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

My questions often generate a lot of comments. And it is difficult to say whats going on for users who just want an answer and not to read through pages of debates.

I think that if the OP comments will be of slightly different colour (say very light green background or something) this might give better and more efficient understanding of what is going on there.

Er, this is already the case.

OK I meant - the background of the comment not just user name... but thanks – Boppity Bop Jun 17 '12 at 10:09
@bobb that would be super obnoxious, so if that's your request I am going to decline it. Sorry. – Jeff Atwood Jun 17 '12 at 10:09
nothing to be sorry of.. i am just asking.. thanks for giving it a thought anyway – Boppity Bop Jun 17 '12 at 11:04
Am I the only person who thinks this box is hard to see on some sites? ProgSE, for example? – John Jun 17 '12 at 12:27
@John no you're not the only who thinks so. User name coloring in comments at Programmers looks laughable to me - in Windows 7 and XP, in Firefox and in IE – gnat Jun 17 '12 at 16:36
@gnat Yep, that's exactly what I see in Chromium on Ubuntu. – John Jun 17 '12 at 17:19
