The sidebar next to each question shows miscellaneous related/unrelated questions. On Server Fault, it's clear which of those have accepted answers, because there's a box around the vote count:

The Server Fault styling looks pretty much the same as on the main page, so we could do the same too -- mark posts with accepted answered green, unanswered gray. This would improve readability of the site and make things easier.

There is actually a style that applies the color (answered-accepted), but then another one overrides it; I can't tell if this is intentional or not. This is what it looks like with the color coming through:

I'm not sure if it stands out enough, but it's definitely visible. I'm definitely for some sort of indicator though

  • Wow.  If you hadn’t pointed out that one of these things was different from the others, I wouldn’t have noticed.  BTW, thanks for posting the screenshot.  (I was going to do it; you beat me to it and saved me the effort.) Oct 10, 2015 at 15:40

    Firstly, thanks for adding screenshots. Secondly, I think that we should change background colour instead of number's colour - this would be much more visible. Oct 11, 2015 at 12:00
  • That's hardly visible in your screenshot and it doesn't seem to work for linked answers. See, for example, here. There is one linked post which has an accepted answer but no indication of that.
