We currently use a lot of colors for categories and sub-categories. As a result the categories overview page is very visually distracting. It’s moved beyond playful. Two suggestions:
- Use different shades of the same color for categories and sub-categories (e.g. Org is Dark Blue, and Org > Meta is light blue).
- Use strong colors for top level categories, and grey for ALL sub-categories. A thin strip of the top level color will still be included in the category blocks.
I tried it out and find the second one is more elegant. Someone changed the colors back, which is probably the right response, but I’d like to formally suggest we make this change - to make the categories less distracting.
