To ask why the OP posts keep changing colour?!

They were always blue. I could scan through a thread quickly looking for the blue posts if I wanted OP updates.

Then they went pink about a week ago. Was confused but okay.

Today they're green?!

I don't understand. I've probably missed the thread explaining it but please someone tell me why?!

I was wondering this too. OP posts were always green on my laptop. MNHQ posts appear in blue. Yesterday the OP posts went pink and they are still pink today. My own posts haven't changed colour.

I have been wondering the same

Bearcats Wed 26-Oct-16 17:45:08

My post is now also green, though I didn't start a thread in the pink phase to test it! MNHQ are still blue I think confused

This green colour is giving me a headache to be honest. The pink wasn't too bad but original was better!

I changed OP posts to forest green and my posts to pink and now OP posts are light green and mine are light pink but a couple of times they've swapped. I thought it was my phone being weird!

I noticed a couple of days ago on the mobile site that my post was green, and now the OP posts are green. On the desktop site the OP's posts are still purple.

Weird - I had noticed, and see OP posts on a pale orange / pink (tan?) background.

DadDadDad Wed 26-Oct-16 18:26:32

My own posts are on purple, as normal.

There's a thread on Site Stuff.

Tech are 'looking into it'.

DinnerIsDrivingMeBONKERS Wed 26-Oct-16 18:47:00

My posts and op posts are now different colours between the mobile site, desktop AND iPad! confused

Bearcats Wed 26-Oct-16 19:28:56

Glad it's not just me at least!! How odd that's it not actually intentional then! I thought there would be some kind of reasoning to it.

I never had any colours in subsequent posts from OP. Always found it really irritating as I had to look closely for updates. Is there something I need to do on the settings?

Mine have gone all peach colour; used to be green.

mygrandchildrenrock Wed 26-Oct-16 19:35:08

Enkopkaffetak yes but I can't remember what. Hopefully someone will come along who can!

Enkopkaffetak ...cick on the down arrow, next to TALK and then customise...you an choose colours.

Mine changed to green on and off yesterday and then I went in to change it to pink (op) and lavender (me)

makes it much easier to follow a thread.

TondelayaDellaVentamiglia Wed 26-Oct-16 19:40:08

**click, not cick.
and an= can...

my keyboard is full of crumbs!

Enkopkaffetak Wed 26-Oct-16 19:48:22

Oh my (having lots of fun here) thank you Tonde grin

SinisterBumFacedCat Wed 26-Oct-16 19:51:04

I thought it was just me!

OutnumberedbyFurchesters Wed 26-Oct-16 19:51:56

I've seen a few threads like this... Tried clicking on customize, but no option for colours appears?! sad

JenniferYellowHat1980 Wed 26-Oct-16 19:53:25

I know you can reset them as you want them but am wondering why it's happening hoping we're not having another security blip

kate33 Wed 26-Oct-16 19:56:42

Tonde you just changed my world!!! Never knew you could Change the colours and highlight the op's post. I wish I had this this info several years ago but it's better than never knowing! Xx

outnumbered You have to be on desktop for colour options to appear so either go on a computer and change it, or go back into customise while on your phone and scroll down to where it says 'desktop version' at the bottom!

Jennifer Don't worry it is MNHQ faffing about with them, there is a thread in site stuff.
