[bug] bgcolor mapping for guild tabards

Community Platform API
Post Limit:
I noticed that the color mapping in the API for some of the guild tabard background colors seems to be slightly incorrect for certain background colors.

I have had to remap these background colors (as retrieved from the guild API) so that they show the correct background color for the tabards:

#9e0036 to #570000
#b1002e to #710B00
"backgroundColor":"ff232323"

the first 2 characters are used in the alpha of the tabard color if that helps..
They were all FF from memory though...
you could be rite ... i use a function to convert to rgb then use the 3 parts to do the color and mine are usualy correct in color...
Blood Legion is a good example:

http://us.battle.net/api/wow/guild/illidan/blood%20legion

Emblem Background color from the API is:

"backgroundColor":"ffb1002e"

Strip off the FF as 100% alpha, you get #b1002e

If you use #b1002e as the background color then it comes out quite different to what is shown on http://us.battle.net/wow/en/guild/Illidan/Blood%20Legion/

Looking into the Javascript for the battle.net page, it renders the color as #710B00

Hence, it looks like the API mappings are inconsistent with what is shown on battle.net

lol @ "slightly incorrect". Choosing a dark blue background is giving me a sickly pale blue the instant I close the vendor window, with some hideous pale brown symbol like a logo down the bottom of the tabard (?!?!).

I've now spent around 100g doing a 'rinse, repeat' just to make sure I was doing it right.

As for the rest, I have absolutely no idea what any of your are talking about re: how to fix the problem.

Can I have it in the 'for dummies' version please?
Arani, this forum is for discussion of the Community Platform API. It has nothing to do with in-game bugs.
id like a blue to weigh in on this for a little explanation>< for at least give us the canvis color index numbes in the api that are on the guild pages in the source code
Front end does have their own color mappings that don't match what's in the database for these guild emblems. I will ping them and the game team and see if I can get the correct values added to the API.
Contrary to what I originally posted, I think the API values are actually correct and match the in-game colors - it is that the battle.net mappings (in the javascript) are incorrect.

Take this example:

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/guild/Saurfang/Australis/

The tabard is shown as a brown color, but the in-game is more of a pink/purple as shown here:

http://www.guildox.com/wow/guild/us/Saurfang/Australis

I have used the API background color on GuildOx and it looks correct.

Hope that helps.
