It seems as thought there is much variation within members of the forum and their naming of crested colors and patterns. I suggest this method to keep eveything standardized. C/PC/Pattern Where C is the dominant side color (base color), PC is the pattern coloration (i.e. an animal with a yellowish fire, or yellow tiger markings, yellow harlequin, etc. would all have Yellow as their PC) and P is the pattern. For instance, a chocolate brown crested with a tan fire pattern would be named Chocolate/Tan/Fire or a grey harlequin with orange harlequin markings would be called a Grey/Orange/Harlequin.
Let me know if you think this will work, feel free to point out any problems with this system or make suggestions on how it could be improved.
