Editor panel contrast
My problem is the following: When I compose a new topic or post, and the editor panel covers part of the page, it's hard to see its edge, because everything is white.
The most simple solution would be to add a thin border, instead of this barely visible box shadow, but I think it would look much better to add a semi-transparent overlay behind the editor panel. Just like the one, which appears when you click on the "Compose" link in the text field.
Yeah, the site is being faded. But some people still like to read text above the editor, so fading isn't really a good option. A border or a more prominent boxshadow is more reasonable.
I guess there is a balance between contrast and readability. With this overlay, the text is still readable.
