    Your name = a color? Probably

    Post by skarekrow13 on Wed May 01, 2013 12:40 pm

    So in regard to forum text colors....


    Many of you likely know can you use the text color option with either the hex (I think it's hex) coding (ex. 00aa33) or it will recognize some words. So earlier today I decided to see if there was an official color of "Skarekrow" so I entered that into the field and....


    Lo and behold! This is the official color of the word "Skarekrow!" As this and the next sentence show, it is a different shade than the forum's default "green." Also, adding the "13" leads to an invalid code but no one uses that anyway.

    Also, to check to make sure that there isn't another default, here's the official colors for:

    My abbreviated first name
    My full first name
    My middle name
    My wife's first name
    My daughter's name
    My stepdaughter's first name
    Tarkus
    Solaire
    Gwyn
    Seath
    Pinwheel

    If you want to find out your color all you have to do is type [co lor=thenameyouwannacheck] type something here...whatever floats your boat then[/color]

    *note, I added a space in the word "color" in the first set of brackets so the forum didn't think I was trying to color my text "thenameyouwannacheck" so make sure you don't add that space. For the record, "thenameyouwannacheck" shows up as this right here



    Spoiler:
    Yeah, I know this is grasping at straws as to relevance to Dark Souls but I originally posted in the Archives section where traffic is lower. It's also awesome Tarkus' official color is BLACK IRON

    EDIT: Added a couple more names

    ICEFANG, that's awesome it turned out to be your favorite.

    I was pretty amped up to see that my forum name seems to be identical to my abbreviated first name and my full first name

    Every time I used the word "my" I changed the color to the corresponding name. On my screen I can't tell the difference. For a comparison of how weird that seems to me the three words are:
    skarekrow (obviously)
    Jeff
    Jeffrey

    Apparently I'm dark blue. Too bad, rather unexciting!

    Real name is the same color. Hmph

    Demon...pretty fitting. Brighter than your sig but right ballpark at least.


    Dark blue boring? Tell that to Artorias and his cape....speaking of which

    Artorias has apparently been taken by the Abyss in color as well

    Edit: off to change the link in my sig to "Artorias purple"

    Bonus color gremlin


    Edit Edit: Demon....did you change your sig to match your name color? I could've swore it used to be a darker red in there.

    That's awesome....I like when there's happy coincidences. I gotta say I love this idea and it's hard to hold back from a long list of NPC, location and item names so I'll just do a few more here to hold me over

    Best colour
    Worst colour (Hey, my name does not have the worst colour!

    Sub-par colour (Not much difference!)

    I wonder, why are "Worst colour" and "Sub-par colour" so similar?

    I would imagine that, if there's not a corresponding color the forum recognizes (for instance, "red" is recognized as red) that the word you use is converted similar to the hex (is it hex, someone tell me if I'm wrong) coding. So using a similar word would likely have a similar translation into the coding.

    Now in American English we'd say
    Best Color
    Worst Color
    and Sub-Par Color

    This is hex coding, it is pretty much identical to the coding I see when hacking items in, which is hex coding.

    Also, the only difference was for "Best color", so I think you really hit the nail on the head with similar words matching up.

    Maybe this can be the new April Fool's game, where we try to find the colour's for a load of similar words? big grin

    Glad I got it right. All I knew was the game genie on the NES took advantage of hex coding and used the 0-F concept of increasing variables.....
    That could be a frustrating and very fun April Fool's game

    Nybbles, it's interesting that green is coming up a lot but a LOT of different shades.

    That color is called Hachouma I believe

    Of course it would be red. silly

    It would make for a good April Fool's game, albeit, extremely long, taxing on the mind, and requires a ton of patience, but still, we are fans of this series for a reason. big grin

    The only problem with the game is that by the time I'm done with this thread, there'll likely be a codex of terms and their colors.....

    Might as well finish the knights:

    Gough
    Ciaran
    Ornstein

    Smough for good measure
    Artorias again so they can all hang out together.

    Now if the admins/mods went with non-Dark Souls words we'd be in for it.

    Like Buffalo Wings

    Yeah. I thought it was crazy getting three shades of gray/almost black out of 5 and the other two are similar shades to each other, with Artorias the more Abyss like purple with Ciaran kinda "following" his lead. That's it.....I'm calling it....from named all their characters based on hex coding so we'd never know the real deal.

    Random words would be awesome for sure....it'd be near impossible without a hint though. Like this year with the ads or something.

    Cake

    I like artificial cherry flavoring but not the actual fruit for some reason. Chocolate cake is good
