Icon Legends?

Post by Lotech Joe » Sat Oct 15, 2011 3:39 pm

Do we have a legend that explains the different icons that appear to the left of each forum topic? Some are blue circles with lines in them and some are red circles with lines. I've even seen one that is a red circle with scrolling lines.
This old man can't figure them out. :scratch:

This is a summary of the new topic icons and what they mean.

Two general points
- Red icons are unread items, blue/grey are read
- A star on any thread means you have posted in it


For example:
Image - Read topic (No one has posted to this topic since your last visit.)
Image - Unread topic (Someone has posted to this topic since your last visit.)
Image - Read topic that you have posted in
Image - Unread topic that you have posted in

Other icon definitions (the blue=read / red=unread rule applies to these as well)
Image - Announcements from the administrators.
Image - Sticky thread
Image - Hot topic
Image - Locked thread
Image - Moved thread
Image - Forum with subforums
Image - Link forum

More icons:
Image - Attachment
Image - Go to last post in the thread
Image - Go to last unread post in the thread
Image - Subforum read
Image - Subforum unread

If that doesn't work for you... all you really needed to do was hover your mouse over the image and it would give you a tooltip letting you know what the icon was for.

Yes that makes a lot of sense.
Look for Wannafish A Lure on FaceBook
He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish.
