User Names

Why is my name in red, and other's are in black? Am I on some sort of terrorist watch list or something? Is it a warning? "listen buddy, you're already on the red list, one more stupid post and you're done..."

You smell bad.

That has nothing to do with your user name, however.

I see my reputation has preceeded me. Or my stench is traveling through the tubes of the interwebz.

If your name or anyone's name is red it means that you're/they're currently "online".

The person who decided that the internet should be scratch 'n' sniff should be put to death. If they are already dead, they should be zombified and forced to only eat the incredibly stupid.

If you looked at this thread when you were logged off, your user name would be black.

Users with red stars get to make fun of other users with red stars and users without stars. Users with blue stars get to make fun of other users with blue stars and users with red stars and no stars. 3 blue stars and you can murder the interwebz. The eagle is named Igor. If you have Igor next to your name, you rock it like a hurrican.

Red stars have made a donation to support BF.net. Single blue stars are moderators. Triple blue stars are administrators. The golden bird is an Igor and is a tribute to the late great Sheldon Brown. If you have one next to your name, it means that you have donated to a charitible cause here on the forums or participated in a charitable ride.
