I'm not colorblind, but these bubbles from the reputation summary / recent changes page are really pushing the envelope into "fugly". Could someone here have a word with the designers and see if they meant to enact this change?

Even yellow/purple or orange/blue is better for people that are colorblind if you really want to use contrasting / opposing colors for this...

red on green

This was my fault for assuming the text was white already on the other SE sites when adding this styling. Jin pushed a CSS update so that the text on these is now white everywhere, it should look much better now.

Edit - it looks MUCH better - so happy it was an oops (and a minor one at that.) Speedy fix FTW. enter image description here

  • Thanks Nick. I'll be tweaking the green to each site's proper green shade this weekend. For now, white text helps as a quick fix. – Jin Jun 18 '11 at 15:29
  • Very impressed by the speed of resolution. Thanks again to both of you, the apple site colors are very well done. Thanks @nick-craver and @jin – bmike Mod Jun 18 '11 at 16:30
