This is a similar challenge as Cx3 except the colour is randomly generated by anyone, a new coulor can be submitted everyday and IF words are encourage to be used as inspiration.

The Daily challenge uses CST time


HOW TO PLAY IFRC

>> See also How to submit a new colour

1) Use the random color
The latest random color is the last submitted color to this group thread:
Scroll down and click the latest page. The latest color submission should be visible there or on the previous page.

Optional but advised, you can also

> Add the IFRC tag - so this may show up in the group highlights and on my page - to all palettes and patterns using the RC color( because tags enable to search & sort RC palettes)
This even if you create a pattern using someone else's RC palette.

Tag input areas are available in all editors (click image view in big -if you can't see the image try this one)
NB: Only items tagged IFRC will be used for the group highlights & special gallery

> Add the IFRC badge, you can find the badge code on the color page of the day - This badge contains all the important links you may need - eg: Clicking on date leads to the RC of this group thread

> Post the palette badge to the group page (screenshot of where to get the palette badge Video: How to post badge and embed images)



ANYRC


Late submissions: Once a new colour is submitted, items created using the previous day's colour can no longer be submitted to the group page.
Late submissions and any items created using passed RC colours can be submitted here and tagged ANYRC + the other tags (tags are comma separated)




PRIZES


There are no winners of course but palettes, patterns and colours with the highest score may sometimes receive a virtual badge like this

SUBMITTING A NEW IFRC COLOR



Any member can submit a new color every 24h CTS - starting from 00:01 CTS
Time is calculated according to CST time, this clock:

Panama, Chicago are CTS - see time in Chicago)
What Time is CTS for me?
Here's a world map with time zones: TimeTicker - in the bottom right menu select U.S.A./Central U.S.A.


1) First check to see if someone has all ready grabbed a daily color - day starts at 00:00 to 23:59

2A) If there's a color - too late! Try again tomorrow!

2B ) If there's no colour, go grab a random color... or a colour with a cool name
If the random colour does not exist, create it and try to give it an inspiring name (see about colour names below)
and tag it IFRC
PS: You may want to check out the previous day's colours

3) Get the colour's badge (see how to get the badge below)

4) Post the colour to the RC challenge group thread, here. - straight away before you create your palette or else others may submit an other one.

More IFs...
- If the colour is yours, please tag it IFRC. This so they show up in search results.

- If 2 colours are submitted at the same time, like it happened here, it's the first posted comment that counts.

- If a colour is posted too early, it's considered non valid



ABOUT COLORS NAMES


Very quickly it turns out that colour names are important - If the name isn't inspiring, there won't be many submissions.
Try to name the colour with something inspiring - See past RC colour names

Optionally IFRC and IF-words can be combined by choosing a name related to the actual IF-word

I think names that can be used for story palettes can be specially fun - like the colour "Sing Me praises" inspired many palettes & story palettes


If the random colour you fell on already exists but does not have an interesting, inspiring name, try getting a free colour by changing the last letter of the hex code.
Also please avoid controversial names & delicate subjects such as politics and religion.


MAKING THE IFRC BADGE


Making the badge and suggesting an image are optional.
But you are welcome to do it!

See how to update the IFRC badge code

ABOUT THE IMAGE ON THE IFRC BADGE
It's is advised to upload a copy of the image here at CL, the colour pages enable to do this.
See how to download an image and upload it here at CL


How to get the colour badge:


To get the color badge just type this url followed by the Hex code
www.colourlovers.com/color/hexcode

GOOD QUESTION! =D
In the badge code you can see
style="width: 240px; height: 120px; border: 0 none;"

That's the size, this comment block is 2px too narrow for 2 badges!!
(important: with no space between them)

So you can change it to
style="width: 239px; height: 120px; border: 0 none;"

or even
style="width: 50%;" <- 50% of the width of it's container.
If you remove the height, the browser will automatically calculate it's proportion.

...and at CL images have no border by default - that part is for incase you post outside CL, so you don't need it here (Good to know because comments here have a max character limit)

PS: wrote a 'How to embed & resize images" for CL - Tried to make it the simplest as possible

ycc2106

I used size: 50% here - I also made the code the shortest as possible.
If you click "Reply" you can see the code
