That Cute Little Circle...

Gravitar circle

In the future can we change the color of this circle? It seems so weird to have it grey, and that only people who work at Treehouse can have the green border. Or it could be used as a rank - different colors for how much you have accomplished. Thoughts?

@Paul - You can embed an image with the markdown syntax by using:

![alt text](/path/to/img.jpg "Title")

@James I'm a huge fan of Markdown, and thankfully I know how it works :) My web server was just giving me problems, so I decided just to create a Droplr link.

Have you tried out Markdown plus? It let's you use definition lists, which I'm a huge fan of.

@James Yes, I have. I'm also a fan :)

I'm a fan of the grey for standard users and green for staff. It's a very quick, simple and effective way to pick out a reply by a member of the Treehouse team.

If you think about if everyone had different colours, and you where just looking for posts by Treehouse team members, it would be difficult; they could of course implement something else to identify Treehouse team members but then it just add's complexity that's just not needed! :)

Different ranks would be kinda cool. They're pretty common on all forums generally.
