    Why do some people's username coloured green like mine and others black?

    It is because you have less than 50 posts. Once you get past 50 (and posts in Odds/Ends and Rants/Raves do not count), your name will also turn black.

    Since you are new, I would also suggest reading the FAQ in the TW Comments and Suggestions forum.

    It is because of racism.

    Why is the sky orange? Why is grass blue? Why is it warm in Alaska? Why is it cold in California? There is just no answer to these questions.

    Perhaps we'll become even better acquainted with the OP when he creates the always unique "How do I get an avatar on my profile?" thread? Oh, I do love to sit atop my pedestal. ;)

    Listen Knightmace, don't pay us any attention. You asked a question and we answered it. This is how we roll. lol.

    Because I haven't updated your account. As soon as I get around to it, I'll change your username, and even allow you to upload an avatar. However, make sure you don't **** anyone off (primarily me). You're being watched, and being warned.

    Have fun on the boards, and welcome.

    A green id is a new feature where your account is ecologically friendly. It means you can post only when the moon is full and the humidity level is between 45% and 70%. This feature is proven to limit greenhouse gases and thus help save the planet. After 100 posts, you will be required to plant a tree, which will become your official TW tree. The tree can get inspected at any time by TW officials. If it is in good health, then you get promoted to a black id. Happy gardening!

    In front of my computer, obviously
    I once asked to have it stickied at the top of three or four of the forums, but since I didn't mention Spencer's fine man chest within my post, the suggestion was completely ignored.

    Erm. Nobody's username is black. You're colorblind my friend!




    You'll get a BLUE username after 50 posts. I suppose it means you're "one of us" and that you don't stand out as a newbie anymore. You can still be a newb though if you post annoying things in which case people will make fun of others by making reference to you.

    ^ ^ That's what I was going to observe.

    BLUE ....BLACK

    See the difference?

    Only a select few of us are born with the power to see black usernames.
