    Some ABW Members Have no balls.
    I was bored, so I decided to look around the new board and check some new features:

    First, I noticed the new color of some members name:

    RED - Administrator
    BLUE - Affiliate Manager
    GREEN - Moderator
    NAVY - The rest of us.
    BROWN or PURPLE - For our Balls (or pips, if you prefer a different word for those balls)

    I also noticed that those important members don't have any balls, they just have their name in a different color.

    Big deal, while the rest of us don't have our name with any fancy color and we're stuck with that default old Navy color, at least, once we're no longer a Newbie, we can have some balls (or pips, if you prefer a different word for those balls) under our members name around here.

    So we too can carry some weigh around here, even if our balls are Brown or Purple.

    I also tried the Ignore List Feature to see how it works but, since I would never put any member of ABW on the Ignore list, I put my own name on it to test it.
    Well, this is what I got: Sorry, you can not add yourself to your own ignore list.

    So, since the Delete Post don't exist on the new board, The Edit Button only last for 15 minutes and I can't add myself to my own ignore list, I guess I must learn to live with my own annoying posts like this one, that I make some times and also with my Brown or Purple balls until one day in the near future when I become a contender and have my name in color too.

    Do you think it's possible to set ball colour to temperature? So the East Coast of the USA in the last couple of weeks would be blue, those living in SE Asia would have red maybe, pink for an ideal comfort level (depending on racial origin). Or moods - purple for passion, brown for depressed. I'd rather have the ability to put mine in a little bag out of public gaze.

    My apologies.
    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    Thor was usually portrayed as a large, powerful man with a red beard and eyes of lighting.
    Are you going to grow a red beard now?

    Maybe some next to the pips for the best post of the day, the week or the month.

    Maybe the pic of a for the members the have won one and if they win another just add it next to the first one, that way at the end of the year we'll see who won the most

    Maybe another kind of pic. for those that make a very important post at any moment.

    Maybe another kind of pic. for those that find a merchant or an affiliate cheating or up-to no good.

    Maybe a special pic. for the member that catch the most Newbie Spammers in a week. (I have this idea since last year, when I noticed a member here that was right on target every time that someone show up with a can of and he was the first one to say it. )

    Others may have better ideas so I will yield the to the page.

    If this is for everytime a person finds a cheater Ms.B would have no room left for her posts.

    I like the t-shirt image idea, thats probably the only thing I've ever won

    I've got four stomachs because I'm a cow. Does that count?

    The colours are lost on me.. I can't tell most of them apart anyway!
