Strikethrough in name

  1. I've noticed while surfing through threads that some members have a rasied line (strikethrough) in their name. Does this mean that they are blocked (banned from server)? Everything else makes sense, like the colors coresponding to importence of site.

    Since this thread is somewhat on this topic, what's with the users whose names are black and small? like boulderhead
     
  5. I believe that denotes a user who is no longer registered, but whose posts are still saved.
     
  6. Some users are ímported'from the old-style user groups, eg. sci.physics

    When boulderhead moved back to the jungle, he requested that his account be made inactive.
     
  8. Thanks for all the information, I just wanted to make sure I was assuming correctly.

    As long as the line remains BENEATH your name, you're momentarily safe, though!:smile:
     
  10. The momentairly part just makes that statement hillarious. no sarcasm intended.
