When you click on active, you get a list of threads that are active at the moment.
Sometimes latest posters names are in blue, rather than black. I always thought the blue means the person is the OP.
But I have seen the occasion that my name was blue but I was not a OP.
What the blue letter mean?

Maybe people with public profiles are in blue?

It still doesn't make sense, since I don't have public profile? And I was blue on some of the thread I posted, but definitely not an OP.

I have no idea then! I didn't see you as blue in active when you were the last poster on this thread. The only blue ones I see are people with profiles.

It's another MN wormhole!

Thank you anyways. smile
It's very weird.
I was puzzled to see my name in blue. And wanted to find out why!

...I see everybody's name in blue! I didn't know they also came in black.

Ime the op is in one colour, me in another, and everyone else in a third. What colours depends on the colour scheme you chose in settings... perhaps in one of them there isn’t much difference in shade in the scheme you are using?

I suspect blue names are logged in online?

bumper, I don't think this has anything to do with the colours in our settings to show the OP and ourselves in different colours on threads.

I think the OP is talking about looking at the list of Active convos, where many names are in black - but some are in blue .... on the list.

This is an example. Emma and Laurie's names are in blue, the rest in black.

Yes, that's it, Pan.

Sorry for asking silly question. I was just curious. Thank you everyone for your response!
