The card for taupe looks like dark grey, almost black. This isn’t even remotely what taupe should look like. There are a few cards like this.

I still haven't gone through them all, but I like it already. Although, I believe indigo and ultramarine have switched places?

There are also some other colors I decided to name differently based on some googling, but I think this is inevitable, as there is no supreme authority on naming colors (and I also wanted to translate as many of them as possible to my mother tongue).
As there are many diffent views on many of the shades it would be nice to know what source was used to compile this deck.

But I actually also think one's own light research should be encouraged to get some flesh over the bare bones of just the color + name. It's fun to get to know some little facts about the colors' history, name and what not, as they make the colors more meaningful to you. "Oh, this is the one the emperors boiled thousands of sea snails for" and so on. Of course best would be if you could make it somehow more personal like "that's the color of the sledge I had when I was a child". The cards could have an extra field for that kind of information, but I guess I can add it myself when I learn to use the app better.

Thank you for sharing your great deck!

This deck should be used as an exemplar for what can be done with an Anki deck.

When presented the color black, there is a text field underneath for you to type in "black". After doing so, it compares your typing to the answer and shows you how far off you were, spelling wise.

This is a truly excellent deck. Thank you!
