Usernames are greyed out?


Is this a new feature I missed? I’ve noticed some people’s usernames are grey—I thought it was for newcomers but some people’s accounts indicate they joined last year or even farther back. I was just curious what it meant!


Haven’t seen that yet.


I have seen it but not much(i just joined here) I thought it just means they blocked you or their account isn’t accessible no more.


I’ve clicked on some and they didn’t seem to be banned or blocking me, and they were still active on the forum when I saw it! :thinking: I’d take a screenshot the next time I saw one but I wouldn’t want to call anyone out randomly lol.


Maybe they’re online and inactive?


The person I saw was posting actively for a few days, that’s how I first noticed it! :thinking: But in their case, they were also brand new, so I dunno haha! Maybe it’s just “time spent on the forum” instead of “how recently was the account created”! I just didn’t know if that feature was present before!


ah, i mean inactive as in ‘afk’


It means they’re new(-ish). They’re not “full members” of the forum yet.


Ah, gotcha! I guess I just never noticed it before then, haha!


does that mean mines gray as well? I don’t know if it is


Yours is not, not to me! That’s the weird bit that I can’t figure out, lol!


I’m new, let’s see if my name is grey :thinking:


How new you are isn’t dependent on when you joined but rather what you’ve done on the forum since joining.

I think.


Pretty much this.
