I'm new to the forums of this site and can't seem to find anywhere explaining what the different colour names mean. I know red is a moderator? could someone help me out, or point me in the right direction.

Thank you.

Console preference. White is PC, Blue is PS3, Green is 360, Red is Wii. Moderators have the word Moderator under their names.

You forgot grey is neutral.

It really is, I dont think its mattered at all since earlier years on the site when people would spout lines like " oh here comes the blues defending X" or "just what i'd expect from a green name". It was like Hogwarts with colours up in here at one point but it just faded out.

edit: arrrrgh ive left my European spellings in, my bad :p

It's signifies what sexual acts we're willing to perform on one another during the meet ups.

Greys are barely human so that was on purpose. And please don't speak to me directly.

Gold medals around your photo indicate you have felated at least one staff member.

According to Jeff it's a test. Anyone who doesn't pick grey has failed the test.

Why are you apologizing for the way you learned to write? You shouldn't have to write differently just because you're on a (mostly) American forum.

If he does I'm sure I can get a marshal over here posthaste to educate him thoroughly on etiquette.

I've never seen a white username. I assume since I am on the white template (yes I know, shun me, for I am a freak) that PC must be black.

#24 Posted by Sumbog (477 posts) -

Is it weird that I never even noticed the different coloured names until it was pointed out right now? I'm really only posting this to see what colour mine is, I don't remember picking anything.

Honestly I forgot that it was "System Warz" sort of. I just like mine green.

Oh I'm sorry are you speaking to me, little person? My monocle is foggy and it's difficult seeing your grey shape from atop my white stallion.

Ugh. That is so what I'd expect from a green name. Why don't you do your Microsoft things? On your Windows Phone 8?

#29 Posted by Branthog (7332 posts) -

I'd pay an extra $5/yr to have any color I wanted. :)

Green = I hope you DO have a strong gag reflex

Don't get used to them. About February time they will be gone when the new site design launches.

Good. We don't need colored names to tear each other apart and be assholes. We can do that ourselves! :D

#34 Posted by Trav (241 posts) -

Jeff described it as a sort of "test" once. Implying that anything but neutral grey makes you a crazy person.

This reminds me, I'm going to miss the colored usernames.

I'm posting just so I can check what color my username is. I honestly forgot this was a thing.

This post is true to your "alignment". Intentional or not, well done.

It's a test, and if you choose anything but gray you lose some amount of credibility.

I chose Nintendo for the color, and I don't even like my Wii.
