stranger

What's with the new title "stranger" that I've seen instead of the diamonds?

Re: stranger

It should be fixed now .. the titles defaulted to the UBB.threads standard titles after the upgrade. Seems to have affected the new users.

Re: stranger

It's still hanging around it seems, colonyearth is shown as a stranger. Perhaps it's stuck to all people who joined in that period?

And what were Infopop thinking? "Stranger" is a daft way to label newbies - it's hardly welcoming.

Yeah, they should have just gone with 'fresh meat'.

Re: stranger

This is moving away slightly from the subject, but....

I have noticed that the signature length has been restricted to 100 characters (not much), but the homepage url can be 150 characters.

This means unfortunately, that I cannot add my birthday or change anything else in my profile unless I drastically curtail my signature. Something I am loathe to do.

Can we have the signature length increased a bit please?

Done.

Kribu did tell me about this... she's on the ball about everything really. User ranks, she spotted that one too. But I just got around to doing it.

Maybe "stranger" is being used in the comparative sense, and not to indicate a previously unknown user?

Regards,

Or perhaps they are stranger than we are...which is entirely horrifying.
