    I just realized that all moderators handles has been changed to red color. It makes the forum kinda weird because red names are usually used for banned members, and in certain cultures writing your name in red is a taboo because it signifies extreme bad luck... Maybe change it to lime or something else... red is weird.

    I browsed a little today, and each time a mod posts, I thought it was a banned member..lol

    I saw [7878] post somewhere and thought he was banned.
    I was like "HE JUST BECAME A MOD?!"

    Haha, it is quite confusing.

    I'm pretty sure if I keep typing in this blue/green shade that one day I'll wake up and find they've changed my name to it! ;)

    The color red is intimidating.

    I think people are just noticing this because there are a few more mods around than before.

    Also, if I am not mistaken banned red and mod red are 2 different shades of red.
