    Thanks for posting this.

    I think all userbars should have the same design. Not sure why everything goes together besides 2 Elite Membership bars, Team Jimzo-F, and Accused/Convicted Scammer.

    EDIT: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    You posted this in OP. You should just move that, close/move this, and add onto it/change the title. Also add role descriptions and boom.

    That thread has a different purpose. It lists all current staff and their roles only not the other stuff so I kept them separate but I get what you mean by that.

    The scammer bars are from 2008, Jimzo-F isn't an actual userbar in itself, and all the elite bars are the same as the last 2, not sure why anywhere on the forum is using the other ones.

    I suppose the "Special" userbars don't matter too much as far as matching goes.

    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: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].

    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.

    What's the point in showcasing this, since the bars no longer show up in the postbit and some admins want to dissolve them (extremely stupid idea btw).
