XF 1.1 Weird Username?

    Okay, I'm still on 1.1.4 (because of expiration).

    I'm using John's wonderful ZeroHour skin.

    Today, out of nowhere, I find this user with a weird username color.

    1. I did not create a usergroup. And I did not have a username color added to show the below result:

    2. I did not allocate a usergroup to this user, at all. Upon checking his profile, there's no usergroup assigned to the account. (In fact, the primary usergroup for the account was "Registered.")

    3. I've never seen ANYTHING like this before today. Ever.

    Is this a possible exploit in xenForo, or a bug with @John's ZeroHour skin? :confused:o_O

    The user is invisible. Can almost guarantee it.
    Liam W, Nudaii and John like this.

    If that is the case, you're members mustn't be big on privacy if you've never seen an invisible user before.

    I've got a few on one of my forums... I just have used some extra code (I think it was by @Brogan) that adds an asterisk before and after their user name.

    Isn't that what vB did, at least with one asterisk..?

    Don't know as I never used vB. Had better fish to fry with myBB. :p

    I actually use brackets ( ) on my site.

    Makes it easy to see at a glance.

    yep... I thought you used brackets - it's just easier for me with the asterisk. I was referring to the code snippet basically. I should have been a little more precise. :whistle:

    Yeah, I realized that after Jeremy posted that it's an invisible user.
