When you flag a post as "requires moderator attention", you get a box to enter a reason. On SuperUser, this box is pink, unlike the red on the other sites. As you type, the number of characters remaining counts down. The first warning level (orange shades, 59-30 characters remaining) is ugly and somewhat readable. After this, the red warning is just plain unreadable:

    A screenshot would be helpful to illustrate your point. – Geoffrey Chetwood Jul 15 '09 at 16:50

    Why would this be 'feature-request', and not 'bug'? Is a non-pink dialog a "feature"? – Axeman Jul 15 '09 at 22:57
  • @Axeman: I agree. I never asked for a non-pink dialog, just that the colors make the text unreadable. Whether changing the warning text color or the dialog color, "unreadable" = "visual bug" in my book... – lc Jul 16 '09 at 4:24
  • I've added the bug tag to the list. Oddly enough I didn't tag it "bug" to begin with so I could be the one to blame. Left the "feature-request" tag, and I'll let a moderator sort the rest out. – lc Jul 16 '09 at 4:26
  • Update: Not sure I'm a huge fan of the incidental white box (looks a little blotchy), but at least it's readable now. Thanks. – lc Jul 16 '09 at 18:03

I wish we could just get rid of the pink. Next thing you know there will be a pony overlay as a background image.

I feel like @wood was hungry when he designed SuperUser and was chewing on a box of Good & Plenty:

  • I like the pink, we just need to tweak some of the other colors (like the red) instead. – Kyle Cronin Jul 15 '09 at 17:23
  • Given the other bright colors, I would assume he was eating Bunny Mix M&Ms left over from Easter: 2.bp.blogspot.com/_mtOUTPEcj20/RggnSsc5gcI/AAAAAAAAAdI/… Those have been sitting out for months, Jeff! – Hilarious Comedy Pesto Jul 15 '09 at 17:27
