    I didn't mind the badges, I just thought they were impossible to read in the who's online list. Seriously, they were so distracting and at a glance you couldn't tell whether the badge belonged to the person it was in front of or behind of, which completely goes against the whole point of having them in the first place. (I assume they're there to differentiate members but if it's unclear unless you're squinting which member the badge is for...? Yeah, what's the point?)

    I think your symbols/colours idea is cute too but I fear it would have the same can't-tell-at-a-glance-who-it's-for problem that I had with the badges. They're less obnoxious though, so if username colours become a thing of the past I'd prefer those over anything else. :x

    Also the badges weren't centred right on posts which was driving me crazy to look at. For staff/supporters who had no descenders in their username, the badge looked so misplaced on the line. ><;

    Though whatever you guys decide to go with, I'm gonna try to be more accepting of, though i hope no one minds feedback because as a member of a forum, we should be allowed to give feedback.
    That would've been cool, yeah!

    I LOVE the asterisk scheme. Really. It looks so simplistic.

    I really didn't think I was and I guess it's not. It seems most forums follow that same format, and that seems to work best I guess unfortunately. And as unfair as that may seem, i guess that's how it goes.

    I prefer the colored usernames more than the tags beside them, just me. I think the badges on the postbit are fine as is as well, this is all just my opnion, I don't see what's so bad about liking the current username styles, nothing wrong with prefering the way things are. I just didn't like the look of the tags :/ I know and am aware that I am just a user but that is my input. I hope the usernames will stay colored instead of having the tags beside them.

    As an experiment, it was fine.

    Permanently, it actually makes them stand out more, because you have that chunky button going "STAFF MEMBER". xD; That's how they popped out to me, anyhoo. They're going to stand out either way. A rank is a rank, no matter what it looks like.

    I'm fine with people not being accustomed to change, but not until they've given the new stuff a chance. If you just let things such as this, which was simply an example of a fleeting experiment, bother you, then how can you ever hope to see things that must change actually change in the future? That's my only issue with what happened.

    And even though there is some color, I don't think it's enough, all the members look the same and the colors on staff too isn't too much. Having the color for staff/supporters just make them easier to identify than that small badge.

    I believe compromise is better than half the forum having to put up with something they think is hideous.
    Which is also a huge shame because people who are resistant to change are also people who I think are holding a lot of things from progressing.

    I hate how the solution to every problem these days has become a toggle to switch something on or off. People don't like rank images have an option to toggle those off for text. People who don't like these new experimental ranks now want a toggle for that. These days, the quick solution to appease for everyone and everything is a toggle option in the User CP and I think that's a shame just as I think its a shame people can't learn to adapt to change that doesn't even make that much of a difference. The color is still there, and an immediate title is shown to people who don't know what the color means.

    No. That isn't how it works. Being members of the forum doesn't entitle you to input on decisions just as being customers of a particular company doesn't entitle you to decisions on their products. I'm sorry if that comes across as rude, but that's how it is. That's how it is for moderators as well, unless it directly relates to their forum. Community decisions are made by the higher staff, not by the community as a whole. You're entitled to put feedback into whatever is done, but that feedback is simply feedback and may or may not dictate what the outcome of a particular experiment is.

    Though I do feel I myself was being a bit too dramatic last night and I'm sorry for that. I feel bad for over reacting to an experiment. If you guys feel it's necessary to change the usergroups that's fine but i feel it would be better if you at least keep the color cause too me none of the staff stand out as much with just plain letters at the symbol

    So I think if it's like this
    Username Username Username and then the same for supporter with the new badges and username that would be simple, yet stand out without being too "loud". I think the colors make it more obvious that whose staff and who isn't and it's more identifiable that way.

    That was a part of my reaction as well. I thought it was a bit ridiculous how extremely they reacted to the whole affair.

    While I could understand the reasons behind one or two of the many objections that were there, I didn't think those were anything negative enough to warrant feeling the same way.
