# Button color in chat provides no contrast

The buttons in chat are colored so that

1. they are hardly visible over the background and

2. the logo is hardly visible on the button(s).

A point can be made for solving 1) by using the b/w version of the background in chat (which may take some of the color-saturation punch out of it), but that does not solve 2). So I move for using a different color for the buttons.

• @Paweł Any news on this and this related proposal/bug?

• This may be my favorite. I think an even darker grey would be better, though.
