On meta sites (both per-site and MSE), I don't really care for accepted answer. What I do care about is the status of a bug report or feature request.

Currently, the Related/Linked questions in the sidebar got a different color when the question has an accepted answer. This is useful on main sites, however on meta sites (including here on MSE), I would prefer to have a different color for questions having a status tag on them.

For example, the Related questions list for this question would look like this:

This way I can easily know "those are handled", instead of "those got accepted answer", which is not really helpful on meta sites.

  • If there's also a way to distinguish positive from negative status-* tags, I'm sure this would be even better. – Nathan Tuggy Nov 1 '16 at 10:03
  • @Nathan true, I considered asking for that as well, but realized it might become too complicated. Better start with simple request, and then who knows... :) – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Nov 1 '16 at 10:45

Color's not a great way to distinguish status. (Colorblindness is fairly common, after all.)

I suggest that any question with a status-* tag on it be displayed with Italics.

That won't change the aesthetics of the related question list design, but will still convey that certain of the questions are different.
