Bans: now with free lifetime-Premier!

Posted by Zeene , in Spotted Stuff Mar 25 2013 · 135 views

Note: This isn't me complaining about or questioning the bannage of anyone, in particular or in general; it is just me pointing something out that some of you might've not noticed. Oh, and in case you didn't notice: this is nowhere near serious.

 

Hey, as some of you know, most member's usergroup looks like this:

And when you spend some cash in an awesome way, it magically starts looking like this:

As you might see, the magic (that was most likely cast from this fellow's glowing hand) automagnatically makes your title look bold. Seriously, how awesome is that? =D
But now let's look at this third usergroup.....

Yyyep, that's a bold typeface alright.
My guess is that this is a passive-aggressive taunt from the Staff towards the people that they ban: they get lifelong free Premier Membership, but don't get to enjoy it. Mwahahahaaa.....  Well, either that, or it's just a style-decision. Nah, of course it isn't, that'd just be blatantly ridiculous.

I noticed it as well, but I eventually decided it was so that the fuschia would be more visible.

Actually, both the banned member and the premier member typeface/bolding on BZPower was put in place years before Bulltop (Black Six) ever became an administrator.  Jon (Dimensioneer) or Kelly (Binkmeister) would be the glowing hand that put that in place (I'd suspect Jon).

 

It's my understanding that Jon still handles the Premier Membership program, too, making it one of the few Administrator duties not handled by Bulltop.

I've noticed and I think I even asked about it once. Apparently the reason is that apparently a pink text is supposed to amplify the shame when bold. :P

Luckily for them, gender roles and associations aren't as set in stone as they used to be anymore.

Actually, I was wondering: does Bulltop have like 3 or 4 clones that monitor the forums, blog, tracker, organize the stuff for conventions, etc. so one can always sleep/relax, while the others are doing their job? Cause he seems to be doing all of those things 24/7 and that's suspiciously much fone one human being.

^ Another piece of evidence for my theory of the entire Staff actually being rainbow zombie llamas, that set up BZP as a ploy to gain money and increase their rainbowness.

I still think it was actually intended to amplify visibility.
