This thread is another reason why the orange names should disappear.
Originally the idea was to make it more obvious who knew what they were talking about. This way when people had a question about a certain product (say Orage outerwear) they could pm the account with the orange Orage name and be pretty confidant that they were going to get a useful reply. This way they could avoid making some thread and getting a bunch of different answers from people talking out of their asses. Likewise if an account with an orange name made a thread about some industry news, you could tell the difference between that and camO's sense of humor.
Great Idea and really could have made the website a better place.
But like any great plan it went to pieces when it hit the playing field. I don't know whether the admins forgot you all were teenage pro/trend whores, or if they had a fleeting trust in your maturity, however you all were obviously not ready for something that would make sense and turned it into a status symbol.
Plus you have a bunch of accounts with orange names where you can't even tell why that name is orange.
