Could we get a unique styling for answer hyperlinks? Currently, question and answer links look exactly the same — the color, anyway.

This is more a functional request than an aesthetic one, because it would enable you to quickly tell answer from question at a glance (in the rep history, flag history, moderator tools, etc.). Sometimes there are additional text hints (for example "asked" vs. "answered" in the flag queue), but that's not really at a glance because you have to read a word and that's hard work.

I guess I should just show you what I mean. I changed the answer link color to the color Stack Overflow uses with a user style.

{
    .answer-hyperlink {
        color: #555555 !important;
    }
}

Implemented in the new site's design - question links are blue, answer links are green.

That's quite non intuitive. It rather looks like visited/non-visited links. I think that if you want to make questions and answers visually distinct, you should do so textually.

  • Well, I admit I don't actually know what a visited link looks like here, I have that option turned off. But that's only an example, of course, it doesn't have to be gray(ish). I still think it could work. Other sites already do this. All of the trilogy sites, for example. – a cat Apr 24 '12 at 17:56
