I know this is trivial, but every time I see how many "users" are currently logged on I think of users in the context of illicit substances.

Maybe "Members"[1] would be better? If it's easy to change.
 1. that has a certain connotation also, but far less obvious, IMO
Go on up you baldhead.

members are dicks

obviously mm, users refers to users of rational thought, and while that unfortunately excludes the theists here, it is unjustifiable behaviour to try to subvert this forum with your call to drug usage....  ;)

I'm guessing users is actually the default term used by the forum software and can't be altered.

But your comments are always welcome, as a fellow Taswegian.

Your problems aren't the sites problems.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.

How do you know we're not 'users'? ;) This site is obviously a front for the biggest drug conspiracy in the world and the whole atheist vs theist thing could all just be a front, all code for people getting their fix. I mean come on we use terms like 'stonewalling' and 'strawman', clearly they're terms related to narcotics. We frequently bring up stoning in the bible too and talk of unicorns too. It's all in the lingo man.

And we would have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for that meddling Aussie. ;)

Changing the heading would mean modifying the board theme template, which requires server-level access.  Only Marshall Brain has that level of access on this forum.

That's what I suspected. Ironically, since I brought this up I no longer seem to notice it. My attention is instead focused on the user 'the-omen', who is regularly logged on, has been a member since 2009 and has never made a post. (but has apparently cast three votes).

I wonder who it is. I sent a PM to say hi, but no response.

I dunno.  That account was on IGI too until I purged the database of accounts with 0 posts to shrink its size and free up the unused usernames. He hasn't remade the account (at least not under that name.)

Must be a professional lurker.
