I have a little dot just under my avatar and if I hover the cursor over it it tells me that

"Jonzjob is an unknown at this point".

Pray tell, what does that mean?

I never noticed that before.
Mine says " McBie is a name known to all " .

I guess this is one for the mod's to answer :-) .... looks like a secret message :-)

Cheers ... McBie

It's just a term associated with the reputation level of the member. As the number of green dots changes/increases...the phrase changes. All internet forums works this way. Each reputation level (number of dots) gets assigned some sort of "fun" term/phrase.

In that case, I would like to keep mine as it is today ..... makes me feel good :-)

Maybe I'm color blind, but I see little blue dots. The big dot is green if the member is online.

McBie, I have fewer dots than you, but take a look at what mine says!

Nice gold stars and the rank name is bound to champagne bottle sizes.

Do you know who "Melchizedek" was? Quite an honor if you've been assigned that name. ;)

Must be a Safari thing? I get nothing on hover.

You can click on User CP link above and that should, I believe, show you the reputation you've received. You should see any note the giver left, but you won't see the person dishing out the repo though..

Never noticed the "hover" comments before. I learn something new every day around here!

Ah, that's why. I have those annoying tooltips turned OFF in Firefox :)

That's the MAIN reason I quit using Safari. I don't need a yellow box popping up every time I hover over something for longer than a half second. And you cant turn it off!!

And changing the time with defaults changes EVERYTHING and sometimes you just need a tooltip.

He was the king of Salem. Isn't that a bit of New York? And there were I thinking that you Trans Atlantic cousins were a democracy that didn't have kings?:Evil:

Tooltips? I thought they were the likkle bits you interchanged on the end of yer screwdriver?

XJ, you really do learn something new every day me-thinks ;)

He was the king of Salem.

Like I said, quite an honor especially if you've read the Book of Genesis. While we don't officially have a king, there are some in Washington DC who think they're just that. ;P
