Hey everyone... I kinda need help with colors. I can't really think of colors for most of the other elements. I can get a couple of colors together, and I'll go ahead and make the pages for all of them. But.. I'm open to suggestions. 1 and 2 are lighter shades, with 2 being lighter than 1, and 3 is the darker shade, used mostly for borders. Thanks for any help, feel free to experiment with them. ~ dkpat 18:58, 23 May 2011 (CDT)

Well, I doubt I'd fair much better than you at picking colors, but if you want my opinion: A) There's too much contrast between Jupiter 1 and 3; either make 1 darker or 3 lighter, maybe even both. B) Mars 1 looks more pink than red, and Mercury 3 seems a bit too dark. They might be workable, but just seem... off, to me at least. C) More than anything else, you have to fix Venus 3. It's brown. Venus is represented by yellow. I can understand a "dark" yellow, but the current color? No. Just no. The World's Hungriest Paperweight 20:02, 23 May 2011 (CDT)
Really, I don't take offense to any of that. I was just using the colors straight from the main page. Which were taken from the older main page (mostly.. might have been a few new ones) Since I'm here, let me explain a bit about this. I'm trying to implement a system that will allow us to say that the infobox is "Venus" element, and the colors will change entirely based on that. I think this would be a great way to add a level of customization to the wiki, and immediately give the reader an idea of the element of what they are reading about. ~ dkpat 21:59, 24 May 2011 (CDT)
Ah, now I see what you mean. I guess the #3 colors wouldn't take up much space... Anyways, I like the sound of your idea, so why don't we focus on actually getting it to work. We can wait and change the colors after we find out what they would look like in-use ;) P.S. Should we establish some kind of "non-elemental" colors?

It's really kinda easy. takes a bit of work, but it's not too bad. I'll port over a Djinn Template I've got and show you. ~ dkpat 16:08, 26 May 2011 (CDT)
