    This fails three of four accessibility standards. Should definitely be changed. – ArtOfCode Apr 2 '16 at 17:49

    That said, apparently the UX model fails all four of them... maybe standards aren't always right. – ArtOfCode Apr 2 '16 at 17:51
  • @ArtOfCode You make a great point. I knew something was wrong without using special tech. – Cøde Play Apr 2 '16 at 17:56
  • This question needs an answer from a moderator. What will it take for Stack Exchange to change its styling? – Cøde Play Apr 4 '16 at 18:48
  • It'll take them accepting this feature request, and then a developer implementing it. – ArtOfCode Apr 4 '16 at 19:18

    @CødePlay It looks like they applied the change on most established SE sites sometime today. No [status-completed] though... – boxspah Apr 20 '16 at 23:07

For a UX model pass, the color should change #4ab471 and the text color needs to be changed to #0a0a0a to pass everything.

The green looks very similar (and appealing) to the one in your second photo but the white color seems to be a little too light thus the failure @ArtOfCode mentioned. So the text has to change to a darker color, which will be #0a0a0a because of the need of dark text on a light background.

  • Excellent answer. Before I accept an answer, I want to wait for a moderator to answer. – Cøde Play Apr 4 '16 at 18:49
