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

I just noticed my downvoted answer got a different style after a certain number of votes, to look dimmer, lighter. But the links did not followed up and are still dark, widely visible and even more highlighted this way. That's all.

It is a shaming process... – Michael Kniskern Mar 16 '10 at 21:38
What does this have to do with unanswered-questions? :) – Sampson Mar 16 '10 at 21:45
@Sampson nothing really. That tag probably entered there due to the auto-complete bugs... I'll change it. – cregox Mar 16 '10 at 21:47

Looks like they just need to add:

.downvoted-answer a { color:#666 }

That's correct, but maybe there's more to it than just <A>. – cregox Mar 16 '10 at 21:49
Not from the looks of it. I could be wrong though. – Sampson Mar 16 '10 at 21:51
There's also a .downvoted-answer { color: #888 } – Josh K Mar 16 '10 at 21:59
@Caw: even if there were, .downvoted-answer * { color:#666 } would solve it. – perbert Mar 16 '10 at 22:11
@JoshK, @voyager If you wanted to change text/links to the same dimmed-color, yes :) – Sampson Mar 16 '10 at 22:15
Jonathan, only the first @ will get notified, per comment. @voyager that seems like it, but I wouldn't be so sure. Also I still can't try it here on Safari. – cregox Mar 16 '10 at 22:48
@Cawas: No, I think that JoshK was notified as it doesn't appear on my Recent Activity notifications. – perbert Mar 17 '10 at 13:41
Jonathan, it just came to me, what if there's an image there? It would probably not dim out too... I'll edit to see what happens, but this is the kind of thing that I meant by "maybe there's more to it" ;) – cregox Mar 18 '10 at 0:58
@Cawas: Considering jQuery is already loaded, images could be faded too :) $(".downvoted-answer img").fadeTo(0, .5); – Sampson Mar 18 '10 at 1:06
@voyager, as for notifications Cawas is right: 1) Only the first @ is parsed, no matter how long it is and no matter if a match can be made; 2) If the matched @ refers to yourself, then no notification is triggered; 3) The match should be at least 3 characters, but if there's more characters they should match too (spaces ignored); 4) Umlauts et al will probably work, but only if they're in the display name; funny rewriting of display names will not trigger notifications. (see comments at…) – Arjan Mar 26 '10 at 7:44
@arj, it's weird because I think that I was notified for that comment, but it was probably Cawas' comment and not Jonathan's. You must be right. – perbert Mar 26 '10 at 13:27
