My buddy told me about it - now I am permanently hooked. ♥

Catherine Reagan

While I'm trying to design a good Twitter profile. I found COLOURlovers and now it's where I interact most and find friends.

I had an app on "my" iPad called Paper for iPad. It had a limited number of colors to design with so I was looking on the developer website to see if there were plans to add more color options and another user suggested in a thread that they partner with ColourLovers to get colors into the app, so I clicked on the link and I haven't left since. . . I also no longer have "my" iPad as I finished development for the project I was using it for. . . but I'd like to add, I wish ColourLovers had an Android app, it would make my time on here on the go much less frustrating :)

I agree on the Android app suggestion!

I was searching for some colour ideas for my new room. I was just searching on Google for retro palettes, when I discovered CL. There were so much beautiful palettes out here, and I couldn't wait to join and try it by myself!

I was on Deviantart and a girl selling adoptables remarked CoulourLovers as a site where you can find beautiful colour palettes, I joined because I wanted to make my own and since then I'm unstoppable. D:

I'm a profesional Visual Designer and a friend from college told me about a website that offers tools for mixing colours for design. I checked it... and I fell in love it the site :D

I'm an artist and frequent character creator, I stumbled upon this website looking for superb color combinations - and boy did I find em! I've been addicted ever since. :)

The Android app Pattrn!

I started collecting patterns I liked so that the app would have something to chose from when changing my phone's walpaper everyday, and the next thing I knew, I had a CL account, and was colouring patterns of my own...

OrangePinkBlue

I found it through Tumblr. :P

Miss May

When I was researching color trends at my job... I was searching for new palettes, and so I began creating my own. Now you know the rest of the story... I'm a diehard CL now!

SkyWolf72

From Mweor. I was making designs of cats and someone recommended this site for color ideas.

TiffsArt

I will be honest I was messin around with my twitter account and loved to change my profile rather than mingle and to this day still don't quite understand twitter but am grateful to have found CL! I am addicted even my husband complains about having to compete with u guys :) anyway I will try to be more social in the future :)

Suzana_K

I was searching for design ideas for an Android app I was programming and a blog entry suggested palettes from CL using the official "Android" green. I used one of them and now I'm addicted :-)

sugartown

not sure but maybe by googling through web to find good color palettes..
since then, CL helps me a lot all the time!!

Jennafire

I literally stumbled upon it at a fantastic that is called "StumbleUpon".
I am gratefull to "stumbleUpon" for opening this door for me because COLOURlovers is hands down, my most favorite website!!!!

1. I don't care whether you support my campaign or not. Besides, thoughts of witch hunts, branding irons, welts, etc. are perverse, those pictures all come from you, I deny them. My ultimate rebuke, after a lot of explaining, and encouragement, tells someone I can't respect their actions because they violate my code of honor, after which I ignore them until they shape up. I don't go any further. So it's best you don't participate in the proposed action. If that is the way you think, I certainly would never hire you for faculty in a private school.

2. Damages in euros etc. I am not discussing. I'm talking about Art. Best practices, and originality. If someone doesn't care about those after mild and mannered discussion, when you confront them with date stamped proof of their actions, then I cannot further respect them as an artist. I'm free to speak my mind about that. That doesn't mean I want them to quit the site or go jump off a bridge, certainly not hang them. That just means I know how they behave going forward, and I'm free to form an opinion about them. People can form whatever opinion about me in return, based on my art, actions and deeds. I've worked hard to become an asset to this site. I like to think I have earned respect because of it. But I never count on it.

3. I don't care whether you could follow every minute of this discussion for two weeks. I don't care that my discussion about and endorsement of appropriate shame appears in a forum that appears around the world. That's what public forums are for. People should be able to speak their minds, right or wrong, and be able to freely make mistakes, or conversely, excellent points. When a topic has had no action for two weeks, you should understand it's a dead topic. If you revive it, you beat a dead horse, or you're trying to begin a new horse beating. I bet you didn't even look at the date. That is on you.

4. You are correct that memories attatched to shaming are carried for a long time, that is my point. "If my mother had caught me doing such a thing, she would have tanned my behind." "My old teacher would have had a heart attack." "My grandparents would be rolling in their graves." "My sister would have been so disappointed in me," etc. Those are generally good lessons, that we have internalized, admitted to, and grown past. Administered to us by people who care.

If you propose, I will support your shaming campaign so long as we can make branding irons, heat them up, and burn the imprints into the foreheads of those an angry mob decides are offenders.

Intellectual property claims, whether exact duplicates, are absolutely irrelevant given the nature of this site. Why in the world would you post things to a site like this hoping people, all over the world, would respect your rights? Some of them live in countries that do not have to by the way.

And how have you, save for your ego, been damaged by all this? You have lost millions of euros or dollars through plagarism on this site? Sorry, but you just seem too emotionally charged to be rational.

This is plain and simple, dangerous and stupid. Beyond that, as I have said before, you could really hurt somebody if you are wrong in your witch hunt. It is usually much to late to say sorry to someone when its over because, you know? They would be damaged goods from your crusade.

PS. Sorry I could not follow this discussion every minute for two weeks. Sometimes I have other places to visit and other sites on which to spend my time and attention. I really appreciated your observation though so I read all the comments over the two weeks. I think I am up to speed.

PSS. Shaming anyone builds the memories they will remember later; even if they survive the shaming, hazing, shunning or whatever you want to call it. Such encounters shape their lives and attitudes forever and always. They might forgive, but they will always remember.

If you are talking about me, I am flattered. I have never been called both at the same time as I remember. Thank you so much!

If you are done breathing fire out your nose, and can ever possibly calm down? Could you bring yourself to listen to those trying to help you in this? May I suggest something to you? With fire extinguisher in hand? And a dragon slayer on the roof of my condo building?

If you are not already a member, think about joining the Graphic Artists Guild. It is one of the best artists' rights orgs in the US. Members get all sorts of benefits including legal advice (to a point) in a pinch. Lots of pattern repeat designers are members. You might get more enthusiasm there but not for a shaming campaign.

That website is brilliant, Deslyn! Thank you for sharing it with us.

One website I use frequently is encycolorpedia.com. You might want to input your color there and then check out the pentadic or hexadic sections. This will give you different colors all around the color wheel that complement the original color in some way, and each color is of the exact same saturation and lightness levels, which is what I believe you're looking for. You would want to alter the "S" and "V", but not the "H". Here is an example of the color you gave here:
