Building on the discussion we had back in the day about task status colors (check "Standardize colors and think of statuses" in the BO), I'm bringing this back up here again too. It is already a nice progress to have the color distinction at all, as I know others also had their difficulties with it. Although I know that green as completed can give us a good feeling that things are done and I think it is certainly nice for the progress bar, I find it confusing to have as a color in the overview. Black doesn't draw me to the open tasks. I'd vote to change the completed task to grey/black and perhaps strike even the task name through and make the open tasks more attractive with a color. Perhaps as green or blue or our signature orange?

What do others think? These are our colors for the BO, if anyone needs reference:

Thanks Carolin.

My vote is: green is nice for COMPLETED, gives a warm and fuzzy feeling inside when seeing green all over.

Color for open ones I would say: not green as it conflicts with completed; not blue as it is the color of links and it tends to confuse, but any other color can work for me.
