Quick question about forum.
« on: August 16, 2017, 09:24:32 AM »
Just curious what the little colored squares above the avatars signify?
I notice there can be different number of them and different colors.

I looked around the site trying to find an explanation but struck out.

Not sure I should talk to someone with as many strikes as you. Gotta avoid the ole guilt by association.  :chuckle:
I'm sure there's a pretty mundane answer, but it's starting to be that itch you can't scratch.

If the square color is green, it indicates that member is currently online.  If it is yellow, it shows that they are logged off.

That is how I understand it anyway. :twocents:


edit - might be thinking of different squares.  :dunno:
May I always be the kind of person my dog thinks I am.

Different squares.
You and I have a single yellow square over our avatars. Quadfire has 5 yellow squares over his.
I've noticed some people have blue and others have red.

Coming along to see what the answer is!!
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Sarcasm: The ability to insult stupid people without them realizing it. 

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

This has been asked before but I don't recall the answer, or if there even was an answer.

Doesn't seem to have anything to do with join date, post count, or trade count.
