I just found some icons of Stack Exchange Network have problems in dark mode as in example https://cardano.meta.stackexchange.com/. have color problems. see image below.

Very Dark Color

So what about changing the Color. I asked this Question in Cardano Meta. But Nike Dattani has saied the image is useless because it is Unicode Character

I don't think that will be entertained because unless it's a unicode character. Sites don't get custom designs unless there's a sponsor, or the site becomes very mature (usually takes several years: Etherium.SE and Bitcoin.SE do not even have custom designs yet!).

So what is the solution here or we could just skip that and move forward ..

Notice : I mean All sites that face same problem in Dark Mode which Cardano Meta one of them.

Thanks All.

  • Are you asking us to make all site icons readable in dark mode browsers or just the one? If it's just the one, this question needs to stay on Cardano.

  • @Catija Actually All Stack Exchange Sites that have same problem (e.g Cardano)

  • Do most sites consider this? Is it common for sites to have icons that are different for both light and dark browsers? I'm not sure we even have a way to do this.

    Just wanted to clarify that the fix we shipped here is for when the favicons show within Stack Overflow, like in the hot network questions, or the communities in your profile. There currently isn't a bulletproof way to swap favicons in the browser tab for dark mode. Apr 27, 2021 at 23:10

When this community added a favicon, it looks like we didn't get the dark mode version of the icon right. You can see this when comparing Cardono to others in our sprite sheet. The black should actually be a slightly lighter gray.

This will go out in the next build.
