Update: It worked For Xylo. She simply asked and got privileges.

Update: Just saw it happen on the crocodile suicide story.

I've noticed some of the best comments and best commenters wasting away in the greys and wondered what the key is to getting un-greyed since good commenting seems to be going unnoticed.

I also noticed on three separate occasions, people who simply asked the author to un-grey them, were promptly un-greyed. On another three occasions, I noticed commenters offering the author sex, one of which was deadkittens offering Trotter a rim job, and all three were promptly un-greyed.

I developed a working theory that maybe the key to being un-greyed was to simply ask, or to offer the author sex. Since I'm not above pandering, I decided to test out my theory and offered the author a blow job. Guess what? Promptly un-greyed.
