So it wasn't just me.  I had that too after posting in a thread maybe twenty minutes ago.  Next time I posted, it was gone.

It means you are a dead man walking.  Kind of a lame last post though.

I personally doubt it, but could it have anything to do with Halo: Reach?

I got it too less than a minute ago, so I came searching for a thread.

Well if it does end up denoting subscribers I hope that the wings and halo both end up centered...

There are also a few places on the site that I've just found that aren't displaying a corresponding user's avatar. As of now, both the avatar next to a poll (signifying the poll's creator) and the avatar of the user sending you a PM. Just has the green box for "Online Now," though it's smaller than it should be so the text almost spills off of either side of the green box.
 
 

Related to the wings and halo, perhaps, or can someone confirm that the missing avatars were happening more than an hour ago?

Am I to understand that there is an engineer still at the Whiskey hub and that he's pushing out test code and not telling anyone? Poor bastard, all alone.

Check out this cool broken shit:

Halo and wings still present when viewing someone's blog, though they're pixelated and weird-looking, likely because the avatars are smaller on blog comments than they are in the forums.
