Why are some lurkers now red? I know that the color used to be listed as "away", but there are some people that have it that haven't been gone from the site that long, so I'm just wondering why they have changed

I noticed that too today. I thought maybe the person was banned, but it's a dark red (similar to my text colour). The legend on the main page doesn't list that colour either.

I noticed it with one member on my friendship list, though he went to lurker status a good while back. I was thinking it meant the member drifted into inactive status. Maybe others request their account to be closed and thus the change to red?:dunno:

So... what constitutes a "lurker" anyway? I thought a lurker was someone who visited the site but never registered. Maybe I don't understand the definition. What does Moderated(rep) mean? Some people have that designation too.

Lurkers are people that join but never post...People will also become a lurker if they post, but then stop posting for several weeks, but you will go back after you post once

Moderated rep means that everything the person posts must be approved by a mod, you get moderated for having -3 rep or more

The new shade of red threw me off a bit. I thought it was the same as the banned color (which is slightly more cranberry, less ketchup).

NOT ENOUGH COLOR IN THE WORLD!! :mad: :)

Last I remember, Red coloured usernames indicate that the person has been away from the forum for a while.

I changed the system so that people who were away for a week (as opposed to visiting the forum, but not posting) would go into 'inactive' status.

The advantage of this is that, when they return, they aren't stuck with being a lurker for the first hour of their return. Its a measure to make things easier / more appealing for people who return to the site after awhile of being away.

You're right though - it needs a better color (something that isn't easily confused with the red used for banned users).

what about using pink for the inactive colour?

Like the pink colour we used to use for all of the Donors on here......

Pink will remind me of the donors. Maybe gold (which is actually "olive," but it looks like gold to me).

Gold makes lurkers look important, and lurkers aren't important. They're the people I don't want to see in the users list, the unwanted bastards who make the user count higher than it should be. I bite my thumb at you, lurkers! :p

How about Pink with a line through the middle of the name, like with Mark Fox only Pink?

I like Gray or Brown. Though with brown you'd get that confusion with red a bit again, so I'll vote for gray.
