There are numerous posts within the network about changing the highlighting color of questions that contain a favorited tag.
- Should favorite tag highlighting in question lists be changed?
- Color for “Favorite Tags” questions on new SO design needs to be stronger
- Darker color for favorite tags
None of the questions listed above have been answered or given any sort of status (declined, pending, ect..), so I am posting this here with a slightly different request.
As others have mentioned, I find the current highlighting a bit difficult to read on sites that use the yellowish background, it really messes with my eyes.
I would like to suggest removing the background color adding a visual indicator to the side of the question summary.
I came up with the following, I've added a border to the left side of the question summary with the main color of each sites theme; Stack Overflow orange, and Super User blue.
Interesting questions are still clearly visible in the list and the content is easy to read.
