    In place of the existing status bar, each of the major attributes will now be smart enough to know whether it's important on its own. The content itself says enough, but we also conditionally color things so that they stand out if they're overdue or something worth being concerned about.

    Curious what red/orange means in the context of "last comment" (what I assume the speech bubble means).

    For now, my thinking on last comment and age are fairly simply. If it's been more than a week since an issue was updated, it's orange. If it's been more than a month, it's red. I'm not sure where or how we communicate the specifics of that, but you bring up a very good point in that it's not clear.

    Time is a hard one because it is relative on projects. Some projects may last a year, and others may last a week or even less. However, I'm thinking that these are safe time frames for a couple of reasons.

    Regardless of the length of a project, leaving anything stagnant for more than a week probably isn't good. Even if there's no official progress or resolution, it needs an update.

    The other reason is behavior-oriented. If something is constantly reminding you that it's stagnating, it will ideally force you to honest with yourself about whether you're actually going to address it or whether it's just there as a nice-to-have.

    I'm really guilty of this. I'll put something in a milestone even though it's not really that important and it just keeps getting delayed and delayed until I've closed everything else out. Then I see it and realize just how old it is. Theoretically, this would help me identify those earlier and keep things more accurate.
