The only vote I see is a 'great off-topic' vote, but my profile shows a red box.

Are you sure you lost rep? I've tried my hand at a few off-topic questions and they all show red boxes, but they actually add reputation. It's just a weird colouring scheme... – Aarobot Jun 5 '10 at 13:36
Oh, hmm. Sure enough. No - sign. OK, fooled me. – Rosinante Jun 5 '10 at 14:04
Those boxes should have been changed to blue. This has been fixed. – David Fullerton Jun 5 '10 at 17:36
@David sorry, but I'm still seeing red boxes for off-topic votes – Tobias Kienzler Jun 17 '10 at 8:19
@Tobias Fixed now. We had fixed it on the user profile page but missed the recent activity page – David Fullerton Jun 21 '10 at 14:53
thanks @David, confirmed – Tobias Kienzler Jun 21 '10 at 15:11

I also find the green/red for on-/off-topic votes confusing.

But it looks like some of it (on the proposal page) has changed with the new voting (on-topic is now green, off-topic is blue, and bad is red), which is weird that green isn't the opposite of red.

Ah, I see you're talking about the profile page only. I've not gotten any off-topic votes since the reset. – Gnome Jun 5 '10 at 14:31
