Member account & forum questions ( Moderater help)
« on: January 19, 2016, 10:53:26 AM »
Hello Group ;)
  I had befriended a member here & suddenly "their" account name appears white in color if viewed any of their past post.
   Also I tried to reply to a private message,from this member & the forum interface wouldn't allow..
   

  Could a moderator, please help me understand,what's happened?
  I appreciate the help & apologize if I posted in the wrong area.

I wanted to mention the screen name also says guest under the user name.
 
   In an effort to add details as to why I assume something happened to their account.
      I searched for a area to post regarding forum issues & was unsure where was ok

Torn,

At first I wasn't sure what you meant when you said their username was in white. But then I realized you meant in the original Widda color scheme that has a black background. I long ago changed mine to a more conventional color scheme as described here:

But more to your point, guest means their account was deleted. That's about all I know. Perhaps Jess or Justin can tell you more.

Hi Torn,

Wifeless is correct. Members are allowed to delete their own accounts. When this happens, their posts remain but it shows them as a guest. General Discussion is a fine place to post these kinds of questions, but also don't be shy about PMing any of the moderators or admins. We're here to help. :)

Thanks everyone I wanted to know their ok is all,but I guess if they voluntarily deleted the own account,I suppose they're ok.
    I had feared the worse which is my nature to do these days thanks again
