Top bar showing double color for Drupal Answers for both main site and meta site.

AFAIK the color for top bar is #212121 as mentioned in the blog. Check out the below screenshot. I can see this in opera and firefox on windows 7. It looks not nice on profile picture area.

normal screen

With background set to be 100% transparent, it looks like this:

100% transparent screen

The dark blue ends abruptly, creating double-colour effect after adding black semitransparent overlay.

It was #212121 yesterday. I like the idea of rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8) - it should generate "almost black" tinted with the colour of a site. I just think that other parts of the themes should be fixed to really make it work. – Mołot Dec 6 '13 at 7:55
I edited in a second screenshot, interpreting OPs comment at Meta Drupal Answers as invitation to cooperate. – Mołot Dec 6 '13 at 8:03
@Mołot thanks for joining and pointed out the exact appearance! – Bala Dec 6 '13 at 8:12
Same issue on the Photography site. – John Cavan Dec 6 '13 at 15:09

I have pushed a fix for this. It will go alive after the next production build.

This actually appears to affect all SE sites which had a custom top-bar previously.

They're using a background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.8) to generate the "blackish" color for the top-bar. For a site like Stack Overflow, this is not a problem because the background behind it is white. However, on a site like Drupal, the background behind that is a header background image, which has a built-in background-color for the top-bar that starts to bleed through the 80% transparent black that's being used on top of it.

For example, I can also reproduce this on English SE:

Weird color bleeding

Ok, but I can not see any official post, If you check the blog I linked you can see the A Bigger, Blacker Bar – Bala Dec 6 '13 at 5:24
It's an oversight. I doubt they tested this on other themes. They'd need to make it a solid color or fix the background images so they don't do that anymore. – animuson Dec 6 '13 at 5:24
@Bala only conversation with ♦ even remotely about this I recall was this comment and further discussion. I mean, it looks like an amazing coincidence I ask about something yesterday in comments and it is implemented (with little bug, but anyway) today. – Mołot Dec 6 '13 at 8:12
