Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

On Super User, a post that uses the blockquote markup displays a graphic "bar" on the left edge of text. It is really useful when trying to display a quote within a quote. Can it be implemented on the other services (SO, SF, Meta)?

I don't quite think that is an accurate dupe call. rcar is specifically looking for the same design (maybe not color) on the other sites, not just an increase contrast on the blockquote box (which has been requested numerous times) – TheTXI Jul 30 '09 at 14:12

Although the SU blockquote can be a tad jarring at first, I quickly grew to like it because it was the very first time that a blockquote was readily visible on every computer I use (sometimes it's too late while on others I can see them).

I would have no problem if it got emulated on all the other sites as well.

I'm strongly in favor of this, if only to see what sorts of things I can draw with it.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the code blocks and blockquotes of our lives... – random Jul 30 '09 at 14:16
