Where can I find out about the forum icons?

Postby Prasadachitta » Tue Feb 24, 2009 3:13 pm

Can someone post what all the different thread states mean. Sometimes there is a red star and sometimes the text is moving and so on. I am referring to the icons next to thread titles. Also any other useful user information would be welcome.

Icons with stars added are threads that you have posted on.

Best as I can tell, the text starts scrolling to indicate a hot topic based on a certain amount of posts (20 maybe?).

And you'll notice that when you read a thread the icon changes to black when you go back to the forum page -- it changes back to red when a new post has been added to the thread since you last clicked on it.

What Tex says about the icons is correct as far as I can tell.

We've also introduced a non-standard "moved" symbol, which is an arrow pointing the right, because the standard "moved" symbol was far too similar to the other ones.

Retro. :)
What is the final conviction that comes when radical attention is razor-edge sharp? That the object of the mind is mind-made (manomaya). (Ven. Ñāṇananda)

Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'.
(Snp 3.6)
