How do you view us?
I've noticed that as a moderator people probably see my posts differently that if I weren't a moderator. So I'm wanting to hear from everyone (all the regular users or lowly peasants) what they think.

I've always wondered about this and I think I understand it to some extent although now that I'm here as a moderator for so long it doesn't make sense anymore. I see myself as just another person, and don't like being treated/seen differently. I don't like that some people expect me to behave/act differently as a moderator.

There were times when I got sick of being treated differently and having expectations dumped on me all because of a stupid username color. I actually demoted and promoted my user account because of this on at least two occasions in my time here.

Believe it or not, I've actually been accused of being power mad. All I can say to that is: SIEG HEIL! Rolleyes

RE: How do you view us?
Whenever I go online, I go down to check on the "who's online" list. Colors don't mean anything, it's the usernames I look for. But then again, the username colors are quickly associated with who's online.

It's like looking at a bus from far, and if you know your number, and what direction you want to go in, matrixing the blob to associate it to the either my bus or not my bus happens a lot.

When it comes to people treating a color different, well... that's just racist.

I look at everyone with suspicion. It's easier that way.

Trust no one, everything is a conspiracy led by the power-hungry.

The pretty colors are to divert our attention from what's really going on.

I don't really even think about it. I'd have to go look up what all the different colours actually mean.

I guess at first the Colour thing was a little impressive but then I read some of your posts... Thumbsup

The colours of my name are the same as the gay pride flag Drinking Beverage

You mods have it easy with your purple (well dark pink to be precise) colours Drinking Beverage

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

Chas's username colors remind me of a 1992 television set, when you stick you head right next to it. Drinking Beverage

The only time I see you as "different" is when you post in the capacity of moderator. Other than that you're just part of the uncleaned masses around here Cool
