# The “accepted” color is too light

Please considering changing into something which introduces contrast.

• Which contrast you do want? (the first one is the current color) i.imgur.com/I3i2d.png – kennytm Nov 1 '10 at 15:50
• @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. – Rahul Nov 1 '10 at 18:15
• @KennyTM, to be honest, none of those! :) Something with character, like MO's #3b7a00 – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Nov 1 '10 at 18:30
• @Mariano: i.imgur.com/jPmCR.png? :p Anyway, seems like you mean we should use "white-on-green" for accepted answer like Gaming. – kennytm Nov 1 '10 at 18:37
• Surely, the font should be white for that bg color! – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Nov 1 '10 at 18:42
• I don't understand why the site has so much text in subdued tones. – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Nov 1 '10 at 18:43
• I mocked up Mariano's suggestion, and I like it: i.imgur.com/FtjCr.png – Rahul Nov 1 '10 at 19:03

• @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. – Rahul Nov 17 '10 at 17:52
