This is a page where you can claim a language-family colour for use with {{Infobox language}}. The template uses a code to choose what colour the infobox uses, but because the template is imported from Wikipedia all the codes are for natural languages. Below is a table showing all of the colours; simply pick a colour you like, put your username in the user column for the colour, what you want your code to be in the code column and save it. After that someone will come along and fix the other templates so that that colour works with your code. You will receive a PM through the wiki once this is done.

To use your code in a template, simply put this | familycolor = your code here in the appropriate space in the template.

For now, please do not add colours to the table, only the ones already provided are available. If we run out of colours, we will figure it out at that time. Please also do not change the completed column; it is purely to show whether or not the task has been completed and should only be changed by someone who has done it, changing it will not make it suddenly magically work.

Please note that this is "first come, first served". If you notice someone has already claimed a colour you really want, discuss it with the first claimer.
