Cream is more rosy.

How much did that colorimetry course cost and how long did it take, Jaz? You know if they have something like that in Holland by any chance?

You guys seeing dark grey must be on crummy (and really darkly calibrated) pc monitors, IE: the average PC monitor.

I'd call it Khack green (or shit green), meaning dusty or brown green (persian) and combined with the shades of brown elsewhere on the page and the little himalayas images its getting very 'young Indiana Jones in the foreign legion' (RIP River Phoenix )

I like the change. And I'd call it greeno-brownish dark gray.

I am using a flatscreen monitor, and it is calibrated to a high illumination (what is the correct term?). It is set on 80 %. To test if it had anything to do with the calibration, I changed it to 100 % illumination, and it is STILL darkish grey. Maybe a bit slate-grey (which is blueish grey), but not very much.

It's persian, yes - but origianlly it came from the Urdu language, which comes from India.

It means dust covered or earth coloured. It doesn't actually have green in it - just the military version, which is quite different has green in it.

Apparently it was originally a name of a type of cloth.

The Colour Khaki (with sample)


Also, I recommend this article at "World Wide Words". The other articles are also very interesting - The subheader of the site is "Michael Quinion writes about international English from a British viewpoint"
His writing style makes the topics really interesting, and makes you want to read more.

It's actually the color of red. Red like the blood of my enemies! Muwahahahahahaaa!!!

Just kidding. My enemies don't have any blood anymore.

Just kidding again.

It's a gray-green. Maybe gray-teal. We can make up a name and call it "Blue Steel". Or "Magnum".

Alright you bastards ...

Take a screenshot, use the eyedropper tool on the background color. Then click on the color and, assuming you have the default RPG color picker, you will see a palette of green.

It's dark green. It may be something else on your monitor, but the official canonized AG-approved version of the color is, indeed, dark green.

I actually considered doing that. But it seemed like too much effort to confirm something I already knew in my heart to be true. I was just being a little silly.

By the way, how DO I take a screenshot, and where does it go?

You can take a screenshot by pressing the Print Screen -button on your keyboard. The image goes to your clipboard.

The clipboard? That's brilliant! thanks And here I was worried that I might fill up my hard drive if I accidently pressed "Prt Sc" a million times.

It's not, actually. When I do this (and I did it yesterday ), the color that comes up in the color picker is #333333, which is gray. It's not the same color that shows up in the source code (which does have a green color palate). Oops, but I'm not using the RGB color picker... maybe that makes a difference?



The background color you're using (#282e22) is not listed in Photoshop as a "web color," so it seems it's converting to the closest web color (#333333) when it displays. Beyond that I don't really understand how all this color stuff works.

For grins, here's the color palate I get when I plug in the color in the source code:



Definitely green, but this is not the color that's displaying in my browser.

It is. I took a screenshot of your screenshot and the background color is R 40, G 46, B 34.

The color might be different because Internet Explorer sometimes uses dithering. Or maybe it uses dithering only with images, I can't remember. Anyway, have you considered Firefox?

Hey, Firefox even has a color picker extension!

Weird.

I get the same thing (333333 instead of 282e22) in Safari, too.

I have not bothered with Firefox (even though everyone keeps telling me to) because thus far the browsers I'm using have worked okay, and I'm lazy.

Well, it's green for me and I use Internet Explorer.

What's your colour depth? The hexadecimal colours #xxxxxx in the web are for 24-bit, so if you only have 8-bit colour depth (265), it'll have to adjust it.

But I guess that won't be it, either, because then wormsie couldn't have taken a screenshot of the screenshot and... um... yeah. You get the point...

*broods*

As a side-note, I preferred it white.

It was never white, it was beige. I preffered it beige to.

Also, if i view the monitor from an angle, the colour looks lichen-green. But only slightly.
