Even though I have a "Developer" role on this forum. I am still new to forum software and I was wondering what the green blocks on the left of my posts met.

Hi pizzalovingnerd,

Here is my interpretation:
Green indicates Developer status. Red indicates Administrator status. Blue indicates Moderator status. Everyone else gets Gold blocks (or yellow -- I can't tell exactly what the color is).  ;D 8)

Do you know what each block means. Some people have 1 block, some people have 5.

SMF Administrative fluff... custom member groups https://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/SMF2.0:Membergroups#Settings


yikes we've got nearly 5,000 accounts with one post or less.

Don't read too much into it... once you're up to 3 blocks you're basically an active user, its purely arbitrary, I didn't even notice this until you asked. ... I only have 5 as a technicality for being a "Red Shirt"  :D

Aww shucks, josephd, I was really starting to like the idea that I was perhaps a big honcho ...  :P
