Template talk:Rgb

ok, so i edited the code so that the "#" symbol comes first... this way i was able to "include" it in the Color & Player Role templates... that way for the color variable in both, you can just type the color or the hexadecimal, or the 3 "double-digit" code... plus you don't have to include the "#" sign, something i'm ALWAYS forgetting... i think it could be implemented into the Night Choice template as well, but i'm tired, and going to bed soon...-- LyingBrian 03:35, 21 August 2007 (MDT)

ok, not going to bed as soon as i thought... i wanted to add some colors... what do you think about shortening the color names?.. for example "purple" & "yellow" are just as long as their respective hexadecimal code, (granted their a lot easier to remember, but nonetheless), and "light-green" is almost twice as long... of course i shortened it to "lgreen", but still... the major colors off the top of my head could be...

  • red=r
  • green=g
  • blue=b
  • l=light
  • d=dark
  • y=yellow
  • p=purple
  • t=teal
  • bl=black
  • w=white
  • g=gray
  • o=orange
  • br=brown
  • pi=pink
  • i=indigo? personally i would just use dp for "dark purple"

I expect the template would allow you to use two codes, right, so you could have both r and red? I probably won't use this particular template since I'm comfortable using the color codes directly, but that seems like it might help people. -- Mr. Flay 06:26, 21 August 2007 (MDT)
Giving the option of using either would be ideal. For some, remembering the shorthand codes may be as difficult as remembering the rgb codes ;). --YYCguy 07:34, 21 August 2007 (MDT)
Single-letter names can be confusing for new users. It is that bad to type "reen" after "g"? Anyway, the current version looks very nice.SigmaEpsilon (talk) 09:19, 21 August 2007 (MDT)
We should also remember to include/mimic the colorcode names from the forum (i.e. darkblue, darkred, etc). -- Mr. Flay 10:54, 21 August 2007 (MDT)


"The colors returned by this template are not the same as the standard predefined HTML/CSS colors."

why shouldn't they be the same?.. i also think that if we're going to 'name' colors they should abide by a 'standard', such as the colors in Wikipedia. (Link) -- LyingBrian 18:12, 21 August 2007 (MDT)

Actually, the colors I had listed were the exact shades (where applicable) used in the forum. I think in many cases they are the same as the web standard, but not in every case. -- Mr. Flay 18:30, 21 August 2007 (MDT)
