It's a little guy about to be slammed in the back by a falling star.

From the blank look on his face it's obvious he doesn't have a clue as to what's about to happen.

It is the "User Profile" icon. To me, it represents the individual who is a star in the eyes of WebmasterWorld. :)

See: [webmasterworld.com...]

It actually comes from the login system of BeOS. The little red guys signify regular users on a BeOS system, and the guys with the stars signify admin users.

I had never noticed that! In fact it seems that only Senior Members and mods/admins have the star.

BeOS! when I think I loaded it up along time ago...
brings back memories.
BTW, how did you get the clearance to use the icon?

Or looks like a fisherman holding a pheasant that was at the wrong place at the wrong time and was hooked out of blue while fly fishing....

Will Brett ever let us know?
