You are red, I am blue, teachers are green, this is all OK, but there are also other colours. I was wondering about them.

Admin og technical admin are both shades of red, founding members are violet, I thought I was orange, I think those who no longer are members are black.

The legend for the color code for active membrers is at the bottom of the Board Index page. If colors change, they are reflected there.

Black is for currently inactive members whose posts are still on the board. Since they are inactive they don't show on the color legend.

"Niks" here are the same as the "username," like "Dan74" or "unsui". The color of the username shows the "group" that the person has as their default group.

The lable under the username shows the "rank" or role that is usually, but not necessarily, the same as the default group. If you want to see who are the teachers, you can go to the membership list and sort by "rank" and all the teachers are in one place. The user guide for members is posted in the Terms of Service forum.

Some forums have "ranks" (like "user" and "super user") based on how many posts a registered user has posted. ZFI has not adopted that practice.
