    I must say, you caught me from left-field this time, Flex :)

    You'll find (and it has been the case for a while now) that all the Moderators are quite Blue - Bluer than most, I'm afraid. It has much to do with the general anguish,upset and anxiety imposed upon us (at our own behest, I must add) in our day-to-day quest to maintain some semblance of order around the madhouse that is CertForums :cry:

    Or maybe its just cos thats what SimonV chose for us ....

    I take it you are refering to the users online / users that have been online today box at the bottom of the main forum index?

    Its because he is a forum Mod. phpBB (the codebase behind these forums) make mods of boards bold to highlight they are online should users need to message them or shout for help ect :)

    So Nelix, SimonV and a few others will be blue - infact you can view all the mods of certforums by clicking on the CertForums Moderators link under the decription of each forum. SimonV might appear Red as an admin - depending on how he has the place set up 8)

    Or use this link: http://www.certforums.co.uk/forum/groupcp.php?g=24

    Can't believe they've always been bluer, I'm sure I've seen your names lighter.

    Now if blue were to be so so blue then would it get so dark that it would become another colour.But then it couldn't become another colour, because that would be that blue is just a lighter colour of another colour, no matter how dark the blue is.In fact if all colours ultimatley become other colours, then the colour in the first place is just a lighter colour of the next colour, or the colour after that.How can their be so many colours, I mean what is light blue, light compared with what, pink, well no pink is nowhere near blue, but it must become blue sometime because all colours are effectively the same colour, so blue is a shade of pink, your names might as well be pink and we'd just say that it's a form of the same colour, which going by a raindow effect is white, all colours are white.But hold on, we couldn't possibly have the screen completely white, I mean we wouldn't know who the moderators where if that where the case.Unless they were pink, yes white on pink, no no that would look awful, Jakamoko in brigth pink, no, black would be better, well not black, maybe a darker colour of blue, which will become black eventually, just make sure you catch it before it becomes pink.
    Hmmmm :hhhmmm

    Ah, but have you considered the relative Absorption spectra involved across the full Electromagnetic range, of which the "visible spectrum" we know as White Light is a mere narrow band ? Taken in the context of that which the rods and cones of the compound human eye are capable of discerning, and coupled with the Refractive indices of any given media through which we view said spectrum (hence, the "rainbow" effect to which you alluded previously), one could conclude that it is safe to assume that all that is black is white, and vice versa.

    In summary, dark blue=Moderator - end of story.

    Now the first person that mentions trees, forests, hearing, etc, is on a final warning !!! :snipersm:
