    I really did do a Search First.

    So here's my Stupid Question.

    What are those little Icons (symbols) under our avatar.
    I gathered that the Triangle is to report bad posts.
    But why do some have it, and some don't.
    Also, why is some peoples dot green, and some blue?

    You mean the circle next to the triangle? It's the online indicator. Green means that person is online. Blueish means they are either offline, or "hidden."

    (Mods can still see if you're online though)

    And of course, some people have their Yahoo or MSN or AIM messengers listed as well.

    You don't have a triangle under your own posts because, what are you gonna do, report yourself?

    Green dot = online, blue dot = offlline. Hovering over the dot would've given you a tool tip telling you what it was for.

    Based on post count (1 cell per thousand)

    You get a cellphone under your name for each 1000 posts. The colors just differentiate between 1 cellphone and 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 cellphones, they don't mean anything other than that.

    The mods need to come up with a new cellphone strategy based on Insertion's post count, although he does get a custom title.

    If you want, here's what I'll do for you. If you felt you posted something offensive, but don't want to edit the post, just send me a PM and I report you for you. That way you can get whatever you want off your chest in your posts, yet be offended because you feel you crossed the line. Deal?

    You'd think that there would be at least a dozen people posting under that name for him to have so many posts, right? But he accumulated most of those during the good ol' days, back when an Off Topic post counted as much as anything else. That was back before people became so easily offended.

    But to answer your question, no, he doesn't have a family. He was kicked out of the clan when he tried to challenge the silverback. It didn't end well for him. So now he's what's known as a "rogue monkey".

    I believe only the "Invisible" user sees the red icon under his name. Everyone else sees the bluish/grey.

    Or else, why be invisible?
