coprime: an awesome lady stepping out of a boat (Default)

Hrmm, normally whenever I tweak my AO3 skin, I am like, "Oh yeah, baby, look at that [whatever I changed], so gorgeous." But not so much this time, and I am unsure if it's because I do not like what I changed in general or because I changed the color of something while doing it. (I found some CSS that made it so that the background color of relationship tags didn't also affect the background color of the surrounding spaces and tag separators. And then I changed the background color to something I thought I would like more.)

I'll give it a week or so, and if I am still side-eying things I suppose that means I should change it back.

I am the worst combination of technological simpleton and internet power user. I don't really know coding or javascript or CSS, but I want everything to work/look exactly how I want it to. I have apparently ignited a desire to make all of the internet look better since that's what I've been doing all last night and this morning/afternoon. I am getting better at creating frankencode though, so I guess that's a plus?

I have:
-gotten annoyed that I can no longer quickly look up a URL on Delicious (thus kicking everything off)
--attempted to modify the Pinboard URL look-up bookmarklet to work for Delicious
---created something that almost worked but not really
----found a bookmarklet made by someone else that actually works
-----successfully edited said bookmarklet so that it doesn't open in a new tab

-edited my webpage color zapping bookmarklet so it zaps things into colors that don't hurt my eyes
--with the caveat that I couldn't figure out how to get hexadecimal colors to work, just HTML color names

-decided to tackle AO3 after having been buoyed by these successes
--failed to find any already created userscripts that both did something I liked and worked
---looked at AO3's create skin page and skittered away in fear
----browsed all the public skins and found some that did things I liked but weren't just right
-----went back to the create skin page
------successfully combined the bits I liked, deleted the bits I didn't like, edited the colors, and even created a tiny bit

AO3 looks glorious now! )

I am so incredibly pleased with everything (but especially the AO3 skin because putting it all together was a lot of work for me) because now the internet feels a little bit more right.
