    "Actually, I am the Forum Manager. I'm the guy who helps to keep the forums running. Rolygate is the Site Manager. He is the "big boss", and the one who chews me out when I "accidentally" ban people just because they have an avatar with an overly large tongue."

    well, couldn't you "accidentally" get the overly large tongue back over here?
    i mean, now that you had your own thread in the women's room, you should be in a festive mood, lol!!!!!

    Tib, I believe the MM left of his own accord. He will come back if and when he wants to. If you look at his posts, before he went away, he has the large licking tongue as his avatar.

    any of the above would be fine.

    I think this is what you mean---Settings > (In the My Settings column on the left)Edit Profile>(below second heading down) Custom User Title

    Give it a go.

    How do supporting members get their purple name? I haven't found any way to change it in my settings. TIA

    I don't know if it changed, but supporting members got purple, whether they were veterans or not. You should check with Angus, Bovinia, I don't think you should still be blue.

    Thank you Jerry. I PM'd Elendil after I posted here and he said he'd look into it, but as you can see I'm still blue. I'm thinking it just never got fixed after the forum upgrade. We have a ton of supporting members who's names are still blue and I think it would look much more encouraging to see supporters purple names on the "who is online" area at the bottom of the main page :)

    Bovinia, at one time, regular members were blue, supporting members purple and veterans were burgundy. Supporting veterans were purple.

    From what I can tell, it got changed around a few months ago. Regular members and non-supporting veterans are blue, supporting members are purple and supporting veterans are either purple or burgundy.

    Bovinia, in July you become a veteran, so you will have the burgundy choice too. Come and say hello in the pre veteran thread and you will get a welcome thread in the veterans forum, when you turn. :thumb:

    Jerry, thank you for the invite! I'll have to pop in there and introduce myself.

    Since you're the official Instigator I figured Angus keeps a rolled up newspaper aimed at you most of the time!

    If I am interested in being a moderator of a Vendor's forum, how do I go about it. Do I ask the Big Boys or do I ask the forum supplier?

    Ask the supplier first.
