Would it be an idea to change how tags are displayed on a question? Make them more visible.

It is not a big issue, but seems like people, (me included – though I'm better now), sometimes jump to fast and overlook the tags. Guess they disappear a bit among the "share edit retag flag" links.

Find e.g. superuser tags to be much better.

I understand the need for consistency – as in same layout for tags everywhere, and as such I find the listing under e.g. "/questions" for Unix & Linux to be better again, – but there should perhaps be a way to make them stand out a bit more on the Q/A pages.

I agree - especially for those with a) crappy monitors and/or b) visual issues requiring high contrast. I regularly use five different SE sites, and all have more easily-identified tags than U&L. Right now, the tags here are set to background-color: rgb(240, 240, 240). Adjusting it down to 200 or so looks much better, at least to me:

I apologize, I only have MS Paint on my work computer...

  • Though that makes the tag itself harder to read, because it reduces the contract between text color and background.

    They're now 230 - slightly darker, but still enough contrast to read the text.
