    Ernie I changed my user name color I guess back in 2013 from blue to red. I'v just noticed the past few days that it went back to blue could even have been longer.

    On the old format I knew how to change the color but with the new format I can't find anyway to do it. I know one morning I came on the site seeing that my subscription lapsed over night and I sent payment, don't know if this messed it up.

    Anyway it changed all on it's own and I would like to be red if possible. If you can instruct me or change it that would be nice.

    Thanks

    I knew where that was, in the vB software. I cannot find it anywhere, even as a style option, in XF. Neither as "user-controlled", nor automatic.

    I think it might be a glitch when my sub lapsed over night.

    As I remember it, it was a sub option in the vB software, and five years ago hardly anyone would change it till word got out. I did it then to be different, and then more and more changed their colors. When we switched to the new format I'v never seen a way to change it, it also looks to be color coding members now. Blue =non subs, Red = Subs, Green = mods. Bright Blue =Admin.

    I'm different again :banana: I'm cool:rflmao:

    Yeah I think we got it some what figured out. Maybe somewhere along the lines with the new format Luther changed the default here to reflect a red color for subs. When we first got here and for the longest time there was a lot of subs with blue names as well as red, but I'm not finding them now.

    I always thought Sandy's Gold name was cool because he's the only one I'v seen here like that

    FWIW I've never noticed any color except blue. Could just be I wasn't paying attention.

    Turns out there was a conflict in the settings. Registered members are blue. Subscribers are red. The vB option to choose is not available in XF. Sponsors are in black. No more conflicts.
