Excellent, I was hoping someone would come along and take up the gauntlet.

Looks good, I've added this to mine.

LI.ipsPagination_pageJump > *{
        font-weight: bold !important;  
}

Makes the page jumper bold. Looks ok, havent seen any other elements effected yet. Thanks for sharing :)

I was trying to move around some other elements but I dont know enough about css to keep the layout from coughing up a hairball every time I mess with it...

DIV.ipsComment_meta.ipsType_light {
    color: white;
    background-color: #3c6994;
    font-weight: bold;
    position: relative;
    left: -15px;
    margin-right: -15px;
    padding-left: 15px;
}

A cleaner way to modify the post "header" (posted date etc.). Also makes it stretch to both sides of the post area. Note that I have used a different background color.

I would advise against modifying P.ipsType_reset, it is used in various places (I noticed it changed some text in activity stream page).

DIV.ipsType_richText>P {
    -webkit-margin-before: 0.5em;
    -webkit-margin-after: 0.5em;
}
DIV.ipsType_normal.ipsType_richText {
    line-height: 1.5;
}

Reduce spacing around paragraphs and lines, tweak to your liking. -webkit-margin-before/after is specific to WebKit based browsers, use margin-top/bottom elsewhere.

My usual way to view the forum was a list of all threads that changed since my last visit. This last can be configured as an activity stream, but my screen now shows about a quarter of the information it showed before. Is there a better way to stay up to date?

A bonus would be to restrict the search to a subset of the forums. Still, I'd already be happy to get the old information density back.

cool, thanks. also I noted that this needs changed too. Remove , LI.ipsType_light some unintended elements are changed because of this.

UL.cAuthorPane_info.ipsList_reset{
    color: white;
    font-weight: bold;
}

 

Just noticed this thread http://forum.kerbalspaceprogram.com/index.php?/topic/126808-made-a-user-style-to-increase-forum-contrast-and-available-space/

So, I'm thinking further style changes would be best served moved there. Keeps things tidy and all in one place.

The information density can be improved by switching to "Condensed view" by clicking this icon:

Just passing by, but i m a bit "amused/worried/genuinely interested" with the new drag and drop functionalities, interesting sure but for now a little bit messy allowing to copy paste some weird things all around, i m curious to see how this one will get polished/enhanced medium term with some specific authorization/restriction on some part of the forum GUI, also not a fan a mouse wheel locked while drag and dropping stuff ...

I have taken Arcwolf's initial stylish script (available in the Welcome thread 24 hours ago) and done some colorizing. While the colors will not appeal to all (the page button bar colors do not appeal to me, even!), I have found most of the knobs to get the forum to not be an eyesore for me. Also, it's a disorganized mess, sorry (my first time messing with CSS).
 

And yes, I like light text on dark backgrounds :)

Good news! Some formatting BBcode is still functional! Examples below:

bold, underline, italics. using [ b ] [ i ] [ u ] (without spaces)

Formatting with BBcode!

Size, and color still work too! Using [ size=<number> ] and [ color = 'red' or hex value ]

Big text!
Red Text!

 

And finally, lists work too. These are the only ones I've tried. All of these get converted to WYSIWYG upon posting, so when you edit they will still be formatted and the BBcode will be gone. But you can still use BBcode for premade posts!

Copy-paste of quotes does not work in Chrome, but does work in IE 10/11 and Edge. Haven't tested other browsers.

Should I add this to the OP?

I don't think you can turn that off.

Yes:
Click on "search," then the drop-down to the left of search, click the "Advanced search" the "+search by tags."

I don't think so, but I'll try to find out.

Strange, but it may not merit addition to the OP.

A quicker way to do this is to click the magnifying glass icon on the search bar with no terms entered, that will bring you directly to the Advanced Search page. One third as many clicks!

Probably on mobile, that element turns into three horizontal bars on smaller screens, with different functionality (try making your browser window narrower and you'll see).

Oh, that makes sense.  I never browse the forums on mobile, so that makes sense.  I'll add a disclaimer on the OP.

Apparently clicking on the time underneath a poster's icon (on the home screen) takes you to the last post.
