    ✨ Hacker News, but refined — Interface tweaks and features to make the HN experience better

    Project mention: Why is text of sumissions in low-contrast grey on HN? | | 2023-10-18

    It seems that HN has a lot of anti-user features for the sake of it. Perhaps the rationale for graying out self posts is to make them not stand out (so that the post from OP doesn't get any undue advantage over the comments), but it's just an accessibility nightmare. It's as if people with poor eyesight were not welcome here.

    I use Refined Hacker News which alleviates some pain points, but unfortunately it doesn't fix this issue.
