    So I have seen a few posts by newbies who assume that because our names are blue, that we are Moderators of the forum.

    Just to clear this up, and it has been said before: Jr VIPs are just regular members who have paid $97 to the forum over here:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/payments.php
    For the donation, they receive access to the hidden JR Vip area of the forum, plus some other cool stuff.

    PS: Just because a member has a blue name, lots of posts or lots of +rep, doesnt mean they are always correct or trustworthy. If you see anyone blatantly breaking forum rules, the report button is there for a reason.

    We (the staff) encourage our senior members to
    jump in and correct someone when they see that
    something is improperly posted. However, we do
    NOT encourage our senior members to verbally
    bash people. The higher your rank on BHW, the
    more you are expected live up to that rank.

    Blue names? Never noticed these.
    Could be because I'm color blind?

    Beefor I culdnt speel muderatar, nou I r won. :cool:

    In all seriousness, as Wiz said, we always appreciate the members that assist by telling others when they've strayed outside the lines - as long as you can do it without verbally flogging them. lol

    OS
    PS. Even a colorblind person could tell the difference between yellow and blue - the colors are pretty different in density. :p

    Members with 1000s of posts and reps are known as Senior Members, you should have to follow them instead of opening a thread to let us know that they aren't mods. One more thing, the selection of moderators also depends that how senior, helpful and your contribution's for this great community, The Black Hat World.

    Some of us Blue guys feel the need to step in. Of course we are not mods, though. Normally, I hit the report button and have actually seen Wiz and OS handle the situation quite quickly. So the report button does work, however, a little friendly push in the right direction from a seasoned member doesn't hurt.

    We are not Mods,we are Jr.vip, BTW I guess an educated man can see the title with our usernames. I haven't seen any Jr.vip saying that he is MOD.

    Damn, I'm not a mod what a total bummer. Not really, being a mod on BHW is like herding cats, it can be done but it's just not a pretty sight!

    My thanks go out to WizGizmo and to the other mods for managing this forum.
