    I feel I shouldn't post in this as I'm the newbie but as a moderator for another forum, it's someone who makes themselves part of the furniture of the forum as it were, I for instance have only been a member for 2 months but I recognise "faces" already.

    SNGX and Howard are 2 I seem to see around the forum a lot.

    So these forums have been running nearly 10 years?

    I think it represents registered members who have been active (visited or posted) for the past 90 days.

    Thanks Julio. I take by the "I think" bit, you`re not totally sure?

    Like I said, I know it`s not important, it was just something that made me curious.

    Regards Howard :)

    For some reason I remember talking about this somewhere else, and I think it is also something like 90 days. The system does it in the background.

    Of course someone can easily go from inactive to active, just by visiting or posting.
