You are a registered user. Can you be more specific?

#### mbrmbrg

I thought that would happen.
What does it mean if a username is in black, not bold, and on the public profile page, underneath the username it says "registered user"

You mean where their name looks a little grayed out? That is a member that has not completed the registration process, usually, they have not done the confirmation steps given to them in their confirmation e-mail.

It is to prevent short responses. Sometimes a short response is all that's necessary. I keep asking to get rid of it. :grumpy:

Personally I think they should raise it to 1000 characters to make posts meaningful like this one :tongue:

We make up a dignified forum that wishes to uphold the highest standards of abuse as well:

A minimum of 3 four-letter words must be used in any insult you wish to make here.

Since 3*4=12, the minimum number is 10, due allowance given for forgetting a couple of letters in the heat of the moment.
