    I've looked and I've looked for the answer to this, but I can't find it. What exactly do the different-colored stars represent? And why do some stars have wings on each side of them? Thanks.

    Regular star represents an "original pawnstar". Those are the members who made a voluntary financial contribution to support RHP.

    "Winged pawnstar" represents those who are subscribers, now that the site has a regular subscription option. Many original pawnstars are now regular subscribers as well.

    The color changes from yellow to red based on an individuals' game activity. The more active they are, the more red the star becomes.

    Marc,

    One day I'll stop doing the fun stuff (coding) and do the dull stuff (updating our help files) - so you don't have to answer all these questions.

    Having said that, if you have a spare afternoon, and fancied killing a few hours.... after all, you know this site as well as I do.

    'Chess Host' (user 2) is used to send messages to people who have just registered. Out of curiosity, I checked to see if anyone had replied to him. (it is not a real person - hence the name)

    It is not the first time I have made this mistake. I always forget to change back to myself before posting! D'oh!

    Thanks for the replies. Anyone know at which point the stars change colors? Every 10,000 moves? Every 1,000 games? At 5,000 wins? Just curious.

    100K is the next milestone. What will happen then, I just haven't decided yet....I'm sure I will think of something moderately entertaining.

    You did indeed. I will probably do something not unlike that. But what do I do in 10 years time (!) when Rhymester gets to a million, eh?

    I sent you a e-mail with a idea to use mini-pawns instead of stars after 100k

    Still think 75k is a definite milestone especially for those who will pass 50k and see 100k as being somthing they might just posibly live long enough to achieve - hang on.. that's my differentials being eroded again...
