What happened here? It used to be blue.

The primary colour has changed network wide it appears. The Ask a question button is orange on a selected site I just randomly tested, as was also pointed out by Animuson in the comments.

    In all honesty, it looks kinda nice... but I do want the blue back.

    The orange is being applied network-wide too. It's just most obvious on Meta. ;P

    @Taryn At least you know Stacks is working properly. The colour change is very consistent.

    Grey and orange, it seems like an unhappy marriage of Bauhaus and Mediterranean. Jul 20 at 20:13

    I vote to keep the orange on Meta. it's cheerful, it's hard to feel depressed when a site smiles at you.

    I like the orange on Meta.SE! Not on the Beta sites where everything else is blue though. Jul 20 at 20:23

Fixed!

We’ve got a new theming API in Stacks that was leaking a bit. Funnily enough, all the themes we happened to test via smoke tests already had orange buttons so we didn't catch it.

And before everyone shouts about visual regression testing, yeah. I agree. We're working on that too 😛

    @KevinM.Mansour this shade of orange goes great with a bright pink. Source: My 15-year-old bedroom wallpaper.
