Since the orange dialog are gone, we now have red dialog instead for (almost) everything (except the blue one I guess).

I was wondering why the dialog is red when we just perform a valid action? Why not a green dialog instead? I feel wrong when I see the red dialog, like "woops did I make something wrong?".

Color dialog that seems ok to me.

When I voted to reopen a question on one I already voted for:

When I try to upvote my own answer:

Color dialog that should wear a green color (or at least different than red)

When I vote to close a question. As a success message, I got a red dialog. Err.

I do not find a question / or an answer to flag, but I guess the message will still be red.

With previous orange dialog, I didn't find the color wrong because it doesn't match a wrong/right action as red does.

I thought it was a bit weird, given the whole reason for the borderless dialog window was to remove the scary red "error" appearance – Ben Brocka Feb 14 '13 at 19:43
Nice catch! +1 from QA))) – Peter L. Feb 14 '13 at 19:45
@Mat: I think the answer to that question better answers this one. That answer doesn't really address that question at all, in my opinion. – animuson Feb 14 '13 at 20:17
I liked the orange. It was a neutral colour with good contrast. It was of a good size and went away when you clicked on it. This looks like change for change's sake and it's turned into a bit of a backwards step. – Lightness Races in Orbit Feb 20 '13 at 14:45
Also, please bring back "click anywhere to close", I don't know who thought it was a good idea to limit it to the upper right X – juanformoso Feb 22 '13 at 16:42
@jmfsg: I already asked that here – Lightness Races in Orbit Feb 22 '13 at 16:52
