The color referred to as "Shocking Pink" is not the same color as "Neon Pink". Neon pink is interchangeable with "Bright Persimmon" which will flouresce under UV light. Shocking pink is a darker shade of Hot pink. These two colors are classified differently in both print, and fashion. Any textile manufacturer will confirm the extreme difference of the two shades. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:54, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Support all for consistency, and because "shades" more clearly relates to colors. bd2412T 17:26, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
Support all: While shades has a specific meaning ( adding black / making the color darker, e.g. from wiktionary: "A variety of a colour/color, in particular one obtained by adding black (compare tint)." ), it also has the wider meaning of changes in hue etc. I believe I linked to a few dictionaries regards to this one of the previous times this topic came up several years ago. And spot checking online shows similar results. For example from Collins English Dictionary "a colour that varies slightly from a standard colour due to a difference in hue, saturation, or luminosity: a darker shade of green.".

If wanted to use painting terminology we should also add in hues, tones, etc. to that mix. Note the 2nd paragraph at the page that states "In common language, the term "shade" can be generalized to furthermore encompass any varieties of a particular color, whether technically they are shades, tints, tones, or slightly different hues."PaleAqua (talk) 00:43, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
Oppose. I would move the other way for consistency. Why use the potentially confusing/misleading "shades" when we have "variations"? Srnec (talk) 03:45, 1 March 2014 (UTC)
