    Stéphane, I freely admit that I'm using an outdated browser, which may be the problem, but I'm seeing little to no difference in the color of Q titles for unvisited/visited. Should I see a difference? I like having a color or bold/normal change so I can quickly scan for Qs that I have or haven't visited yet.

  • That is such an elitist design. Academia is not defined by institutional buildings.

    @user13107 I don't agree with either of your statements. 1) In many (western) countries, the majority of every year attends a university, so a campus is not elitist per se. 2) Arguably, it is; academia does overwhelmingly happen at physical universities. Also, the design should project some recognisable visualisation of the site topic which is not necessarily its definition (cf. Mathematics, Physics, ...)
