What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

It appears that the background of the meta logo doesn't match the background colour used for the rest of the page -- would it be possible to bring these in line?


According to the eyedropper in Photoshop, the meta logo background is #FEFEFE, whilst the page background is #FFFFFF.

This is as about as subtle a difference as there could be, and it possibly is only noticeable to:

  • People using TFTs, where viewing at "odd" angles, gives an artificial boost to contrast
  • People using screens calibrated with colourimeters
  • People that have good eyesight (possibly might need "better than average").

Lay down a screenshot? – random Jul 30 '09 at 15:40
Take a photo of it, post it on Flickr and then tweet it back for all to compare – random Jul 30 '09 at 15:49
The SO logo is OK, as is the SU one. – ChrisF Jul 30 '09 at 20:10

It looks fine on my computer, but I can kind-of see the outline of the logo.

So if you can see the outline, there must be a difference, which is what I'm trying to point out :) – Rowland Shaw Jul 30 '09 at 15:49

Looks fine in Chrome

Edit: Actually, I'm sure that's a function of my LCDs. As Rowland points out, the image shows a background of #FEFEFE (off white) and the page background is set to #FFFFFF (pure white).

Just checked with a screenshot in Photoshop, and it also gives a difference between #FEFEFE and #FFFFFF – Rowland Shaw Jul 30 '09 at 19:58
