Electric blue[edit]

Can we have a proper page on this please, and listing in this template, as it is referenced so often in popular culture?84.64.81.150 13:32, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Baby blue[edit]

Is there a way to put baby blue next to Azure where it belongs, since the list is alphabetized? Ianthegecko 16:52, 23 February 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but it looks like it's already been done. Jimp 02:12, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Moving to Variations/Varieties of ...[edit]

It has been suggested that Category:Shades of organge be moved to either Category:Variations of organge or Category:Varieties of organge. Where this move to go through all Shades of ... categories and their associated templates should also be moved. The discussion is here. Jimp 02:12, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

umm just out of curiosity what color is 'organge'? Nar Matteru (talk) 03:36, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Rail blue[edit]

Should Rail blue be added to this template? Thryduulf (talk) 23:09, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Cougar blue[edit]

This exists in the template, but redirects to a university page. Should it be removed? Metao (talk) 05:34, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

The university page doesn't even seem to mention "Cougar blue" and just list the colors as dark blue. Removing. PaleAqua (talk) 09:10, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Ice blue[edit]

Is there really such a color, or a shade of blue, called ice blue? If such a shade of blue truly exists, I think we should add it to this "Shades of blue" template. The Utah Jazz & the Atlanta Thrashers both use it as one of their primary colors, so why can't it be added to this template or the "Variations of blue" section?

Other blues probably worth adding[edit]

Oxford blue, Saxe blue, kingfisher blue Could all be added. Rod57 (talk) 15:04, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

St. Patrick's blue[edit]

As the St. Patrick's blue article states, there is a wide variety of colours that have had the name. I think using any one of them, even with a "representative only" caveat, is misleading. jnestorius(talk) 11:27, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Yale Blue[edit]

Yale Blue is in the template but does not show up. Is there a maximum of 50 entries? BrianS36 (talk) 05:14, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

I only hard coded 50 entries when I first created the {{Shades of color}} template that this template uses since most color templates had about 20~30 entries at the time and I figured 50 was more then enough room. I've put some fixes together to expand that limit but the template is protected so it may not happen immediately. PaleAqua (talk) 14:35, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done: Should be fixed now. PaleAqua (talk) 05:23, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

The missing shade of blue[edit]

The Missing Shade of Blue is, well, a shade of blue. This category is for ... shades of blue. How is my inclusion of a serious Wikipedia article in a category it fits violating any WP guideline? 271828182 (talk) 21:26, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Because unlike all the other entries on this template, the article isn't about a colour. The Missing Shade of Blue is an article about a concept in philosophy/cognitive science.
If you read the article it's clear that it is not about a shade of blue, but any shade of any colour (or any other single element in any graduated series of colours, objects, sounds, or anything else that that one can perceive with one's senses) that one has not been exposed to previously.
It is simply saying that even if one has been exposed to every shade of blue but one that you can conceive of that shade of blue existing without having been exposed to it. The "missing shade of blue" could be Cornflower blue, navy blue, emerald green, vermilion, a bell tuned to E♭, even (if I am understanding it right) an Octahedron.

Wedgwood blue[edit]

Don't know if it is reason enough to include Wedgwood blue just because it is recognized by our sister site. hydnjo (talk) 00:49, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

Honolulu Blue[edit]

This template should include the Honolulu blue color used by the Detroit Lions.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 05:28, 4 October 2012 (UTC)
