If I ever thought people wouldn't notice a minor thing? Wow..has that border removed that question. I've had a few U2U's over that very thing
before you asked here.
It's related to a glitch which came in relation to beta testing I'd volunteered to help in when SO made the call awhile back for folks to help. I
can't say much more because I don't know much more and it's irrelevant anyway.
If you've been over to see the 5/3 for the 24hr beta, you'll notice no one has borders special from anyone else. Personally, I like that and am not
sorry to see the colored ones go.
When I first got here, I assumed the Silver and Gold borders on people with astronomical numbers (They were to me as a total new guy) were staff. Not
mods, obviously, but I assumed by the clear standout of their border? They had to be lower level volunteer staff or something along those lines.
Of course, I learned different and within a few weeks. Still, it sure lead to some confusion and I'd be shocked if I were the only one to have made
that error. So...No tears from me to see that whole system fade away. At least that aspect of it, at the very least.
