Odd Name Colours, Censor Avatars, and Ranks.

You may notice that some people have acquired unusual names colours (yellow, purple, etc.), censor avatars (images that show up when you type someone's nickname) and ranks (a line of text under someone's normal avatars in posts).

Most of these are things that happen in czat. One of those 'you had to be there' sort of things.

However, there are some user groups that carry some significance. You can find what most colours represent by looking at the Group Legend, located just below the list of Who's Online on the index page. Here is a list of what the groups actually mean:

Newly Registered Users. This is an account that has just been created They basically have guest privileges, except they can post a thread in the Intro section. After having done so, they become a Registered User.

Registered Users: The standard user group. They can do pretty much anything a user would need to do.

Regular Users: People who have been around a while and participate regularly. They get a bigger PM inbox and access to extra forums. For more info on how to become a Regular, see this thread.

Department of Propaganda: An honorary group, for recognition of promoting the Arena. Application by recommendation only.

Forum Mods: These are moderators of specific forums.

Global Mods: Moderators of all forums.

Administrator: Me.

Short Bus: Originally intended as a mock-punishment for people who bailed on challenges. Sometimes it gets repurposed as a tool for keeping an eye on people who need to be watched.

Bots: These are search engine crawler bots. They are assigned a group to better control what they can or cannot see and, by extension, add to search engine indexes.
