Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Loving the discussion. As the main person responsible for the design I wanted to share my thinking to help inform some further discussions.

The biggest thing for this redesign was to focus on the few things that are really important to those of us who started and are maintaining Codidact and also (more importantly) the communities themselves, of which you are all a part of.

Our biggest focus for the design were:

- focus on keeping the quality of questions high
- maximizing customization of instances without compromising the aesthetic of the site
- Adding more consideration to the weightings and what makes up a post in the post list
- Creating space and increasing font sizes to aid legibility (not everyone can see 8px fonts). This will include a move to other design decisions that make the sites more accessible
- optimizing for mobile without compromising desktop
- Using color more consistently but not everywhere

Not all of the features are fully baked yet, we are simply providing some initial ideas and we are hoping to spark conversation with you so that we can ideate and improve these features when we come around to focusing on them (sidebar and filters for eg.).

The more you communicate with us - and the more you vote for things on this page that are important to you, the easier it is for us to make the right decisions that impact the most amount of users in a positive way.

Thanks for being so awesome Codidact communities :)
