    In this thread you will see all the userbars on NextGenUpdate and what they represent as we are sometimes asked what they mean.


    Memberships



    Elite





    Elite is a paid subscription that offers it's subscribers many different features to choose from. Elite members have access to profile customizations such as colors, user title backgrounds, Intro text, name changes, as well as access to the ELITE forums and dashboard. Elite members also have permission to sell products and services and many other features. If you're interested in purchasing an Elite subscription (prices range from $6.99 - $109.99) you can do so here.

    Premium




    Before Elite membership there were Premium membership which eventually got replaced by Elite. Premium's have permission to sell on NextGenUpdate like Elite members can just no customization features like colors. Premium members (not to be confused with former staff) have orange usernames with an italic style. Premium's also cannot access today's Elite only features and Elite forums, However Premium members can access the Premium section which was brought back.

    Content Creator




    Content Creators are responsible for creating content for NGU such as: mod menus, modding tools, tutorials and other various useful applications and resources.

    Former Staff




    When staff are demoted or retired and no longer part of the staff team they are put into a former staff usergroup which has this bar on their profile. The username whether its bold orange or normal orange also signifies their position and term as staff.

    Special

    However, I'm not sure where you got 2008 from, my friend. I've been active since 2010 and didn't see those until early 2011. Here's a link of the announcement thread of the Accused/Convicted Scammer userbars: here u go.

    How often are these userbars implemented? I don't see them too much throughout the normal forums.

    Thanks for taking the time to clear that stuff up.
    2011 then, whatever fucking year - they're old. They're all used on profiles and that's literally it. I'm not even sure why we have any anymore.

    I agree, so get rid of them! They don't seem too vital to the running of the website anymore. I personally don't find myself on peoples profiles too much unless I'm looking for a specific thing, and I didn't even notice up until yesterday that they're nowhere on the forums themselves.
