    I have noticed that some dealers here have there name in green... Does this mean something? If so, how do I achieve that, whatever it means?

    This year I have made several transactions here with ss members, particularly with my piezo mods. I am probably up to a couple dozen or so.

    Do dealer transactions qualify for an iTrader rating? Should I have had my customers give me a rating? If so, is it too late to have them do so?

    Thanx,

    I think this is wrong forum btw, but I am pretty sure green is for MVP's, guys who have been on the forum for a long long time and post alot of constructive posts (?). You'd have to have a mod or admin to give you the green status I assume. or, you could contribute to the forum and get the contributor status.

    Green name (MVP) blue name (moderators) colours are not related to the transactions...

    The green colour was in the old days when Chris was the admin, he did occasionally offer the green title to some members who did help him out for the needs of the forum, like for exemple Darren who created the sevenstring logo... (some MVP's also have moderator power)

    Most of those members who did help Chris had an MVP title...

    Some other members who are not MVP titled also did receive a custom colour on some very rare occasions for the same reasons...

    This can't happen anymore, you wont have your name colour changed because its a new admin and Chris is now in another forum of his own...

    When I started in the forum I always thought that MVP ment ''most valuable player'' or ''most valuable poster'' but it does not...

    And yes this thread must go in the forum support section....

    The guys with the dark green names were made MVPs by our old admin because they're generally cool guys and helpful posters - it has nothing to do with being vendors or anything like that. There'll probably never be anymore MVPs appointed because only the admin can appoint them and the current admin doesn't even know anyone here, much less care. We've tossed around the idea of a vendor tag, but again, it's an admin thing.

    As far as iTrader ratings go, they only apply to deals made in the Guitars/Gear/General FS threads - they probably should apply to the Dealers/Group Buys forum too but someone must have forgot to check the iTrader box when they made that forum and, once again, only the admin can switch it on. You seem to have a decent rep around here so far so I wouldn't sweat it.

    On another subject how do I get more green boxes for my profile?

    You know, the thing that says 'Harnesses the souls of a 1000 dead viking lords'

    Right now I only have one... I feel, insignificant...

    Be cool. :cool: They're just rep bars that appear as you receive more and more "reputation" (click the little scales beneath my name and give me some while you're at it ;)0. It's nothing to worry about, really. There are a few really cool guys with much less reputation than they deserve, and a few complete arse-pirates that have far too much of the stuff. :lol:

    I know this is off subject, but shouldnt we have an admin that actually cares about SS.org? If he is never around and doesnt care, then I really dont feel comfortable contributing to the forum.........which is something that I would do if I knew it was really supporting the site. Just throwing that out there.

    • Be a constructive member for a long time or someone those members idolise.
    • Never ask to be green
    • If you do ask only do so whilst performing sexual favours (you will not be made green but we appreciate the sentiment)
    • Have an active admin

    The Rep system was intended to indicate people who know their stuff and are helpful, it failed. The easiest way to get rep now sadly is to be a post whore with the majority of your posts being entertaining.

    Wouldn't that be nice. Alex cares about the site just in a different way to the rest of us. Money talks, I am sure that if someone made the right offer they could become the new Admin :lol:, simply based on inflated stats I am guessing the figure would have to start with a 3 or higher and be 5 figures, after that a good admin would clean the place up effectively halving the value, unfortunately the best I can offer right this moment is my :2c: but sit tight because where there is a will there is a way and I have the first and I am working on the second.

    Nobody on the mod team is attractive enough to perform sexual favors for.

    When that poster said he didn't feel comfortable contributing he was being literal, ie he he doesn't feel comfortable making Paypal donations to an admin who doesn't do anything and has no bearing on the tone or content of the boards, and I don't blame him.
