    Understand the star, why different colors???

    Okay, maybe I should be able to figure this out but I don't want to exert the effort. I know that the star indicates a paying member/supporter of the site. Why are some user names in black and some in red?

    Maybe I should post the quick answer to this question, but I don't want to exert the effort.

    Have you ever seen your own name in black instead of red?

    Yes, but then I cannot post until it's red again so be wary of the black name

    Yep. I'm Black. Black means you are off line and red means you are on. Red stars mean you donated to BF, Blue stars mean moderators or admins.

    Most people here have white stars.

    You can be black but on-line, it's stealth. I'm nevar red. I'm sneaky that way.

    Hey, I never seen no white stars.


    oh.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    I suggested that a long time ago .

    I think he would be too modest (I assume it could be done without much of a problem if someone really wanted to) to accept it. Just another reason why he's a great guy and a considerable asset to this board.
