Where was the information on the Chorma article collected from?

Link

It states the following:



Color First seen Obtained from
Atlantean release 2009-12-08 Atlantis, trading posts
Banana Banana Box Madness Promotion Gold boxes (June)
Black release 2010-03-09 black boxes
Chocolate Chocolate Mystery Box Promotion Gold boxes (October)
Gold release 2010-03-09 black boxes
Ice blue Winter Mystery Promotion Gold boxes (February)
Indigo release 2009-12-08 Cursed Isles, trading posts
Night blue release 2010-08-24 Haunted Seas, trading posts
Plum Plum Mystery Box Promotion Gold boxes (August)
Sea green release 2010-01-20 Trading posts
Spring green Spring Surprise Promotion Gold boxes (April)
Wine Harvest Celebration Promotion Gold boxes (December)

I thought Chocolate was available on February (for St. Valentine Day), Ice blue in December (Chrismtas) and Plum for October (Early Thanksgiving)

The months are specifically referencing gold boxes. That information is found here: http://yppedia.puzzlepirates.com/Official:Gold_Box#Seasonal_Colors

The promotions (in which the chromas are given out) are in the other months - i.e. March, May, July, September, et cetera, the ones in which the gold boxes aren't available. I suspect this isn't entirely accidental. =P

I pondered if it was worth noting which month's promotion gives out which colour, but it doesn't always seem to be the same from year to year - for example, July 2011 gave plum, but July 2010 gave banana. My other idea is to just write "promotions" without specifiying which. It's more informative (and less have-to-edit-the-page-every-month) than "not currently available" which was there previously.
