Don't know if it is just me, but have the shades of green on user profiles (accepted answers, line borders, etc.) changed somehow?

If we compare a screenshot from my main profile:

enter image description here

with one of my Meta profile:

enter image description here

We can see that the shades of green have been altered somehow. It is now more "opaque" than before. In fact, comparing the RGB values I get that previously (second pic) it was [50,197,112] and now (first pic) it is [141,178,98].

This I only see on my TWP profile. I checked on SO and the color there is like the second image. However, checking my Meta SE profile I see that the green color is like the first image (the opaque version).

Any explanation for this behavior? I know it is somehow superfluous but my eye couldn't help from noticing it.

Edit: Derivated MetaSE post I asked over there.


Fixed now; see my answer on your question on the network Meta.

Not only are main and meta different, but this is a recent change on main (and Meta.SE). Here's a snapshot from the Wayback machine:

  • Indeed. Seems to me that the "old" green shade was more adequate to the site's color palette. I wrote a Meta SE question (as you already saw) to see if they have something else to add to this situation – DarkCygnus Mod Jan 17 '18 at 20:27

It's not just you, it's definitely a different shade of green.

    Yup, same here. Question is, is this is a bug or a design change? The new green doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the color scheme and just looks out of place to me. – David K Jan 17 '18 at 19:23
