Daily Reports Chatter

If it's germane, yet doesn't fit into another category, it can go here.

I don't use daily reports that much, so don't postpone the switchover based on this or anything, but: I find it a little hard to keep track of how all the various information is encoded in the Constellation page, and would find a key of some sort helpful.

Like -- there's "grayed out" and "bolded" and "new!" and "arrow", and if I stop and think about it I can figure out what each of those means, but it takes some process-of-elimination; and I suspect for a new person it has to be much worse.

Similarly, I can't reliably tell a line of bolded text from a line of regular text, if it's a whole line and there's no direct contrast; I'd really prefer that not be used to encode information.

Presumably it would be fine as long there is a redundant encoding which is more visible than the font weight?

Yeah, that should be fine.

Perhaps the default theme should not have such a dark background, to improve contrast and therefore easier reading/scanning.

Enh. Low contrast is probably contributing, but I like Starry Dark. And higher contrast themes give some people headaches.

I don't know if this is intended behavior, but on the Constellation daily report, "never opened" status seems to overrule "hidden" status, such that a hidden thread doesn't gray out properly until I open it once (and then immediately does). This seems mildly suboptimal.

Looks like a bug; attempted a fix, lmk.

I have exams coming up so if the reports stop without us having addressed all the issues it'll be because I got fed up of having extra workload while doing exams.
