    Why havent we gotten undecided about names for the colours?

    How about one verb in front, using the letter following the word in the alphabet

    Sensing Red
    Player Orange
    Turn Yellow Zarathustrian Yellow, Zealot Yellow, http://www.yourdictionary.com/zenana
    Horse Green
    Contested Blue
    Unstable Purple Query Purple
    Xenophobic White
    Coprocessor Black
    Hegelian Gray, Helheim gray

    With silver-coating on the inside that would be awesome. Or a very shiny black coating, maybe?

    I asked for pedantry, and I got pedanted.

    I think what we need is adverbs

    Seemingly Red
    Plantably Orange
    Zeroic Yellow
    Handily Green
    Questionably Purple
    Xenophobically White
    Conoptical Black
    Hopelessly Gray
    Customarily Beige

    I have to say this one somehow appeals to me. It carries the implication that the colour is somehow unique to each unit. :)

    That worked when it was 'custom beige' but customary and custom have kind of the opposite meanings, despite I dare say having the same word roots. The latter suggests its by user choice, and therefore quite liable to being unique or at least rare, but the former suggests your neighbours* will have the same colour unit as you, because it basically mean by tradition.

    * Neighbours in this case might be people in your street, people in your village, your city, your state, your country your geological plate or your current planet.

    You need to reread the original posts. It's "customarily beige" not "customary beige".

    For some reason those both mean the same, the former possibly "customer"-like too, but that is a stretch

    The latter, can also be written "custumal".

    Which begs the question, what is the "made custom/special" adverb Customizingly, customatedly, unique, I don't know.

    Customized?

    "Custom beige" has me sold.

    True, that was lazy of me. However, I'm under the opinion that one of those words is derived from the other. One is an adjective and the other is an adverb I think, but I'll leave it to you as to which is which. On the other hand, 'custom' and words like 'customize' have pretty much the opposite meaning, as I was trying to say.

    Oh, for fuck's sake. Do I REALLY need to clear this up?

    From now on, all beige shall be known as cocksucker's beige. You're welcome.

    Sure they both have the same derivation but they still carry opposite implications in this context.

    One implies "This unit is the customary beige"
    the other implies "These units are customarily beige, but this one is special"
