Okay

Also, Google and Bing are always member that were online, what's that supposed to mean?

I believe they're advertiser bots.

Think they're web crawlers for indexing search results.

Is there a way for posts "posted" to show exact date and time like pre 09/2013 instead of "A week ago"

Apart from hovering your mouse over the top, I don't think there is.  There may be a function in the next version to do this but don't quote me on it.

How come members sigs aren't displayed to guests?

It's always been that way, historically it was done so it didn't affect guests usage when visiting the site, as back in the days of 2002 when this site started, people were still using dial-up or very low broadband which was heavily metered.  So the removal of sigs helped to make the site "lite" for guests to browse without fear of eating away at bandwidth.

 

It's kinda stuck ever since, and I don't really see a need to change it either.  Whilst the sig size limit isn't that intrusive compared to some forums where you can get away with a 1080p wallpaper as a sig; it keeps it all neat and tidy for visitors.

It's always on every forum like this. Avatars, member titles and signatures aren't displayed to guests and you can't check out member profiles. Don't know the exact reason but when you aren't part of the community, there's no need to see personal user stuff anyways. Just sign up.

I came on and this stood out to me.

Never noticed that before. First thought it was messed up but then I notice, not signed in all of them are like that.

Are the lighter logos meant to indicate recent activity and then the darkened ones to indicate the opposite I am assuming?

Glad you have this q&a as especially this not being a glitch like I first thought, would be silly doing a thread xD.

The lighter logos indicate that new posts/topics have been made since you last visited that section. The darker indicates the opposite. You can also click the logo itself to make everything as read.

I'm quite unsure if I missed the post somewhere about this, but will there be an Annual Awards event for 2017? If I recall, the nominations were posted sometime back in November of last year and I believe it wrapped up around the end of December. Either way, just curious; thank you in advance! :)

Before I left the staff there was talk about it. Probably expect a nominations thread in the next couple of weeks or sooner.

The official answer will be and always has been None of our beewaxs, If the mod who banned them cares to explain it then they will but until then it's none of our beewax

 

It turned out he was a Gary Glitter clone and had to be dealt with pronto.........Idk he was probably a PBM on notice and made one too many edgy comments

Yet, somehow, someway, you're still here. Wasn't too long ago when you had the same serial killer wannabe persona  thing going on, almost to the point that I thought Hetero was just one of your alt accounts.
