The dots. OMG, the dots
« on: January 10, 2013, 10:29:47 AM »
So what are those dots above my avatar? I see a single green dot. Some have multiple yellow ones, moderators are blue, Jer is red and Jutes/Snackers/Amby have thooper rainbows?

It indicates the size of your E-Peen0r.

I have, like, no epeen.

I think the green beside your name is just that your online. As for the yellow and stuff, probably just randomly put up there to mess with peoples heads.
God must love crazy people, he made a lot of them.

Post count, or indicator of what membership group you're in..

Jutes/snackers/amby got called out for being troublemakers & that's how we annoyed them back.

Yep.

... ;)

(the number of dots/squares above your avatar correlates to your "forum status", ie, Baby Smooth Faced, Stubbly Faced, Patchy Faced, etc..., a.k.a. your post count)

Awesome!

May as well ask this here too. I have "Inarguably Bearded' below my name also, what does this mean?

No, the rainbows were only "in the system" after snackers pissed off jer at a meet & got turned into "Miss Prissy Girl" for a week.

The only way to get 5 is if you're a WSC Supporter.. Which you can no longer do, as I've been offering money to Jer for a while.. Apparently they don't need donations any more.
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

To be a WSC supporter? or for other <ahem> reasons?

I don't forsee us ever dealing with custom icons... We already have to field PMs from people who want to change their username because they sold/bought a car  "Hey man, I don't wanna be 08STI4eva anymore... can I be JDMGC8rgr8 instead?" 

FFS people, How about you be "Jeff" instead?!?!

I just got to ask, because I'm a part of other car forums that I donate to.

But, Why don't we have a donations/support option for our club? Too hard to manage or? Wouldn't that make life at our club meets easier? pay for trinkets and what not?

Until this "club" moves to an actual structured club format theres no need for that, or I suppose theres no easy way to keep it organized and keep track of the money and things like this. We discussed moving to a structured club format a little while ago and it was decided that it is still unnecessary for the few events we put on.

Money means treasurer, responsibility, and accountability.
I don't think that's something anyone currently wants to do.
As soon as people start "investing", usually they want something for it.
"I gave you 20 bucks, so I think I should be able to post whatever I want".

And as you said, not really necessary either. WSC doesn't have any significant costs that can't be taken care of by the current "management".
