-Frequently Asked Questions: http://otaku-streamers.com/community...ions-Tutorials
Brown (Retired Staff): This color tag is for members who, for whatever reason, have retired from their former position as a Staff member (instituted August 2012).
Khaki (Uploaders): They provide you with your anime. They convert the videos into a format that can be viewed by all audiences, then upload them to the administrators via MegaUpload. The videos are then uploaded to the site. Anyone can be an uploader, whether short-term or long-term. All you have to do is find the forum (link below) on how to convert the videos, then upload em' for the admins.
NOTE: As of November 21, 2010, all uploaders must upload the entire series they have started or a minimum of 12 videos to gain their uploader status. To permanently remain an uploader, they must upload at least 100 videos. Those who do not will be changed to inactive status after one month of inactivity.
-How to upload: http://otaku-streamers.com/community...-How-to-upload
Yellow-Green (Inactive Uploader): Inactive uploaders are uploaders who fail to upload at least one video per month. Reasons for this vary. For example, the user could have gotten tired of converting videos (it takes a long time and a lot of RAM), or maybe there was just one show the user wanted to share that wasn't already on the site. This title is no reason for disrespect. After all, the user still helped the site by adding even more titles to OtakuStreamers' ever-growing collection of anime.
NOTE: As of November 21, 2010, all uloaders who have not uploaded a minimum of 100 videos will be switched to inactive uploader status after one month of inactivity.
Pink (Support Admin): The only support administrator is Bindu1000. As the name implies, she supports the administrators of OtakuStreamers. Some of the things the support admin does include uploading videos (including those that other uploaders have dropped or given up on), making announcements, and also assisting as a moderator.
And, of course,
Red (Administrator): These are the founders of OS. With the help of the support admin, uploaders, moderators, Super Moderators and of course donators, they run the site. They assist in uploading and moderating, as well as fixing site problems such as video issues or glitches in the site.
Not all of the colors are completely accurate, but all are as close as I could get them using an HTML hex chart.
If a new name color appears and this thread is not updated, please contact me so I can add it. If possible, please give a description of what the new position does, as well as any privileges they may have.
If you are a staff member (Moderator, Uploader, Administrator, etc) and consider one or more of the above descriptions to be inaccurate, please notify me and give a modified description.
Spoiler for Quote from Avich [Administrator]:
In other words: By going to your User Control Panel (User CP) and selecting "Permission Groups" under "Settings", you may change between your current titles. For example, if you are an OS Citizen and an Uploader, you may switch between either the purple or the yellow nametag.
Spoiler for Quote from Evil105:
To those who want to change their usergroup into their other available colors here is a link to the permission groups.
Thanks to CloverLeaf (Fepi), Jbluey (Jim), Bindu1000 (K), Avich (Chiva), Pikel, Ceres, and Evil105 for additional information.
