I'm interested in becoming a participant in the anti-purple movement, and I'm wondering exactly which range of hues are deemed off limits, and if there are any exceptions or special considerations for any other ranges.

If you could please update the following diagram, I would appreciate it.

Well, regardless of which specific hues are classified as purple, given that Purple is a combination of Blue & Red, you'd have to remove both of those to prevent the creation of purple. In which case everything would simply be a single shade of bright green.

Image

Actually, no, it'd be 256 shades of green ranging from black through bright green.

Actually I think it would be all yellow, you can't have green without blue!

Well, are we talking an RGB or CMYK Palette?

naw, I'm hoping that we can just eliminate everything from magenta proper to pure red and in the other direction to pur blue.

Otherwise, I ain't joining.

RGB, of course, screen media must take precedence.

Here you go, CMYK Colour range - of course, now it would only be a YK colour range, but think how much cheaper ink will be.

Image

The reason the RGB palette would just be shades from black to bright green is that RGB is designed for the screen, which is black without light.

The CMYK palette is printed on white, so you would get everything from white to full yellow, then full yellow to black from the black. Of course, you would also get every greyscale shade from black to white also. :)

I would like a complete hexidecimal listing of the colors from the 32bit spectrum that are to be exempt from the current 32bit spectrum.

Well, they would be from a 24Bit spectrum in RGB. The extra 8 bits is for transparency (like the way you can have a gradient of fading solid colour to transparent in a PNG, or a PSD layer).

I think you should should just give us the web-safe pallete hex's as a condensed refernce guide.

btw:whatlikesit12345
Are you sure you have the authority create the officially documented spec on the fly?

Well, you're a new convert to the movement, and I want to be sure that the color values you give me are accurate.

But are those colors really what your leader wants to be removed from the spectrum?

And web-safe colours isn't even the 24Bit RGB palette, let alone the entire visible spectrum.

Are we only supposed to be removing banned web-safe shades of purple? Barney won't be happy.

I am a bit confused, simply because the "magenta" still visible in the spectrum is off by a very very minute RGB level from the one in your signature.

Ahhh. I think I see now. This is a far narrower group of restricted hues than I anticipated.

I'm now waivering on supporting the movement due to an overall lack of militantism within the purple-hating community. I just can't get behind a movement that would define #FE00F6 (R=254,G=0,B=246) as a non-purple.




:P :lol:
