Dark Mode High Contrast Feedback + Issues

To start with, I really enjoy the new dark mode high contrast theme. It’s much higher contrast without feeling over the top, and already after just a few minutes it feels pretty normal.

That being said, I’ve noticed a few small issues.

Filter reset button has low contrast

Suprisingly, this doesn’t get flagged by lighthouse, even though I don’t think it’s within contrast guidelines.

Active: Much better

Profile photos have a noticably pixelated border

This might be because I’m on a 2K screen, but I was noticing a rough border (and also minor chromatic abberation) with the stroke around profile images.

That’s all I’ve noticed so far, but I’ll add to this thread if I continue to find things.

Just adding to the thread:

docs.github.com has a dark background in “Dark default” and “Dark dimmed” but a white background in “Dark high contrast.”

Thanks for reporting these @mxmeinhold! I’ve taken these back to the team to get fixed and/or investigated further.

This is definitely a mistake @CanterJam - thanks for sharing!
