I moved the title: it used to be above the avatar, now it's below. Sometimes there's confusion about the title looking like the name (when it's actually in the bar above the post) so maybe this little change will help with that.

For future reference: global templates > userInfoPane
"Basically, I think the general rule of thumb is: if someone really wants the blood that's inside of your body, and they're like a vampire, or a dracula, or some sort of man-squito, then that's probably okay. A dracula and a man-squito are made for removing things like blood and swords from inside your body. That's basically fine. If something wants to get at your blood and they're, say, some kind of murdersaurus, or maybe a really big frog, that's where the problems start to arise. A really big frog is not made for removing blood, and your blood knows this, which is why it is so vehement about wanting to stay in your body instead of coming out. Unfortunately this will not deter a really big frog because a really big frog is full of things like prizes, and value, and quite a lot of hatred, and it would really rather like to replace any and all of those things with your blood, and basically by any means possible." --slumbermancer

Good idea. Now we just have to convince people that the badge isn't the username either. :happy-04:

Confusion? If they can't work out where other members' names are, having seen where their name is located, then they are beyond any help we might offer.

 

You should leave it where it is as an initiative test for site membership.


If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.

If you think about it and look around, sure you can tell that the username is somewhere else. But Jacques' title, for example, really looks like a username. And I've seen a few people get called "Newbie".
Honestly, putting the username above seems odd to me. That blue bar looks like spacing between posts and it wouldn't be hard to visually skip past it and go right to the little label above the user's avatar.

But I wouldn't mind IQ tests for... well, most parts of life. Programming. Voting. Buying a home. It's discriminatory but it would save lots of people lots of time and hassle.

What do you mean Guru?  :happy-04:


To save time, let's just assume I am never wrong.

The XY problem is asking about your attempted solution (X) rather than your actual problem (Y). This leads to enormous amounts of wasted time and energy, both on the part of people asking for help, and on the part of those providing help.
