Hi,

I have seen people whose usernames are reflected in different colors. Whether there have posted a large number of posts or not, there are different colors for their userids. I want to know what is the logic behind this .

That's actually a pretty neat question. I never really noticed it before. Now I'm curious.

I suspect that one has to be a forum moderator or have thousands of posts and many kudos. In other words, one has to be an authority. I might PM bb on the issue and to find out.

I dont think it is the correct assumption, for example - userids:

I am sure there was a post about this sometime back but I can't find it... Forum home page at the bottom, you can see some of the legends (color id representation)... but I guess it would be nice to have this entire list of color legends on the home page for ease of new users

Thanks for the information MJ2009! Kudos! Although it wouldn't be very masculine, a hot pink or purple name might look good. White would also be interesting.

I believe it's a phpBB mod that the admin (maybe managers based on permission) have access too, it's going to be a special css class that they are privy to change?

No, I think this color scheme is used for ppl in certain special groups, legends, such as which B-schools they are admitted to. I have listed 2 cases where they are admitted to schools and I am not, yet, but they have other stats less than me

I thought that the color user ids were for: forum moderator, people in b-school, alumni, and etc.

I think there's a sticky in the main bschool application forum that explains all the different colors. They represent forum roles (red=admin, blue=BOD, green=global mod) or student/alumni status (all the other colors).

hi everyone,

We chose school colors to represent official school colors. Duke', for example, is Prussian Blue. Harvard's color is Crimson. As I quickly found out, there are too many schools with similar colors, so we will have to come up with a better system.

Board of Directors - Blue -- These are members chosen for their contributions and service.

Is this on a request basis for the school colors?

If add your information to the "Where are you going" thread in the b-school application forum, you would be included (I update once a week or so)
