Anyone feeling creative?

There's a project trying to give names to all 16,777,216 colours in the RGB colour space.

Have a go, see if you can get some names accepted
https://colornames.org/

I've submitted names for some of the colours on the HPC:Factor Style Sheet.

https://colornames.org/color/1a7d00
https://colornames.org/color/0d110e
https://colornames.org/color/376b33
https://colornames.org/color/328892

As well as a few random ones
https://colornames.org/color/fb1bc4
https://colornames.org/color/4bae89
https://colornames.org/color/5c840f
https://colornames.org/color/f4e1ba
https://colornames.org/color/8e95ca

If you are feeling creative, submit your colour codes link and we'll see if they get accepted.

Are we doing this all by ourselves, or is anyone else in the world helping?

Technically doesn't that mean everything is grey for you? I dare you to invent 16 million names for grey

Then, of course, there's 'graydar,' the ability to spot an old person in public.

That's the American version, the Brits use Greydar for their old people.

GrAy for A-merica. GrEy for E-ngland. That is how I remember it.

It must be hard in life when literally everything is 50 Shades of Grey

And how do you explain this behaviour/behavior? I really could use your advise/advice. Though in your defence/defense I recognize that the British versions of English came first.

Behaviour/Behavior is the same as Colour/Color. Lazy colonists; too lazy to pay their darn taxes and write words properly.

Advise & Advice are two different words. Advise: Rich advised Chris that he thought he would have to go away in June. Advice: Rich gave Chris some good advice.

Defence/defense, but never defencive/defensive. Always defensive.

Aluminium and Aluminum. That one is easy to spot though because unlike the above, we pronounce them completely different. Al-you-min-i-um vs. Al-oo-min-um.

I tried one name, https://colornames.org/color/992222 as DignifiedRed . Let's see if that gets accepted. Maybe I needed a space in between? oh well.

None of mine have been yet. I think they need moderators for their project.
