Evidently it's the name for the independence fighters in the TV series Firefly, which I intend to watch, now that we have NetFlix. I think that Geoff (whence the name) is a Firefly fan...

Would somebody tell me the meaning of the "Browncoat" label above my photo, and many others?

How do I get rid of it? Nicknames I can do without.

Yes to all of the above. I can change your nickname if you like or remove entirely (I think). Users can also change their nicknames to whatever their pleasure once they hit the lucky 500 posts.

"Likes" also have their own attendant levels, though I've yet to publish those...

Edit: tried to remove entirely, reverted to Browncoat. Switched back to "Member".

Much better. It reminded me of old men in dirty raincoats like you'd see in a 50s movie.

"Sergeant" might be better for us mid-level posters. If you have a rank it doesn't help if no one knows what it means.
