The transition between the main center pane and the darker header and sidebars is visually jarring, and looks like someone copy+pasted a white box on top of something else. The old theme uses a dark-...

Can we make the dice bot more accessible?

The Role-Playing Games title image looks blurry because of the boarder, almost as if the image was badly scaled up. Just blow up the image 300% and see.
