Red star is the old member ship.
Yellow shirt is ti membership which includes more features than ti.
The eagle is the Sheldon Brown memorial, which shows that you have donated to a charity.
Blue stars are moderators
Three blue stars are Forum Administrators.

thanks. this is something i've been wondering for a while now. so if i got a membership now (whether 1 or 2 years) it would be the yellow shirt, right?

And if you want get a Ti membership, here's the link. http://www.bikeforums.net/payments.php On there it tells you all the goodies you get. :thumb:
Sooo....maybe make this a sticky in this forum? I did a search and found several threads about it; took me 5 mins of searching manually before giving up and searching. Seems like a pretty valid question, and non-obvious. Kinda makes it more insular, too--less welcoming--to have these arcane icons that only the folks in the know know about.
