    Yeah, I'm wondering who will be the first to abuse that thing here. Cause Viv demanded her own rank because of the whole Amyrlin-gotta-be-elitist thing, and anyone can put it on there. :look

    Thank you. :)
    So, now I know how I can figure out (sometimes) to which group the people belong.

    Re: Quick way to find out Ajah's?

    In another community (mine *cough*) we used to color the usernames in the color of their affiliation. Could that be an option here as well?

    Re: Quick way to find out Ajah's?

    Admins, mods, etc. already have colored usernames. I'm not sure how the two would interact/overlap. Although it'd be kinda funny to see the letters alternating colors. :p

    Re: Quick way to find out Ajah's?

    Yes, but I don't think that admin and mod colors are that important, as important roles like Amyrlin, Mayor and so on have it in their title anyway.

    I know the color-system, and it was always a great good thing. :)

    But do the companies here have colors at all?

    Ah ok. So there are colors used twice. :) But a Gaidin is truely no Aes Sedai. So that can't be a problem. :)

    Maybe it would be possible to choose slightly different colors :cheese

    Re: Quick way to find out Ajah's?

    A Gaidin is not an Aes Sedai and an Aes Sedai is not a Gaidin, but they are equal in every way.

    Re: Quick way to find out Ajah's?

    Yes, sure. I never questioned that. - I only ment if nicknames were in the ajah/company-color it wouldn't be a problem that there were AS/Gaidin in the same color, as a Gaidin is a Gaidin, and an AS is an AS.

    Re: Quick way to find out Ajah's?

    Well, we don't identify Companies by color. Their logos have their colors, and sometimes they'll wear clothes or sashes or cloaks in their color at real life events, but otherwise colors aren't referenced much. You'd say someone is a Gaidin of DM, Gaidin of SDS, or some similar phrase. :)

    Re: Quick way to find out Ajah's?

    The problem with using colours to show affiliation is that we have the White Ajah :look We also have the Grey Ajah, so we can't use that as the colour for White :p

    Re: Quick way to find out Ajah's?

    Speaking of username identification, what does the "+" after some of the active user ids indicate?

    Re: Quick way to find out Ajah's?

    If I can't recall someone's affiliation, I search them in the library and it always says near the top of their profile.
