Changelog: New settings/ux tab

If you go to /settings/ux you will see a bunch of options that used to be in /settings/misc, now with more interactive visuals.

The upgrade from the "misc" area of settings is a commitment to keep up with the user experience configurations which should help everybody experience DEV on their own terms.

Thank you to to @link2twenty for proposing the theme selector and @johncurcio for building it!

I luv pink, but that site theme was just a bit too intense even for me!
I went back to the standard theme after just a couple of page views.

After trying out the pink color scheme, I hope that you might consider adding a scheme where we can pick the colors via a color picker and set our own unique colors for a theme.

A little off-topic, but I think a feature to mark all notifications as read would be very useful. Just like email. I'm currently drowning in notifications ๐ŸŒŠ

This is cool.
Just to be the 'what about' guy, I'd love if I could schedule a dark mode theme from say 6pm - 6am.

During the brighter day I do like the traditional light Dev.to theme.
