New Forum Icons

Postby arrgee » Thu Jan 17, 2008 4:38 pm

Site Admin, Just wondered what the circular icons are, next to the topic titles and what do they mean ?

Some have red asterisk in top right, others have blue arrow in top left, some have blue text representations, some red and some have padlocks in, oh... and one with an exclamation mark in. :???:

All a bit of a mystery if you ask me. :eek:

A star on any topic means you have posted in it

Image - Announcement
Image - Sticky topic
Image - Read topic
Image - Unread topic
Image - Read topic that you have posted in
Image - Unread topic that you have posted in
Image - Hot topic (25 or more posts)
Image - Locked topic
Image - Moved topic

Image - Attachment
Image - Go to last post in the topic
Image - Go to last unread post in the topic

It looks a bit daunting to me too. There are many default bells and whistles we really don't need and I think they just confuse us simple steam-age folk. I'm in the process of streamlining and restyling, but it will take a while.
