Voting colors on main site very difficult to distinguish
I have extremely light-sensitive eyes, to the point that I sometimes even need to wear sunglasses indoors. As a result, I have my monitor brightness set to absolute minimum. On this setting, it's extremely difficult to distinguish between "voted on this" vs "not voted on this." The ...
The box to enter a comment has a red border
Screenshot from meta:
This makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong. I think the blue highlight is enough, similar to how it looks when editing an answer.
Scrollbars appear to the right of Mathjax $$-style blocks

If many tags are added to a question, tags scroll away and never come back
If too many tags are added to a question to fit in the tag box, the tags start moving away to the left, rendering them unreachable:
Moreover, if the visible tags are deleted, the tags that moved away ...
Search bar font shrinks unnecessarily
As I shrink the horizontal width of the window, when the right navigation bar is removed the font size of the text in the search bar changes abruptly, without the size of the search box itself changing. It goes from this:
and as far as I can tell there's no reason for the font size to change at ...
The problem is in line 1 of all.css. (Admittedly, this information might be more helpful if the file had been created by someone with a functioning return key.)
More specifically, the problem is caused by this rule starting at character 31,193:

Meta site colors low contrast
The meta label on the meta site has very low contrast which makes it difficult to read in glare or for those who have harder time seeing low-contrast text. Also it feels unnatural with "meta" being so close to the other text, not sure if by design but 16px seems to make everything feel more natural.
White indentation blocks in the post editor tips
Again, this might be intentional. But even if it is, it gives the feeling that it's a rendering bug -- and doesn't help counting the number of spaces anyway.

"Global" left nav hiding does not apply to sites not joined
I have hidden the left nav in my preferences on PPCG. (As I need a large font for my eyes, it is (so far) the only issue with the new theme I've found unacceptable.) This setting is supposed to be global, and indeed seems to work ...
Border-radius on badge progress bar
Is the top-right/bottom-right border radius on the badge progress bar intentional, or is it accidental? It does look weird to me.
(I will however delete this post if it is intentional, as it is not the right place to talk about looks & feels.)
Tags search page is missing distinguishing features
Tag synonyms are indistinguishable from tags with no usage guidelines and 0-1 answers. Moreover, tags with 0 answers are indistinguishable from tags with 1 answer. On this page, compare anagrams, array and birthday-problem. anagrams is a synonym for the very popular tag permutations. array has no questions ...
I have poor eyesight, and as a result I browse Stack Exchange sites at 150% zoom level in Chrome. On most sites, I see the main content to the left, and to the right is useful stuff such as related questions, "featured on meta" and the hot network questions.
In this new theme, because of my zoom level, all that stuff is pushed to the ...
Sites only get custom designs, UI elements, etc. after graduation. The community typically has very little influence on this, and it is done by a professional designer at Stack Exchange.
However, once the design is complete, users are asked to give feedback and suggest improvements. For an example of this process, see Academia.SE's site design meta post.
status-planned This is a temporary artifact due to responsive NOT being ready for all pages. So, on a smaller viewport (like a tablet) the left nav will auto hide on some pages (responsive ones) but not others (non-responsive ones). This will be fully addressed when we make all pages responsive, but that will take some time.
There is a curious inconsistency ...
Currently we still recommend you use the mobile view on small screen devices. There is a good bit of work for us to do to make the responsive pages work well on mobile. That work is planned but we don't have a firm schedule at this time.

MathJax delimiters and linefeeds issue
I'm not sure whether this bug was introduced with the new version, but I noticed that adding linefeeds after or before MathJax delimiters breaks the rendering, at least while editing. (See this revision for the correct rendering without ...
Order questions keyboard shortcut doesn't do anything
G Q goes to https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/questions as usual.
After that, however, O A does not "sort by active". ? offers no option to "order questions" at all.
Left bar whitespace right of text doesn't go away
As I shrink the horizontal window size, various page elements are removed. However, at no point is the whitespace to the right of the left navigation text removed, up until the point where the left navigation bar is removed.

On the scoring of PHP and Perl
J B's post is commonly linked back to in defense of a particular scoring, most often for Perl. Although I agree with his post in large part, there are a couple points that I am not in complete agreement with, or that I believe were not adequately addressed.

Misleading mouse cursor over the 'Next badge' element
Although the 'Next badge' element is clickable, the mouse cursor is set to either default or text.
All other badge elements set the mouse cursor to pointer when hovered over.

AFAICT, there is nothing special about this from a licensing point of view.
(But I am not a lawyer and I am not your lawyer).
You always have the rights to relicensis your works to yourself, so you can use that to make code-challenges from it.
You are basically free to use what ever license you want.
I personally suggest MIT.
It is common,
