I now have a gold ribbon next to my avatar, and have noticed that some others have silver ones, and possibly even others bronze. Is this some kind of new level thing or what?

I believe gold ribbons are for yearly premium members, silver are for monthly premium members. Bronze are for people who prefer brown liquor.

They indicate subscription types, gold is a yearly and silver is a monthly. It looks like you don't have one despite what you're saying.

That's what I thought, although I'm not seeing it now. I'm not a premium member, as I've never paid to be one and don't plan on ever doing so. It was showing up as I was using the mobile interface on my phone, but now that I've switched over to the standard site on a laptop it's not there. Could just be a bug w/ the new site.

He's talking about the ones in the actual profile page. It appears on the top right corner of the avatar pic. It's probably something that indicates how long you've been a member.

Yea, it's for subscription type. Gold=yearly, silver=monthly. There's a bug that shows some members as a subscriber on their profile page. Like yourself.

It is a shame then that I have a gold ribbon on my profile page.

Yeah, it's got to be a bug. I'm still on my laptop and I just looked at my profile page and there is a gold ribbon in the top right corner. On the forums here the ribbons are on the lower right, but there is no ribbon for me in the forums. Weird.
