Inaccurate information.[edit]

The color referred to as "Shocking Pink" is not the same color as "Neon Pink". Neon pink is interchangeable with "Bright Persimmon" which will flouresce under UV light. Shocking pink is a darker shade of Hot pink. These two colors are classified differently in both print, and fashion. Any textile manufacturer will confirm the extreme difference of the two shades. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 166.40.13.3 (talk) 21:54, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: no consensus, so not moved. An identical (or at least massively overlapping) set of articles has been listed for discussion in at least 4 separate locations: Talk:Variations of brown, Talk:Variations of cyan, Talk:Variations of pink, Talk:Variations of gray.
Listing the same articles in multiple locations is totally contary to WP:MULTI, and disrupts consensus formation by fragmenting discussion.
I am therefore closing all 4 discussions as "no consensus", without prejudice to an immediate renomination of the same set in one location. Guidance on how to do so is available at Wikipedia:Requested moves#Requesting_multiple_page_moves, and I will be happy to help doing that if asked on my talk page. -- BrownHairedGirl (talk) • (contribs) 16:51, 4 March 2014 (UTC)



Variations of pinkShades of pink – All relevant articles should be unified as per as per discussion.

Most follow currently the "Shades of …" naming scheme anyway, so change the remaining "Variations of …".

  • Support all for consistency, and because "shades" more clearly relates to colors. bd2412 T 17:26, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Support all: While shades has a specific meaning ( adding black / making the color darker, e.g. from wiktionary: "A variety of a colour/color, in particular one obtained by adding black (compare tint)." ), it also has the wider meaning of changes in hue etc. I believe I linked to a few dictionaries regards to this one of the previous times this topic came up several years ago. And spot checking online shows similar results. For example from Collins English Dictionary "a colour that varies slightly from a standard colour due to a difference in hue, saturation, or luminosity: a darker shade of green.".

    See also my comments at Talk:Shades of black#Variations of vs shades of. after I reverted a move of that page to Variations of black. PaleAqua (talk) 18:34, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment Note that the lead of most of these articles state tints and shades, and infact links to the artice Tints and shades too. IE, shouldn't these be Tints and shades of brown, etc? Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 20:55, 26 February 2014 (UTC)
    If wanted to use painting terminology we should also add in hues, tones, etc. to that mix. Note the 2nd paragraph at the page that states "In common language, the term "shade" can be generalized to furthermore encompass any varieties of a particular color, whether technically they are shades, tints, tones, or slightly different hues."

  • Oppose. I would move the other way for consistency. Why use the potentially confusing/misleading "shades" when we have "variations"? Srnec (talk) 03:45, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.
