The second question should have a different color since I favorited 'tags'. While the RGB values I picked from the picture try to convince me of a difference between the background of the second question I can honestly not see it (I am a bit red-green color blind). Can we get something that looks actually a bit different for the 5% with a color deficiency?

  • Here's a feature I didn't know about. Looking at the code, the background of the tagged question is a light gray #fafafb. The background of other list items is transparent -- i.e., you can see the page's background pattern. Because the background pattern is also a light gray, they are virtually indistinguishable.

The background color of page elements marked tagged-interesting should be changed from the color #fafafb. That color is basically indistinguishable from the default background. It should be darkened. The color #eff0f1, which is already in the scheme for code blocks and blockquotes, would do fine.

I have flagged this as a bug. The site design clearly intends questions marked tagged-interesting to have a contrasting color. This is a problem in implementation, i.e., a bug. Probably easily squashed.
