Change link colors in Vector
Open, LowestPublic

Description

Proposal

Developer notes

The link colors are actually defined in core (resources/src/mediawiki.skinning/elements.css)
Given we don't want to change this in places like Monobook we will need to override this with a new rule in Vector inside.

Why not change it in monobook? If it's an accessibility problem, that seems relevant to both.

One at a time! This is something that takes a lot of political will to happen for each skin.

But... why? If they're both currently the same, wouldn't people expect them to both change?

@Isarra I don't think anybody would expect these two skins to look and behave the same.
