I noticed today on Ask Ubuntu we got a new banner for duplicate questions.

enter image description here

I think the wording is a lot better and the bigger banner will cause less confusion. However it took me a while to find where the link had gone too.

I finally realized the black title was the link.

I found this rather confusing and counter intuitive, especially when the other links on the site are different colors.

Is this a bug? Or is there a reason for the black link?

    It's a hidden feature :P – user210447 Feb 6 '13 at 19:40
  • Addendum: the links turn in "unvisited" colour in case you've visited it. Very contradictionary with the rest of Ask Ubuntu hyperlink colours. I suggest to retag it with bug. – gertvdijk Feb 6 '13 at 22:08

    It's just the default css class applied to question anchors; I'll remove it tomorrow. – Jarrod Dixon Feb 7 '13 at 1:45

The question links in that duplicate banner should now be styled like other links in posts' bodies.
