Hi, this may be a dumb question and it may be also treated in the past, but I couldn't find any relevant info while searching, perhaps I didnt' search right,so forgive me if this is the case.

In the main page of the SOTW forum down at the bottom of the page there's a list of the currently online members, I payed attention that some of the names appear in light green, some others in dark green, then later I only payed attention that it's the same way they appear when they post.
How is it made? Everybody can change those settings or only advanced members?
Thanks,
Ziv

G'day Zivley,

Mate, the colours refer to length of members. If you're light green, it means you're very new here and helps older members know to take it easy on you, and advise you of such things as the "search" button, etc.

After you reach 1000 posts, you go dark green, which means you've been aroundlong enough to have gained credibility on the forum and now you are entitled and expected to let other newcomers know about the search function. It also means you can spout off about any bloody thing and your opinions will be taken as the Gospel truth (except by the guys in the Sacred Sax section, but there's only two of 'em, so who gives a fig?) ;) :)

After you've posted so many times,that your post count goes around the clock and back to zero like nanna's old morris minor, you'll appear blue.

This lets everyone know that you're older than Moses, in forum terms, and whilst you've been around here longer than Gary, and have mucho credibility, you're also a geriatric sax player and can't be trusted to remember your own name. Let alone what you were originally arguing about.

If you should perchance, post something XXX rated, insulting to another member, political, religious, (with exception of the sacred sax thread, which has SFA to do with sax but that's an argument for another day), or otherwise naughty, your colour will change to blend invisibly with the background and you'll disappear. Around here, we call it getting "Martysaxed."

I hope that's cleared it all up for you mate. Anytime I can be of help, don't be afraid to ask. :D ;)

Very funny DP :lol:

But seriously though, the colors refer to contributing members (that is, those who made a donation to the forum) The color may vary in shade depnding on the year that they've contributed.

You may also have noticed that some users such as RootyTootoot for instance have a title that also says: "Forum Contributor 2007" -- Some other contributing members like gary for instance have a customized title because well... they're just "special" ;)

Ok, thanks for the info.
DP, when you're already old enough to stop being "green" that means you're ripe, then you get a more of a reddish or dark purple color, or you may choose what fruit to be? Perhaps a ripe yellow banana?
Now, about the title, is that something that is given only to contributors?
Do you need to donate on a regular basis to keep the colors and the title?
How much it costs to buy the navy blue color?

;)

Harri will give you the navy blue for a mere $100,000. For $250,000 he'll make you paisley and give you a pirate patch.

Ok, maybe it's time for me (a regular blue member) to leave and let you all "green" people to discuss your positions, titles, authorities and privileges here in the forum.
Sorry I woke up the beers... Is like I poured salt on old wounds...

:( All I wanted is a coloured name and a customized title! :(

It's a machine gun, but it's disguised.
