# Why are the vote counts for comments colored sometimes?

Pardon me if this is a silly question, but I have noticed that the little number displaying the number of votes on each comment is sometimes colored. I'm guessing the color is based on the number of votes, but is there a specific rule for this?

• Ideally, such an experiment would consist of 255 comments, all consisting of a single natural number, followed by ${}{}{}$. Then, each comment would be voted to the target natural number. You can't do this with just "normal" comments, because overshooting would be too easy. – apnorton May 8 '14 at 15:16
