Wikipedia:Don't be afraid to use color
|This essay contains the advice or opinions of one or more Wikipedia contributors. Essays are not Wikipedia policies or guidelines. Some essays represent widespread norms; others only represent minority viewpoints.|
|This page in a nutshell: Don't be afraid to use a little color, but keep color accessibility for potential colorblind readers and other Wikipedia policies in mind.|
Sometimes on Wikipedia you will come across editors who like to keep the use of color to zero if possible in the name of "professionalism". But don't let that stop you from suggesting the use of color in line with Wikipedia policies. Color is not the enemy of professionalism but it's sidekick.
The use of color breathes life in to articles if done right. It doesn't harm them, again, if done right.
This is not saying go crazy and use rainbow colors throughout the article. This is saying use common sense and use color to enhance an article, but not detract.
Wikipedia's goal is the text of the article, but it doesn't hurt to enhance the article with color. So don't be afraid to suggest it in appropriate places.
