It seems a couple minutes ago, a change was applied to the styling of the homepage, with users' rep scores now being much darker (and standing out more):

new look of the homepage

Compare with the former light grey colouring (image courtesy of this question):

former look, scores written in light gray

Is this intentional? If so, why? It highlights something that's not really relevant, in my opinion.

    @Sonic if that's the reason, I'd be interested in knowing why the accessibility focus was put on users' rep - stuff like votes sounds way more important to me

    Due to the color change, reputation look like more important than username. I don't think reputation is that important information.

    What? Isn't this site all about reputation?

Sorry for the UI regression. This has been fixed.
