Organize by colour[edit]

I think it would be much better if the template were organized by color rather than alphabetically. Stale Fries 04:40, 9 January 2007 (UTC)

I second that, and other colour shades could be the same. It could go from light and unsaturated to saturated and dark.
I'd like to see this too, however, do we go from and unsaturated to saturated and dark or do we organise by hue? If the template were big enough, of course, we could do both: go from light/saturated to dark/unsaturated on the left-right axis and go from greenish to bluish on the top-bottom axis. This would also apply to other colour templates too. Jimp 03:21, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
... On second thoughts, why not? I s'pose it doesn't matter that this one is small: this is but one of the templates & others are big enough. Jimp 03:28, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

Automatic inclusion into category[edit]

Does adding this template to a page automatically add it to the shades of cyan category? Because the page for category: shades of cyan includes itself as a sub category

Yes, it does, but I've adjusted these templates to allow for this automatic inclusion to be turned off. If you want the template on a page without having that page listed in the category, use {{shades of cyan|nocategory=yes}}. Note that this works of all shades of ... templates. Note also that it doesn't have to be yes: you could use y, 1, X, or any character. Jimp 03:21, 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 03:21, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

why not a subset of blue & green?[edit]

Since cyan is a subset of blue in English, why are the colors in this template not a subset of 'shades of blue'? Several, such as cyan itself, appear neither in that chart nor in 'shades of green'. And the colors which are included do not form a coherent unit. kwami (talk) 08:05, 24 December 2008 (UTC)
