There's this new blue box around some of the user pictures. Anybody know what's up with that? (I'm in Chrome)

This is being looked into. Just to put any speculation to rest, the blue border around an avatar means the account has notes on it. That could be anything from a manual note from a moderator to a system generated note from when a topic got moved, and more. A blue border on it's own doesn't mean much.

I see it on Chrome, but only on certain avatars. Mine has no border, for example.

There is an additional 'notes" tag in the HTML profile link for the users that have the blue border. The div containing the avatar that has "note" attached has CSS setting background image gradient for ."avatar.notes"

class="avatar subscriber yearly notes "

No idea what "notes" is.

The dropdown lists time periods, 1 day to forever. I guess it's an ignore function.

Let's not try it out. Paging @rick@wcarle before someone gets banned forever.

With all of this and the icon and banner change on the GB Youtube channel, I don't know what is going on!

EDIT: I tried to ban myself and just got an error.

It's an UI glitch that should be resolved soon. Actually trying to ban would just result in an error.

Maybe it has to do with avatar size? Could be monthly vs yearly membership? It also has an inaccurate follower count for everybody as well, could be they are going to add the border for everybody eventually and are just testing the waters.

I'm guessing this is a mod privilege that has spilled over for all? What about the block functionality and the blue box though?

Well, I'm glad I'm not the only one that's seeing the blue boxes.

Edit: looks like a spambot got an orange box around its avatar. O_o

I dunno, the blue boxes look kinda dope. I wouldn't object to them being there permanently.

For being on-topic reasons: I see them on the latest stable firefox build.

What if the people with the blue box are the only real ones and the rest of us are just bots?

Some wires got crossed and the mod button showed up when it shouldn't have. Don't worry you can't actually ban people unless you're a mod for real. Fix is on the way for tomorrow. Pretend you didn't see anything... !
