what is the greenraven you're talking about? 

Oh. I get it.

The anti-greenraven agenda of the PJ administration has never been more transparent.

 Just to clarify - even though the max dimensions are in a 2x1 ratio, a 120x120 piece would still qualify, correct?

Yeah. The common sense is always good. We are not lawyers after all. 

I have been waiting for a challenge where I can focus on drawing a tree. So I will definitely participate in this one.

I think that, as always, you should avoid trying to find loopholes and just use your common sense! ;)

imo if it looks green by itself you shouldn't use it, but at a very low saturation it's hard to tell hue anyway.

using a colour which is perceptually green is fine.

if you want to be super safe, just stay outside of this:

But yeah, just obey the spirit of the challenge and you will be fine.

 I would assume any color that by itself or in combination with other colors creates the effect of green is forbidden. 

Muxaun (Level 4 Deputy) @ 11/4/2013 01:13

What kind of green color is meant? Does it mean all colors with G component higher than R or B components?

Is this color green: http://imageshack.us/a/img268/929/751r.png?

What if accidentally use green color in hue-shifted browns?
