A new theme for MeFi: Modern

Today we're unveiling a new theme option for MetaFilter. Yes, it's a new design option for MetaFilter for the first time in over a decade, which we are dubbing the "Modern" theme. The new theme is strictly opt-in; no one is being forced to use it and the Classic and Plain-text themes remain as options, so your view of the site won't change unless you want it to. To try out the new theme, select it in your preferences. There is much to explain and show off in this new design and I'll do my best to describe all the thinking that went into the process below.

Bug with new titles/deleted posts?

I run the greasemonkey script that shows deleted posts on the front page, mainly for curiosity's sake. I've noticed this (screenshot) happening, when a post is deleted. Basically, the greasmonkey script shows the post that was deleted, with the title of the undeleted post immediately before the deleted post appearing as the deleted post's title. (Sorry if that's confusing; hopefully the screenshot explains this better.) I don't know if this is an issue with the greasemonkey script or with metafilter.

Bug with IRL alerts?

Bug? At last night's meetup in Hollywood, multiple attendees remarked that they did not get an IRL alert even though they've enabled it and have (sometimes) gotten alerts in the past. (More than half of the attendees showed because I memailed them about it.)

This post was deleted for the following reason: blank

When I load the front page, I can't see all these posts here. Greasemonkey is listing them as deleted, yet I can comment in them.Furthermore, it seems to be random, since some newer FPPs are visible.

But, it's my FAVORITE!

I can't seem to favorite comments or posts. I've tried to fave a couple of things today, and instead, it bounces me back up to the top of the page. When I refreshed the page, it seemed to hang on scripts.metafilter, and I briefly timed out when I logged out and logged back in. [more inside]

Weird Permalinks in the FAQ

I was reading the FAQ, and I clicked on the "permalink" link for a specific question thinking it would be a link (anchor or something) for just that question, but instead it led to this page. I think it happens with all the FAQs, not just this RSS one; they all go to metatalk threads. Thanks.

Top of the Blue looking strange.

Is the header on the blue looking strange to anyone else? On mine, the "New Post," "My Profile," "Preferences," "Recent Activity" and "Favorites" links are all smooshed together underneath the search box (not the tabbed links, just the text links). I'm viewing the site in IE, WinXP, and I just noticed the smooshed links within the last hour.

Mefi frontpage is blank in Opera 9.23

I'm using Opera (9.23, Windows NT 5.1; U; sv) and all I see at the Metafilter frontpage is nothing at all (image). Mefi works fine in IE. Whatever has caused this, it must have happened during the past 12 hours.
