I'm in total agreement that this is the best thing ever! Thanks for doing this. --Guppymomma 15:04, 28 July 2006 (PDT)

I sort of prefer the yellow/green scheme as a way to set it apart from the other doubloon oceans. Then again, if Three Rings is going to be opening a bunch of foreign-language servers, perhaps we should pick a whole different pallet, perhaps in the reds, to distinguish them from the English-language servers.--Fiddler 10:30, 17 November 2006 (PST)

I vote yellow-green. Denotes the doubloonness of the ocean and is different from the other colors of green. --Guppymomma 15:38, 17 November 2006 (PST)
I'm also a fan of yellow-green. --Yaten talk 19:50, 19 November 2006 (PST)
Any other opinions? I'll set this the yellow/green on Monday if nobody objects.--Fiddler 09:17, 2 December 2006 (PST)
Support yellow-green. --Barrister 11:36, 2 December 2006 (PST)


Need something "Malachity", ehehe.... --Knowledge13 07:32, 5 May 2008 (PDT)

I'm actually leaning towards the Opal Blue/Green option, personally. Or maybe Malachite C. --Fiddler 08:09, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
I kind of like Malachite B, but thats just my opinion. --Knowledge13 08:15, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
I like Malachite B as well. Its different from the other ones. --Fearlessphil 08:17, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
Thats the main reason I liked it....--Knowledge13 08:18, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
I lean toward B as well due to the distinctness. The rest are a little too close to Viridian's color to be easily recognized as a different ocean. --Guppymomma 08:24, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
Okay, I'm swayed. The B header is much more unique, but I still prefer the background colors for C. --Fiddler 08:32, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
Is there some reason we can't go with header B and background C rather than the same option for both? I rather like background C over B as well. --Belthazar451 08:41, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
Presto changeo! --Guppymomma 08:44, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
Since there seems to be consensus so far on option B, I'll just make the header and background templates with that. They can be changed if the consensus changes. --Guppymomma 10:00, 5 May 2008 (PDT)

Keep the comments coming, deciding the color is an important task, as it will be used on many pages. --Knowledge13 08:30, 5 May 2008 (PDT)

Hmm, this is a tough one. Anyhow, who gets the official decision on the color? Eurydice? Cleaver? --Knowledge13 08:35, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
Chiming in a little late, but I also think B is the best. Also, the collective wiki editors choose the colors, yourself included. The Ringers leave these kinds of things to us. --Barrister 11:28, 5 May 2008 (PDT)
I see, thats a nice setup. So for example if the majority of voters supports something, then its done? arr... --Knowledge13 07:41, 6 May 2008 (PDT)
That's how wikis work, after all. --Belthazar451 08:16, 6 May 2008 (PDT)
Well, most of the time... :P --Knowledge13 08:18, 6 May 2008 (PDT)

The outline for the background one was too light compared to the other production oceans. I darkened it up a bit so it won't look so out of place in pirate infoboxes. --Guppymomma 22:16, 6 May 2008 (PDT)

Palette colors

When I get some time, I should add the palette colors to this page. This is just a reminder for myself for later. --Barrister 11:45, 5 May 2008 (PDT)

Jade & Crimson

Jade looks fine, I looked it up on Wikipedia and its a green substance. I'll go with Jade A. --Lcawte 17:59, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Jade A looks okay to me as well. (Edit: Although come to think of it, looking at my jade, it's more bluish for some pieces so possibly C is better. The only pieces that are green green are really dark pine green.) We should probably do a table of the real colors on this page so we can compare properly. I like Crimson B or C for the main part, but I think the background needs to be a lot lighter otherwise it will stand out among the other oceans' backgrounds. --Guppymomma 01:40, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I prefer Jade C and I agree with Guppy's comments about Crimson. Crimson B works best for me for the main part but the background needs to be a lot lighter. -- Cedarwings (talk) 01:52, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
I rather like B for Jade. I agree that Crimson should be a bit paler. It's gonna be tricky getting a red that doesn't stick out like a sore thumb amongst all the greens and blues, but we can at least avoid eye-burningly bright. Maybe something like
#ff8888 or #ffcaca for backgrounds, and
#ff4b4b or #ff6363 for the header
--Belthazar451 01:54, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

(undent) My current favorites are Jade C for both header and background and the header from Crimson C. I like the idea of #ff8888 for the background. Incidentally, the headers for Jade and Crimson C both come from the Wikipedia definition of the colors. --Fiddler 03:08, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

#ff8888 works much better for me for the Crimson background. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Amoyer (talkcontribs)
Zacb1 has arbitrarily created a header template with #990033 as the colour. It actually doesn't look half bad, but I don't know how much it's in keeping with the other oceans. --Belthazar451 07:03, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
I am not meaning to take over but thought it best to set up a header template so the Yppedia pages load correctly, the colour can easily be changed at a later date as and when people are agreed, but needed a background template as to work on buiilding the pages. --Zacb1 07:03, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Understandable. I've switched the background one over to ff8888 for now, but it looks a bit dark compared to the others. Perhaps ffcaca would be better? What do you all think? You can see it with the whole lot over at Adrielle. Edit: Added current jade frontrunner color set, that background could use lightening as well. --Guppymomma 12:52, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
I agree with ff8888 looking too dark now that I see it in play. I'm almost wondering if the Jade background is too dark too. For Crimson I think ffcaca would work better.
Okay, check Adrielle again and see what you think. I've lightened up both. I had to change the shade of the jade one a bit because it was a tad on the blue side. --Guppymomma 22:46, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Looks much better. -- Cedarwings (talk) 22:58, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
