, such as nested rules and macros, which vanilla CSS doesn't support.

And while I'm on it, it's also possible to clone the git repository, mess around with the stylesheets, then compile the Less code into CSS and submit it as a theme here with 'append to default style' unchecked.

No, because the regular custom stylesheet is assumed to be made for 'day mode' and thus would look terrible if it were applied in night mode.

I realise it's inconvenient to have to make two stylesheets, but in my opinion it really is the best solution to avoid black text on black backgrounds or burning eyes at night.

Not a bug. There's a separate setting for the custom stylesheet to use in night mode. /f/esperanto has a custom stylesheet in both modes, for instance.

On mobile, the gradient in the nav bar stretches when expanding the menu. You can test this by resizing your browser window. I believe repeating-linear-gradient with pixel/em/rem values as opposed to percentages will fix it.

Unfortunately, there's no REST API or anything similar at the moment.

We really ought to have some automoderator-like functionality to enable mods to filter out the most aggressive spam. This should be a long-term goal.

As for the /f/sex spam, I think basic flood protection and URL/phrase blocking could take care of it. I will add this functionality when I have the time.

Not yet. I was going to allow data: URLs, but that would open the possibility for embedding SVGs with nasty attributes.

/r/fuckthealtright is inhabited by the same obnoxious, Clinton-worshipping dweebs that post on /r/enoughtrumpspam. You are free to declare your empty #rEsiStaNcE towards Trump and assorted bigotry, but if you dare suggest that society must be reformed, or that Trump is a result of the current political and economical systems, you're out of there.

Good thing she's a lesbian, otherwise her standing up for racists would not be okay!

God forbid some slavery-defending piece of shit human has to cough up $5 for another fucking flag.

Yes, this is exactly where left-wing liberal-bashing originated.

Last night we switched from using icon fonts to using SVG versions of the icons instead. It seems SVG is disabled when using Tor Browser's highest security setting, something I was unaware of. Ironically enough, switching to SVG was intended to avoid issues with the icons not showing.

I'll look into a fix for this. Suggestions are also welcome.

Edit: should be fixed now. Hopefully this doesn't adversely affect other browsers.
