    Doctor Q started posting in the color FF00FF 3 days ago (May 30).

    We all know Dr. Q well enough to know he has a very good reason, but he isn't divulging that information just yet, so it's up to us to figure it out.

    Any ideas?

    Nature likes symmetry, so we should too!

    Hmmm... it looks a bit like a "Q". :)

    It's true that I'm using this color because I like the hex pattern.

    What is siurpeeman up to with this color?

    To my eyes, his color looks the same as my color, but I know I can't really tell. DigitalColor Meter.app tells me they are quite different.

    They are quite different.
    Your is quite a bit brighter, and a far different shade of the spectrum.

    I see nothing wrong with POOF singing in the key of FF00FF.

    Symmetry is cool, and so is stylometry, which could be used to tell if my post is real or a forgery!

    Woah.... Deja Vu, man...:D...

    I been using purple since late February or early March, so I'm technically not a part of this.:)

    Also just noticed my brother has posted in this thread. :)

    Ooh, maybe we should argue about whether black is or is not a color. I say it is, since it's the same as dark red. :cool:

    If it's included in a box of crayons, it's a color. ;)

    If it's not, I've been paying way too much for printer cartridges just to add a non-color to the arsenal. :)

    Sorry, black isn't a hue (color); rather, it's a "achromatic color" (which is such an oxymoron). Either is white, sort of... White is a shade, but not a hue. White, can also be considered a achromatic color because after all, it's not a hue, only a shade. A shade, is in fact, the mixture of a color with black, while a tint is the mixture of a color with white.

    So the real question here is, since white is a shade, is black a tint?

    (This is what I get for using Wikipedia.)
