Please make it easier to find problems solved by friends but not by you

Post by godmar »

The progress page of a friend, reachable via https://projecteuler.net/progress=<friendsname> shows what problems they've solved and which one's you've solved.

To me, the primary use case for this page is to find those problems that my friend solved but I have not.

This, however, is near impossible to find out if the difference set is small (try it if you have a friend where this set is small). The reason is that you're looking for a cell that could be in any color (for difficulty), but which is non-bold black instead of bold green on an orange background, in a sea of green bold boxes with all kinds of orange backgrounds.

The WCAG AA and WCAG AAA ratings for the orange/green combination, btw, is a Fail, btw, see https://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/ for #009000 and #FF8600, so I suspect I'm not the only one who has difficulties here.

Can this page be improved to visually highlight the difference sets?
