Name Colours
« on: August 18, 2011, 02:45:40 PM »
This isn't really a glitch.  I've noticed that my own name is in blue while everybody else's is in orange, when I'm reading threads.  I assumed that it was because my own name would get highlighted, since I'm the one reading.

Until I saw a couple of other people's names in blue, too.

So I'm just curious:  anyone know why?

I see your name as orange, not blue.

What have you got? Is it food? Is it for me? I want it whatever it is!

But do you see your own name as blue?

That's what I'm getting at.  I thought I only saw my own name as blue and everyone else's as orange.

Until I noticed a few people who's names appeared in blue.  I'll have to make note of the names the next time I see them.

Is it the moderators?  Cass, Ticia, Wordgeek?

It wasn't the moderators - that was the first thing I thought of.

And now, my name is orange, too.  But I'm at home now and not a work.  I'll have to see if my work computer is different.

OK - my work computer, using IE (probably not the most up to date version):  My name is in blue, everyone else in this thread is in orange.

My home computer, using Safari:  Everyone, including my own name, is in orange.

I'll just chock it up to 'weird'!   :D

So just something weird that is bugging my little analytical brain.   :D
