The past few days, I’ve noticed that the question tags on the main site are now bolded; is there any way to revert them back to normal? (Not the end of the world, but I find it distracting more than anything else.)

    $\begingroup$ More seriously, I suspect it's just one of the endless tweaks to the visuals that SE does. I think here on MO it would be a matter of having a custom user script, I doubt you could go to meta.stackexchange.com, raise a question, and see it change back. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Follow the action at meta.stackexchange.com/questions/400086/…, where someone already pointed it out $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The tag (design) seems to be suitable here. Maybe (tags), too? $\endgroup$ Commented May 22 at 3:21
  • $\begingroup$ @MartinSleziak Added, thanks as always Martin. And thank you for the updates David; I agree that my chances over at meta se are slim to none, cest la vie. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It could also be something buggy (something like that happened back in 2016, again with boldface tags). Certainly it's been brought to attention since it seems to be network-wide. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @ToddTrimble Clearly, the change was intentional - from David Roberts' link you can get to: Seeking feedback on tag colors update. I have to admit that I did not notice that announcement at the time - despite the fact that it was featured. $\endgroup$ Commented May 22 at 10:46

I use the following piece of CSS code

.s-tag  {
  font-weight: normal !important;

to revert the tags back to normal.
