How come some of the names are in red?

I've noticed that some of the names and text surrounding the avatars of some of the people in the forum are now in RED text. Why is that?

While I'd like to help support that line of reasoning for fun and giggles I'm pretty sure the names in red are folks that are currently online.

It means that you are "on-line".... Unless, you're posting in "invisible" mode, then you can be online and your name be in black.

In that mode, your name will not show up at the bottom of the page.

Mine isn't there.

The red folks are the one we like, as a result of the last secret "who do you like" Fox poll! Only folks with red get to vote.

It's like the refrigerator light. When you go offline, your screen name goes from red to black. Or does it...?

Unless your masking your online presence............eh DG.

Edit: by that I mean that if your exercise the option to not appear as an active user, your name will reamin black whether or not you are on line in the forum.

While at work and viewing while NOT logged in, all the names were in red.

Now, at home, and logged in, all the names are black.
