There are a wide of colors in useful comments votes:

Gray, Orange, Red, and Brown.

I know gray colors. all of the comments that have received a little up-votes have gray colors in their number of up-votes. in general, gray color represents little.

But I have no idea about other colors. for instance, I have seen a comment with 8 up-votes; another one with 31 up-votes and another one with 21.

the first one had a dark brown color. the second had an orange one and the third had a red tone.

If we assume the color intensifies with the up-votes increase, that 31 times up-voted comment should've had dark brown color and below it red and orange respectively.

So why is that completely different?

    $\begingroup$ These old answers on Meta Stack Exchange are most likely already outdated (as there were big changes on the site since then). They still might be useful to indicate what this question is supposed to be about. (Although I certainly agree that a screenshot would improve the question.) Here are the links, possibly you can find other related posts: What's the deal with color-coding of comment votes? and How is the color for the upvote count on comments calculated? $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Apr 7 at 17:05

    $\begingroup$ AFAIK First is light gray then they turn into brown, then into light brown (near to orange-red) and finally turn into a lighter orange. The light orange is the maximum. $\endgroup$ – allesia_b Apr 7 at 21:02
