Name colors

    Wherever someone's name is used as a link, e.g. next to their posts or at the bottom of the main forum page, some names appear green. What does this indicate? It does not seem to be a visited link color, and is not an indication of whether someone is online.

    If memory serves this phenomenon only started relatively recently (though probably at least a month ago at this point). Maybe I missed the announcement about this.

    :confused:

    Green people are super-mentors, red people are mentors, yellow people are contributors, blue people are regular members, and I think admins are bolded blue. Hmmm...somehow this doesn't sound like a very politically correct reply. :shrugs: Oh well.

    Well, it seems it's not green, it's #d8a324. (I'm color blind, so what do I know? :wink: ) I pulled the RGB code out of the html, but unfortunately the color is applied by a font tag rather than css so there's nothing that might indicate why it's there.

    ----------------

    Looking around some more, I think I've figured out that the color is attached to contributors. For some reason, I remember convincing myself that wasn't the case when I first noticed it.
