All beta sites have the same colour scheme. I think this question has been asked before on meta.se but I don't think there was any appetite to change it. You can change it yourself, there are user ...

How can we best customize our "price-shopping" close reason, and clarify how to use it?

My suggestion. Recommendations for what item to purchase are off-topic; questions about what features one should look for are on-topic. Questions asking about the price of an item are also off topic ...

Do we want a post notice for questions where people are using equipment in ways that are clearly incorrect or dangerous?

I don't think we need a post notice. The Q&A process already has all the neccesary tools. If the question is outright dangerous in itself (e.g. asking for medication "recommendations"), it is ...

Should/can we make it more obvious to new users that we don't want shopping questions or certain types of travel questions?

People who are new at anything need to be educated or trained. Giving them something to read is merely a start, and a not very effective start if it is boring, as the user guides on SE are. (Has ...
