    UnDeserved: FiM/EqG's terrible moral

    I watched entirely too much pony this morning. It got me thinking.

    EqG 1: Sunset Shimmer not granted higher power by Celestia, takes Element of Magic, becomes demon.
    2(RR): Sirens not granted magic by default, must take it, are demonized for their acts. (weakest version)

    Explaining Pinkie Sense: Pwny Pony Pinkie, Brainhacker Extraordinaire

    So I've produced several (mostly scientifically-worthless but possibly making for good stories) hypotheses here:
    1. Pinkie's social powers and memory derive from memory-hacking everypony she meets. Ponies, specifically.
    1b. This is pid (pony ID) based, so pool clones do not benefit; this is whgat Pinkie actually acts like without her mental powerup.

Stylish: Original Color Genre Tags · 7:09am Jun 6th, 2017

edit: The genres have new colors site-side now. "AU, crossover, EqG, tragedy, sad, human, mystery, thriller, second person, [slice-of-life,] and sci-fi" all still have blue.

This script is useful for if you want to change them to something else, or still want those un-colored genres to 'pop'. Say, if you wanted to make all tags you disliked black.

So I was thinking maybe I could fix the other disliked UI change while I was at it. Here you go:versicolor tags, using the old colors and borders (ripped from the New Story page…and pre-emptively re-applied thereto).
You may also be interested in re-greening the navbar (and shrinking, and removing the new allcaps) or DiscoPanda84’s Removing that rounded boundary.

Thanks for doing this :twilightsmile:

I’m afraid I have to be the person asking the horrible (but probably expected) question - how does one take the script from this post and apply it to the site? Knowing nothing about coding and having never heard of Stylish before, that is.

Am I right in guessing I’d need to install a Chrome extension into which scripts could be pasted?

If you’d be able to give a few sentences of guidance, or point me in the direction to start googling, that’d be very much appreciated, or I’m a bit lost. Thanks! :pinkiehappy:

...Sorry, I should have made more effort to sort it out myself before asking :facehoof: Got it all working now.

(If anyone is unsure, download and install an extension called Stylish, go to their userstyles site, create a new style, paste the code into the script box and make up a name and description. Then install it.

Thanks very much, Cursed Quill! :pinkiehappy:

Yeah, Stylish. Also for Firefox (which is what I tested it on.)

Only some of the original colors are restored, not all of them; AU, crossover, EqG, tragedy, sad, human, mystery, thriller, second person, and sci-fi are still the blue color on my end. :rainbowhuh:

Yup. (Slice-of-life, too.) Updated header note to say so.

4562622
Slice of life was blue to begin with (and I think it looks to be a similar shade), so that one is okay.

Thank you very much for this!

I'm posting this all over so more people can see it.

Spread it around.
