The colors of up and down traffic icons seems wrong to me.

    As a new hubber I just had my first traffic up arrow showing on one of my hubs. Still at first glance I thought that something was wrong - red colour is usually used to alert about something being wrong, like the red skull is.
    If something is good I would expect it to be green or blue if neutral. This is what we normally observe on stock exchange for example.
    As the colour is usually a first indication of something happening, I'm surprised with a choice on HubPages - red for good and blue for bad.
    What are your thoughts on it?

      I noticed after you pointed out.

      In the first, my idea would be to keep only a UP bottom.  Just keep the negative energy away from hub activities.

      Red means your hub is blazing hot... big_smile and blue means the doldrums.. sad
      HP only wants you to notice it when your traffic is hot!!

      Red is "hot" and blue is "cool."  Makes perfect sense to me, especially with the arrow direction.

    I like your explanation - blazing hot smile If only the skull wasn't red - as from the distance I don't know if I'm doing brilliantly or being in a big trouble wink
