I see the change has taken notice! This change will help minimize confusion on who is who. So if you see a flashy forum icon you can read the title and see what that particular forum rank is.
yeah, colors are super confusing.
you know, ignoring the words that said "forum moderator" or "community manager" under the colored names i always got confused. hell, sometimes i get green and red mixed up and cause car crashes.
as i said in another thread about this, Sony must have little faith in the intelligence of their fans if they are concerned that colors will confuse them.
