Oh great, because being 'Great Tree' Jon wasn't bad enough. Why must you pollute my brain so? >.<

Woah, just noticed the new branch and acorn status bar! That's awesome. Does the branch grow as your post count grows, or is it related to your "status" within the group? I noticed admins have orange branches, and some folks have acorns - are those just the mods, or can I aspire to reach the level of "nutness" someday?

me likey!

The way it works right now is somewhat non-intuitive, but we're working on changing it.

Right now:
Non-members (people who aren't officially recognized members of the Great Tree - you can see the official list here) start with an acorn and their branch grows as they post.
Members have a nice sized branch.
"Officers" (all officers are mods, and vice versa) have a green branch with a gold acorn.
"Administrators" (core leadership, also have full admin access to the board) have golden branches with acorns.

We're thinking about making a more distinct branch for members, since once you're a member it doesn't grow (unless you become a mod/officer), but for now, we think it's cool enough that members are their own distinct group.

Edit: Thanks Daed for the great icons! Stay tuned for more changes as we get closer to Live.

I don't see them, I only see the old stars..

Then again, this computer has terrible rendering issues.. drawing weird borders, strange thicknesses, missing background colors and certain text colors.. it's really wonky and I hate it, but can't figure out how to fix it.

I love 'em! Very elegant. I like the concept of the green acorn and its progression, too. Smile Great job, Daed!

I just got home and now I see stars. Is this an IE/Firefox thing?

::checks::

Yes, yes, I believe it is. The branches show up in Explorer but not in Firefox. I use IE at work (yuck, ptew!) and Firefox at home where the branches are nowhere to be seen. Crying or Very sad

Ah, yes, you're right, of course, Marten. Much better.

But are we ready to turn over a new leaf?
