Whilst absolutely loving the idea of this community platform,
must admit that I find the appearance/design somewhat underwhelming.
I appreciate that because the forum is running on Discourse the design options are somewhat limited. Having said that it is possible to customise themes on Discourse—from creating a full theme to just incorporating some theme-components (see e.g. this topic on Discourse Meta)
For instance, it wouldn’t take too much work to align the theme/look here with the CSS styles of the main website with regard to the typography of the headings, etc. Topics could be spaced out in a visually more harmonious way (alternating row colours? etc.). And so on. Can’t help thinking that more of a consistency, as well as some relatively minor improvements would make for a better user experience overall.
Is there someone working on any design improvements (at least re: some CSS-tweeking) already or could this perhaps be looked into?
