@Niharika can I assign this to you? Or can you just claim it?

@Samwilson So, this sounds like a plan for a more graceful fail. Which is good.

I've removed this from the Description and am putting this here to record that it was reported and that @alexhollender fixed it, as far as I can see.
Image flash when click for enlargemnt
When you click to expand an image, there’s a flash of an inverted image while the bigger image is loading.
- The flash is even more noticeable for the black and white image on this page.

@Samwilson, also, are there any other E-Book tasks that you can write up out of this investigation? Or is the one you mention basically a precursor to doing the investigation?

@alexhollender talking to @Mooeypoo again, she has revised her opinion about whether a popup/menu or toggle switch is a good way to go. We are now back to a strong opinion that the best option here will be a simple link that switches depending on what mode you're in, like so:
@alexhollender I just spotted yet another type of link style that we should go ahead and control. External (off-wiki) links are now showing up as a light pink color. In the default mode, it looks like they are a slightly different blue from the normal link blue, but it's so subtle I imagine it's not on purpose. So I would imagine they should just be styled in our normal link color. (They are differentiated, of course, but the off-wiki arrow icon when appropriate.)
I've removed the issue below from the Description. I'm just making a note here to record that this was an issue, but that we've solved it.
Hi @alexhollender, I've been thinking of this as something you were working on, but just realized I didn't assign it to you. So I just did. I also renamed it, to make it more clear that this is not just a holding tank for stuff we've observed, but an "investigation" ticket. Please look into these issues and either:
Embedded (mapframe) maps are reversed.
I added kartographer maps as an exclusion with https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Diff/895354313. Hope this is okay!

I'm moving this report down to the discussions area because a) I don't know who reported it (this section names writers) and b) I don't see the problem. So if you reported the "Image overlay" problem, please describe what you're seeing. Thanks.
@jmatazzoni unfortunately a lot of the colors end up needing to be bright when placed on a black background in order to achieve a minimum of AA WCAG compliance. The color you've used int he mock ups above (#BA504F) doesn't have a high enough contrast ratio on true black (#000)
I need to formulate an official stand on which skins we are going to support (I've put it on the Agenda for standup). I know there's interest in Timeless, so I had a look at that with the new CSS. The colors all seem to work fine in Timeless. But I do spot one layout issue: on page the main page title gets cut off at the top by the Timeless header. See screenshot. @alexhollender is there an easy fix for this?
@alexhollender, I'm looking at the Dark Mode redlink color as of May 1. I like that it is more recognizably "red" now. Thanks. But when I look at a page with redlinks, they are the thing that stands out most on the page. See screenshot.

On a related note, @MusikAnimal @jmatazzoni have we thought at all about introducing some kind of hook/media-query that template editors could use in order to define dark-mode versions for their templates via template styles? I'm not sure how this would work technically, but I imagine it would be a worthwhile investment in that it would allow editors the ability to improve all of the individual elements that we are intentionally not going to touch. @Jdlrobson for any additional opinions.
