I'm about a month late with this, but SB Nation's inimitable tech team is giving us the ability to change the way we see the most rec'd comments in our threads.
Since the beginning of SB Nation's time, the comments that received three recommendations would turn green, green thumbs up and green background. "Green this (wo)man's comment" a commenter would say; "Greeeeeeen'd"; etc., not even realizing that green is the color that gets punched in the face by Bill Laimbeer.
Green is supposedly the color of geniuses, jealousy and envy, and, once upon a time, love. I imagine SB Nation chose the default green with (one of) those associations in mind. But we have a chance to blaze a new trail of colored comments. Several of you have voiced support to change, so we're going to ultimately leave it up to you.
Do you want something more team oriented or do you want to stick with the traditional green? Take a look at some others around the network and then place your vote. We're leaving the choice up to the majority of the community based on the results of the poll below. Voice any other thoughts or concerns in the comments.
Pinstripe Alley blue - This is the staff's favorite.
Bleed Cubbie Blue blue and red - (I really like this one, but red thumbs up could have a "flagged" connotation)
Old DBB - I'm not sure this is even possible, but white text on a black background like the good ol' days.
