View Full Version : What's with the dark blue?

September 21st, 2007, 06:57 PM
I see some of our names, including mine, are now written in dark blue.

Have we done something wrong?

September 21st, 2007, 07:07 PM
you must be special fabrizio :D

is it becuase you are a senior member

September 21st, 2007, 07:12 PM
^ Ultra senior.

September 21st, 2007, 07:13 PM
ha ha it makes you sound old :p

September 21st, 2007, 07:21 PM
dear, no matter what shade of blue you use, you ain't never gonna look like Elizabeth Hurley.

September 21st, 2007, 07:22 PM
dear, the lighter blue is never gonna make you look like Elizabeth Hurley.

ha ha we can all wish :D

will have to get more posts on to make me dark blue

September 21st, 2007, 08:27 PM
I am in the middle of changing membership categories - and I will make an announcement once it's complete - dark blue means the new category of members over 1,000 posts.

September 21st, 2007, 09:09 PM
Hmmm, I better get posting. No more resting on my senior member laurels...

September 21st, 2007, 10:38 PM
And, Edward, you've given yourself a sunburn :cool:

September 22nd, 2007, 01:33 AM
The change seems to be finished. The new usergroup members have "Forum Veteran" under their name. Unfortunately, custom titles were reset in the process.

September 22nd, 2007, 07:38 AM
omg....please don't.

September 22nd, 2007, 10:37 AM
"Veterans": is that like retirees?

September 22nd, 2007, 11:14 AM
Or ^^^ like the wired varsity team?

Maybe we could get a special letter "V" insignia or pin for our WNY t-shirt :cool:


September 22nd, 2007, 11:19 AM
I noticed that Zippy was green.

Fabrizio, you look handsome in Navy blue.

As Veteran's are we now eligible to Swift Boat other members?

September 22nd, 2007, 12:29 PM
Custom avatars would be nice, i never applied one as it dont make sense that many others would have the same, or a senior member had the one i liked. Also im a vet sweet! can i get into esb for free now?

September 23rd, 2007, 11:04 AM
Guys, now I'm going to start meaningless postings to up my count.

September 23rd, 2007, 12:01 PM
spoken ^^^ like a true wny veteran ;)

September 23rd, 2007, 10:16 PM
Does being a "Veteran" get me into any airport first class lounges? :D

I'll settle for skymile rewards for every ten posts ;)

September 24th, 2007, 09:37 AM
I would too.

September 24th, 2007, 01:56 PM
I think the red is a little much for the mods Ed. I know you are trying to make it obvious, but it kind of jumps out of the page...

My suggestion would be something a little more pastel. Green would be nice. Maybe a different font (like Copperplate Gothic Bold? whatever fits). But that red is too contrasting for me....

As for custom Avatars... I would not mind a bit of that, but I think that we need a control valve with it too.

Zip has his Gulianni Chimp, there may be room for other approved pictures. I am looking for a good David Byrne, or even Gabriel Byrne (trust me, I did not look for multiple "byrne" marks here.... :p)

I have not chosen any of the generic ones because none seem to fit me, although Ed Norton is close he is used by too many others...

It would be nice if we could have our own avatars, akin to Lofters, so that when we see the pic it can be none other than who we think it to be...

Aside from that, I like what you have done with the place! BTW, everyone will have to re-customise their titles... ;)

September 24th, 2007, 06:46 PM

That's not me avatar you're talkin' about. That's me "profile picture" :cool:

I keep all that stuff turned off when I'm here.

We have enough funny pictures swarmin' about without clutterin' up me brain with a bunch of strange mugs.

September 24th, 2007, 07:08 PM
Ahoy over there!

It's "Talk Like a Pirate Day" AGAIN?

I thought I was feelin' horny.

September 24th, 2007, 07:19 PM
The sight of all those avatars messed up my brain :cool:

September 25th, 2007, 03:42 PM
I am not talking anything wild the Loft!!!

Just the simple celeb faceshots. Maybe even limit them to B+W (or sepia).

When I see whats-his-face from Gangs of new york, I know that is Ed. When I see that capped guy with the ear flaps, that is you...

Just makes an easier association.

You can make it so that you have to be here a while before you get a custom avatar. And they will all have to be approved, naturally... ;)

I think the red is a little much for the mods Ed.

Maybe a different font Begad! Don't want me blasted font fixed. Pipe down or I'll have ya keelhauled.

For Fab

September 25th, 2007, 06:25 PM
oh, boy.... I got some posting to do. :(

Now you're gonna be really confused (http://wirednewyork.com/forum/showpost.php?p=188475&postcount=75)

Rapunzel managed to sell that whole "blondes have more fun" bit?

September 27th, 2007, 08:29 AM
It seems that some of you here are not aware that the guy-with-the-ear-flaps is Russian cutie Yuri Gagarin.

He was a famous Cosmonaut. (I've always preferred Vogue).

Imagine going to the moon with him:


Here he is ready for lift-off:


I had no idea the new avatar was Ruth Gordon.

I thought it was Arlene Francis.


September 27th, 2007, 10:50 AM
I always wondered who that was.

September 27th, 2007, 01:03 PM
Do you recognize my entertaining new avatar?

September 27th, 2007, 03:43 PM

September 27th, 2007, 05:45 PM
very funny.
