My name at the bottom in the little list of members currently online used to be bolded black font and I just noticed that I am red.


What'd I do? ;)

You probably had your mouse pointer over it.

Well now I am not bolded anymore. I even checked to make sure my arrow was not over my name.

Is this because of the pie eating contest post?:confused:

Do you know, I hadn't even noticed until this moment that you'd changed your name:confused: :redface: How remiss of me.

What?! Now how the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks did that happen?!

First I am bolded, then I am red, then I am unbolded...Now I have a whole new identity! Soon the powers that be will do away with me altogether!!

Just trying to keep you on your toes, Parihaka. :)
I see it's working.

I have made senior members' usernames regular font, and made the user titles bold instead. The bold usernames were quite chunky and space-consuming, the new style is sleeker.

It also helps close the perceived gap between senior and non-senior members, as I'm sure it can be a bit intimidating when you're the regular-font username guy posting in a thread where everybody else has a huge, chunky bold username, while at the same time keeping a visual distinction between senior and non-senior members, albeit not so drastic.

Think of it as a move to "lower the barriers" to participation. :)

Too late. You came back ... although how the hell you got banned before making a 1st post is beyond me.

Don't you mean the Communist Party? I thought the Dems were blue. :confused:

Democrats = Left-Wing = Socialists = Communists = Red = Better Off Dead.

Simple math ;)
