Rich (I'm assuming you just did some kind of update),

What does it mean that some people's names are now bolded or italicized?

Those are Admins. I'm not satisfied with it now. I just realized it messed up the username display and I was really more interested in making them more "findable" in the Online Users.

They also don't affect the display in the "buddy list".

Then did we get some new moderators? Because if not, then on my display at least there are bold names which aren't. If so: then, well, never mind and rock on.

Yes, Paul, we do have a couple new moderators.

I like the bolded usernames. It gives me a sense of awe and dread and makes me want to lay my hand over my mouth in the bolded typeface of of authority. This will come in handy when Ruben sends me a u2u telling me that he's going to infract me if I don't make his dinner.

I'd like to report a case of moderatorial abuse of power.

I concur with Heidi :lol: Now it is clear who I shouldn't make fun of. The admins are always helpin' a brotha' out :)

No, no, do not challenge the bolded and italicized ones. Our typeface cannot sustain their anger . . .

My typeface has already crumbled under batman's strong hand. He has shown me the error of my ways and sent me down the path of right-puritan-board-conduct.

People, it doesn't say El Tirano under my name for no reason.

I like the bold. The italicization scares me.
Maybe, instead of italicizing for emphasis we can use a Hebraism and repeat the bolded usernames to distinguish them from Mods.

greenbaggins greenbaggins for administrators

Semper Fidelis Semper Fidelis Semper Fidelis for super administrators

Is that less scary?

There's a small percentage of danger that my mind might get stuck repeating 'Semper Fidelis' and I might have to bang my head helplessly against something to make it stop.

Oh no! The attack of the super-killer stuck-record obsessive-compulsive moderator-wife! Look out, wall (or whatever she decides to make her target)!

Heidi,

I have long thought that you suffered mercilessly under the heavy-handed yoke of Ruben's dictatorial rule. To add boldness, even in so trifling a matter as typography, to his already demonstrated proclivity for grandiosity, must be a particularly severe burden to bear.

However, reading your posts on this thread make me ask how, with so sharp a razor-edged tongue, you have not slit open the side of your mouth when burying it so far into your cheek? :lol:

Careful, Lane, I have shared a meal with this couple. You do NOT want to cross her!!! My physical therapist says that with a lot of hard work I may yet learn to walk (after a fashion) following my last encounter with Heidi. Who knows, people can almost understand my speech now too.

So, let me get this straight. That would be the same as:

Exceedingly Greenbaggins

and

Perfectly Semper Fidelis​

That's definitely bold. :cool:

Maybe we should simply employ a perfective use of the preposition: Hyper-greenbaggins, ek-semperfi, ek-py3ak

Rev. Keister I was trying to keep my identity as 'Super-killer Stuck-record Obsessive-compulsive Moderator-wife Woman' a secret. Ruben can wear a mask but no mask can stay intact on my helplessly battering head.

I've never met Ruben, but I'm guessing he's a big marshmallow of a guy. Between the El Tirano heading, the Batman imagery, etc. I'm guessing he's just sweet as pie and then some. The kind of guy who gets his cheeks pinched by his aunt and then blushes and says "aw shucks, Aunt May..."
