The new tag alerts (Thanks ABBY!!!!) need to be properly styled for this site:

Posted merely for documentation... not complaining at all! Love the new alerts, They'll really help I think.

    Yes please! That yellow really doesn't match our site's style. Feb 17, 2015 at 10:12

    It has the advantage though that it makes these alerts more difficult to miss.

The brown alert box looks OK to me — it's supposed to be somewhat jarring.

That said, the link colors inside the box look pretty awful: the links are dark, while the body text is white. Here's my humble suggestion for improving it:

.message.message-warning a, .message.message-warning a:visited {
    color: #FFEDA4;


I'm still not quite 100% happy with the contrast, but at least it's IMO a clear improvement over what we've got now. (It also pretty closely matches the styling for the red error and blue info messages, which have pink and light blue links respectively.)
