Ok now since I am on my computer, I can hover my mouse over the little boxes, and it is a rep thing. But what I find weird is that, which it was stated above also, all the people who where here before the conversion, have either a gray box or green box with "Unknown quantity at this point" and all the new members with a rank of Aquarium Advice Newbie or Aquarium Advice Apprentice have a green box with "is on a distinguished road"
The link above is the post that I noticed the boxes. If you look at ricky1947, new member with a green box that says "Ricky1947 is on a distinguished road". Zagz been here before the conversion green box with "Zagz Unknown quantity at this point". I know I am just pointing out the obvious. But I wanted to show that all the new members, seem to be working ok with the rep thing, all the people that been here before the conversion seem to have something wrong.
