Yeah, I think their should be different colors... if you're an ex, you deserve some sort of recognition for your contribution to the forum. Exes are usually people you can talk to for anything, OR for a certain something. It would help people out, AND it would recognize them for what they've done.

Bring the colors back.

Bringing the colors back would just bring segregation. People will realize that there is a defined line of member, and that yes, the exclusive members are better members than he/she is; but if you bring back the colors, it will just turn into giant battle of who can gain this power to tell people off because of their color. Once again, I state that this would border on being racially unequal.

I'm perfectly fine with the exclusive members having something that signifies their prowess, but bringing in more colors would just make this forum a lot more confusing and jumbled, especially to new members.

I know that using vBulletin the admin can make usergroups that can access certain parts of the forum, I also know that the admin can make other things in the name to signify: such as underlining.

I say that instead of having the exclusive members given a color to signify their rank in this internet society, they are given an underlined name.

Of course, as aforementioned this is an internet society completely and totally governed by the admins when it comes down to the final decision, so what I think doesn't really matter.

Colors would work fine, Kamui... it worked fine when we did have it, and it would work fine now. All new users would have to do is ask what the colors mean if they were confused. The only problem we had with colors (actually, it wasn't even really with the colors, but the exclusives themselves), was that they pretty much only read/sided with what another ex said.

I remember some exclusives saying that they scroll down a page and look for blue before they read a post... if exclusives can stay out of that elitist bullshit, the exes will be great, and colors will be fine.

That makes sense.

As long as the exclusives didn't constantly bring it up, or flaunt it over everyone else, then I'm sure that having colorful names would be okay.

Thanks for the shove onto the right direction Buk.

Nah, jk.

About the colors: giving Exclusives a different color was one of the things that led to its demise in the first place, people didn't like having such obvious segregation and sense of an inferior status. Exclusive members are members first, and as members you stay the color of a member, which is a stale, nightmare of Pink Floyd shade of white or grey.
