Today, I noticed this Chemistry.SE ad on Programmers.SE:

I find that this combination of dark blue text on a dark green background very hard to read (and the white shadow doesn't really improve the situation).

Could the color contrast be improved?

    Perhaps you could post this on Chemistry Meta instead.

  • @HDE226868 From a practical viewpoint, it would likely be doomed to oblivion there, seeing that the only persons who could do anything about it will probably already have a hard time noticing this bug here on the main meta. But sure, from a proper policy viewpoint it might indeed be more appropriate there. Sep 6 '15 at 18:18

    Wait... If Chemistry has ads, does M&TV?

  • @Paweł Why did your edit have to go through peer review, when you're a SE employee? Is it because meta.SE is not considered a meta site? Is it a bug?

  • @Paweł you really better ask for a diamond so you can mark stuff as completed (or declined :)) all on your own. :) Apr 21 '16 at 18:11
  • @ShadowWizard yea, i may need to ask for diamond:)

Can be checked on live by this shortcut link after few/lots of refresh.

Update:- After the redesigning of HNQ ad, the base image has been altered a bit but mostly change is in size:

Note: Currently can't find any active HNQ image ad question to check the changes in text font and shadow , if any.
