If you've been in the comments the last few days, you've probably noticed that things look a little different. Namely, comments with three or more recs no longer have a green background. Rather, they have a gold background. Like so:
It's part of a new option that SBN has made available to blogs on the network: having team-specific colors for rec'd comments. BHGP isn't the only blog rocking new colors for rec'd comments.
There's Black Shoe Diaries:
And Coug Center:
And We Ain't Got No History:
That's just a handful of the blogs with new colors in the comments. I'm sure you'll see more as you peruse Blogfrica.
I've seen a few people ask if we could have had a black background with a gold thumbs up -- sorry, no. Since comment text also appears as black, the comment would be unreadable. Making it so that comment text didn't appear as black in rec'd comments (and only in rec'd comments) would require more HTML-FU than SBN's webmonkeys are able to devote to this issue right now.
So yeah. That's why rec'd comments look different now. Do you dig it? Do you hate it? Let us know in the comments.
