Unbreak Now and Needs Triage colours are too similar
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We have got some reports from users complaining that Unbreak Now and Needs Triage colours are too similar. It seems a problem simple to evaluate and eventually fix, so here goes a task.

Let me add that this is a problem that can be related and subjective, depending of the quality of your monitor and your vision.

For instance, the first time this problem was reported I found it to be a bit exaggerated (looking at my dedicated monitor in my home office at night). The second report came now that I'm in a bar on a quite sunny day, working with my laptop.

At HEAD, I think we've replaced the bar with icons everywhere, and I think we're planning to let different priorities have different icons, so this information will no longer be communicated only through the use of color once that happens (@chad, does that sound right?).

I do think these colors are pretty similar. maybe we could use pink for "Unbreak Now!" instead of indigo? (It's possible this was an unintended change around rebalancing of indigo?)
