Bad Reputation

Hi! I tried using the "contact us" link a few days ago, but I haven't heard back. I haven't been using MDC since the website conversion, since I had a baby in June. However, I'm hoping to start being an active member again soon, but I notice when I post that my name has a red circle next to the "report" button. Does this mean I have a bad reputation? I got an infraction (not sure if that's the right word) about a year ago, because I didn't realize I wasn't allowed to link back to my personal site within a post. However, I haven't done that since I was told not to.


I'm just wondering what I need to do to be considered in good standing.

Hi researchparent. I;m not sure what you're referring to. Can you take a screenshot of what you see and post it here so I can check it out?

Sure. I'm trying to attach a picture that shows my info and your info. At the bottom, next to the exclamation mark inside the triangle is a circle. Mine is red and yours is green. Some people have grey circles (which I assume is neutral), but I haven't noticed anyone else's looking red like mine.

Hmmm...it looks like my attachment didn't work. I'm going to try a different file type, but it's very possible I don't know how to include pictures.


Edited to Add: I guess it worked the first time after all. I think I just needed to refresh my screen for the attachment to show up.

Hi there! That red dot there just indicates online/offline status. AS you can see Cynthia's is gray. When folks are online they are green. I believe red might indicate something else? Perhaps you have your status set to invisible? Let's see what color mine is when I post.

Yep, mine is green. Yours might appear red to you and admin, and gray to everyone else as you may have elected to appear offline? I'm not entirely sure. Check your settings and see if that is the case. It is not tied to reputation though, just online/offline status.

Oh, okay, awesome. Thanks! I don't really care about my visibility status. Just want to makes sure people don't think I'm a bad seed.
