Really??! You're using gender-specific colors on our public IDs?

Orange for women.

Black for men.

:D :o :shock:

I think the gold icons mean they were updated since you last logged in. I could be wrong about that, but its easy enough to check. Click a gold icon, follow its path. Then, if you go back to the original page, it should have turned black.

I see two separate functions of "orange" v "black."

One is as you - Mike - just explained ("gold" = "orange").

The other is what I infer you - puc - are observing (and what I am observing). In page views with multiple nics, mine is "orange" and all the rest are "black"!

Is that the phenomena you see, puc? You are "orange", and everyone else "black"?

If auntmartymoo is also "orange" my hypothesis is wrong.

Good morning, Bieramar! Yes, yesterday when I read Minorcanmana13 for the first time, I saw that she, too, had an orange image to the right of her posts, near her avatar. Because there are so few women here, I leaped to my conclusion (and I thought it would be funny to point it out). I could not find AMM's posts quickly, so didn't check her image.

I just did. And AMM's is black, which flushes my observation down the loo. Back to the drawing board...

Mine's black now. Maybe it turns black after one posts?

And orange means one has yet to post for that day?

Or the Russians are meddling with plazabum...

Whether you're black or orange, nobody cares if you're colored.

So is orange the new black, or black the new orange, or are we all Gold when we choose to be?

And my great grandmother was a Goldsmith - what does it all mean?

many years ago i worked at a radio station in michigan...among my myriad duties was creating playlists for live remote broadcasts.
the records were always cued up and ready to play so when our local les nessman called for a song it was ready to rip.

all the boys who did remotes had been made aware that there would always be a song that didn't exist...a ringer...or something in extremely poor taste on the playlist...so for god's sake, read the list before hand.

my ringer for the day's list?
"by boyfriend's black"...by the angels.

our sports caster (and a damn good one btw) was manning the mic that day and didn't heed instructions.
"and here's a great one by the angels..."my boyfriend's black."
and of course within two minutes the phones at the station started ringing off the hook...
"how dare you...?"
"what the hell is going on over there...?
yada yada yada.

and if that wasn't bad enough, while doing live commentary for the parade which he was covering, maybe 5 minutes after the "boyfriend" intro, our announcer said:

"and here comes the mayor of sandusky, a wonderful man who the people of this town would do well to immolate."

it was an interesting day.

I love malapropisms - seemingly a waning art in witty intercourse at the bars I frequent.

Not to interrupt the seemingly important discussion going on here, but has anybody noticed or tried the share to facebook, twitter, google+ buttons at the end of each post? That's handy if you want to post a copy of your latest piece of prose to your wall or your feed and don't have the energy to retype it.

i'll give it a shot this evening...
but...my posts are usually political and i try very hard to keep politics off of my timeline.
most of my friends and family are conservative.
and apparently, i'm not.

I keep my FB page pretty lean. I am not sure I want every post I make here showing up on facebook.
