    Suggestion: Staff Username Markup

    I think some kind of staff username markup (bold, italic, color, or even just a rank) should be used. Right now, it is hard to tell who the staff is unless you go to the forum leaders page. It is especially confusing in this forum because you can't tell which threads are official announcements or just suggestions/notices from regular members. That said, maybe you should even implement a separate sub-forum for suggestions/feedback/support.

    It's listed under my username from me Maybe other mods should do the same, as I'm now receiving PM's from users asking if I can do the 2000 links blast.. Than I have to tell them they need solidstate for that

    Well it's kinda funny, but at least I guess like you say it could help if users can easily see who is moderator and who's not.

    Don't know what the other mods are thinking about this?

    Anyone can write Administrator/Moderator or God there, so that just won't fit.

    I agree, you should have different colors like green or red etc.

    I have to agree on that indeed But well, if members complain about this, there should be a fix for it

    You can disable words like that from being used via the AdminCP.

    I don't think it's enough to filter everything, also, none of the admins uses "admin" as a current custom title and only aquarezz uses moderator, so...

    I agree, there should be an easier/instant way of recognition.
