In the page history, make "updated since my last visit" entries more visible
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Regular Wikipedia editor here. Currently, in an article history page, the entries that have been modified since my last visit are marked only by having the bullet on the left margin green instead of black, and by inserting the phrase "updated since my last visit" in the history line. These are still too subtle (and I am not even color-blind), and the phrase adds too much clutter to the already cluttered lines.

Would you consider removing that phrase, and instead marking each entry with a bold "NEW" on the left margin? Or at least make the dot twice as big.

You can easily do this with CSS for yourself. That's the whole point of allowing user CSS. There's no way for this to be done in a way that'll satisfy everybody. For instance, if the dot is made "twice as big" per your suggestion that would be distracting to me, and many others.
