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 find the yellow text in the green box of a question that has been answered difficult to read. I wouldn't necessarily like to see this changed, but I think an addition to the box to make it more obvious the question was answered would be a definite improvement.

Would it be possible to add at a stylish ribbon through the top-left corner of the box with the Stack Overflow checkmark on it.

Here's roughly my suggestion. (I just threw these together in a few minutes; It can be done much better, I'm sure.)

Not that I don't like the graphic, but I hope we don't end up with web 2.0 graphics – abel Jan 8 '11 at 12:30
I am not an expert at all, but adding a true image (with the proper alt-text) might be nice for the visually impaired as well? And as an aside: on (for example?), there's no box at all, unless a question has been answered. – Arjan Jan 8 '11 at 12:55
Looks like a Nike sweatband. Can't you Nike guys just [sponsor-a-tag] like normal people? I hate viral advertising. Viral advertiser. Nyah. – Won't Mar 9 '11 at 15:00

My simple suggestion would be to make the box more green and the text off-white.

On low monitor brightness settings, I can hardly tell the difference between the regular box and the "answered" box. Even at regular brightness, it still is too similar to the others. – Mark C Jan 8 '11 at 21:13
