I guess I associate green with Œgo¹ and red with Œstop¹. I use those
colors for that purpose in some cases, but not as the sole indicator.

Happy Friday!

Hi Teresa,

Yes, they did use multiple things there for sure. I guess I never liked
green/red for do/don't or good/bad. It is a personal preference thing. I
know why they used those colours, but I stay away from that combination in
general.

Cheers

Lisa
