As it happens, there is a way to change your color, but it seems to

but it looks like the Ministry of Cards changed hands at the same time
this passed, and the changes must've been lost in the shuffle. I'll
fix this later tonight.

Due to the statute of limitations, isn't the way the Public Display
has shown the cards all this time (at least since before I joined the
game, I think) the Authoritatively Correct state of the game, and thus
would require another Prop to change?

That's a very good point, and one that I wish had occurred to me before I tried to fix it and deleted the cards database instead.

Repairs are underway and they'll all be fixed fairly soon.

Ok, it's all good. I'm calling upon the powers of Executive Tidiness to put in the missing texts of the color cards, on the grounds that the way my repair scripts work it's actually easier that way.

The texts of the cards Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet, and Apple White are hereby Rectified to to read as p1936 said they should.
