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 :-)

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.

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!

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

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..

It's a tooltip and should show up regardless of browser.

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.
