The color rankings
« on: June 03, 2017, 02:03:44 AM »
What exactly are the color rankings that are given to all users that are updated often? For instance, when i started, it was white and said "Outside in Line." Now it's lime green or something and it says "In the Audience." What exactly are these?

I know it has something to do with how many posts you've made. Can't recall the exact numbers for each ranking, but the rankings themselves go as follows:

1. Outside in Line
2. In the Audience
3. In Contestant's Row
4. Walking the Golden Road
5. Taking a Bonus Spin
6. Double Showcase Winner

The only one I remember right off is that 1,000 posts or more is "Double Showcase Winner".

What are the colors for each one?

White and green? You're not talking about the icon on the upper left that turns green when a user is online, are you?

The rankings don't mean anything other than displaying how many times you have posted, unless you're a moderator or have been a contestant (or were actually a part of the show's staff at one point, like Scott). I think Gavazzi and Army are the only two members to have achieved "Loyal friend and true" status after surpassing 10,000 posts, but they've also been around since like the beginning of the internet. :P

How often you post and the 'status' listed below your username are meaningless as far as your reputation among others is concerned.  Some of our most highly respected members have lower post counts than those who have high post counts but offer very little in the way of substance.  How long you've been a member is also largely irrelevant, at least to me. 

In other words, posting just to raise your post count won't get you very far here in terms of respect.

Correct.  A few members here have their profiles set to not show whether or not they are currently active.  I believe this feature was once something that could be toggled on or off, but that ability has since been disabled.  Those who previously didn't have it enabled or joined after the option was taken away have the online status turned on by default whenever they log in to the site.  I believe after 30 minutes(?) of inactivity, the indicator shows you being offline.
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

Bumping this because the OP really, really doesn't seem to have twigged onto it.
