Users are perplexed that the colors of username links above Flow posts are slightly different from the default link and redlink colors. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:Flow?workflow=rpgymsqocif1l3b4
This introduces inconsistency for little gain. If the colors for links and redlinks aren't ideal, we should change them in core (they come from a in skins/common/commonElements.css skins/common/commonElements.css and a.new in skins/common/shared.css).
The fix is easy, just delete
@username-color: #3C68B1; // Normal redlink colour @username-redlink-color: #a55858;
