    I have a white name, while it is very cool, I suspect it's unintentional, as I can see it doesn't apply to all Jr VIP's.

    I think it's because of the posts count or I'm wrong ?
    Edit: Nah I'm wrong. http://www.blackhatworld.com/members/

    The new design of BHW is so 2005. And also, some members (including me) can't change the signature.

    I would like your second mention please. I hate feeling left out.

    P.S - The new look of the place looks shit cool really. Can't quite put my finger on it but it just looks better already. Good job everyone involved

    When I post a reply on one of my BST threads the post is marked as:

    This message is awaiting moderator approval, and is invisible to normal visitors.

    Is this a glitch or was I transported to the naughty step?

    I am missing the option to change the background color to white. Black background color hurts my eyes. will this option be back or is it gone forever ?

    I don't think it's just you. @Ste Fishkin mentioned the same thing on another thread.

    Hover cursor over your username (top right of every page) and from the drop down menu go to "preferences" and you can select the white background. White text on black background makes my eyes hurt too.

    Just a glitch - no naughty step for you (yet). Should be working fine now.
