I find it offensive: squarely in the baby-poo, vomit, etc category.

Edit: I'm referring to the background of the "alert" bar as well as the "welcome" box for not-logged-in users.

  • D'oh! I was referring to the old "orange" captcha for the blog. Though I actually did try "mustard" to see if it worked. Ha ha only serious, I guess.

  • Yeah, when I saw superuser I was a bit jealous that SO wasn't styled this way (since I'll probably be on SO the most out of the three sites).

I see mostly blue.

I like blue.


I think the SuperUser colours are way better than Serverfault or Meta. Ok, Jeff hates Meta, so it gets the ugly scheme. Fine, I can deal with that. But Serverfault... blech. SuperUser has a nice theme IMO.


I like it better than the gray Meta look...

    I think the gray meta rocks... I guess tastes are very different in this small world :)

Pretty much duplicate of Thoughts on the new superuser logo and theme?.

To answer your question, I think the colour scheme garish, even hideous.


Looks medieval. Try white on white.


I really don't like the bubbles around the tag names. It makes them stand out too much, IMO.


There is one drawback with a blue scheme. Older people, discriminating myself here by giving a specific age boundry at about 40-45, tend to have difficulties distinguishing different shades of blue.


You probably mean for questions with accepted answer. I find nothing "offensive" about that color.
