I just refreshed a page to see my +10 rep notification turned blue. On chat it still shows green, but everywhere else (MSE, regular stacks, SO) I see this blue background.

I didn't see any posts about this already, and it's recent (since ~11am EST this morning) - is it WAI? Winterbash related?

Tiny bug there with a variable rename. Our variable literally named @green was coming out blue. CSS 😛

    Looks like there are some other lingering, minor issues from that CSS tweaks. For example, on Meta Stack Overflow, “edit” links on comments are appearing in blue, even though that is not the correct link color for the MSO theme. Dec 11, 2019 at 21:35
  • But it's not the same green as it used to be - a paler, more flaccid shade. Dec 15, 2019 at 17:01
