im taking a total shot in the dark with this cause ive yet to play online but im guessing yellow means the system is on but they are away while red is just offline.

fortris's avatar

No, because one of my friends doesn’t HAVE a light. And apparently he was just on (I can see his avatar now)

Red is being now off from formally being in on “online state” and yellow is idle or your lagging? Thats my guess.

fortris's avatar

No, becaus eim not in a game with thme

“Excuse me” Because IM not in a game with THEM

@fortris There is this really nice looking ”Edit this response” in red font you can click to not double post like a n00b. And if your going to so rude then i suggest you take your question to Yahoo Answers…

p.s. oh look i just did it, BTW, you have 5 mins i believe before you can’t edit it.

Wow, look whos talking “rude” calling people “n00bs” about shit they dont know about! NERD. Who the hell even calls a person a n00b except for noobs?

@fotris Wow, just stop… First, think before you speak, or in this case, think before you type. I’m not being rude at all, I’m calling your ignorant ass a name, look up the definition of rude, and tell me how i was being ill mannered, or socially incorrect in behavior. And i know enough to actually piece together logically about what the colors ACTUALLY do, unlike you, who had to ask, and not form your own opinion on the matter. So what about shit i don’t know? Keep talking….

pst theres actually more than just the three colors you forgot blue and orange.

Also the answer to your question can be found through a simple google search. I was just too lazy to do it earlier so i was just taking a guess.

fortris's avatar

Your being IMMATURE. Thats the name for someone who calls other people names for no socialy acceptable reason. And also, maybe if you HAD THE GAME it would help in figuring it out instead of guessing like an arrogant punk and then proceding to call other people names.

@uberbatman Not in brawl

@fortis yes in brawl. I just booted mine up to make sure ^_^

fortris's avatar

In the friends list?

fortris's avatar

Well if you knew that, what do you THINK they mean? And do you have any instances to back it up?

@iceblu I’m done talking to you, you might as well not post.

iceblu's avatar

@fortris i have the game, but like uberbatman, i don’t play online. Fluther isn’t about someone posting the question and everyone answering the question right the first time. It seemed like after we didn’t no the answer you got pissed and angry by the tone of your response… And the last time i checked “You ask a question.” “We get it to the right people.” ”Everyone discusses the answer.

fortris's avatar

I already said I’m done talking to you. But if you MUST know, I wasn’t angry about the question not being answered. Thats what wikipedia is for. It was a certain cocky person who answered very smugly. And if you actualy read uberbatman’s last two posts, he clearly has been online in brawl.

I’M DONE WITH YOU. GO AWAY.

fortris's avatar

IM DONE WITH YOU.

El_Cadejo's avatar

ALRIGHTY ending this thread now. Its connection speed. Done.

blue is best then green, yellow, orange, and last red.

“Thats what wikipedia is for.“Dont forget Google. I found it on there in less than two minutes of searching.

fortris's avatar

But my friend is offline, how does that explain the yellow?

iceblu's avatar

@fortris Correct me if i’m wrong but you said “instead of guessing like an arrogant punk”, and then asked uberbatman, “what do you THINK they mean?” That being said, if uberbatman thought about what they meant, it could only merely be a guess… which then that statement you said to me is some what hypocritical in a sense..right?

But thats not the case, cause we can now clearly see that it all has to do with connection speed.

This was fun, have to do it again sometimes.

fortris's avatar

He’s been offline for over 22 hours.

El_Cadejo's avatar

That would be because that is what he had last time he was logged on. Again found on google. Also direct quote from the Super Smash Brothers Brawl manual.

“Friends you’ve played with online before will have a colored ball in their profile. This ball indicates the quality of the connection you had in previous games.”

Look at that. The answer was right there with you all this time. ^_^

fortris's avatar

Yay! I don’t know where the manual is though.
