# URLs in the new look MSE [duplicate]

Can those who voted to close this as a duplicate please point me to a specific question or answer that flags this point to the StackExchange developers.

In the new look and feel for MSE, links look to me just like any other text. E.g., see the link to space filling curve in the answer I just posted to this question. Shouldn't links be highlighted in some way? (If memory serves, they were blue before the recent change to the look and feel. Underlining as here is even better, because it works for colour-blind people.)

Thanks to Daniel Fischer for pointing out that the highlighting is supposed to be there but in low contrast. Here is a screenshot of what I see. The words "space filling curve" are in a blue-black colour with so little blue that you can scarcely distinguish it from black. (And heaven help you, if you are colour-blind.)

It has been suggested that this question should be closed as a duplicate of Mathematics new site theme is live, but I don't wish it to be treated as such. because it would trash the useful input in the comments below and the other question does not cover the issue of accessibility for the colour-blind.

[On the basis of the proposed reason for closure, someone could post a question "What's wrong with MSE?" and that would kill all future debate.]

• On this site, the links are in orange, and are clearly visible. I don't much like the color choice, but at least I can see them. I'm over $70,$ and my eyesight isn't what it was. It seems like no thought was given to accessibility in the new design. – saulspatz Aug 9 '18 at 23:13
