I believe that Ed's and James' squares are different colors due to their moderator status.

Jeff S.

We are just not worthy of such distinction....I am lucky, since I am a newbie, that my color did not start as Infrared.  ;D

Ok, here's what the colors mean:
Red: Administrator
Blue: Moderator
Yellow: Everyone else

Then there are various number of stars assigned based on the number of posts. 10 posts gives you the first star (and the "rank" of "Gandy Dancer". Then they go up from there to 8 stars, "Superintendent" (3000 posts.)

At some point I should change the graphics to be little #9 number plates or something clever. If I get some free time.

I thought they were cab-signal aspects.

About 11pm MST  last night (Friday) in the middle of my WW&F post the screen came up saying connection not possible,  gave up after several re-tries and a check of my computer. Anybody else notice? If not, must've been Windows 7 server probs.
Never happened before.

If I won a 2-8-0 locomotive, would that be a Consolidation prize?

Cabin fever? For some of us, going crazy is not such a long trip. (OK, I'll say it before anyone else does, "Speak for yourself, John.")
