It appears that the background of the meta logo doesn't match the background colour used for the rest of the page -- would it be possible to bring these in line?


According to the eyedropper in Photoshop, the meta logo background is #FEFEFE, whilst the page background is #FFFFFF.

This is as about as subtle a difference as there could be, and it possibly is only noticeable to:

  • People using TFTs, where viewing at "odd" angles, gives an artificial boost to contrast
  • People using screens calibrated with colourimeters
  • People that have good eyesight (possibly might need "better than average").
  • Lay down a screenshot?

  • Take a photo of it, post it on Flickr and then tweet it back for all to compare

  • The SO logo is OK, as is the SU one.

It looks fine on my computer, but I can kind-of see the outline of the logo.

    So if you can see the outline, there must be a difference, which is what I'm trying to point out :) Jul 30, 2009 at 15:49

Looks fine in Chrome

Edit: Actually, I'm sure that's a function of my LCDs. As Rowland points out, the image shows a background of #FEFEFE (off white) and the page background is set to #FFFFFF (pure white).

  • Just checked with a screenshot in Photoshop, and it also gives a difference between #FEFEFE and #FFFFFF Jul 30, 2009 at 19:58
