So I must have been absent from school that day......can someone tell me what the little buttons signify on the avatars...why some people have more than others, why some are colored and some are see through?
1980 Janome (aka Joan...she's no nonsense or frills),  Bernina 710 (aka Bernice), Juki TL2010Q,  1917 27K treadle (aka Gertie), 1957 99k (aka Vincent), 1951 99k knee lever (aka Shirley), 1950 99k handcrank (aka Alice), 1927 28K (aka Dora).

Yep, just found the answer myself...should've looked more first before asking. Eeek, it was sort of like a "boy look"...you know: "where's my socks?"
         "Have you looked in the sock drawer?"
         "nuh, didn't think of that!"

Do we have a blushing/embarassed icon yet?

I think it's this |O but perhaps some red on the cheeks would help to identify it.

Haha yes we call that a "little boys look".

I just say "well I know where they are. So you should too".

So I get Fran's 4 black buttons, subscriber's four green/clear ones, one black one for registered members, but I've now seen two black ones and I'm sure a one clear button - what are they for??  And is there an explanation for the one with bunting for those of us who don't know?

This might help. "Borrowed" from an admin screen (Shhhh, don't tell the others)

As for the bunting - I can only assume that Demented Fairy loves bunting! I believe it is a carry over from the old place.
Head butler to a Siamese cat.
Iminei's husband & chauffeur to quilting emporia.
When she asked me if I wanted to be her slave this wasn't at all what I had in mind.

I hate bunting.  Hate it.  Loathe it.  It's a running joke from the old site [The Old Sewing Site =TOSS had you noticed?]
It makes me so happy. *grits teeth* >:)

Oh Madam, I am quite distressed to hear that bunting is not to your taste. Upon discovering the cruel joke that has been played I naturally tried to correct the unfortunate situation. However I seem to have been locked out of this part of the system and I almost blew a fuse trying to reassign your bunting.

The bunting appears to have been hard coded into the system firmware. There is only one person who can undo this deed. And Francesca is, I understand, away for the weekend.
Be excellent to one another

I'm away-ish I'll be back at my computer Monday. Perhaps if you're nice I can remove the torture.
