I was just wondering, Soopy and a few others have different colored names.

Why is this?

#2 Posted by elliooo (293 posts) -

The different names reflect their 'fanboy' alignment.

Blue is sony, green is Microsoft, Red is Nintendo.

#3 Posted by Jonathan (654 posts) -

I think it depends on what your chose as fanboy when you signed up for the account.  So if you chose Microsoft it would be green. And blue for Sony. At least I think.

Thats a bloody good question...i was wondering myself....

#5 Posted by TheBeast (1931 posts) -

And PC is white... I demand a real colour for us PC fans!

#6 Posted by McPlated (132 posts) -

When you signed up you were asked what kind of 'fanboy' you are - what ever you picked is what determines what color your name will show up.

I selected neutral, and I'm still white.

The whole world is now placing me in a damn box, mislead into thinking I'll back the PC to the bloody end. If I get shoebombed I'm totally suing Giantbomb.

I'm Nintendo so if my name isn't red that theory is incorrect.

Hmm, names aren't colored in the threads but they are in the thread list.

Can you change your fanboy thing? I haven't looked around for it yet.

In your My Profile section, click Edit My Profile on the top right - the option to change it is there.

I chose Neutral even though I only play on PC. I just don't want people to look through my profile and assume I'm a straight out PC fanboy when it comes to discussions/arguements.
And no, you cannot quote me.

This message will self-destruct in...

Yeah I picked PC and got White, I want PC to be Orange, that is a nice color.

Yo staff, do you hear me? ORANGE FOR PC!

#16 Posted by Atlas (2430 posts) -

I think it's a really nice touch. That way everyone knows where everyone stands. Great idea.

#17 Posted by svcheats1 (141 posts) -

Now I know who to lynch.

JUST KIDDING!

<.<

#18 Posted by Joker (675 posts) -

Color system is neat, but the only colors I usually see are green(360).

#19 Edited by Red (5994 posts) -

Well, if that's true then my name and my alignment are fairly ironic. Red, but he's Blue!

#20 Posted by Locke (330 posts) -

I think both PC and neutral are white.  

#21 Edited by NoRemnants (378 posts) -

They should make the names colored on posts.

#22 Edited by Diego (134 posts) -

yeah, if not, you wouldnt know who is a fanboy

If that's the case, PC should stay white and neutral should be some sort of grey...
#24 Posted by innerlogic (3 posts) -

I love this color coded system to show where that person stands on different game companies; Now if I see someone will a colored name, I can disregard whatever they say :-)

#25 Posted by Lairdo (543 posts) -

Oh noes, I hope I can change it...

#26 Posted by Caje (138 posts) -

You can change it by editting your profile.

#27 Posted by KiLL3r (100 posts) -

What about if you like all  system equally,Can you have a green,blue,Red and white name?

#28 Posted by Nude_Dude (1076 posts) -

so that makes me a Nintendo fanboy....why the hell is it red?

#29 Posted by adam_grif (1144 posts) -

Red = Mario
Green = XBOX logo
Blue = Playstation 2 logo?

Red Green Blue is typically what distinguishes them on sales charts people make too I suppose.

#30 Posted by Toseph (370 posts) -

I somehow missed the neutral option when I signed up but luckily you can change it

#31 Posted by Dutch (15 posts) -

Hmm, I chose MS and my username isn't green.

#33 Posted by Termite (2398 posts) -

Ah but why is PC white? Because we're purists?

#34 Posted by Mordok44 (173 posts) -

That sounds about right.

#35 Posted by stAtic (1638 posts) -

We want some color for the PC, kthx.

#36 Posted by Joker19 (62 posts) -

#37 Posted by Tridgen (120 posts) -

#38 Posted by Gen_Warbuff (158 posts) -

Then you're neutral, and your name shows up as White.

Yeah, I want a multicolored name!
#41 Posted by nezze00 (144 posts) -

I think PC should have a different color than neutral if it does not already.

#42 Posted by AdrenalinDragon (36 posts) -

PC should be pink or orange, whilst neutral should stay white IMO.

#43 Edited by WizzyKid (259 posts) -

Is it a good sign that the vast majority of names are white?

As for colour names, the Nintendo logo has been Red before. But, there isn't really a specific colour for Nintendo. The Gamecube was purple, but Mario's red, and their logo always changes colour. But now the Wii's blue, but the console is white. Aaargh.

But PC orange? Now can someone explain that to me?

#44 Posted by MrBrightside91 (60 posts) -

I chose Ninty for mine, though if I'm honest - MS look more and more appealing =]

#45 Posted by Hulk (428 posts) -

That is a very good observation. i mean I knew about green Microsoft, n' blue Sony- but I had no Idea about red Nintendo. Nintendo should be.. I don't know.. Um.. yeah well- there is only red left from the main colors.
#49 Posted by ToRo (209 posts) -

PC is orange, it's just a glitch that makes it the same colour as people who selected "neutral", it will be fixed soon.
