Colour Days
The Day is going ahead on The 23rd of every month. See here for details.

I know this sounds kinda childish, but I was browsing Cobalt Parley yesterday and I say a post about Lime Day it did very well, and I was thinking that it would be good to make a simmilar day for the Ice Ocean. I was thinking either Aqua or White day, but feel free to suggest one.

If we were to do this, it would come in the style of tourneys, events, and pillages, if not more. I cant think of anything else to say right now, but i'll edit with new ideas.

Re: Colour Days
I'm glad to hear that Lime Day is inspiring other color days as well! I'd be glad to help out by making tournaments on Ice for any other color if someone decides to start one.
Oh, and it's a shameless plug, but, come to Cobalt on January 16th for Lime Day!

Re: Colour Days
Sounds like fun to me. Maybe you should put up a poll to pick the color? My vote would be for purple! LOL

Re: Colour Days
Actually, I think I might go for Violet day. Or Atlantean day... :P
Here are the list of colours. I'm placing suggestions in Bold, and colours that would be silly to have striked. Feel free to argue for a striked one's case though.

Aqua
Black
Blue
Brown
Gold
Green
Grey
Lime
Maroon
Navy
Orange
Pink
Purple
Red
Tan
Violet
White
Yellow
Atlantean

My choice of date would be the 23rd of every month; one week after Lime Day, but feel free to argue for another date.

I'm choosing to rotate them. Here is the first go at a schedule.

December: Red (Santa)
January: White (Cold and Snow)
February: Pink (Valentine's Day)
March: Green (Spring)
April: Violet (Flowers)
May: Blue (The sky at the time)
June: Orange (Summer)
July: Maroon (Heat)
August: Navy (Gap-filler)
September: Purple (The colour I make my face go when I realise I have to go back to school.)
October: Aqua
November: Grey (The sky at that time)

What do you think? Its loosely based on Nordenx's post, but I changed it around a bit. The 23rd of the month sounds like a plan, but we could use a different base for the days, like the moon.

Edit: Changed Febuary's proposed colour from Yellow to Navy.
Edit: Corrected an error with black appearing where it shouldn't.

Edit: Once again i've looked over this and wanted to change it. Now Febuary can have pink and a date change so the events occur on Valentine's Day, and switches its Navy for August's Pink.
Edit: Pink and Navy appeared as the wrong colours.

Re: Colour Days
I prefer my pirate to wear certain colors for certain months or seasons...

I'm currently shifting from an all white (holiday) phase to an all red (new year) phase.

Halloweens are usually all black or black/orange/red for me...
Winter Holidays are usually all white or white/blue/green...
New Years are all red or red/yellow/white...
Valentines are all red or red/pink/white...
Spring is usually blues or greens or purple...
Summers are usually all tan or tan/white/gold...

Now, while I won't object to certain days (weekly) being a certain color day, it's just as long as it's not ever day having it's own color.

Yer gonna be dusting yer clothes quicker if ye do.

Re: Colour Days
The days will be monthly, and if it lasts that long, shift in a yearly schedule. Thanks for the Seasonal colours, i'll try and compile a list of colours for each month.

Edit: The colours for each month are now up on my SECOND post.

Alright then! The first of Ice's colour days will be January 23rd, and will be White Day! Make as many tournaments offering white stuff as you can on the day, and kick up the prodection of white cloths, enamels and paint. Be there or be square!

Re: Colour Days
Ta dah! A shiney new avatar for the upcoming Colo(u)r Days! My apologies to you non-American types for leaving out the "u" -- I merged the PhotoShop layers before I thought about making an avatar with "colour." Soz. (However, I did save it with some of the layers intact so I can change the date and color info next month. Wheee!)



(feel free to link to this at http://i57.photobucket.com/albums/g230/tkp42/jan23.jpg)

Ols, I really wanted to put your name on the graphic, but the text was just too small. Double soz.

Anyway, here's a tinyURL version of the link to this thread, just in case you'd like to sig it: http://tinyurl.com/228683

I'll be changing my avatar and sig after the new year. =)

Re: Colour Days
Thanks for doing that. I dont need my name on it, and "color" works just fine for now. (After all it is written like that in the client and on Yppedia.) I might put it as my Avatar, but in case it doesn't work, i'll just post it to the Event page.
