What should the new background/theme look like? The decision asking if we wanted a new theme after the update was pretty unanimous and we collected some feedback on potential ideas for a new one. Almost two years later I think it's time we get the ball rolling again on this one.

We do have an issue with some over-popular works being, well, over-popular, but I don't see any need to explicitly bring race into it. It's definitely true that a few mega popular franchises like Harry Potter and Star Wars largely dominate the bulk of questions on the site. Back in 2016, I was actively working to promote some less popular and more obscure (...

Can we have relevant icons on tags? I'm well aware that tag icons are due to sponsorship, however, this older post asks about adding them outside of sponsorship. It would add a little flair to the site, a nice visual aide, on the tags to visually distinguish them better. Alternatively, and more on a discussion side if we don't just want them to look pretty, ...

Ignored tag still shows up in HNQ? Spoilers, people don't like 'em. HNQ + spoilers, well we're just asking for trouble there. A request was made a while back to make it so ignored tags don't show up in the HNQ. This seems like a good middle ground between blocking the whole HNQ or putting up with spoilers. We're always going to have people complaining about ...

Can we have a per-tag "Make Spoilers Visible" button? Allowing users to opt in to automatically uncovering spoilers on posts which have a specific tag seems like it could be useful. If you're not bothered about spoilers on a particular work yourself, spoiler tags are only really a nuisance. Especially so when you get to a popular just released work ...

Can we add a way to allow tags to be marked as dependent upon other tags? Our whole tagging system is a mess relies heavily on tag hierarchies. Other tags are dependant on each other and so if a question has tag 1 then it should also have tag 2 on it. This would require a major overhaul of the basics of how tags work, however, it would make the system a lot ...

Add support for tables This one seems like it would be quite useful and was popular. We also moved to CommonMark now and so it should be possible there. If not MathJax could be enabled for its usage (I believe it has tables but not entirely sure). Lastly, Arqade mentions support for tables also, so whilst this is a SE level change rather than SFF I think it ...

of our top franchises, only the comics franchises and Star Trek have had a work with a primary protagonist who was not white Heinlein had a primary protagonist who was not white before it was cool with the "I need to feel socially useful" white progressives who now want to seem all cool. In other words, there are definitely top franchises/authors on our ...
