    I have seen the "+" next to peoples names from time to time on the "whos on" "whats going on" page aka 2 nd page. What does this mean? Also I have seen "*".

    Another question: I have seen some Mods who's names are not bold. Example Heavy Duty who had a "+" next to his name.

    Odd. My name is in the first position of "Currently Active Users", not bolded. Jamie, are you listed first when you look at the screen?

    The "+" and "*" are easier. The "+" means I'm dead, and you're talking to my spirit.











    Actually, here's the key (from the bottom of the "Who's Online" page):

    My name is also first, with a * next to it, since I choose to surf in stealth mode (I wouldnt want to get caught with my right boob out in the TaBz forum ;) )

    Also, I've noticed that most posters have a Bass clef in the lower left corner of their posts, and I have a check mark instead.

    From what I have gathered.

    + means that person is on your buddy list

    * means that person has been inactive for a little while

    Bold= supporting members

    Regular=admins,mods,normal members

    The little bass clef in the bottom:
    white=user is online
    dark=User is offline
     
  9. * means a person is in ninja (invisible) mode.
