I've been using UG for a few years now, and I still have no idea why some people have a their name banner gold with a medal on the left of their name. I also noticed someone with a red box and a lower case "m" beside their name. What do these things mean?
the 'medal' as it's known is a recognition of the most upvotes and the red m stands for moderator - these users have authority over you on UG.
Oh sweet, thanks! I was trying to see if the site had some kind of legend for all the symbols, but to no avail. Oh well, the more you know!
