I arrived at a question on Seasoned Advice (I assume it applies to all stack exchange sites which is why I posted here) and it showed this banner:

enter image description here

Two issues:

  • The search box is visible. But you can't give it focus. So when trying to search, this confused me a for a little while.
  • The gray top and white bottom also seems weird.

I guess this is all due to opacity. Seems like an unhelpful design choice?

  • Unhelpful? I can't see the search bar in your image. Only when I hold my finger on a touch screen, it starts to get visible. It's a non-issue to me. – Marshmallow Apr 15 '17 at 18:37
  • Interesting. For me, it's very visible. Must be due to monitor/screen differences. – Kirk Woll Apr 15 '17 at 18:38
  • Well, the banner is translucent so that's by design – Anthony Pham Apr 15 '17 at 21:29
  • @AnthonyPham It's not supposed to be, no. – Adam Lear Apr 16 '17 at 3:06
