|To-do list for List of colors: A–F, List of colors: G–M, and List of colors: N–Z:|
I see that some entries in this list have links which do not go to an article about a color but about something other than a color.
It is my understanding that the point of this list is not to come up with plausible colors for objects, but to identify names of colors. Thus, while it may be the case that the color selected for Ginger is a reasonable approximation of the color of ginger, the should not be an entry for Ginger in this list unless someone demonstrates that the term Ginger is used as a color. That seems plausible but without a link to a reliable source it should not be in this list.
Let me know if my understanding of the inclusion criteria have been debated and differs from my expectation.
I plan to look for such examples and remove them.
The list of planned removals so far:
- Lemon Lime
- Light Brilliant Red
- I'm rethinking ginger, given this, although it would be nice if someone added it to some article, such as Gold (color).--S Philbrick(Talk) 21:11, 22 May 2017 (UTC)
There appears to be a color with this name:
- I removed each of these six "colors"; none has a linked article or section. Two (ginger and Heart Gold) Might have that potential, but until then, they do no qualify.--S Philbrick(Talk) 17:49, 4 July 2017 (UTC)
At one time, there was a color with hex=#15F2FD.
It was linked to Loeen (color) which doesn't exist, and named Loeen(lopen), then changed to Loeen(lopen)look/vomit+indogo+Lopen+Gabriel then back to Loeen look.
Neon orange did have hex code 39FF14, which is clearly wrong because that's neon green. An IP editor attempted to change the hex code to FF6702 without updating the RGB HSV codes. I don't see any indication that the hex code corresponds to a named color but it certainly does not correspond to a named color for which we have an article. There may be a neon orange, possibly FD5F00, but not FF6702. Until someone takes the time to create the article or at least the section within the orange page for neon orange I'm deleting this entry.--S Philbrick(Talk) 00:46, 3 July 2017 (UTC)
