-Frequently Asked Questions: https://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 (Uploader): 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 as 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: https://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, or perhaps they've been busy with their own lives lately. This title is no reason for disrespect. After all, the user still helped the site by adding even more titles to Otaku-Streamers' ever-growing collection of anime.
NOTE: As of November 21, 2010, all uploaders who have not uploaded a minimum of 100 videos will be switched to inactive uploader status after one month of inactivity.
Blue-Violet (GFX Artist): The GFX artists are responsible for the userbar and medals we are using today.
Pink (Support Admin): The Support Administrator has all the access of both the Moderators and Video Moderators. They are also the person to approach if you have problems with a staff or in need of someone to bug. We currently have two Support Administrators: Bindu1000 (K) and Dudette09 (Small k). Please bother the latter for anything you can think of as she does the same to us whenever she wants.
And, of course,
Red (Administrator): These are the founders of OS. With the help of the full OS staff 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 and of course, they handle further developing Otaku-streamers to be a better site(more than it already is ).
Not all of the colors are completely accurate, but all are as close as I could get them using an HTML hex chart.
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.
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.
