In the "Users Online" section at the bottom of the forum index page, some users' names appear in blue. Why?

At the moment you're blue on mine but the others aren't. I wondered if it signified moderator, but Karen's wasn't blue last time I saw it.

On some forums depending on what level or type of moderator you are you appear in a different colour. I would say that your name comes up blue because you are a Global Moderator Paul where as Karen is a normal Moderator...........although I don't know what the difference is at all  ;)

They are actually the same color Blue, but like Daniels if done in Bold not normal entry.. that happens when it is entered I would think! perhaps when he filled out profile he did not stipulate bold or normal print as Normal is thinner lines same color!

They're not the same colour blue on my screen. Most are dark blue but Paul's appears a bright, light blue.

Actually, being blue indicates the amount of Pictish ancestry a person has in their family tree. Either that or the number of woad dyers in the family wood pile.
