On mobile view Richard appears with gold text. At first I blamed caching, and it was a mod thing. But even Rand Al'Thor's name isn't gold in the picture before:

Richards name in golden text

    Maybe because you've visited Richard's profile page before, but not mine? (Also, you need to recharge your mobile.) – Rand al'Thor Feb 21 '16 at 16:22
  • On my (computer) screen, everyone shows up as golden. – Rand al'Thor Feb 21 '16 at 16:23

    Silence is golden, and so am I. – Valorum Feb 21 '16 at 19:16
  • @Richard If you go silent, what color do you turn? – user31178 Feb 23 '16 at 3:08
  • Gold lantern.... – Steve Harrington Feb 23 '16 at 10:25
  • @Richard: Do you reject the standard nickname for Richard? This question looks like a reference to this. .... How is babby formed? Why is Richard golden? – ThePopMachine Feb 25 '16 at 19:11

Because you've visited his profile page.

The CSS make the unvisited link "strong blue".

.comment-user {
    font-weight: 700;
    color: #4A6FB1
}

The exact colour code for visited links is #c18215, which is described as "strong orange".

a:visited,
a:visited>em,
a:active,
a:active>em,
a:hover,
a:hover>em {
    color: #C18215
}

    @AncientSwordRage Or the design that styles visited links tremendously different from unvisited links is. – TARS says Reinstate Monica Feb 21 '16 at 16:48

Because you've visited his profile page. See this screenshot that I just took: enter image description here

Richard is blue there.

After visiting his profile: enter image description here

Look! It's gold!

(Just for fun, I took the shot on the same question that you did. :P)
