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.

I can't see that the overlap would be of necessity strong. Of our top tags (story-ID, harry-potter, star-wars, lord-of-the-rings, star-trek, movie, and doctor-who), none fall clearly into mythology. Only a couple (marvel, via Thor and maybe some epic fantasy) would fall into scope over there. Sure, some of the stories may sound like fantasy, but that doesn't ...

Sci-Fi May have this 'problem', but it's definitely not the only site that has it. Arqade: Other than how to press buttons correctly, every other question on this site belongs in a GameFaq. Anime/Manga: The same 'problem' we have here. History: If we enacted this rule here, the only question would could ever ask is "where to find history?" Movies & ...

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, ...

This isn't a feature that can be implemented via a decision here. You'll need to raise it on the main meta site. For the record, I think that this is an irrelevance. These sorts of low quality worldbuilding questions are generally a result of people not reading the tour and FAQ before they decide to post their off-topic questions on our site rather than a ...

status-completed See: New Feature: Table Support 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
