What's that little red corner icon thing I see on people's profile pictures?
It’s a donation badge.
Some time ago you could donate and you’d either receive a shield, a heart or a drop (of blood) to add to your avatar.
Apparently they are more important than you or I. Or they found the rgb value and added it to their avatar in photoshop.
"Apparently they are more important than you or I."
In that they help pay for the site, yes.
Jan, that still works. Just takes some time to ship the badges apparently. ;-)
One must be persistent. :-) Good things come to those who persist.
