    this is probably a repeated post, but i searched for about an hour to find the info.

    all i want to know is what the little icons next to each thread (like the orange or blue envelopes etc.) mean

    thanks

    When you're in a given forum, a key should be in the bottom left hand corner. :)

    In addition, if you're logged in when viewing a forum and threads, this icon [​IMG] shows that you've posted in that thread (the little white arrow). And over towards the right, this icon [​IMG] shows a thread that you're subscribed to.

    Hope this helps.

    A+s for devilot. :) Also, I think a folder doesn't go "hot" and turn reddish until it reaches the 10th post, or is it the 11th?

    Hover the mouse cursor over it and it reveals its secret:

    Sometimes it shows when I hover the mouse, and other times, not? There are some threads with just 11 or 12 posts which have turned red though. :p :confused:

    But they all have over 150 views. You're right, Oh, Detail Queen. :eek: :D
