I often scroll through the newest questions https://photo.stackexchange.com/questions and find that one question has been highlighted in a darker grey panel. At time of writing, the question titled LR Develop Module showing negative image!, asked a few hours ago, is one such example.

I've wondered this for quite a long time, and I'm still unable to see any correlation with eg user type, number of answers, comments, views or anything? I also can't find anything in meta or help when searching for 'grey' or 'gray'

The grey highlights questions that are tagged with any of your favorite tags.

That question is tagged with [lightroom], so unless I'm mistaken, you have [lightroom] as a favorite tag?

I imagine the style differs from site to site, which is why searching on "grey" would not turn anything up.

  • Lightroom was my only favourite tag, I hadn't been using favourite tags, best I start making use of them! thanks Aug 5, 2016 at 8:08
