Like the idea of the different colour tags for members. However, I am have extreme difficulty in distinguishing between the colours used for Members, and New Members. Could the SF not be radical and use purple or green or some other colour as both colours used seem the same to me. Just a thought.

Thank you for your suggestion, and I completely understand your viewpoint. I experimented with the same colour but bold for members, but I felt this gave too much visual emphasises to the member group over the premium groups. I also didn't want to add another colour there as I feel there are too many colours there already.

So I have decided to keep it how it currently is.

@ChrisSIlver I’m only seeing the coloured names in the menus (see first pic below). Inside the threads themselves there are no different colours and all names are in black (see second pic below).  This is on safari browser on iPhone.

Colours...

They appeared in-thread for me initially (Firefox), but now on threads the only place I see them is in the reactions.

The silver one is quite hard to see on the white background!

The forum is responsive when you reduce the size of a window all the way down to a mobile screen size then it automatically changes the text to just black for the username, this is how the native software works. I presume that was done in order to be able to clearly read the username when browsing through posts,.

That's probably it.  I just tried what you said on Chrome and it acted exactly how you describe.

@Goldhooked I will check with the software company to see if that is intended or if they just missed the coloured names when you click on a topic.

It's come and gone at least once on Firefox (PC). I think it went when I was suddenly able to leave 'superlikes' for a short time (which I don't like - I think it splits the community further). I then came back a short while later and refreshed. The username colours were suddenly back on full screen on PC, and my superlikes were both gone and no longer available to me. I had to simply 'like' the posts again.

My notifications (and the forum 'activity') say I have received one of these 'superlikes' today but it doesn't show up on the post in question so that's still not working.

@kimchi this topic here is in regards to the colour of members names. As previously stated it currently changes when you change the size of the screen. When you minimise the screen to a mobile size it then doesn't show the colour of the member group, this is something that I have asked if it is was intended to be like this or not by the software developer.

In regards to superlikes, that is a separate thing not connected to the colour member groups names. The plugin for spearlike requires an update, as soon as it is available I will update it and it should solve any issues with that. My last contact with the developer of that particular plugin, they said they would update it sometime after this weekend.

I thought you might be interested to know that the colour of names on threads was completely unrelated to screen size on (Firefox) PC for a while.

I only mentioned the superlikes because I was able to give them for some reason at the very same time that the colours were not working as you or the software chappies intended, so they seemed connected possibly.

Just trying to tell you what the user experience is in the hope it might help!

Thanks. Most likely caused by the latest update of forum software and not all previous plugins are updated to the latest version, the latest version of software has just been released and there is a lot go custom work on the forum, not all of it has been updated yet, but the majority of things have been. 2 plugins have been updated but just awaiting to be upload, meanwhile the spearlike feature is awaiting an update by the author, then that would have been everything sorted for this version of software.

I've recently noticed a new heading format for items in the for sale section;

1819521058_platsale.jpg.796e11c8137ceef7dec3a3a227b8a420.jpg

Is this style going to be expanded in the future to specify sales by Gold, Silver and non-paying members, or is it somehow supposed to suggest that Platinum members' sales are somehow special? Or maybe that it is likely to be a sale by a dealer?

NB No implied meaning intended to the platinum member whose sale I capped😉

Highlighting the trade listings from Platinum Members has always been a feature of Platinum Premium Membership (was orignally called Established Premium Memebrship) No plans to change that or to introduce different tags for other member groups.

Understood but surely introducing an emphasis such as this must be for a reason, or is it just a feature of the software that you have no control over?

To say it is a base benefit of platinum membership i.e. pay the most membership, means it must be regarded as that, a benefit or advantage.

Logically then, this advantage should be explained somewhere to ordinary members so that they understand that sales by platinum members are somehow better and safer than others.  We all realise that those who pay most for their membership will clearly offer the best deals and be more trustworthy than everyone else.

@sovereignsteve that feature is described in the store as the following:

Quote
  • Platinum Premium Member Prefix on topics in the buy & sell trade section (Makes your topic more prominent to attract buyers) 

You can interpret that how you wish.

There will later be another more major benefit to Platinum Premium membership which addresses your comments, this feature would also benefit buyers.  I don't want too give to much away, this has alrady been stated in the Platinum forum section though and my plan is to introudce it sometime this year. So keep an eye out and I am sure you will be pleased later on in the year.
