    Perhaps the Member Info button (or link or whatever it's called) could be made more prominent? It's blue on a blue background, and it's dominated by the member type info ("newbie" and the like) which is black and in bold. I think it would be much more noticeable if it were on the right-hand side, with the join date and the number of posts. If it's impossible to place it there, perhaps it could be in bold instead of the member type info?

    When you hold the cursor over the specific area an event takes place (a text is shown, an alert pops up etc.). More information here:

    Mouseover - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    And here's a live example:

    Tryit Editor v1.5

    Ignore the box in the left, just "mouseover" the image. The event will happen 'onmouseover', it doesn't need to be clicked.

    There are examples on this forum too. For example, when you 'mouseover' the 'Reply to Thread' button it changes its tint of blue. That's because it is set to use another colour when 'onmouseover'.
    Not a teacher.
    Not a native speaker.
    Just a language lover who is majoring in English.

    A 'mouseover' is what you get when you invite a mouse to your house for dinner!!!!

    If you stick your mouse on your own avatar it will give you some information without you having to click- that's a mouseover, unless you're cooking cheese for Amigos4 and his furry friends.

    My iPad does not have a mouse! Instead of doing a 'mouseover', I need to do a 'tapover'!
