Man that JasonCarswell guy sure does like to tweak the CSS of that one obscure sub.

/u/JasonCarswell is a graphic designer. It's not surprising.

Which sub are you talking about?

Actually there are several of them. They all look really nice! I was just surprised to find pages of the modlogs filled with one thing.

It's a little embarrassing, I'm naked, like you guys caught me in the shower...

That's me tweaking. That's how I learned how to adjust the CSS code by trial and error. One step back two steps forward.

I glad it's transparent. Everyone will know when I block you (if they can get passed all my tweaking).

There is a preview button for the CSS, but it's a little bit useless, so I see why you're constantly saving it to check that you're not breaking stuff. Might I recommend an add-on like Stylus?

Imo the best way to try out new small CSS changes is to use your browser's "inspect" feature (on chrome it's right-click, inspect) and it opens up all the CSS in an panel on the right. Then you can make whatever additions and changes to the CSS and it'll show you how it renders, on the fly. That's how I test out new CSS before I actually change the code

I just looked. I never tried any of that editing because I didn't know how accurate it would be beyond the page. Also, I don't know what 66.6% of that stuff is, or more.

I never used the preview button because I never expected folks to be digging through my dirty laundry. You won't find any gems there.

I'll check out Stylus.

/u/magnora7's suggestion of using your browser's Style Editor is better for most cases; Stylus is a way of applying stylesheets to arbitrary websites and isn't particularly well-suited to this task.

Thanks for warning me. I had it in my DDG but hadn't delved yet.

Don't feel guilty about 10,000 edits. I think everyone is trying to help you boost your CSS skills, but no pressure. The mod logs have filtering in place to not show all ya CSS edits.

Is it only 10K? I don't feel guilty. Just exposed for some reason. Maybe excessive? I dunno why. A lot of those are just subtle colour shifts on one thing.

That's neat too. I'll have to check that feature out.
