Hi, just came to ODN, tis very good. Can someone explain why the blobs under your name are different colours?

Little green blobs mean someone is currently online. Black ones mean someone is not currently online (or possibly invisible).

The golden smilie is the rep feature which allows you to positive rep posts you feel are particularly good, and negative rep posts you feel are particularly bad.

The red blob with the (!) in it is to report a post or user or something. I'm not sure. I can't recall ever using it.

Welcome to ODN.

Or is he talking about the rep point indicator? The whole mess of little two-tone green blobs...

Yes to Ladyphoenix, the two shades of green blobs directly under join date, location, posts, quotes.

Yeah, those are green if you have positive reputation and red if you have negative reputation. An excellent example of neg rep bars could be found on the profile (or any posts) of Gaius. It's basically an indicator of the number of positive or negative rep points you have.

That was a thinly veiled code for never share the same view as Gaius:grin:

That was a thinly veiled code for never share the same view as Gaius:grin:Not really. I just figured he should be able to see an example of the red blobs. :)
