Changing background of whole cards in Rapid Boards

Hello, on Jira 6.0.2 we are working with one Scrum Rapid Board on multiple projects and use the Card Colors feature for identifying the projects on this board. We also use the GreenHopper Flagged feature, which changes the whole background of the card to yellow, not just the little stripe on the left.

I was wondering, if it is somehow possible to configure whole issue cards backgrounds, for example for statuses. We want to work with a 3-column Board, but we need to identify issues via statuses (e.g. Reopened or Resolved, also our own statuses) without having to open them separately. We don't want to use that many Swimlanes, because it would make the board too chaotic. Unless there would be a way to *color swimlanes*, then it'd be enough, I guess.

I read a conversation here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GH/Configuring+Card+Colours in the comments and people were eager for such feature.

Thanks!

+1 for such feature. Now the background changes only if the story/task is flagged.

I find the small vertical color stripes as too subtle.

This would be a nice feature to have
