yellow squares
« on: November 08, 2012, 01:37:58 pm »
Apologies if this has been asked before. I did try various searchs..

Just above my profile picture are 2 yellow squares, I notice that some posters have 3 or 4. Just wondering what they signify?

They're a forum equivalent to McDonalds stars. You can do fries but FFS keep away from the burgers  ;)

Sorry Amy, yellow for the plebs, blue for moderators & no more than five for anyone, even if you have 100,000 posts like Cap'n Chris.

I reckon green is for moderators of specific boards and blue is global moderators.
I could be wrong though...  :-\

Are they green when you are actually logged on?

Just testing...

Apparently not...
