Can confirm that neither button changes at all for me when I vote. I've started using whether or not the number changes as my indicator for whether a vote went through.

Yeah, and that number is tiny and also hard to see. I'm concerned that this isn't just frustrating but also going to reduce interaction on conversations, because now instead of quickly clicking through and getting on with my day, I have to squint and unclick / reclick, multiple times sometimes, to make sure I actually voted.

turns out that lots of saiditors are old farts with dodgy eyesight :D

Could be our eyes are just tired from reading the endless, vain nonsense of youthfully-ignorant whippersnappers.

Agreed. It's almost troll level UI design.

You want serious contrast with things like button states. This seems like it was probably designed on a very nice HD/retina display and the designer isn't seeing just how non-visible the difference is on regular screens.

They're working on it, they've been upgrading the old blurry icons. It's now film noir looking. Still needs some tweaks.

Yup, now it's film noir. Teeny, tiny subtle color changes aren't exactly better.

Bring back the jpeg.

Seconded: the upvotes are still pretty difficult to see! It was nice having them change to solid black when you upvoted, provided more of a contrast.
