Is there any reason why beta sites have blue lines over solid white in their icon backgrounds? It looks jarring when placed next to other site icons that have a transparent background.

Area51 also has this problem. What is wrong with a big outlined 51?

It's especially noticable on non-white flair.

All beta sites have the "sketchy" theme which includes the "shaded" text and the "blueprint" background...but I see your point. –  tombull89 Oct 21 '11 at 11:07
@tombull89 I think it looks fine on the actual site, just not the logos. –  Pubby Oct 21 '11 at 11:08
-1 I like the way it is now, it means I can see the icon on my bookmarks toolbar regardless of my browser theme. –  staticbeast Oct 21 '11 at 11:27
@staticbeast Perhaps a strong outline then? –  Pubby Oct 21 '11 at 11:40
