the standard colors for graphs (blue & pink, i suppose) in the statistics dashboard are hard to recognize and differentiate between for colorblind people...

please use colors that are more different, for instance a light blue and a luscious red graph, since colorblind people will rather be able to distinguish between them by brightness


Reproducible: Always




Color codes present particular problems for color blind people as they are often difficult or impossible for color blind people to understand.
Good graphic design avoids using color coding or color contrasts alone to express information, as this not only helps color blind people, but also aids understanding by normally sighted people. [...] for some color blind people, color can only be distinguished if there is a sufficient "mass" of color: thin lines might appear black while a thicker line of the same color can be perceived as having color.
