    What is with the different colored dots next to our names? I see the drop down menu when clicked on, but what do the colors represent?

    There is at least one other color - red. It means you are "hiding" (on-line, but not showing as on-line). Only you see it as red, others see it as blue, or "off-line". It is a setting you can control in your profile.
