The "0 Answers" style on SuperUser looks horrid/out of place.

You know the one I'm talking about, the big burgundy box of badness.

one is not really the loneliest number, nor blue the saddest color

  • Now it's pink. Need a new alliteration... – Shog9 Jul 16 '09 at 14:12
  • putrid pink prose? – Joel Coehoorn Jul 16 '09 at 16:10

It's good that it's noticeable, but bad that it doesn't appear to fit well with the rest of the site. I'd prefer to see a lighter shade used, and used on the text and border rather than the background.

Oh, and round corners like the tags - then it'll only look like crap on IE...

  • I really like this design. – Martinho Fernandes Jul 15 '09 at 21:00
  • Agreed, this is very nice. – Ian Elliott Jul 15 '09 at 21:38

I disagree! I think questions without answers should look out of place. It's a community focused on asking and answering questions - no answers strikes me as something that should stand out.

  • Where is the community decision here? – Geoffrey Chetwood Jul 15 '09 at 20:22
  • It's ugly as sin, and that's a good thing ! – Shog9 Jul 15 '09 at 20:35
  • -I- disagree - you may not! I'd rather informative than ugly, I think. – Andy Mikula Jul 15 '09 at 21:16

On my monitor, it doesn't look black, it looks like a really deep burgundy.

Regardless, I think it could be made to stand out without clashing. I'd suggest trying something in the yellows.

    hmm... burgundy works. As long as you keep the alliteration ;) – Joel Coehoorn Jul 15 '09 at 20:32

Agreed: It's way too dark! Change the value (as in HSV) on the burgundy to be a little lighter.

    Or give it a white background and use the dark burgundy for the fore-color. – Joel Coehoorn Jul 15 '09 at 20:42

    Yes, I like that idea even better. I'd also swap the answer/unanswered colors: I think it makes more sense to use yellow for "unanswered" questions and green for "answered". – Pete Jul 15 '09 at 20:47
