Depending on the number of reps a person has, their username goes from standard to italicized to bold.

Thanks. Do you think anyone actually know that? I've been here a long time and had no idea. I'm betting most anybody else doesn't either. So just some quick visual indicator that maybe mods are aware of and can use when modding?

Many including myself don't notice or care enough to ask if they did notice. Good catch though.

i can't speak for everyone but i think it's pretty common knowledge for long time loungers (i think that's where i learned about it, but it could have been an old sis thread Dontknow). in any case it's mentioned in the faq thread stickied in hot deals and i've always felt it was a way to tell more seasoned users at a glance. basically a visual representation of the reps, to provide more data to help you determine how trustworthy you think their comments might be.
