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.

    It seems a CSS file got crossed from Stack Overflow. – Sonic the Anonymous Hedgehog Jul 20 at 20:04

    In all honesty, it looks kinda nice... but I do want the blue back. – Catija ModStaff Jul 20 at 20:10

    The orange is being applied network-wide too. It's just most obvious on Meta. ;P – animuson ModStaff Jul 20 at 20:10

    @Taryn At least you know Stacks is working properly. The colour change is very consistent. – wizzwizz4 Jul 20 at 20:13

    Grey and orange, it seems like an unhappy marriage of Bauhaus and Mediterranean. – A Rogue Ant. 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. – Mari-Lou A Jul 20 at 20:14

    I like the orange on Meta.SE! Not on the Beta sites where everything else is blue though. – user1271772 Jul 20 at 20:23

    Who do I bribe with a bunch of stroopwafels to keep this? – Tinkeringbell Mod Jul 20 at 20:27

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. – Tinkeringbell Mod Jul 20 at 20:30
