Blue stars are moderators. Red stars are paying members.

Here's another thread about it.

What is that fruity red star beside everyone's name for?

Paying member? What's that all about? I've been here awhile now, and I didn't know about that.
(Yes, I read the other thread.)

I've never thought of those stars as cute....

Here's more to mull over: the Igor and the yellow jersey. And weren't they working on pink stars somewhere? And what do Ti members get?

The Igor was created in commemoration of Sheldon Brown and given to members who have contributed their time and efforts to improve the greater cycling community through things like volunteering and advocacy.

Uhh... OK- what kind of documentation do I need for:
  1. serving on cycling advocacy committees in Santa Barbara, San Diego, and Portland/Vancouver
  2. regularly contributing to Portland's BTA
  3. reviving & running the Oregon Human Powered Vehicles club for several years
  4. starting and organizing the Human Powered Challenge, Portland's annual recumbent/HPV race
  5. leading rides every month for the last 10 years
  6. replying to thousands of questions on various mailing lists and forums, always (OK, most of the time) keeping things positive and honest

What say you, Tom?

The disadvantage of the red star is that we don't get to see all the groovy ads.
