Hard to see

I don't know about other folks' monitors, but this light shade of brown is super hard to see on the white for me. I would suggest hex 663300 as brown instead of F2DEB8:

This is better!

Than this!

Edit: The place I go for figuring out hex colors is here: I just picked what looked like a nice dark brown from their default palette.

I made it a little darker, but not so dark that it would get confused with darkorange.
Version 1
Version 2

That is a bit better... I still think it looks light. I'll check on other monitors at home. Testing my version next to dark orange to compare now (edited to add version 2):
I don't think they're similar at all. *shrug*. Very appropriate together for the fall season, though.

Well it looks better on a different monitor here at work, although version 2 looks a lot closer to dark orange IMO than the brown I suggested. Felderburg 17:41, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Two cents from a colorblind person: This looked black to me at first glance. I had to look close to realize it was another color. This is so light as to be hard to see. This I can see is non-black and is readable, though slightly lighter than I'd prefer. I think I'd prefer something somewhere between this and this. How about this? (I don't know if it's brown or orange, but it's close to mid-way between the other two colors using HSL.) -- Sekoia 21:41, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Looks pretty orange to me. I kind of feel bad for making a mountain out of a lightly colored mole hill. Felderburg 15:32, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
Nothing to feel bad about. I don't think anyone's angry or anything. Just playing with crayons. :D -- Sekoia 17:09, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
I think I'd like to leave it as the Version 2 example listed above as it preserves the spirit of the in-game formatting while avoiding the pseudo-black and pseudo-orange options. When put into context, it works pretty well. Blondeshell Sig.png talk / contribs 20:39, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
