They are already quarrelling on meta about the accepted answer box getting a darker green. It looks especially disagreeable on ELU against the beige... I find it even annoying, but this is probably subjective.

I am just wondering, can ELU keep the old green, or MUST it comply to general changes done on SO?

  • I doubt we can ask the staff to customise colours or revert to the previous shade. I wonder what the dark green looks like on SO's black theme?

    Urgh, the accepted answer box's a horrible pasty washed-out green with the dark theme. Much better the currant shade than that one.

    For whoever want to close the question: I thought on Meta a discussion means that you can give an opinion about how the site looks and make suggestions.

Having site-unique colors for this part of the design isn't an option, since having "unified site designs" makes it easier to maintain and update the network. However, you can vote on the various MSE proposals to show your interest in possible alternatives. No guarantees, but the more interest there is, the more likely something will be changed.

Just look at these mock-ups!
