    Default Question about color code of the "Currently Active Users"

    Hi,

    not sure if this is the right place to ask but saw "question" in the forum so here goes:

    On the main forum page at the bottom there is a section reporting which users are currently active, the aforementioned "What's going on, Currently Active Users"
    In that section some names appear green others have a grey or blue text background. What do these color and alternate background color means?

    Thank you!

    Members who have contributed to the forum have a color background to their name. Different color for each year I believe. Donated funds go to keeping forum alive and updated.

    It is easy to contribute. Just click the donate button at the. Top right of the page and use PayPal. Honestly, donation should be required for people who sell anything in the marketplace. There is a wealth of knowledge and great conversation right at your fingertips...That has to be worth something, right?

    Administrators/Mods are also given a red distinguishing color code for easy reference.

    Thank you for the answers

    I thought it was giving some more status like: User is replying, User is writing a PM etc!

    So does everyone else, except that we have the ability to see those who have chosen the option to make themselves invisible when online
