Colour Guide

Colour Guide

Colour Guide

This guide was originally started by me to allow me to try and keep some consistency in the colours of my reputation levels.

I stole a few colours from people (by eye) if they fitted my system and I liked them and now I've decided to publish it, I hope those people don't mind. Credit in the guide.

This system is far from perfect, and there are a few near clashes. I hope it will help people with picking colours, though.

PS, if you haven't already, have a browse of Jame's Guide Writing Guide, and download the firefox formatting toolbar!



    If anyone thinks they have a better shade of any of the colours listed below, please comment Smiling

    And also if you think you have something that matches the colours shown here better than mine.

    I can't say I would recommend using ALL these codes in one guide. A reputation guide would probably want the reputation colours. A class guide would want skills and talents. A levelling guide would want Jame's formatting, and possible Manovan's Profession and the class colours.

    If you want to add a colour table (or just one colour) copy the code here and stick it in the top of your guide, so people can see what you're using.
