It looks like you did add your name to the WikProject XBox here. Shearonink (talk) 19:49, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
If you're referring to Wikipedia:WikiProject Disaster management/Participants, I'm not sure but it looks like this WikiProject is not viable at the present time...the last edit on its "to-do" page is from December 2010 and the last Wikipedian to add their name to the Project's List of Participants did so in June 2011.

Hope this helps, Shearonink (talk) 20:02, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

,well sorry for much questions but why does my name apper purple+er than other users like in wiki project xbox(im last)--Friendly ant (talk) 21:42, 23 March 2012 (UTC)Friendly ant

I'm sorry but I am not sure what you are referring to. I think the color-change you are referring to indicates that you have visited that other page, but am not sure. A lot of how people experience Wikipedia can be tied up with the browser and system they use to access it plus any preferences you have ennabled for you account. I'll ask Mabdul to look in on the issue and you can get his feedback. Shearonink (talk) 22:27, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
It's probably because you've visited your own userpage - visited links are slightly darker (and purpler) than non-visited links. Try going to one of the other users' pages on the list (one that isn't already in a different colour from the default) and then go back and their link should then be darker as well.

hey ive seen users with cool special effects on ther user name how you do that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Friendly ant (talkcontribs)

That's because they specified a particular signature style in their preferences - if you know css, you can do something like this: Friendly ant (talk) using something like the following code:
[[User:Friendly ant|<span style="color:red; text-shadow: 0 2px 5px darkred">Friendly ant</span>]] ([[User talk:Friendly ant|<span style="color:orange; text-shadow: 0 2px 5px darkorange;">talk</span>]])
Or if you want something simpler, such as like this: ~ Friendly ant talk, using the following:
~ [[User:Friendly ant|Friendly ant]] <sup>''[[User talk:Friendly ant|talk]]''</sup>
In there instead, swapping out the styling for whatever you prefer. Basically, read this and follow what it says, make sure you check the 'Treat the above as wiki markup' box if you're changing stylings/layouts (and if you are, be sure you do include a link to your userpage/talkpage), don't break anything, and have fun.
