Please considering changing into something which introduces contrast.

  • $\begingroup$ @KennyTM: The accepted color on meta is quite nice. I guess the difficulty with the main site is that the green of the text is also rather bright, leaving little room for the background to be darker without making the text unreadable. But FWIW, I like #2 or #3. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @KennyTM, to be honest, none of those! :) Something with character, like MO's #3b7a00 $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 1, 2010 at 18:30
  • $\begingroup$ @Mariano: i.imgur.com/jPmCR.png? :p Anyway, seems like you mean we should use "white-on-green" for accepted answer like Gaming. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Surely, the font should be white for that bg color! $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 1, 2010 at 18:42

    $\begingroup$ I don't understand why the site has so much text in subdued tones. $\endgroup$ Commented Nov 1, 2010 at 18:43

I have updated the accepted answer text/bg colors to match Beta theme's. Should be more readable than before.

  • $\begingroup$ The "accepted answer" background looks good to me now, but the text colour is slightly bluer than the "answered" text colour, and that seems odd. Perhaps keep the bg colour but make the text colour match the green of the "answered" text. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Rahul, we have tested the colors on several monitors, PC and Mac and they seem fine. I suggest you check your monitor's gamma setting. Are you on an old LCD monitor? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Jin: Oh, I wasn't saying it's too light or hard to read. I was just trying to point out that .answered {color: #209814;} and .answered-accepted {color: #418370;} still don't match. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Jin: Thanks... I hate to nag, but I was hoping you'd change it the other way around, like I had suggested in my first comment. But if you feel it's better this way, I won't object. $\endgroup$
