Well, let's see. Last night when I saw this question...

I rolled my mouse over the little blue square and it said (I'll use you as an example)
"Hot Run'r Guy is not on any lists".

Now this morning, all it says is your name. I think Scott did something to turn that off now, because I just added you to my friends list and it still only shows your name when I roll my mouse over the little blue box.

So, I guess it means nothing now. ;)

EDIT: Oh wazzzzup with this? Mine is green and says, "Juls is on a distinguished road". HUH?

Ok, I'm totally confused by that now. LOL

Me thinks it has something to do with establishing a "reputation". Notice the little "scale" in the row of icons above it.

You are right HRG, it has to do with "reputation".

I turned that on a couple days ago, you are the first to notice it ;-)

Using the scale you can add to or remove from the reputation of a user.

I thought this might help curb some of the trash talk.

I guess it depends of whether a person cares about his/her reputation or not.

It also should help lend credibility to certain posters information.

If a person has a good reputation then that post could be viewed as more credible in certain cases.

Anyway, that is the thought process behind the little square ;-)
