Mouse over the green icon and it shows that. Not just me but a lot of members have this designation. Why?

Thanks for the heads up I am looking in to what is going on. That should only show when your Reputation is more than -50 which its not. Your current reputation is currently at +10 I dont know why that is showing.

It's just a fun status reflecting how much you participate on the forums.

I'm an unknown entity but I used to be an idiot LOL (Some might say i still am!) ;)

Don't take it too seriously Techblogger. :)

Your not an Idiot any more I had to reset the field in the Admin panel. That was odd if you guys see things like that let me know I will get it worked out.

I'm surprised you didn't know about it, i noticed as soon as I joined the forums way back in January and thought nothing of it, I found it rather amusing. :)

I guess not everyone shares my amusement.

It’s just one of those things I never look at. Some of this stuff was set up a long time ago before I got here so I just haven’t messed with it. As I get deeper in to things I find more and more stuff I would have done differently. I can’t find it all without you guys help so please if you see something like that let me know make a post or PM me.

I didn't take it too seriously Weebear. Especially when I found many contributors to the forum have the same designation. lol. But to have it there at all is just, well, rude. Noobs, Yeomen, DOS, Windows 3.0 I mean I've seen all of these stepping stones but referring to noobs as "idiots" well I needed to ask whats up. It won't stop me from posting but it looks out of place for WPCentral. :)

Agree 100% only time you should ever see that is if someone is just trolling and getting hit with a lot of bad rep. It should be fixed now but if you guys see it again let me know.

Hey it's an injustice, i'm still an unknown quantity!

OK Techblogger have you got some dirt on Dave and you blackmailed him ?

You can tell me, I won't tell a soul, honest! ;)

I noticed this a few days ago, but just as Techblogger mentioned, many recognized, distinguished posters shared my idiotic status. So I just let it be.

Thanks for fixing it, Big D5.
