I believe the yellow jersey and red star indicate membership status (.e.g, premium).

An asterisk signifies there's a contract out for you.

The yellow shirt denotes people who don't point their ding dongs down when they micturate and get it all over their shirts and the red dots are for those with a sniper trained on them. Better not stand too close to either.

Those represent different levels of authority in the BF Illuminati sect. The top levels don't have any symbols as they keep their identities secret; don't make them mad or cross them or you'll pay a very dear price for your misdeed.

I do remember getting my yellow jersey from Tom Stormcrowe. I don’t remember why….perhaps for just being a good person…at least i think that’s a possibility
