This should certainly be interesting. Also, it is probably easier to figure out the teams algorithm than the points. We should get to work on figuring it out!

At least it's clear whose team your on in the forums. Everyone has a nice glow around them.

If you're seeing this, I really should be doing other work right about now.

That definitely makes sense.

Edit: Wait, now I'm confused... I have a green bar at the top of the page, and it looks like the green team rectangle is glowing for me on the home page, yet I have orange around my avatar?

Edit #2: Never mind and thanks for the replies... Yeah, the green things must just be indicating the winning team's color. D'oh.

Green is awesome!! This must be based on our answers to the aptitude test. I noticed there is a new HQ thread in the forum. Must be for teams to connect or something?

The color thing is pretty nice. I was wondering why there was a colored bar at the top and everything was glowing.

Hey, what about us mods? Do we get a team? Or can we at least glow too sad

Also, everything's showing as green. Even though I'm supposedly not on the green team. (And people in IRC are saying they're not on the green team yet stuff is showing up green as well.)

The color is the leading team. It just shows who is leading w/o having to look at the homepage ranks.

I'm almost positive it was based on aptitude tests. Those who didn't take it were probably assigned to even out the teams.

I think that it may be random or distributive in some way, since I would imagine there would be more uneven numbers is by other criteria.
