Post subject: What are the pictures next to the usernames?

You may have noticed (and been wondering about) the pictures seen under certain user's names when they post. At the current time, the only options shown are "moderator badges". These badges or icons are used to show you which users have offered their time and assistance in keeping Bob (BusinessObjects Board, or this forum) running smoothly. The images are various colors of this:

For more details on the moderator team, you can read the team description.

These pictures also show up in the memberlist, which you can only view if you are registered and logged in.

These "badges" are actually called avatars, and are currently limited to administrators and moderators. Eventually we will allow active users to select their own avatar as well.

We're coming up on our second anniversary of the forum. You may notice that some of the "old timers" have a number of stars by their name like this one:

The stars are a way for us to recognize longevity. Many folks have been members of the forum for a long time, but are shy. The don't post much, but they still participate in the forum. So a while back we added a feature that displays one star for each year of membership. You'll start to see more and more stars, double-stars, and eventually even triple stars as BOB ages.
