Anyone have any opinions on whether this article should be here or at Lime (color)?? Georgia guy 23:54, 29 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Anyone notice this??[edit]

Here's an interesting thing about Wikipedia's color sequence:


The colors in the range from scarlet to gold look sort-of-orange when I view the screen with my eyes on the bottom of the computer, but sort-of-yellow-green when my eyes are towards the top, and the exact opposite is true of lime. Georgia guy 23:16, 29 May 2005 (UTC)

And what else?? When I look at spring green, it looks sort-of-sky-blue towards the top. Georgia guy 23:19, 29 May 2005 (UTC)

And when I look at Persian blue, it looks somewhat redder than violet when my eye goes towards the top. Isn't all this funny?? Georgia guy 23:21, 29 May 2005 (UTC)

And still one more thing: when I look at the color circle about saturation, it looks black when I view it with my eye at the bottom, and white when my eye is towards the top. Georgia guy 22:25, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

Some LCD flat screen monitors display the effect of apparent color change depending on viewing angle, with viewing it from higher or lower angles most strongly effecting those changes. CRT monitors generally never have that problem. If you really want to see a full blooming of that problem, tilt your LCD viewing of an RGB gamut map, like one here [1] or one there [2]. Study LCD light polarization and RGB gamut articles for further details. Samuel Erau (talk) 04:20, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Main image[edit]

We should change the main picture of infobox. --Extra999 (talk) 14:32, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Multiple "Lime" pages[edit]

Some of the (current) items listed in the section "Lime in human culture" seem more appropriate for one or more of the other "Lime" pages; for example, the item on "Limey" is a reference to Lime (fruit) rather than Lime (color). (talk) 15:35, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

I removed three items for that reason. Rojomoke (talk) 06:58, 19 April 2013 (UTC)
