Best color palette for a sober, elegant look and feel

I am building a web app whose target audience will be musicians in general but more specifically classical musicians. So in my limited, more accurately nonexistent, knowledge of user experience and use of colors (I am a software developer); to give it an elegant, sort of intellectual look and feel I thought it would be a good idea to go with the “controversial” dark theme.

Now my biggest problem is that I have no idea which colors to use for text, buttons, links and such, that will make sense and work harmoniously together with the dark background.

In a nutshell the application is just a collection of cards that represent the music pieces the user knows and the colors I am using so far are the following:

Body Background: #2E2E2E
Body text: #FFF8DC

hr: #949494

Navigation bar background: #343a40
Navigation bar text/links: white with 0.5 opacity

Music piece card background: #1E1E1E
Music piece card text: #FFF8DC

Primary buttons: #5EB4CC
Secondary buttons: #545b62

Links: haven’t been able to make up my mind yet.

Like I said options for the text, buttons and links colors are the main concern, that being said, if there are better options for the whole color palette to give the application that feeling of elegance and intellectual look I definitely appreciate your insight and expertise.

Thank you.

How can I help our ranger feel special about her beast companion?

I am not DM, just a player. In our party of newbies we have a (PHB) ranger who just recently got her beast companion (a panther if you’re curious). The problem is our party also found a cat with wings – a tressym – and it was taken in by our bard. (Technically, it is part of a quest and meant to be returned to its rightful owner, but I doubt our party will actually do that.) The DM didn’t really give her control over it; the bard just said something like, “I take the cat and put it in my backpack,” and so now I guess it’s hers.

After the session, the ranger confided in me that she didn’t feel very special about having her own animal if other people are going to get them too. Now we’re only level 4 and she only had her panther for 1 session that had 2 very quick fights so there hasn’t been a lot of time to experiment and play with the panther. I know it will get more powerful and just better as time goes on but I’m wondering how I can convince her.

I guess I should mention that the ranger in question is also my wife so I really don’t want her to feel sad about her panther.

How can I help our ranger feel special about her beast companion?

Site Theme Not Updating Correctly Via Look and Feel

This question is in regards to SharePoint 2010. It would appear that when a page renders under a site using the uncustomized v4.master we get the following code:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_layouts/1033/styles/controls.css?rev=iaQ4I0LJDsWyKK5jS2ed3g%3D%3D"/> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_catalogs/theme/Themed/8411CE2A/controls-6E924A6.css?ctag=19"/> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_catalogs/theme/Themed/8411CE2A/search-7E1AFF02.css?ctag=19"/> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_catalogs/theme/Themed/8411CE2A/wiki-ECF524AA.css?ctag=19"/> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_styles/corev4.css"/> 

Updating the Site’s theme via Site Actions | Site Settings | Look and Feel | Site Theme doesn’t appear to work any longer. While there are no errors presented, the actual change does not get reflected on the site. Other than that theme settings page showing the current theme as the newly selected one there is no visual change.

I suspect this has to do with that bottom line using the /_styles/corev4.css. Other sites (using the same v4.master) don’t have this problem. And the code on those sites is as follows:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_layouts/1033/styles/controls.css?rev=iaQ4I0LJDsWyKK5jS2ed3g%3D%3D"/> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_catalogs/theme/Themed/8411CE2A/controls-6E924A6.css?ctag=12"/> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_catalogs/theme/Themed/8411CE2A/search-7E1AFF02.css?ctag=12"/> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_catalogs/theme/Themed/8411CE2A/wiki-ECF524AA.css?ctag=12"/> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/_catalogs/theme/Themed/8411CE2A/corev4-8A0ABD2F.css?ctag=12"/> 

Notice the difference? The bottom line appears to be using the CSS located in the auto-generated folder correctly.

Now for my question. How can I get the site back to using the auto-generated theme instead of that root corev4.css file found in the Hive? This is causing us to not be able to update our Site theme now.

My GM is creating situations that I feel are ruining my experience

That does sound a bit harsh, but let me explain.

We have been gaming for a few years now in this group. We do have fun, but lately I have been noticing a recurring factor that is impacting on my experience as a player. Basically, they appear to be creating situations that will constantly make the game an uphill struggle.

For example, the GM may come up with a scenario, then leave that as a cliff-hanger, giving us a bit of time to come up with a plan of attack, to talk about over chat for the coming week. He is a part of the chat group; we don’t want to be rude.

However, when we do come up with what we feel is a good plan, the situation always has a twist or something that makes everything go awry, leaving us to abandon the plan, and handle the situation as it unfolds.

Another recurring issue is that the GM will throw sticks into the spokes of our progress in situations that are out of our control. A recent example of this is we were attempting to extract information from a captive. They were not cooperating when we used persuasion, but before we could attempt to use Intimidation, we were engaged in combat. By the time we were able to return, the captive had killed itself with a cyanide pill, leaving us stranded.

We have also been the victim of situational encounters multiple times, where one of us will be forced to fight a monster, simply because the rest of us could not make it to help, or were singled out.

At this point I am beginning to feel that I should just stop contributing, so that my plans cannot be used against me.

On top of all of this, I am also having issues with levelling – I will level my PC, only to again be overpowered by new, and sometimes recurring enemies. This in particular is causing a bit of a “treadmill effect”.

As a player, I want to talk to my GM about handling this issue. I understand that he wants to create challenging scenarios for us, but at this point, like I said, it’s a constant uphill struggle. What suggestions might I be able to provide in order to reach a common ground between us?

Why does it feel like web development is a hodgepodge of frameworks and plugins? Where do I even start?

sorry for the “click-baity” title.

I am currently a Junior back-end developer, I write Java and Scala and I love it.

I really want to get into web-development but it seems like every time I look up some guide on web development it is really just a guide for a specific Framework, I totally understand that the way the web has evolved over the years has forced developers into more efficient and dynamic ways of building web applications, but as a beginner it is really frustrating not even knowing where to start.

If I’m following a Flask guide it feels like I’m learning Flask, not web development, and if I was going to switch to Angular I could maybe use 1% of the Flask skills I acquired.

I don’t want to learn Bootstrap, Vue or Django.

I want to learn web development.

Sorry for this being more of a rant (which I’m hoping at least in part made sense) than an actual question but I’m hoping someone can help me see the light.
