 Replying to [comment:38 afercia]:
 > Nice to see all the new proposals and thanks to all the new contributors
 :) From an accessibility point of view plain text would always be the best
 option but we can improve accessibility also for a "graphic" solution, as
 shown in [comment:3 the third comment].
 > Please consider in both cases orange is a very difficult color, almost
 impossible to have a minimum color contrast ratio of 4:5 unless it's
 turned in an "almost brown" or "almost red".
 > Visually, I like the notification badge. Maybe it wouldn't be so clear
 what the number in the gray bubble represents: total? Approved ones?

 Grey would be approved, badge would be unapproved.
 Have a hard time wrapping my head around showing a total
 (approved+pending) while showing one of those values beside it.

 > Also, the gray should be changed in order to have a sufficient contrast
 ratio. Currently, both in the Posts and in the Comments list the bubble is
 blue when there are pending comments and gray otherwise. What would you
 recommend here? Maybe just always use the blue?

 In my patch I just used the colours from other parts of the theme, the
 orange for example is the same orange as the badge in the admin menu.

 Is there a set of colour variables I should have referenced? Or is that
 something that's being worked on in another ticket?
