    Got a solid blue light. What does that mean? The car is uploaded.

    The taillights turned from red to blue?

    There are a lot of lights on the car, which one are you referring to?

    If the cable is inserted it means that the port is ready to receive electrons.

    Dark blue means, "charging is stopped and the car is locked and the port flap is open".

    What do you want to do next?
    A. Charge the car: I would close the flap and re-open it using the button on the cord, then plug it in.
    B. Unplug charge cord if it's plugged in: unlock the car from the fob, press the button on cord, pull it out.
    C. Drive if already unplugged: close the flap, get in and drive.

    I thought blue meant that everything was okay but the charge simply hadn't yet started because scheduled charging had been specified in the car's settings.

    Yup. That too.

    Hasn't started yet, or is finished. i.e. "not currently charging" is blue

    Yes, that basically indicates:
    1. It is plugged in
    2. It is not currently charging
    3. Everything is fine
